Congratulations, Holly Price !
Although it’s a shame that an adult performer achieving excellence might be considered unusual by some…. this was posted today at AboveTheLaw —
As we mentioned this morning, the California bar exam had one of its lowest pass rates in almost a decade. Just 48.6 percent of test-takers passed the exam, which is quite unfortunate. The Los Angeles Times notes that the pass rate for July 2014 represents nearly a 7 percentage point dip from July 2013’s pass rate. The last time less than half of bar examinees passed, it was 2005.
There was at least one extremely colorful character who was able to pass the exam, though, and she just so happens to work in the adult entertainment industry. While exam scores were going down, so was she — in more ways than one.
Meet Heather Swift. She’s a 2013 graduate of Western State University College of Law, which is accredited by the American Bar Association. Last year, about 75 percent of first-time takers from the school passed the California bar exam. Swift, who told us that she’s a former porn star who’s currently employed as a stripper (does that count as a J.D. Advantage job?), passed the exam this summer.
