What I want to know is why he got into law school and was then denied a license to practice for several years because of his criminal history. Do law schools really admit someone who they know will almost certainly be denied a license?
The problem is law schools don't know for certian if you will or will not be lic. to pratice. That's up to the baord of law examiners and is on a case by case basis that looks to how long ago it was, what it was, if you have been good since, ect. So there is not way a law school could really know before hand what the baord of exminers will do in your case. (As well you might f-up in law school and do something that keeps you out). As well usually when the bar deny's you its not forever, alot of times its OK keep being a good boy and come back in a year and we will look at your file again. There is an ASU grad who did like 15 years for murder during a drug deal, did his time, went to ASU law, got his degree, but last I heard they had not let him pratice yet, but had no told him no forever either.
