Does he have to do something to renew his license?

I think so. Maybe we should send a character reference.

Probably has to pay the current registration fee. Here in New York, we now have mandatory continuing education attached to the renewal of our licenses. In the South, I heard all you have to know is the definition of "Is".

The rules vary from state to state, and I don't know what Arkansas requires. Typically a disbarred or suspended lawyer has to petition to restore his license. Some states also require proof of good character (there's a real knee-slapper) and proof that the lawyer has kept current in his field of law.

It wouldn't surprise me if Clinton cut a deal with the bar, such that it would lift the suspension but Clinton would then voluntarily retire his license or at least go on "inactive" status. He has never really practiced law anyhow, so this would cost him nothing, and if it spares him from publicly having to jump through some hoops to have his license reinstated, so much the better from his standpoint.

Hell why get all sweaty at a trial when you can be Prince Dianna the international jetsetter with women throwing themselves at your feet and guys paying to hear your every word.
