CA Bar Moral Character Questions

Postby CaBarHopeful » Mon Nov 18, 2013 4:54 pm

I have a call into the CA Bar, but I thought maybe some people here who have gone through the CA Bar experience might be able to help out. Some clarifying questions I have:

1) I've had a driver's license in 4 states, including California. Do I need all the license numbers?

2) An out-of-state driving I need to get that from every state I've had a license in (except California, since that wouldn't be out-of-state)?

3) Does living at a temporary place for a summer job count as a residence?

4) I studied abroad through Butler University's program. I have a transcript from Butler, not the university abroad. I assume I include Butler (rather than the institution abroad) as a college I studied at?

This is a ton to do! Thanks for any help.

i couldn't tell you the answer to any of these either way, but i passed c&f and i got license numbers and records from every state i've driven in (none of them ca), listed everywhere i lived even for a month, and listed my school's study abroad program as a separate university. if the classes you took abroad were on your butler transcript the bar will figure it out. better to be safe and overshare than need to supplement later. also, the driving records can usually be done online with a credit card. i just printed off pdfs and mailed them in.

I did clinic last semester. Do you know if I should count that as an legal internship/externship?
