After reading this thread up to now, I would say that most of the posters have already forgotten that the woman was found Not Guilty by a jury of her peers. Some keep saying she is a convicted felon. When will you people realize that we don't hold trials by mobs because they just wouldn't be fair at all.

Hey, I might not be so happy with the verdict but the jury made it and according to our laws they had final say. You people who think you should have been part of the mob that killed her because someone yelled kill her are the very reason we have to do these things the way we do.

Default Casey Anthony Wants to Become a Lawyer

Lawyers are a seemly lot.

I can see why she would be attracted.

Back on topic, Casey Anthony is a free woman and if she wants to become a contributing member of society then so be it. If she did "get away with it" she will have to answer for it one day to a much higher court.

Casey Anthony wants to become lawyer, attorney Cheney Mason says | wtsp.com

Oops, aspiration FAIL.

Lawyers - at least theoretically and initially - are held to a higher standard than the rest of us. Applicants for a law license are screened by a morals/ethics committee.

Specifically, her convictions for lying to investigators will easily earn her a denial. No-brainer here.

that's right.
Character and Fitness
When evaluating criminal convictions the question becomes whether the crime committed is one involving moral turpitude. Crimes of moral turpitude are usually defined as acts of lying, cheating or stealing. If an applicant has been convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude it is highly unlikely that they would be given a law license anywhere in the United States.

Didn't Clinton lose his license for lying to Congress?

This floozy wants to be a movie star, she most definitely can act.

Is that because of the felonies she was convicted of?

I am a lawyer and I bet your knowledge of my profession would fit in thimble.

As for CA, she has to graduate from high school before law school is an option.
