Woman takes bar exam while in labor

If any union needs a tough adjudicator, someone who knows how to power through tumultuous situations, they might start with Brianna Hill, a law student at Loyola University in Chicago who took her bar exam while in labor. [ABC7 News]

Hill started taking the bar exam remotely from her home, due to the Covid pandemic's in-person test-taking restrictions, when she went into labor.

She dealt with her pain and water-breaking issues, finished the first part of the 2-day exam and then went to the hospital. The next day she was allowed to take the second portion of the test from a private room where she breastfed her newborn. She recovered from delivery, nursed her son and completed her bar exam; Hill gets her results in December.
