“I suppose attorneys can’t read the law of the other state….”

Now, where did I say that?

No need to be so defensive and testy. I was merely trying to clarify a point.

OK “Bro”?

you were not “clarifying” because the reason it is done is protectionism, not making sure the attorney in question knows the state law

Obviously you have some deep belief that an attorney’s requirement to be licensed by a particular state has nothing to do with knowing a particular state’s laws. It’s all some protectionism scam. Nothing to do with State’s rights, just some scam.

OK, believe what you want. I simply don’t care to discuss it with you anymore. I can see where this is heading.

Don't give up yet! Ask him if he'd feel competent representing a client in Louisiana ... go up a little for "Civil Law" ... best I can do.;-)

Google the whole phrase. It’s worth it.

Naw, I know when to stop with some on this forum, but thanks anyway for the cogent example.

btw I am not a “him”. And all that “civil law” means is that it is all written down. And any lawyer worth their salt would read the law and develop the facts and then apply the law to the facts before they decided whether they were taking the case. You do turn clients down, sometimes, if you don’t believe in their case. Give it up y’all.

The deal with the various state bars requiring licenses is similar to requiring different driver’s licenses state to state—oh no, you ain’t driving in Mass with a New Jersey license, you need a Mass license—dumb, stupid...

I guess you support central authority over state sovreignty.

Not really, but I do support a state recognizing another state’s license as valid, along the lines of full faith and credit. If a person has no law license in any state at at all, they can’’t practice in any state. If they have a license in any one of the 50 states, let them practice in any of the 50. I know there is an interstate compact like that for driver’s licenses.

Sort of like everybody recognizes a college degree or professional degree and you don’t have to get a degree in every state you want to work in.

This being Massachusetts, any such investigation will be timed to deliver its findings midway through Warren’s first term.
