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”.
There is so much not known about this manchurian cadidate...nobama. I hope I live long enough to see him and his grifter wife exposed for the anti-American frauds they are.
My wife is no Harvard lawyer but she is a lawyer and she left the legal profession to take up teaching. There are continuing education requriements and annual fees and stuff she would have to maintain in order to retain her status as a mamber of the bar in active standing. So she changed her status to some sort of "inactive" one. She cannot practice law but all she needs to do to reactivate herself is pay a fee.
I'm not sure if this is in any way similar to what Obama did, the linked reference citation to his legal status with the Illinois bar doesn't say, other than he's not authorized to practice law. I'm not sure that means he can never practice law or that he was ever under any sort of disbarment consideration. This might be all smoke, no fire.
"[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.
