Question: My husband just took the bar exam a few weeks ago. He is working now as a clerk and waiting for results. He put himself through part-time law school, and he is really dedicated to his career, which is great. I've supported him since the beginning. I knew that when he was studying for the bar, I would be taking up most of the house and child care, and that was fine. What I didn't expect was to be such an emotional support for him. I didn't say anything when he was studying because I wanted him to succeed and there was an end date in sight.

PHILLY-BASED NFL agent Ed Wasielewski, who heads what he acknowledges is a "boutique" agency, EMG Sports, gains a higher national profile starting Tuesday with the debut of "The Agent," an Esquire Network series that focuses on four people plying their trade in the sport that obsesses much of America. Wasielewski and New York-based producer Amani Martin came up with the concept, Wasielewski said. As part of their pitch, they used a Daily News story written three years ago, in which Zach Berman, now with the Inquirer, shadowed Wasielewski during the 2012 NFL draft.

Philadelphia advanced 15 judges closer to the city benches Tuesday - including several who were previously filling vacancies, and one with a disciplinary record. The winners of the Democratic primary - most of whom are expected to win the general election - will make up close to 10 percent of the bench in an election year with many vacancies. Voters had to choose from 52 names on the ballot - a record number in recent history - after a rush of candidates signed up for a shot this year.

Terrifying brain surgery a few months after Teena Handline's wedding prevented her and her husband from going on a honeymoon in 2011. While recovering in the ICU from the surgery, Handline said there was one thing that kept her sane: music.

A story Sunday about the potential toxic effects of acetaminophen wrongly included oxycodone in the list of medications that contain the drug. A column Sunday incorrectly identified the agency that cited PATCO about broken elevators and escalators. It is the Federal Transit Administration.

He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Law, but did not take the bar exam and has never practiced law. A story Monday about the Philadelphia Film Society Theater at the Roxy misstated ticket prices.

It is the last agonizing hurdle of law school, and it takes place after graduation. Each summer and fall, thousands of law students nationwide throw themselves into frenzied review courses in advance of taking the bar exam. They spend hundreds of hours and often quite a bit of money cramming for a test that will, for most, decide whether the three preceding years lead to a career or were merely a futile exercise. This torment typically has been the newly graduated law student's alone to bear.

Hello there When Lauren, 29, began law school at the University of Pennsylvania in fall 2005, she thought she had a pretty good idea where life was taking her: She'd marry a Jewish guy and they'd settle in Philadelphia, or possibly New York. Early that semester on a group outing to a 76ers game, Lauren met Paulo, an MBA candidate from Brazil. He was attractive, smart, fun, and interested in her. And there was a certain chemistry between them. But Paulo did not fit her plan. "He's not Jewish, he's leaving soon [to return to Brazil]

LOS ANGELES - It was too expensive. It lacked editorial focus. And for a digital publication, it was strangely cut off from the Internet. That's the obituary being written in real time through posts, tweets and online chats about The Daily, the first-of-its-kind iPad newspaper, which is being shut down this month. Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. said Monday that The Daily will publish its final issue on Dec. 15, less than two years after its January 2011 launch. The app has already been removed from Apple's iTunes, where it once received lukewarm ratings.
