The Connecticut Law Tribune wrote an editorial expressing their belief that Reginald Dwayne Betts should be granted admission to the Connecticut Bar:

The Connecticut Bar Examining Committee temporarily denied admission to Reginald Dwayne Betts based on a prior felony conviction, pursuant to bar committee regulations that require a review in such situations. We believe that once the committee reviews the unparalleled array of Betts' post-conviction achievements, it will easily conclude that there is overwhelming evidence of good moral character and/or fitness to practice law.

In the News:

Reginald Dwayne Betts, Emerson Fellow, will work on a book that examines the criminal justice system through his experience as a formerly incarcerated person working as a public defender.
