"Member of the Bar" as a personal reference for C&F

The state I am applying to requires at least one of your personal references to be a member of the Bar. I don't have any close friends who are already lawyers. Does anyone know if it is normal to ask a supervisor from a summer job, or would that be weird?

Not weird at all. Expected, even. Just be sure you did a good job that summer.

I'm pretty sure this is standard practice.
