General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / misdemeanor question
« on: January 27, 2012, 04:57:54 AM »
Hello all,

This question closely resembles a previous thread:

http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/index.php?topic=4020411.0

Now, what would the response be if the Class A misdemeanor occurred in a different state than one's home state and place of study/practice?  For applying purposes, I understand that it is advisable to either mention it or not in the beginning, while applying.  An applicant is, based on the honor system, expected to state it in the beginning of course but in the above thread there was talk about how it is common to hold off until after acceptance, but to definitely bring it up to the dean at that point. 

What if the misdemeanor happened in one state and I go to a school in a different state altogether, where I attend, graduate and eventually pass the bar?  Will the school or the bar come across a conviction (expunged or not) from another state?  Do you advise the same--disclose it anyway, or will the record most likely not show?

Thank you.
