Good afternoon, I'm interested in becoming a lawyer in NSW and wish to start studying soon. However, I'm a bit worried that I might not be eligible to become a lawyer due to my police history. In May 2010, I was charged with possession of an illicit substance and pled guilty to the charge. The judge had granted me a section 10 dismissal of charges due to my age & lack of understanding of the law. I have yet to be charged of any criminal offence ever since. I understand that any findings of guilt will permanently be on my police record but will be hidden from my record if my findings of guilt is spent. My question is will I be eligible to become a lawyer if my findings of guilt is spent after the 10 year period? Thank you.
