Elana Nightingale Dawson and the Greatest Bar Story Ever

This is why it’s impossible to articulate the bar exam to the uninitiated:

A very pregnant Nightingale Dawson, 29, had finished the morning portion of the multiple-choice test Wednesday and had started on the three-hour afternoon part when she went into labor. She had contractions about every 20 to 30 minutes, then about every 15 minutes, she said, and at one point a proctor asked if she was OK.

She finished the test, she birthed the baby, she went on to her clerkship. Nothing, not anything, will stop a bar candidate from finishing that test.
