The NY Lawyer Assistance Trust has developed this brochure about the character and fitness requirements for admission to practice law in NY. (Click on pictures to enlarge.) I encourage you to review this brochure now, so that you do not encounter any surprises when it's time to go before the Character and Fitness Committee. An electronic version of the brochure can be found at www.nylat.org/publications/brochures/documents/CharacterandFitnessBrochure.pdf.
We are organizing several "brown bag" advisement lunches and dinners with your professors for the fall semester. These sessions will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about a particular area of law, to ask questions about upper-level electives and course sequencing, and to learn a little more about some of your favorite professors. You bring your lunch or dinner, we'll bring your professors! Look for more information in the Touro Times.
