    Saw the Mass. Debate (part of it). Warren seems like she must be heavily into Valium or Xanax.

    I'm no Warren fan, I believe her to be a rank liar. But doesn't arguing in front of the SCOTUS as a lawyer require a different bar? Other than your normal state bar.

    You just have to be sworn in to federal practice. For instance, you pass the bar and someone swears you in to practice in the state and then someone else swera you in to practice in the federal courts in that state and above. The bankruptcy court requires that you be qualified there separately which just is you saying you have read the bankruptcy laws and somebody already sworn in stands beside you like a sponsor. It is pretty procedural.

    Thanks, I thought there was a separate constitutional law bar. Well that leaves her on the hook then. Practicing without a license. Of course nothing will happen to her. She's protected by party.

    At the very least, all those people she represented while not licensed can now sue for all their fees back.

    Yes, there's the federal bar.

    Just to avoid confusion "the bar" sometimes is used to describe all the people who practice before a particular Court as opposed to being members of a particular bar organization. So if you take your state's bar exam and pass it and remain in good standing, you are a member of the bar for the state and subject to its ethics rules but you may not be considered a member of the bar for a particular part of the state even if you are legally authorized to practice there. So people from other towns who are not members of your local bar association could still practice in your local court. It is not unusual for large law firms to have people who are admitted to practice in specific out of state federal courts because they were admitted so they could do a single case for a client there.

    They do give you a feather I am told each time you argue a case before the SCOTUS, so there's a motivator for you to go to law school if ever there was one.

    Elizabeth Warren's Native American Proof? High Cheekbones... - YouTube

    she's also the self styled creator of occupy

    as well as the audacious author of you didn't build that

    Elizabeth Warren's "You Didn't Build That Speech" as made famous by Obama - YouTube

    a very colorful woman

    of course, any state that would return chappaquiddick ted to the senate for 40 years...
    From your own link:

    She also may have only practiced in federal court in Massachusetts, which could absolve her of wrongdoing if it cannot be proven any of the legal preparation work was done in the state.
    So it boils down to this - Did Warren do any of her legal preparation in Massachussets? I think she did, but if it cannot be proven, then she is innocent under the law, and this could very well bite Brown in the ass. What Brown needs is the proof, and I am sure that he is looking hard for it right now.

    The objective may have already been met. Just by creating doubt, Warren's credibility has taken another hit. Where it goes from here could just be icing on the cake.
