In the UK you can pretty much do anything and still practise as long as it's not a dishonesty related offence. I think Louise Woodward, that nanny that shook a baby to death a few years back, went into law after she was released.

Actually, just looked her up and apparently she started her training but dropped out before she was admitted.
