Video: Overview of Character and Fitness Requirements by Dean DeVigne
This video reflects the session Dean DeVigne held in the evening, where she provided an overview of character and fitness for the state bar exam and provide names of those from whom you can seek assistance with questions on character and fitness. Handouts from that evening program are at the end of this message. In particular, she calls your attention to the 2016 Character and Fitness Overview and Quick Reference Sheet (3rd document, first attachment), and the sample application from NCBE (first link below my email signature). The video is approximately 45 minutes.
