To be licensed to practice law in Minnesota, an applicant to the bar must be a person of good character and fitness. The Board will make a finding of good character and fitness before an applicant is licensed.
The Board offers the following resources related to its character and fitness process:
1. “Character and Fitness for Admission to the Bar” – a brochure that outlines the good character and fitness standard
3. For additional character and fitness questions not answered by the above resources, you may call the Board office and speak anonymously to the Attorney for the Character and Fitness
4. Potential applicants may make an anonymous call to the Board’s Character and Fitness Attorney and ask about character and fitness issues. The Attorney will advise you regarding how the Board has handled similar issues in the past. A final determination will not be made until you apply.
