RECERTIFICATION FORM
We require incoming first-year students to update and correct answers to the Character and Fitness questions of
the 2015-2016 First-Year Application for Admission, which concern students’ academic, professional and
criminal histories. The reasons are twofold: (1) to allow the School of Law to determine whether you remain
admissible and (2) to allow you to forestall any inconsistency between your law school application and any state
bar application you may eventually file. The failure to make a required disclosure on a law school application
may result in an investigation by a state bar and, if the omission is significant, an applicant may be denied
admission to the bar. Therefore, please:
 Read each of the seven questions below carefully. The term “updates” refers to incidents that have occurred
since the date you submitted your law school application. The term “corrections” refers to incidents that should
have been, but were not, disclosed or were not fully disclosed on your law school application.
 Even if you have no updates, you must answer “Yes” or “No” to each question.
 If you check “Yes” and you originally answered “No” in your application, you must also either check
“update” or “correction.”
 For every update/correction, you must submit a separate written statement describing the event, the date it
occurred (month and year), where it happened (city, state, country), and other pertinent information. This
statement should also describe any disciplinary actions that were or will be taken.
 If you are correcting your law school application, please also provide an explanation for the different
response(s) in your law school application.
 Please sign, date, and print your name at the end of this form.
