Katie King and Tom Connelly discuss whether a career in law is still possible when you have a criminal past

In our latest live Facebook broadcast, Legal Cheek’s Katie King and Tom Connelly examine whether law breaking law students can still successfully forge a career in the legal profession.

This morning — in case you missed it — Legal Cheek brought you the news that an aspiring lawyer who had narrowly escaped a custodial sentence for assault could start his law degree.

Suspending Sherman Wright’s 11 month jail term for three years, District Judge Desmond Perry told him to “do something with his life”. So, putting his courtroom experience to good use, Wright has punted for a legal career.

Seizing the opportunity to open up the Legal Cheek archives, Katie and Tom take a look back at some of the more colourful law students to grace the site recent months.
