As part of the New York State Bar Exam, each jurisdiction for which applicants are seeking admission to the bar requires the applicant to submit a Character and Fitness evaluation. This process enables applicants to show that they possess the personal qualities required to practice law and have the necessary character to justify the trust and confidence that clients, the public, and the legal system will place in them. In this program, panelists will discuss:
  • Why the Character and Fitness process exists and the duties of the profession
  • The questions about criminal and school discipline, as well as disability
  • Categories of concern, including arrests, convictions, academic honesty, legal employer/work and handling mental health questions
  • The interplay the Character and Fitness exam has with the admissions process
  • Their experiences with the Character and Fitness exam and how you can better prepare for it
