hearing her pleas


her lies

  • Here’s a good review of the bar admission Character and Fitness Process (Mich. Bar Journal, by John T. Berry, June 2003)

    • And a sobering fact (cf. prior discussion here and here):
      [T]he most common reason for character and fitness denial is lack of candor to the committee,

      either by a false or misleading statement on the affidavit, or during the interview or hearing process,

      not some particular bad act.  Indeed, the committee is particularly sensitive to the applicant’s ability

      to handle and resolve any past problems and candor relating to such problems.”

    • “The types of conduct that most often result in ultimate denials are lack of candor, neglect of financial responsibilities, conduct during involvement in civil litigation, criminal convictions, and employment terminations.”

  • Mass. AG Reilly asks bar advocates to “accept cases at the new, higher rates while the commission [studying how to build a more effective public defender system] does its work.” (Boston Globe, Sept 10, 2004)
