I'm not completely sure what is considered "minor." IMO, it would be something like speeding tickets, no seatbelt, failure to stop at a stop sign. I would think it is anything that you only get a ticket for and no bodily harm is done. No jailtime, just appear, pay the ticket, and in a few years it drops off your record. But I am not really sure... When I did the applications, I figured if my insurance company didn't see it as a big deal (only increased my premiums for a little bit) then why should law school?
