Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

No, a bankruptcy does not cause someone to be rejected from law school or even from bar admission. Someone suing him would not prevent him from being admitted either. When he applies for the bar exam, he would have to disclose them in his disclosures, but they do not prevent him from practicing law.
