American teen is youngest person ever to pass British bar exam

A teenager has become the youngest person to qualify as a barrister in the 600 year history of the profession – so she can work in the Bahamas. American student Gabrielle Turnquest was called to the Bar of England and Wales after passing her exams at just 18.

Gabrielle has already made history at her previous university, Liberty University in Virginia, where she was the youngest person to finish an undergraduate degree there, in psychology, at the age of 16. Reported in  The Telegraph
