But could they take off their pants?

As if the bar exam isn’t already sufficiently sweat-inducing:

Hundreds of aspiring lawyers felt the heat this week when a cooling system failed in the hotel ballrooms where they were taking the sweat-inducing state bar exam.

With temperatures outside climbing into the 90s on Tuesday, the 400 test takers in two Clarion Hotel ballrooms felt the rooms grow uncomfortably and distractingly — warm, according to law-school graduates who took the exam. While women are allowed to dress casually during the two-day test, men are required to wear ties.

“They were fairly miserable,” recalled Don Blake, an employee of the Clarion Hotel where the test was administered.
