IN THE MATTER OF MALGORZATA CHALUPOWSKI.
December 1, 2015.
Attorney at Law, Admission to practice, Bar application. Supreme Judicial Court, Membership in the bar. Practice, Civil, Membership in the bar.
On May 16, 2008, Malgorzata Chalupowski applied for admission to the Massachusetts bar. She took and passed the written bar examination in July, 2008. After reviewing the disclosures included in her application, the Board of Bar Examiners (board) requested a meeting to address certain areas of concern. Chalupowski attended an informal meeting with the board in November, 2008, after which the board notified her that it was going to conduct a hearing to determine whether she “is of good moral character and sufficient acquirements and qualifications” for admission to the bar. G. L. c. 221, § 37. See S.J.C. Rule 3:01, § 5.1, as appearing in 411 Mass. 1321 (1992). The board then appointed a special counsel to conduct an investigation prior to the hearing, which included, among other things, meeting with Chalupowski, interviewing various individuals regarding Chalupowski’s character and fitness to practice law, and reviewing numerous documents and other materials.
