ADHD barring admission?

Postby Donnis » Thu Jun 22, 2017 2:27 pm

I have done a lot of research and have yet to find anything about a bar applicant being denied admission to the bar for ADHD diagnosis as an adult and while in law school. I will be disclosing the doctor on my bar application. I have seen denial of bar accommodations but not an applicant being denied admission solely because of ADHD diagnosis and medication as an adult while in law school.

Wow, first time I have heard about this. I was diagnosed during my second year in law school. I was pretty sure I was not going to be granted accommodations. I was wrong. I don't see why I would be granted accommodations, yet not "satisfy" my moral application. Hope not. It's still in review. I'll provide an update once I hear something.
