Amendments to Law School Application

Students are strongly urged to review their submitted Law School application for accuracy. Of particular importance are the Character and Fitness questions on your application:

Have you ever been placed on probation, dropped, suspended, expelled, or otherwise been subjected to discipline by any institution of learning above elementary school level for conduct which might reflect upon your character?

Have you ever, either as an adult or a juvenile, been cited, arrested, taken into custody, charged with, indicated, convicted or tried for, or pleaded guilty to, the commission of any felony or misdemeanor or the violation of any law, or been the subject of any juvenile delinquency or youthful offender proceeding?  Traffic violations that occurred more than ten years before the filing of this application need not be reported, except alcohol- or drug-related traffic violations, which must be reported in all cases, irrespective of when they occurred. Do not report parking violations. Note: Although a conviction may have been expunged from the records by order of a court, it nevertheless should be disclosed. 

Have you ever been a complainant, party or witness to or otherwise involved in any civil or criminal action, proceeding or investigation?

Students are required to immediately contact the Office of Student Affairs in Room 4-101, to amend, correct or update any information contained in their official Law School application. Even after admission to the Law School, students have an ongoing obligation to verify and update the information provided on their Law School application. Misrepresentations and omissions of information on the Law School application and delays in amending an application may be grounds for discipline and expulsion. These misrepresentations and omissions of information on the Law School application are reported to Bar authorities and may be grounds for denial of admission to the Bar.
