Glasses on, Peter Park has a superpower, but it isn’t spinning webs and catching thieves just like flies, it’s a brilliant brain that has seen him become the youngest attorney in California’s history.
In a legal history-making moment, the Korean American currently working at the Tulare County District Attorney’s office as a law clerk passed the rigorous California bar exam on his first attempt, making him the youngest person to ever pass the exam at age 17.
At the age of 13, in 2019, Park began high school at Oxford Academy in Cypress, CA. Simultaneously, Park enrolled in a four-year juris doctor program at Northwestern California University School of Law utilizing a state bar rule that allows students to apply to law school through the completion of College Level Proficiency Exams (CLEPS).
After graduating high school in 2021 Park focused on law school and graduated in 2023.
“It was not easy, but it was worth it. It required discipline and strategy to pass the Bar, and I made it in the end. I am extremely blessed to have discovered this path, and my hope is that more people will realize that alternative paths exist to becoming an attorney,” Park said.
“I aspire to become a prosecutor because I am driven by a moral obligation to uphold liberty, equality, and justice in society. I admire how prosecutors keep our community safe and bring closure to victims.”
California is considered the nation’s toughest bar exam along with Delaware. Half of all attempts fail.
