NCBE C&F--what does it entail?

Postby msesquire » Sun Jan 27, 2019 4:46 pm

I have practiced for over a decade in my jurisdiction but plan on waiving into another jurisdiction. I left my last employer after over 5 years, technically on a good note. I resigned because I was going to pursue another graduate degree full time . However, during my last year, I also was not chosen for a promotion over a male colleague with less experience, and I raised a fuss about it, accusing my supervisor of some gender bias (in writing). We had a big sit down, and even though things were ok after that, our relationship was never quite the same. He is generally fun loving and people in our law department loved him, but like I said, things were not good with us after that. All of my reviews there every year have been good and positive.

I'm worried about the NCBE Character and Fitness investigation and what he might say since I will be listing him as my supervisor. We have not been in touch at all since my last day at the office. Do you know how in depth they go? Has anything like this happened to any of you--leaving an employer with some bad blood and still having to report working there?

As for how deep NCBE goes into your answers - really deep (technically), but it depends on (a) the answer to the question, and (b) your analyst. when did you complete your application?

I'm not sure what you said in your answers, but Question 45 is there in case you feel you need to explain anything further. If you want to be safe, you can amend your application.

In summary, it sounds like (at most) an amendment would take care of it - even though that's almost overboard. Unless this supervisor accuses you of some serious stuff (i.e. basically criminal conduct), it's almost not worth worrying about.
