Also, what court ruling or statute exempts law schools from ORC 2953.33 and 2953.32, especially section B1 of ORC 2953.32?
Can the Ohio Supreme Court and BAR examiners issue guidelines that are contrary to the ORC?
Even though it is quite clear that the BAR examiners can question someone in regards to ORC 2953.32, I do not think that the BAR examiners can consider a sealed record ordered sealed or expunged under ORC 2953.32 because ORC 2953.33 explicitly restores "all privileges" not already restored to the individual whose record was ordered sealed under ORC 2953.32
I am looking for specific exemptions in the law for law schools and the BAR (DO NOT CONFUSE THE TWO AS BEING THE SAME).
From what I understand, the power to legislate is not a power the OH Supreme Court has?I am curios as to whether a law school can actually inquire about this because the question seems to be in direct violation of ORC 2953.33. Keep in mind that studying law is not the same as practicing law. Also, a sealed or expunged record does not bear a direct and substantial impact on studying law (being a student). In fact, if it did, I would go so far as to assert that a record might as well not be expunged or sealed because then any profession or institution can claim that the record in question bears the same. I require thorough answers and specific case/legal examples because I intend to petition the ACLU for assistance; however, I want to have a good understanding of the facts before I proceed. This seems to be a matter of civil liberties (which are supposed to be restored) and discrimination against the poor and disadvantaged by the legal profession (ensuring that only the most privileged can practice law)
