Are state occu­pa­tion­al licens­ing laws that pro­hib­it cer­tain peo­ple con­vict­ed of crimes from receiv­ing Emer­gency Med­ical Tech­ni­cian (EMT) licens­es uncon­sti­tu­tion­al under the Equal Pro­tec­tion Clause of the Four­teenth Amend­ment? In this Con­tri­bu­tion, Maya Dana­her (’18) dis­cuss­es the con­sti­tu­tion­al issues aris­ing from state licens­ing laws that with­hold EMT licen­sure from peo­ple con­vict­ed of crimes.
