May Undergraduate Employees Contact...

Postby resnez » Sat Apr 02, 2011 2:49 am

May an undergraduate disciplinarian proactively contact the law school a student was admitted to and reveal negative and damaging information about that student, or are there rules against this?

How serious does the law school consider personal calls or letters from employees of an undergraduate disciplinarian department?

Pretty sure law schools make you disclose this kind of stuff on their apps.

Unless this is a post-app situation?

Either way, it could come up on your C&F review for the bar... not sure about that....

Its a bad idea. You don't know what a given school required disclosure of. If it should have been disclosed and wasn't it may get caught when the bar investigates the applicants history in which case the bar will contact YOU to ask about discipline.

If you disclose this without being asked and no disclosure was necessary you run the risk of a lawsuit. Besides, your dean of students is required to certify the discipline record for schools that ask this sort of thing.

Now obviously if the school wants you to fill out a form, go for it.

I think he's the student, not the judicial affairs person.

He wants to know if it is legal for someone at his UG judicial affairs office to call a law school and tell the school that they shouldn't accept him.

I would be surprised if (1) they were allowed to do this by their office and (2) they hated you enough to take the time to do it. If they did hate you enough to try and sabatoge your legal career, I bet they could get away with it.

What did you do to make them so mad?
