What kind of inquiry will be conducted if I have had a history of drug or alcohol abuse or addiction, or treatment for either?

Because evidence of current or recent substance abuse is one of the "relevant conduct" factors about which the Board must inquire, you should be prepared to provide treatment records, as well as other records of incidents which were associated with the addictive behavior. The Executive Director may offer you the option to delay your initial character and fitness determination for a period of time. During this time you have the option to schedule a chemical dependency evaluation. The confidential chemical dependency evaluation report will be added to your bar application, which will allow the Executive Director to conduct a more thorough review and render a character and fitness determination.
