Police Caution / effect on possible employment watch

    • Thread Starter

    A few years back I picked up a caution for something very minor. Nothing went to court and thus I have never been convicted of any criminal offence.

    I am now intending to go to uni in September to do a Law degree with a view to becoming a Solicitor / Barrister.

    I was cautioned in 2000 thus meaning by the time that I start practicing (2009/2010) the caution will be approx. 10 years old (most things like this are considered "spent" after five years).

    I am wondering if anyone thinks that this may in any way affect my employment prospects withing the legal sector? Surly there are solicitors / barristers out there with cautions and even convictions to their name?

    I would hate to do six years training then for someone to deny me because of something that happened when I was 18.
