PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) — A 70-year-old grandmother is studying for the bar exam after graduating from law school.

Sandra Wilson received her law degree in May from Faulkner University in Montgomery, Ala.

Now, she's looking forward to starting a new career. But first up is the bar exam, which she hopes to take this summer. Then she'll look for a job.

She told the News Herald of Panama City ( ) she's not driven by money. She wants to help others and may specialize in children's law — perhaps as a child advocate.

Steve Wilson was in his wife's corner through three years of law school. On June 1, the couple celebrated 50 years of marriage.
