Mental Health Inquiry Is Halved for Conn. Bar Applicants
The Connecticut Law Tribune

Beginning in February, Connecticut Bar exam applicants will be asked to reveal mental health issues that occurred within the previous five years rather than the previous 10, as the inquiry now requires. "It was a way for the committee to tweak the application to make it as least invasive as possible," says Anne Dranginis, chairwoman of a subcommittee that analyzes the application questions. But opponents of the questioning say the screening process should focus more on current conduct than personal history.
