Judge praised for holding lawyer's baby while he swore her in

By

A Tennessee judge is earning plenty of praise online after he made a new lawyer's swearing in to the state bar even more special by offering to hold her baby son as he administered her oath. 

Juliana Lamar, who graduated from Belmont University College of Law, earned her right to practice law last week.

Among those attending her swearing in ceremony was her 1-year-old son Beckham. Beckham, who was born while Lamar was studying, got to be a part of the ceremony after Judge Richard Dinkins offered to hold the baby while he administered the oath.
