Character and Fitness Question

Post by Anonymous User » Thu Apr 14, 2016 7:47 pm

Quick question for anyone who has been through the clerkship application process. Are there character and fitness requirements, in addition to those required to be admitted to the bar, for those who wish to clerk at the federal level?

Namely, would two minor in possession of alcohol charges be enough to rule someone out as a potential clerk?

Thanks for any input, and sorry if the answer to this can be found elsewhere.

Current AIII clerk who got a minor in possession when I was 18. It has never been an issue, so I doubt yours will be.
