Rule IV. Texas Board Of Law Examiners — Good Moral Character And Fitness Requirement
(d) The following provisions shall govern the determination of present good moral character and fitness of a Declarant or an Applicant who has been convicted of a felony in Texas or placed on probation for a felony with or without an adjudication of guilt in Texas, or who has been convicted or placed on probation with or without an adjudication of guilt in another jurisdiction for a crime which would be a felony in Texas. A Declarant or Applicant may be found lacking in present good moral character and fitness under this rule based on the underlying facts of a felony conviction or deferred adjudication, as well as based on the conviction or probation through deferred adjudication itself.
(1) The record of conviction or order of deferred adjudication is conclusive evidence of guilt.
(2) An individual guilty of a felony under this rule is conclusively deemed not to have present good moral character and fitness and shall not be permitted to file a Declaration of Intention to Study Law or an Application for a period of five years after the completion of the sentence and/or period of probation.
(3) Upon a credible showing that a felony conviction or felony probation, either with or without an adjudication of guilt, has been reversed on review by an appellate court, or that an executive pardon has been granted, the Declarant or Applicant shall be permitted to file a Declaration of Intention to Study Law or an Application.
