I personally have asked hundreds of high priced and well known attorneys as to how often a supposed Harvard or Yale Law School Graduate VOLUNTARILY gives up their license to practice law. The answer is always the same “It has Never happened before”.

"[H]undreds of high priced and well known attorneys" are (a) wrong or (b) lying. There are plenty of lawyers who leave the practice of law, and maintaining an active law license can be expensive and time-consuming - between paying for bar fees, CLEs, required malpractice insurance, etc, it can be thousands of dollars a year. If your job doesn't require an active law license, then maintaining one is just throwing money down the drain.

My wife and I are both attorneys (I'm active, she's not), and we both know many former colleagues who have left the profession and voluntarily given up their licenses or become inactve (my wife included). Yes, even Harvard and Yale lawyers.

We had a fellow working as a contractor for us ages ago who had both a law degree and a masters in some sort of engineering field ~ he preferred engineering.

The son of a very good friend of Mrs Gandalf got a BS in chemical engineering from Notre Dame. He moved to DC and took a job at the patent office. After about a year they made him an offer he couldn't refuse, they offered a full scholarship to Georgetown University Law Center towards a J.D. with a concentration in Patent Law. Yes he is a very bright young man!

Regards,
GtG

My favorite question of libs: If Obama is what he says he is, why has he spent all that money sequestering all of his records, from high school through law school? Not one lib can give an answer.

Keep asking that one. Maybe some of them will spit out the Kool-Aid and put on their thinking caps instead.
