18VAC35-10-50. Procedure for completing and filing application.

A prospective applicant should read these rules thoroughly before attempting to complete and submit an application for a bar examination.

It is the responsibility of each applicant to see that his application is filed in strict compliance with these rules. Such application shall: (i) be on the proper form with all answers fully and accurately supplied; (ii) contain the filing fee and all required attachments; and (iii) be RECEIVED in the Office of the Secretary on or before the filing deadline. All recitals in and provisions of the application shall become binding upon the applicant when filed.

If an application contains all required attachments and is otherwise complete and properly submitted, the applicant will be informed by the Office of the Secretary that he is filed for the current examination.

If an application does not contain all required attachments, or is otherwise incomplete or improperly submitted, the applicant will be informed by the Office of the Secretary that he is not filed for the current examination. If the application is not properly completed by a specified date, the applicant will be advised that his application is being carried forward to the next Virginia bar examination. The applicant must thereafter supply the missing attachments or information by the appropriate deadline to be considered filed for the subsequent examination.
