Was Your Conduct Called into Question?
When bar exam applicants are under scrutiny for their conduct while taking the exam, they receive a notice from the State Bar’s Office of Admission. These notices are required under Chapter 6 of the admission rules when a report is received that their conduct violated the security or administration of the exam.
Within 10 days of receiving a Chapter 6 violation notice, applicants can submit a statement addressing the alleged incident. This, however, is only the beginning of the process.
Through State Bar Help, bar exam applicants can find the support they need when their conduct is called into question. Our Chapter 6 violations lawyer in Montebello can walk you through each step of the way by providing the advice and services you need to defend against allegations of bar exam misconduct.

How to Defend Against a Chapter 6 Notice
About 30 days after your Chapter 6 Notice is issued, the State Bar will let you know whether or not it intends to sanction you. You may be sanctioned for an undisputed conduct violation or a conduct violation for which a specific sanction hasn’t been established by the examination’s rules or guidelines.
If you’ve received the latter type of conduct violation, you are entitled to a hearing to explain your side of the story and how the misconduct allegations against you are erroneous. We can help you throughout this process, representing your case when you need to defend against unfair accusations.
Unfortunately, if the State Bar determined your conduct amounts to an undisputed violation, then you are not entitled to a hearing. However, you may appeal that determination directly to the Committee of Bar Examiners.
In such a case, you should contact our team as soon as possible. Otherwise, when the sanction is finalized, it could negatively reflect on your moral character determination and cause issues and delays for future admission to the bar.
