    This is a great start. May I suggest, in addition to these ideas, the Bar make the application process less invasive, or condemning of pre existing conditions, and or treatment of conditions particularly treatment which was initiated by prior to legal or codified age, or age of maturity, where the applicant did not have the ability to emancipate himself or herself. Since applicants must disclose any conditions or treatments, the facts or even the stigma may prevent the applicant from being accepted even if other qualifications are met. It is important that the Bar and its members change how they view and address these issues. There must be an acceptance of people/lawyers/attorneys who have or will have what I call conditions, specifically those considered related to mental health. The persons in question must meet all academic and moral standards already established. It is my hope that we will reduce even eliminate future tragedies, (publicized and unpublicized) like those that have occurred.
