Whether you have already been contacted by the FBBE about a bar admissions issue or you are concerned about a possible issue, it is critical to seek legal advice now rather than later
Do not fool yourself if you think “they couldn’t possibly find out.”
The FBBE scrupulously reviews each law student’s application of admission to the bar. This includes past indiscretions. What is of particular concern is an applicant’s “character and fitness.”
Omissions on an application will only lead the board to investigate further. Whether you are facing further inquiry or need assistance with a “gray” area, it is always better to double-check, rather than be scrambling when it may be too late.
Give yourself a fighting chance to achieve your longtime goal of being a lawyer.
