Important Words to Look for in Law School Application Disclosures

Every law school application I know of asks about some mix-and-match of criminal disclosures.

And every school asks differently, so there is no “universal” disclosure for all schools. They could make one if they wanted, but they choose not to. So for now, you’re stuck reading each question carefully and making sure you answer it accurately. It’s very possible that you end up having to check “yes” for some schools and and “no” for others depending on what they’re asking for in their disclosure questions.

You would be forgiven for thinking that the law school application forms assume you’ve gone to law school before you’ve actually gone to law school. These terms are quite technical, and you might not now whether what you did or what was done to you constitutes an “arrest,” a “charge,” or a “conviction,” for example.
