Law Prof Liz Warren Has No Law License

Speaking during a Boston radio interview on Monday, Harvard Law professor and Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren admitted that she has no license to practice law.

According to reports from listeners, she claimed that she does not maintain a law practice. She also “said that she gave up her New Jersey  license because she could not keep up with the Continuing Education requirements,” according to one listener who commented on Breitbart’s Monday story, “Does Elizabeth Warren Have a Law License Problem?”.

Ms. Warren’s statement comes as a surprise to the many clients she’s provided legal services to over the past decade, including the law firm of Simpson, Thacher, and Bartlett, which listed her as “of counsel” in the 2009 brief they submitted to the United States Supreme Court on behalf of their client, Travelers Insurance.

    Warren isn’t really interested in obeying the law or ethics. Witness her use of a phony “Cherokee” ancestor to further her career. Skirting around the payment of bar dues by assuming inactive status, while still practicing law, is just another example of an attitude that the law is for working class people, not for a Harvard professor.

    If this is startling, you are assuming that a law prof knows ANYTHING about practicing law. The majority do not. Think of a medical school where the average professor got a degree, spent two years watching other people handle patients (“clerking”) and then proclaimed themselves fit to teach surgeons. Listing her name on a brief is a different matter — that might just be illegal unauthorized practice of law.

  • A person practicing medicine without a license would be prosecuted. Is this not the case with law? I didn’t think so….

  • Her grandmother said that she had the high cheekbones of a lawyer.

  • Many states may waive the MCLE requirement if the lawyer is a law professor at an ABA accredited school. I’m admited in California and I know it’s true for that state.
