Warren has done a considerable amount of legal work in recent years, and has been well paid for it.

She was paid a fee by Travelers Insurance Company, to cite just one example, that was in the low six figures.

So we are not talking about a casual, borderline situation. Warren indisputably is practicing law, and by her own repeated assertion, she is doing so in Massachusetts.

The Massachusetts Rules of Professional Responsibility treat this subject as the rules do in most states....


Rule 5.5 addresses the unauthorized practice of law. Rule 5.5 (b) sets out the basic prohibition on practicing law in Massachusetts without a Massachusetts license:
(b) A lawyer who is not admitted to practice in this jurisdiction shall not:
(1) except as authorized by these Rules or other law, establish an office or other systematic and continuous presence in this jurisdiction for the practice of law; or
(2) hold out to the public or otherwise represent that the lawyer is admitted to practice law in this jurisdiction.
Emphasis added. On the undisputed facts, Warren has violated this prohibition. She admittedly is not licensed in Massachusetts, and yet she has established a law office in Massachusetts–one which she has referenced on any number of appellate briefs, and in which she has earned a large amount of money.

Well, the MA Bar has already made a statement about this issue. Don't you guys ever read previous posts in a thread, or do you just jump in and start running with information which has been previously discussed at length.....for the "fun" of it?

The MA Bar sees no problem with Elizabeth Warren, so my guess is you're not going to see any time spent on this "political" gossip unless the MA Bar decides it's a problem, and right now they've made a statement saying it isn't a problem.

I guess it must have been that part when you used asked,
"I wonder what it was in her curriculum vitae that motivated Harvard to hire a graduate of a tier 2 school,"
and I apparently falsely assumed that you knew the definition of curriculum vitae.

I apologize.

Oh, jt. It helps to read previous posts in a thread before commenting. Apparently the MA Bar disagrees with you and has already made a statement concerning this issue. You guys are falling down on the job.

Warren law license matter called non-issue
