New York State Bar Admission
The application process may seem daunting for some and even more so for individuals who may have somewhat of a blemished past. You are asked to list your past employments, arrest, and disciplinary action and depending on when you are submitting this application you may have a very long past with a few bumps along the way. This may lead to many uncertainties and questions as to what is necessary to list and what is not. Questions such as: How will they view a prior traffic violation? What if I was accused of improper conduct on the Bar Exam? What if I have a past addiction? What if during high school before I started thinking seriously about my future, I was suspended or placed on probation? What if I don’t remember everywhere I worked for the last 10 years? What if I am going through a financially difficult time and have debt past due for more than 90 days? I owe child support—must I report it? These and many more questions may arise.
Even if, you think you have crafted the perfect response to all these or other queries that may have needed a little explaining, it is possible that having someone review your application for completeness and accuracy could be very beneficial.
