| William Jacobson, of Legal Insurrection, poses a very serious question today. Did Elizabeth Warren illegally practice law in Massachsuetts without a license? Here's the story:
Warren represented not just Travelers, but numerous other companies starting in the late 1990s working out of and using her Harvard Law School office in Cambridge, which she listed as her office of record on briefs filed with various courts. Warren, however, never has been licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.
As detailed below, there are at least two provisions of Massachusetts law Warren may have violated. First, on a regular and continuing basis she used her Cambridge office for the practice of law without being licensed in Massachusetts. Second, in addition to operating an office for the practice of law without being licensed in Massachusetts, Warren actually practiced law in Massachusetts without being licensed
William Jacobson, a Cornell Univeristy Law professor lays out a strong case that Elizabeth Warren did indeed practice law illegally in Massachsuetts.
