Linked – When Bar Examiners Become Mental Health Experts

If we want to encourage people to get help for mental health issues, we have to not also turn around and use that against them. Seems to me this process may be doing exactly that to potential lawyers, a group with a higher rate of mental health issues to start with.

“The most stressful question during law school that a student in addiction recovery or who has sought treatment for other mental health issues may not be about the rule against perpetuities on that property exam. It may be the addiction/mental health question on the application that must be filled out to sit for the bar exam.”

Check out the examples Brian Cuban gives. What do you think can be done to change this?
