Character and Fitness Matters

Criminal, Civil, Past of Current Unpaid and Delinquent Debt, Improper Conduct Disclosure Consulting for Prospective and Current law Students, or Applicants to the bar. 

Character and fitness are a term that most laypeople, or those thinking of going to law school, know little about.  However, if you are thinking of going to law school, or a prospective, current, or recently graduated law student, stop what you are doing now and listen.  This is especially true if you have anything in your background such as not meeting financial responsibilities, arrests, convictions, addiction issues, dealings with law enforcement, academic misconduct, and other similar items.

 

Every year many students rush through his or her law school application and wonder why the application asks about every little deal of police interaction, lawsuits you’ve been involved with, and debts you haven’t paid.  The schools are not asking that just to be nosy.  They are asking these questions because when you graduate law school if you take the bar, those questions and more will be asked in your bar application to determine whether you have the requisite character and fitness to be licensed to practice law in the jurisdiction you’re applying.  Those bar examiners will have your law school application and will compare it with the bar application. 

 

Committees on Character and fitness are concerned with your present character and general fitness to practice law.  How you think about your past mistakes, how you address, fix, confront, and rehabilitate are all essential to how quickly you will receive your license even after you graduate law school, and pass the bar.  Specific steps show these licensing boards you have rehabilitated.  Those steps are not always obvious.   Our office stands ready and willing to help you through these processes.
