RULE 7 INVESTIGATIONS; DUTY OF APPLICANT (a) Investigations. The Board of Governors may refer any application for permission to take the bar examination, to be admitted to the practice of law or to be admitted to the limited practice of law under pertinent provisions of rules 8 and 9, or to enroll in the law clerk program to state bar counsel or to the Character and Fitness Board for investigation pursuant to these rules. (b) Duty of Applicant. It shall be the duty of every applicant to cooperate with any investigation required by the Board of Governors, by promptly furnishing written or oral explanations, documents, releases, authorizations, or anything else reasonably required by the investigator. Failure to appear as directed or to furnish additional proof or answers as required or to cooperate fully shall be sufficient reason for the Board of Governors to reject or to recommend the rejection of an application. (c) Subpoenas. The chairperson of the Character and Fitness Board or Bar Counsel may issue subpoenas to compel attendance of an applicant or witness, or the production of books, documents, or other evidence, at a deposition or hearing. Subpoenas shall be served in the same manner as in civil cases in the superior court. [Amended effective January 1, 1974; July 1, 1975; July 1, 1977; September 1, 1984; September 1, 2006.]
