Utah To Be Latest State To Allow 'Dreamers' To Practice Law

us army

Utah is set to become the latest state to allow immigrant ‘Dreamers’ to practice law in the state under a new proposed rule issued by the state Supreme Court. The rule unveiled Monday comes after a request made last year by two women who earned law degrees from Utah universities but couldn't practice law because they aren't legal residents of the United States. They are part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, an initiative implemented during former President Barack Obama's administration that allows young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children to to remain in this country.
