In many states, including New York, it is required that a person obtain a law degree before being allowed to take the BAR exam. Mike has only ever taken the exam for other people. Then, in order to be a representative in legal proceedings, a person must have passed the BAR.

Additionally, there is the prestige that the firm receives from only employing Harvard graduates.
