This Legal Profession exam, given by Professor Malcolm Ray Doubles on January 17, 1944, begins with the question:

A statute provided that any person whose application was endorsed by two members of the bar and who passed the state bar examination should be entitled to practice law in the State. Lawler complied with these requirements but the Circuit Court in which he first sought to be admitted refused his admission upon a finding that Lawler kept intimate company with prostitutes and professional gamblers. Lawler appealed from this decision on the grounds that he had complied with the statute and was therefor entitled to admission. What judgment ?
