Regulation graduate compelled to throw up within the trash can whereas taking the distant bar examination

– Johnny Carver, a graduate of the University of Miami School of Law, comments on his Florida bar exam experience. The day before the test, Carver was so sick he had to go to the emergency room, where he tested negative for COVID-19 and flu.
