C&F Question

Postby pauleycat » Wed Jul 13, 2016 10:46 pm

This week I received a city ordinance citation (think parking ticket, alcohol on the beach, noise complaint, etc.). It's the first citation I've ever received, and I'm not really sure what I need to do regarding my law school. It will disappear once I pay the fine, so should I still inform my law school? I'll be attending a T20 in the fall. I don't want to alert them if it's a whole lot of nothing, but also don't want it to be a problem down the road.
Thanks!

We need the specific ticket to offer advice. You probably don't have to update if it was a parking ticket, but alcohol on the beach probably requires an update

disclose everything. short of a felony, it's not going to affect your enrollment at all. don't let this ruin your 0L summer. not a big deal at all. don't beat yourself up about it.
