    In order to practice law in any state, you have to be admitted to the state's bar. in addition to a test, you have to pass a character and fitness review. this will take into consideration things like past convictions, bad debts, etc. I would be up to the Arkansas Bar to decide if a felony would prevent you from being admitted -- some cases may be overlooked, such as felony drunk driving, but others will likely not be overlooked, such as murder. or they could have general policy of not admitting any convicted felon.

    No. You can para-legal, but you can't pass the bar with a felony.
