AUSA drug use question

Post by angryhedgehog » Wed May 08, 2019 10:57 pm

I tried pot after the bar exam on my bar trip and before I was admitted to the state bar. When people say that post bar drug use is an auto dealbreaker, are they referring to post bar exam, or only after being admitted to a state bar?

I have it on good authority that some folks do, in fact, say that. But it's tough for me to see how that would come out.

It might be an office by office thing. There certainly is an element of hypocrisy to using weed and signing up to be an AUSA.

Yeah, I got told that about post-bar use. I should clarify that I got hired through the honors program so was relatively close to bar passage still. After 7 years anything you’ve done doesn’t have to be reported, so once you get 7 years past the use it wouldn’t matter whether it was before or after admission.

So if I smoked once in college ~10 years ago I don't need to disclose that?
