Never held a job, never picked up a check, never attended classes...
Thanks Reaganite Republican.
"[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.
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!
Keep asking that one. Maybe some of them will spit out the Kool-Aid and put on their thinking caps instead.
Good point. Ping for later
