PTSD and bar admission

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Sep 04, 2016 2:00 am

I'm currently a 3L and likely have PTSD from some tramautic events. I'm looking to get treatment this year, but I'm worried that it might have negative implications for my bar admission. Should I wait until after the bar exam to see a mental health professional?

I can't imagine a scenario where waiting to treat PTSD until after the being admitted to the bar is necessary. I just don't see any relation between PTSD and someone's ability to practice law.

If you want to make sure though, look at the state's bar application. It will tell you all the questions you'll need to answer.

Best of luck.
