What kind of inquiry will be conducted if my record includes a history of psychiatric or psychological counseling?

Board members recognize that the stresses of law school, as well as other life factors, frequently result in applicants seeking psychiatric or psychological counseling. The Board encourages you to obtain such counseling or treatment if you believe you might benefit from it. Only severe forms of mental or emotional problems which are related to your ability to practice law may warrant further inquiry during the bar admission process. Isolated instances or short-term consultations for conditions associated with emotional stress or anxiety are not of concern to the Board.
