I was hoping that someone might be able to tell me what law firms’ background checks for SAs entail. Does anyone know if something like a suicide attempt several years ago for which the police were called, and an ensuing involuntary psychiatric hold, will pose a problem if the only diagnosis was depression, and this has been dealt with? I can’t imagine I’m the first law school student who’s had this happen, but I spoke to someone at my school’s OCS, and he told me he had no idea whether it will be a problem. I am getting increasingly apprehensive about this, and I’d appreciate it if anyone who's been in a similar position can tell me if this is going to be an issue. (I realize I'll have to disclose this to the bar, and I have no problem doing that; I'm just concerned that if this information comes to light, this may cause my firm to withdraw its SA offer.)
