Take The Bar Exam, Have a Baby, Finish The Bar Exam!


Brianna Hill just graduated from law school at Loyola University in Chicago, and at 38 weeks pregnant was taking the first part of the Illinois bar exam at home. No problem! Except...her water broke about halfway through the exam.

So what to do? Well, she took a break and cleaned herself up before starting the second part of the exam. Her midwife told her she had time, so Brianna continued the test right up till the time she had to leave for the hospital. Little Cassius Phillip Andrew was born less than five hours after his mother arrived. But she wasn't finished the exam, so he staff at the hospital set up a room for her to finish the next day. She won't know if she passed until early December, but she has a healthy baby boy. Congratulations!
