Elizabeth Warren on defensive again over heritage claim
By Hillary Chabot
Monday, September 24, 2012 - Updated 2 hours ago
Warren, during the Jim & Margery show on 96.9 WTKK this morning, addressed the issue when a caller asked her if she felt bad for checking the box in the law school directory and potentially taking an opportunity from a real Native American.
I know what I know from my family. I didnt check a box to go to college. I didnt check a box to go to law school. The only box I checked was in a directory to help people find me. I didnt take anyone elses job, she said. I think its pretty clear, the job I got is the job I got because of my teaching qualifications.
I think the discussion has been ended I think the question has been asked and answered, she said of whether she benefited from her Native American listing. Asked why she stopped listing herself after she was hired at Harvard Law School, she said, Nothing happened from the directory, and I just thought this doesnt make any sense.

Yet Warren, who was not and never was licensed to practice law in Massachusetts, has held her Cambridge office out to be her law office for the purpose of providing legal representation, Jacobson blogs. He counts two violations: operating a law office and practicing law without a license to do so in Massachusetts.
Yes, of course there will be bloggers who are jealous of Jacobson’s intrepid investigation who will attempt to put it down.
The key points are these:
No one knows when Warren’s NJ and Texas law licenses lapsed. She said on the radio this morning that her NJ license lapsed a long time ago.
Also, why did she “resign” from her NJ law license just 12 days ago? (This is different from letting a license lapse.)
The Legal Insurrection blog believes that she did this as a way to make it harder for reporters to find out when her New Jersey law license lapsed.
It appears that she may have been practicing law with no active license.
She’s squaw-ndering her support, as well as the taxpayers $$. Won’t someone put a fork in her?
Dances without License!
The article at that link conveniently forget to discuss the fact that Crockawatha accepted over $200,000 from Travelers Insurance for legal advice.
Her office at that time was in Cambridge. How is that not practicing law?
She’s an undocumented law professor. It’s against Massachusetts law to teach law without a license. Naturally. How can you teach it if you haven’t studied it?
It’s not illegal to be an illegal lawyer in Massachusetts.
This woman is a lifelong phoney.
She got on to the Harvard faculty by masquerading as a Native American, pretended to be a lawyer, though she didn’t have a law license, pretends to be for the middle class from within her elitist, privileged cocoon, and is pretending to be a politician, though her only relevant attribute for that particular position is her tendency to lie.
Who in their right mind would vote for such a conniving fraud?
By voluntarily surrendering her license, she blocks people from accessing any information contained in the New Jersey computers. All that people will get is a statement that she is not an active attorney.
The reason she gave for surrendering her law license in New Jersey and the Jim and Margery Show this morning was she did not have the time to comply with New Jersey’s continuing education requirements. Think of that for a moment. A law school professor who does not have the time to accomplish New Jersey’s continuing education requirements!!
So how onerous are those requirements? To remain active attorneys must complete 24 hours of continuing education every two years at least 4 hours of which must be in ethics and/or professionalism. That’s 24 classroom/seminar hours of 50 minutes each. An attorney can take an 8 hour ethics class on Saturday, September 29; a legal issues class on Saturday, October 6 and another legal issues class on Saturday, October 13 and complete the continuing education requirements through October 13, 2014.
An attorney can also write papers for law reviews or books or teach continuing education classes to fulfill the requirements. My guess is Professor War Hen tried to claim her teaching at Harvard qualified and the certification board said, “Sorry, Granny, but we can’t accept your claim that you are self-certified.” My intuition tells me that the New Jersey board has been after her for five or so years and threatend to revoke her license. Otherwise it makes no sense for her to surrender her law license since to get it back would require her to take the bar exam again.
faux law, faux squaw. guffaw.

I have to assume that Warren faced review of her outside legal activity from former-Dean Elena Kagan, among others. I wonder how Justice Kagan can explain the apparent fact that she allowed Professor Warren to practice law in Massachusetts without a license?
Harvard’s motto is “Truth”. I think that Paleface Lizzy is the epitome of a Harvard instructor.
I don’t know about law, but if you practice medicine in Texas without a license, you are prosecuted and go to prison. Res ipsilociture.
I'll bet there is a third and fourth, in that she probably claimed a business deduction for rent and such on the office for both state and federal returns. IRS and almost certainly Massachusetts have a very pointed rule that dates back to the gangster era. You cannot claim a legitimate tax deduction for an illegal activity.
Thus, in states without common-law marriage, it is illegal and tax fraud to file MFJ if there is not a legal marriage. Gee, Ms Law Professor, did you realize that you might be the next Timmy Geithner?
In Mass that would have to be a citizen’s arrest.
