An Important Notice to All Applicants Concerning Academic Integrity and Bar Admission:
In applying to law school, you are seeking to join an honorable profession that imposes professional responsibilities on its members. One of these responsibilities is the duty of honesty. It is important to think of this duty as beginning now, with the filing of your admission application, and continuing throughout your time in law school. You will observe that, by signing your application, you certify that your application is complete and accurate. After graduation, when you apply for admission to a state bar, the bar will inquire whether you committed any act of dishonesty while a law student. Some state bars will check your law school admission application for honesty. Dishonesty while a law student or on the admission application is an extremely serious obstacle to gaining admission to the practice of law.
Please take care to make sure that you are fulfilling your duty of honesty and that your application is complete and accurate.
Bar admission requirements vary from state to state. Before beginning law school, you should obtain information regarding the character, fitness, and other qualifications for bar admission in the state or states in which you intend to practice.
