Kristin Pagano Speaks: Breastfeeding Accommodations and the Illinois Bar Exam

Sunny Choi writes, "As some of you may already know, the case of Kristin Pagano has been highlighted recently in various media outlets. Ms. Pagano submitted a breastfeeding accommodations request to the Illinois Board with respect to the February 2015 Illinois bar exam. Her request was denied by the Illinois Board. After she asked for reconsideration of the decision, I’m happy to report that Ms. Pagano has won her battle and the Illinois Board will be granting her accommodations. Ms. Pagano reached out to Ms. JD with her story, which is re-printed below from her blog with her permission. We believe that her story may be helpful and inspiring to those in a similar situation."
