Justice and Law Enforcement:
Comments on the Administration of Bar Admission Fees
B-56200: Published: Jun 8, 1951. Publicly Released: Jun 8, 1951.
GAO commented on whether Mr. William P. Rowland, a former clerk for the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, could receive and disburse the admission fees collected from lawyers seeking admission to the bar rather than depositing the funds in the U.S. Treasury and should thus be held accountable for the funds not accounted for. This matter was brought to the attention of Congress for its consideration and until Congress should take further action, GAO will not raise any objection.
