Lessons in Lawyering..

 LA Times - June 1 1998  

In California, more than 600 soon-to-be lawyers were taking the State
Bar exams in the Pasadena Convention Center when a 50 year old man
taking the test suffered a heart attack. Only two of the 600 test
takers, John Leslie and Eunice Morgan, stopped to help the man. They
administered CPR until paramedics arrived, then resumed taking the exam.
policy,the test supervisor refused to allow the two additional time to
make up for the 40 minutes they spent helping the victim. Jerome Braun,
the state Bar's senior executive for admissions, backed the decision
stating "If these two want to be lawyers, they should learn a lesson
about priorities."
