Father-Daughter Duo Await Bar Results

Article Placeholder Image
By William Vogeler, Esq. on April 01, 2019 2:07 PM

Like many father-daughter duos, Sarah Smith and Tim Smith do a lot of things together.

Take for instance, the law. The pair entered law school, joined the same study group, and took the bar exam together. Now they're waiting for test scores and hoping they will celebrate together.

'Phenomenal Experience'

The Smiths are cut from the same cloth in another way: they are both optimists. Or maybe they just like the law a lot. Dad says law school was "a phenomenal experience." Daughter says she "loved" legal drafting.

Their law life together started in 2015, when they began taking night classes and working day jobs. He was a patent agent; she worked in human resources.

Sometimes, it was a drain on other family members. They set up a jar for dollar bills whenever the law students started a "legal discussion."

Legal Discussions

The Smiths graduated from the University of Akron in December, and sat for the Ohio bar in February. Results are due in April. In the meantime, they are processing their experience. It helped that they had each other to get through it.

"Personally, I thought it was the coolest thing ever," Tim said.
