This Mom Returned to Law School One Day After Having a Baby, So the Judge at Her Swearing-In Ceremony Did Something Really Special

Juliana Lamar, 27, recently fulfilled her dream of becoming a lawyer and had her one-year-old son there to cheer her on, thanks to the judge officiating the ceremony.

Lamar was sworn in as a lawyer at the Tennessee Supreme Court in Nashville with her whole family by her side. Judge Richard Dinkins, who presided over the ceremony, saw her son, Beckham, and wanted to make sure he was part of the celebration too.

“Just as we’re about to begin, he goes to grab Beckham and says, ‘He needs to be part of this. He’s going to do the swearing-in with me,’” Lamar told CNN. “While we were doing the swearing-in, Beckham is just sitting there with his hand up, and it was just such an amazing experience.”

Lamar wasn’t sure she would make it through law school after getting pregnant about halfway through the program at Belmont University College of Law.

“Law school is a journey on its own for anyone, whether they’re a parent or not,” she said. “Law school is probably one of the hardest things that anyone can do.”

Lamar gave birth to Beckham last October and returned to class the next day to ensure she didn’t miss anything.

“To have my son who means the world to me and is the person I do everything for, to have him right there watching his mommy just was amazing,” she said. “He is the guiding light in my life.”

Congratulations, mama!
