PHOTOS Porn star lawyer passes nation’s hardest bar exam

Congratulations are due to Ms. Heather Swift, who might be better known by the name Holly Price.

As Price, she’s a former adult film star who can boast of such titles as “Boner for the Owner,” “Out of Her Element,” “MILF Soup 23,” and “Seduced By A Cougar 25.”

As Swift, she’s the newest member of the California State Bar, and is therefore allowed to practice law in the state.

Swift’s accomplishment is all the more notable because the California Bar is notoriously difficult: last year, only 48.6 percent of the people who took the test actually passed it.

And Swift had some top-shelf snark for everyone who thinks less of her because she’s a porn star–something she made very clear in an e-mail to noted law blog Above the Law:

 

I took the July 2014 California Bar Exam (my first time taking any bar exam), and I PASSED. No, I did not get time and a half, nor do I have any inside connections to the California State Bar. …

How did I do it? Because unbeknownst to many, women in the adult industry are intelligent and can matriculate through a cutthroat tier 3 law school, and pass the hardest bar exam in history. Unlike Miriam Weeks, I actually did graduate through law school, and I actually did pass the most difficult bar exam on my first attempt.

Perhaps society needs to relinquish stereotypes and overcome their jealousy.

Swift attended Western State University College of Law. It’s an unranked law school, though its now most-famous graduate asserts that the tier three school is nonetheless “cutthroat.”

And there must be at least some truth to that assertion: According to Above the Law, 75% of Western State’s first-time takers passed the bar.

For those of you stuck staring at Ms. Swift’s photos: 75 is higher than 48.6.

Heather ended her e-mail with a lovely parting shot:

 

As for those who snicker at women in the adult industry and who couldn’t pass the exam, stop laughing because a stripper porn star is apparently smarter than you.

 

Kudos to you, Ms. Swift. You’ve done good work shattering a stereotype, and given distraught Lisa Ann fans the world over something new to fantasize about.
