Omarr Rambert, a recent UCLA School of Law graduate, decided in fifth grade he wanted to be a lawyer and described passing the exam as “the greatest accomplishment” of his life.
“I was the first male in my family to go to college, let alone law school,” he said.
Rambert lost his stepfather, the songwriter LaShawn Daniels, in a fatal car crash in 2019, during his final year of law school. Despite the pain of losing of one of his “biggest supporters,” he pushed on and finished “the mission because that’s what [Daniels] wanted.”
“I graduated UCLA School of Law that same year, had a virtual graduation ceremony because of COVID-19, and began the process of studying for the California Bar Exam,” he said. “The CA Bar Exam is considered the hardest in the nation, and I passed due to God and hard work.”
