What can a student do to help expedite a successful bar admissions process?
Don't procrastinate and miss your deadlines for applying. Be honest in the application process. If you have a problem of some sort, seek help a soon as possible. Ignoring a problem such as substance abuse, a past DUI arrest, or troubled credit will not help. However, given that the application process starts two years before graduation, the applicant has time to rehabilitate the potential problem. The LSBA and the law schools in Louisiana plan to have panels of volunteer lawyers to help assist students with potential problems. Presentations on these Bar Admission issues will be held in all four law schools the spring semester each year.
