CHARACTER & FITNESS
WE CAN HELP WITH CHARACTER AND FITNESS QUESTIONS
Completing the admissions process to become a licensed attorney in Colorado, including the bar exam application and the character and fitness portion, can be stressful. COLAP does not provide legal advice but does help applicants process their character and fitness concerns, answer questions about the general application process, and direct applicants to resources they can access during this process.
If you have taken the Bar Exam, but did not pass this time, please watch this video below for more information on resources and support, and to hear from successful judges and attorneys who also needed a do-over.

- Educational information about the admissions process.
- Well-being support referrals for mental health, peer support, stress management, exam-related anxiety or substance use.
- Voluntary monitoring agreements to support and document recovery activities.
