Both of the people who agreed to do my moral character affidavits are asking me for guidance on that, and I have not idea what to tell them...I'm a foreign candidate and I don't know anyone who has gotten admitted into the NY bar >.<
The instructions on the form is as follows:
"In answer to this question, affiants should provide the following: (1) the length and nature of affiant’s acquaintance
with applicant; (2) affiant’s opinion as to applicant’s good moral character and general fitness to practice
law; (3) the basis for affiant’s opinion; (4) any other information or facts which affiant believes would be helpful
in evaluating applicant’s character and fitness to practice law; and (5) whether affiant recommends applicant
for admission to the New York State Bar."
Whatever guidance you lovely people could provide, that would be greatly appreciated
Just answer 1-5
