Admission Denied

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court denied bar admission in two recent cases. An applicant who had received his legal education in Ghana was not permitted to waive into the Massachusetts Bar because his education was not deemed the equivalent of a degree from an ABA approved law school. Another applicant with a lengthy record of criminal matters and civil litigation was denied admission on character and fitness grounds. The court did not accept his explanation that a series of omissions on his application were the result of memory loss due to heart surgery rather than lack of candor. (Mike Frisch)
