Question for law students
« on: December 12, 2004, 12:23:17 PM »
Would the following "misconduct," if fully disclosed, prevent one from being admitted to law school, or to the State Bar... Being asked to resign from your place of employment (as  freedom of information officer) for using office resources (phone, fax) for making personal freedom of information requests?

I would guess not, but I think the place to ask is your state supreme court.

The whole point of asking someone to resign as opposed to firing them is to *not* fire them but have them resign.

If you resigned, there is no misconduct... so no need to disclose anything.
Wouldn't it be grand if our Department of Defense was not offensive?

There shouldn't be a problem, but if you're really concerned you should contact your state's bar examiner organization and ask.  Usually the character & fitness application questions center on conduct like criminal convictions so it probably won't come up when you're applying for bar admission.
