Dude peeing in an elevator, that’s classic. And one with a camera. I love it, you get 4/5 stars.
But in my view you gotta disclose it. You might as well make it funny too. I say you gotta disclose it because when I filled out my bar app they basically worded like if you have ever even talked to a cop in your life we want to know about. They had a question like have you ever been cited, question, stopped, contacted, asked or been involved with any investigation by any law enforcement, regulatory, security of public official. And then, after you answer 49 individual questions about everything you have ever done in your life, even shit you never got caught for they end it with one last great catchall question: Is there anything in your history that you have not disclosed to us so far that might have any bearing, no matter how remote, on your application or fitness to practice law?” OUCH.
No getting around it. You will have to disclose it on your bar app, and if its not on LS app that just gives them plenty of reason to call you in front of C&F and grill you about the whole damn incident. But here’s the good part, they don’t really care what you did so long as you tell them about it. But if you don’t tell them and they find out, man they get MAD!
They are not likely to keep you out of the profession because you peed in an elevator. I know people with felonies that got admitted. Multiple DUIs, no problem, an ounce of pot, no problem. Lieing about two speeding tickets you got in third year of law school and they catch you? PROBLEM.
This is no big deal. Won’t be a big deal in your applications. Say what you said here, you realize you were a dumbass, you got caught, and since then you have learned a valuable lesson, you don’t drink as much as you used to and you don’t get so drunk you pee in metal boxes anymore. You all grown up now. You will be fine, just disclose it and spend most of your addendum turning a bad thing into a good life experience that you used as a valuable lesson.
PS keep any paper work you have on it, becuase when you answer YES to those questions they want copies, that was a PITA for me since my stuff was like 10 years old.
