Nation IN BRIEF : NEW YORK : John F. Kennedy Jr. Passes Bar Exam

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

John F. Kennedy Jr., 29, finally passed the New York State bar exam on his third try, the New York Post reported. The only son of the assassinated President also passed the Connecticut state bar exam, allowing him to practice law in that state, judicial officials said Friday. If Kennedy had failed on his third attempt, he would have been out as a prosecutor in the office of the Manhattan district attorney. Kennedy graduated from New York University Law School in 1989. He has been assigned to a unit that focuses on white-collar crime, low-level political corruption and other felonies. His sister, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, 32, passed the bar exam on her first attempt three years ago.
