What is the character and fitness evaluation: law?

I read a bit about the character and fitness evaluation, however, it has nothing to do with fitness, right? I saw that it looks back on your medical record, felony record, what else?

Thanks

Assuming you are talking about being admitted to the bar, then yes, it has nothing to do with being physically fit.

"Fitness" refers to being fit to practice law and being trusted with client’s secrets and money. It does not look at you medical record unless you have a history of metal illness or psychiatric commitments. It looks at your entire criminal record (not just felonies), including misdemeanors, tickets, and arrests even when charges were not filed, and it also involves a background check with your past employers to ensure that you have never been fired for dishonest behavior or anything like that.
