Legal Careers and DWI

A person looking to enter into a legal profession may face certain problems if they have a DWI conviction on their record. These convictions can significantly lessen a person’s educational opportunities as well as their chance of getting the license they need to work in a legal career. Thus, rather than wait until the conviction is already on your record, it is important to immediately defend yourself against any DWI charges that you face.

No matter your hopes and plans for the future, a DWI conviction can severely impact your opportunities. For a free consultation regarding your defense options when going up against DWI charges, contact experienced Raleigh DWI lawyer Jim Black at 919-600-4609 today.

The Impact of a DWI

One of the most important steps for anyone looking to get a job in the legal profession is to successfully go through law school. The admissions process for this level of education can prove difficult for many, but with a DWI conviction, this can become even more troublesome. The following issues may make it especially difficult to get into a legal career if a person has a DWI conviction on their record:

  • Difficulty being admitted into law school
  • Trouble securing financial aid for that schooling
  • Rejection from the state bar
  • Difficulty being hired by a law firm

The state bar will generally examine a candidate’s personal history before deciding whether they should be allowed to become a legal professional. A criminal record and drunk driving history can make acceptance of a candidate less likely.
