Chinese lawyers ordered to save their mothers over girlfriends

If you think your law exams are tough, be thankful you’re not studying in China.

China’s national judicial examination for future lawyers this year posed a difficult question: ”If forced to choose, would you save your mother or your girlfriend from a burning building?”

There is a correct answer – according the Chinese Ministry of Justice, anyway. You should save your mother. ”It would be a ’crime of non-action’ to choose romantic love over filial duty,” reports the BBC.

The exam remains silent on what those lawyers who have a boyfriend should do.
