Harry Connick Sr. should be allowed to practice law. The attorney has a high rate of overturned convictions which has led some to believe that he should not be allowed to practice law. The perception is that Connick is helping criminals get away with their crimes. The reality is that Connick is simply doing his job well. He has a right to serve his clients to the best of his ability.
While several overturned convictions seems alarming, in the judicial system, it doesn't mean he is unqualified to practice the law. Furthermore, an investigation as to the reasons for the reversals, of his opinions, should be examined and judged by an impartial panel of his peers before he is permanently dismissed.
No, Harry Connick Sr. should not be allowed to continue to practice law as long as there is excessive controversy surrounding his convictions. It's a big red flag. A full investigation should be done. Once the results are in, then a decision can be made as to whether or not to allow him to return to practicing law.
No, I do not think that Harry Connick Sr. should be allowed to continue practicing law. He sent many people to prison, and some to death row, who were innocent. He approached the law with a win-at-all-costs approach rather than with the aim towards justice that prosecutors should bring to the table.
