The Court (Per Curiam)

The Court (Per Curiam)

[No Specific Judge]


Issue: Did a candidate who claimed to have practiced law for five years, but did not reside in any one state for that length of time, qualify for admission to the Bar of Maryland without having to take an examination?

Admitted?: No.

Area of Concern: The Court required at least five years of continuous residence in a state so that a candidate's reputation may be put to the test in a single locality.

Citation: 182 Md. 60, 32 A.2d 702 (1943)
