Tarra Simmons Featured in Times Article on Lawyer Licensing

Fellow Tarra Simmons (’17) was featured in a Sunday New York Times article about state licensing boards’ seemingly increased willingness to allow applicants with criminal histories to practice law (“Are Felons Fit to Be Lawyers? Increasingly, the Answer Is Yes,” Jan. 19). The article noted that Tarra successfully appealed a vote by Washington’s licensing panel to block her from taking the bar licensing exam.
