Attention students graduating in December 2010, May 2011, or August 2011:
On Tuesday, November 9, at 1:00 p.m., representatives from the Kentucky Office of Bar Admissions, including Mr. Grant Helman, Chair of the Character and Fitness Committee, will present a mandatory bar program for graduating law students on candor and related bar issues you may face when applying to take the bar.
ABA Standard 302(a)(5) requires that each student receive substantial instruction in “the history, goals, structure, values, rules and responsibilities of the legal profession and its members.” In addition, Interpretation 302-6 requires that the School of Law “involve members of the bench and bar in the instruction required by Standard 302(a)(5).” This program is designed to provide instruction on professionalism issues concerning law students and lawyers and also to satisfy the ABA’s requirement in Standard 302(a)(5).
Your attendance at the November 9 program is a requirement for graduation. Please mark your calendars now and plan to attend. If you have an absolute conflict that will prohibit you from attending the November 9 program, you must notify Dean Bean so that alternative arrangements can be made.
Graduating students planning to take the KY Bar Exam in July 2011, or February 2012, will receive a handout during the November 9 program providing instructions on completing the Kentucky Bar Application. A separate program focusing on the Kentucky Bar Exam will be offered on January 11, 2011, at 12:15 p.m. All graduating students taking the KY Bar Exam are strongly encouraged to attend this program.
