The Louisiana Supreme Court denied admission to an applicant who had passed the February 2010 bar exam. The court held that "an applicant suffering from alcohol dependence will not be considered for admission until he or she has entered into a recovery contact with [the Bar's Lawyer Assistance Program] and can demonstrate at least a one-year period of sobriety pursuant to the terms and conditions of that contract."
The applicant may not reapply until the contract conditions are met. (Mike Frisch)
