Here's The Massachusetts Law License Rule Elizabeth Warren Probably Broke
Erin Fuchs | 20 minutes ago


So, what does the rule for lawyers in Massachusetts say? Well, like most laws, it's open to interpretation, but it appears Warren might have at least severely bent the rule.

The rule says lawyers without a license in Massachusetts can practice there "on a temporary basis," especially if they're working on cases with attorneys who are licensed in the state.

Still, it's not clear that Warren was practicing law on just a temporary basis since she was heavily involved in a number of cases while serving as a full-time law professor.

Warren has also reportedly listed the state of Massachusetts as her "primary practice location" in official correspondence.

Kinda fuzzy. If I've heard it once, I've heard it a thousand times - 'breaking the RULE will put you behind bars - probably.'

Hey everybody! Go fishing in Massachusetts, and when the Game Warden asks to see your fishing license, just say, “I’m only temporarily fishing and the guy I’m with has a license. Paleface Lizzy says it’s OK.”

If it’s *illegal* to practice medicine,dentistry,podiatry and barbering without a license it’s gotta be illegal to practice *law* without a license.But then,maybe not.After all,it *is* lawyers (for the most part) that make laws.

Criminal illegals have special rights in Massachusetts.
Eloquent rapists are especially sought by Deval Patrick.

I would guess she was a consultant with/to a firm who WAS problem....

And there are temporary situations. My license lets me practice in another state under certain circumstances.

In the several states where I am licensed to practice law - yeah, I'm one of those heartless money-grubbing scumbags - an attorney not licensed in the state must have an attorney who is licensed in the jurisdiction move his admission "pro haec vice."

The moving attorney has to appear at any court appearances made by the out-of-state attorney. I have appeared once "pro haec vice" in North Carolina, a state in which I am not licensed to practice law, and have moved the admission of several out-of-state attorneys "pro haec vice" in my home jurisdiction of Maryland. In Maryland, the judiciary will only allow a few appearances of this type for any one attorney.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

She should say so. She hasn't.
