Rule 9404. Certificate of character and fitness. Unless otherwise ordered by the appellate division, no person shall be admitted to practice without a certificate from the proper committee that it has carefully investigated the character and fitness of the applicant and that, in such respects, he is entitled to admission. To enable the committee to make such investigation, the justices of the appellate division are authorized to prescribe and from time to time to amend a form of statement or questionnaire to be submitted by the applicant, including specifically his present and such past places of actual residence as may be required therein, listing the street and number, if any, and the period of time he resided at each place.
