Comment: It is not illegal to practice law without a license.

(See in situ)


It is not illegal to practice law without a license.

There is no license for the occupation of law. Do you know why? Because if the occupation of law is a licensed, privileged activity then one actually does have a valid excuse to be ignorant of the law. There will never be a license for the occupation of law unless the principle, ignorance of the law is not an excuse, is going right out the window too.

What attorneys obtain is a certificate from a state supreme court authorizing them to represent persons in government courts. This certificate also allows attorneys to profit from the intellectual property of codes and statues. Yes, codes and statues are intellectual property and if you want to use them to derive a gain or profit ... that requires permission.

There has never been a law license and there never will be. There are only monopoly bar certificates to work for hire in government courts or using government codes or statutes.
