Now that you have taken the bar exam it is time to fill out the application papers.  But when is the best time to file them? How do you make sure you expedite the process? How do you get employment affidavits and what if you can’t find a past employer? How do you find attorney character affiants?  Does it really matter if you have outstanding parking tickets? The panel will address all these issues and more.
