Posted on 09/24/2012 10:52:13 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
The Boston Globe has published a story by Michael Levenson about Elizabeth Warren defending her asbestos lawsuit legal work which is most notable by what it does not mention: her lack of a license to practice law in Massachusetts. As revealed by Professor William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection, Warren has no license to practice law in that state:
Warren is not licensed to practice law in Massachusetts. Warrens name does not turn up on a search of the Board of Bar Overseers attorney search website (searches just by last name or using Elizabeth Herring also do not turn up any relevant entries).

The MSM is despicable.
Tomorrow Elizabeth Warren will be a princess or maybe a pony!
Having also worked for a university for three decades, I can assure you that Harvard rules likely included notification of outside activities.
Universities are notoriously protective of two things: Its intellectual property, and the potential for legal liability.
I’d find it extremely unlikely that she would not have been required to disclose those activities and to obtain approval....
Practicing law without a license is against the law, like practicing medicine without one. She should be disbarred.
Ya! But today she is a turkey.
She’s a victim, poor thing! (progressive pov).
Several of the comments do bring it up. The first comment of all does, by me (as raccoonradio09)
Please clarify: Did she appear in court as the legal representative of a party? Or was she part of a ‘legal team’ like so many paralegals, investigators, etc.? If the former is true, wouldn’t it be also the duty of the court to verify her bona fides?
...this woman taught law at Harvard?
But I thought she took the Bar Exam as a Lactating-American?
She can’t be disbarred. She resigned her membership to the bar last week if the reports I read were correct.
But she is an Indian and a Hah-vahd law professor...I thought that excused her from having to jump through all those hoops like the rest of us plebes.
Since she is a CHEOKEE, maybe she practice laws on the Massachusetts Cherokee land and you don't need a license. /s
Squaw Saying BULL is making this election fun!!
Additional court cases in which Warren used her Cambridge address include Matter of Cajun Elec. Power Co-op., Inc., 150 F.3d 503 (5th Cir. 199i8)(Elizabeth Ann Warren, Harvard Law School, Cambridge, MA, for Southwestern Elec. Power Co.) and Matter of P.A. Bergner & Co., 140 F.3d 1111 (7th Cir. 1998)(Elizabeth Warren (argued), Harvard Law School, Cambridge, MA).
As far as I can see, that's an award for wommin attorneys practicing law in MA.
Thank you for the additional info. Going by some of the other threads on the topic that I’ve read since, I’ll believe she was breaking the rules - but she’ll weasle her way out of it with the aid of fellow lawyers and judges...
