Felon lawyers?

Recommended Posts

Should have googled first then answered. felon can become licensed to practice law, though not in all states. As of 2015, only three states and one territory outright ban convicted felons from ever becoming lawyers: Kansas, Mississippi, Texas, and the Northern Mariana Islands. This information was taken from pages 16-17 of the National Conference of Bar Examiner's Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements 2015. - See more at: https://blogs.findlaw.com/greedy_associates/2015/12/can-a-felon-become-a-lawyer.html#sthash.yShDLgUV.dpuf

As noted above, only a few jurisdictions have an outright ban on felons practicing law.  However, in every state, the chances of a felon being admitted are significantly lower than for non-felons, and the agency in charge of this will seriously scrutinize the candidate.
