Applicants to the State Bar must apply to and be approved by the Character and Fitness Committee of the Supreme Court of Arizona. If the Committee sees deficiencies in the application, the applicant may be subject to an informal hearing, a formal hearing, or possibly both. The applicant may, of course, be represented by counsel at the hearing. Whether representation is recommended will depend on the facts— in many cases an applicant will do fine without representation
