Her time management skills are fantastic.

Having taken the bar exam, and therefore prepped for the bar exam, I get it.

So she just pushed on?

Had a classmate who's water broke during criminal law final. She finished test. She AmJur-ed that class, and a couple others.

Women are amazing and a bit frightening.

To paraphrase a comedian:
"I don't get women...they pour hot, molten wax on their body, rip it off yanking the body hairs out down to the roots, then come screaming out of the bathroom because they saw a cockroach"

Imagine how she felt!

Well...no man could ever do that.

How do you know she doesn't identify as a man?

She's tougher than any man I've ever met.

From what I've seen, current online bar exams require you to be on screen the whole time so they can be sure you aren't cheating.

Did she give birth fully on webcam?
 
2020-10-11 8:27:07 AM  
Would have been better if she gave her son a legal name or if it was a girl name her Ruth.
 
2020-10-11 8:41:13 AM  
Wait, is that one of the new requirements?
 
2020-10-11 8:45:32 AM  
Don't know anyone who gave birth during the test, but I know a lady who may have conceived.

My son took it virtually last week. He had to keep his camera on to be monitored throughout, was allowed only a pad and pencil and was not allowed to look away from the screen for more than four seconds at a time.

A lot of people had feed problems or trouble logging on and the official response was 'Sorry, try again in February."

Lucky for her it happened during a break

Or Mame.  Or Jane.

She passed more than the exam, then?

If the son was actually born on-screen call him Regis, if it was a grrrl call her Kathi Lee

Going threw all that and failing would be the worst.

The bar exam is a two day test. She gave birth during the interim between the two testing days.

One more of the infinite number of reasons the bar exam is a ridiculous and stupid waste of time. It serves no purpose but to steal money and time from applicants.

That's 90% of a lawyer's job. Ya always have 10 cases on hold.

/same with most jobs. If Yer only getting one job at a time, maybe you need better management, or another     profession.

The babby in the pic hasn't even dried off yet. Goddamn.

My brother pulled off something similar . Not the giving birth part obviously but the becoming a parent part . His first child was born in  the night before his final exam to become a professional firefighter .  Baby born around 4 am and the exam started at 8 about an hour away from the hospital .

So far I have heard:
Earthquake during exam (exam was not stopped)
Flu during exam (seated at end of row, given bucket)
Water broke during exam (kept taking exam, delivered that night)

They are just evil evil people.

Gyrfalcon: They are just evil evil people.


I heard tale of someone pissing himself during the online bar. (grain of salt)
Another gal who couldn't leave when she got her period.

I took it in-person in July, wearing a mask the whole time both days, worrying about getting sick. Mr. zobear had to leave the house for 10 days in case I did catch it. I took a covid test (negative, thank goodness), so he could come back a little sooner. We had one asymptomatic person sit both days without knowing she had it. It was only a matter of numbers.

There was no sympathy whatsoever from the examiners, supreme court, or any state/local bar assn.

I think it was all bullshiat.

I was in the typing room for the bar exam.  The woman in front of me brought three typewriters.  I thought that was ridiculous.  Then two of her typewriters broke during the exam.

Her future boss finds that out he's not going to give her any slack when she needs time off for the kids.

Your state must be pretty lenient. Some states wouldn't let women bring in feminine hygiene products. I guess they thought we would write the answers on our tampons.

If it was a son he could be Bader!

Or better shoes for chasing the ambulances.

I really like this headline!

Now these are the headlines we need to see in Top Voted, not it being flooded by political headlines.

She was like "I'm gonna take this test", and her baby was all "OBJECTION!"
