Obama the Lawyer — ARDC Fun

Is your lawyer really licensed to practice law in the State of Illinois? To find out, you only need to visit the ARDC website.

Do you want Abraham Lincoln to handle your divorce? Well, he can’t represent you because he is deceased. Also deceased is the man he debated in Illinois — Stephen Douglas.

What about William Jennings Bryan? He won the Scopes Trial, right? Everyone wants a winner to be their lawyer, right? Sorry, he is deceased too.

Well, how about Clarence Darrow then? He’s a decent trial lawyer, right? Deceased.

What about living lawyers?

There’s author Scott Turow — and he’s authorized to practice law in Illinois. He’s a real lawyer in a real law firm.

There’s also the infamous Rod Blagojevich. He’s not authorized to practice law, but I hear that he is willing to do things in exchange for money.

Finally, there’s a man you may have heard of — Barack Hussein Obama. He is not currently authorized to practice law. I have been told that he will not be accepting new clients for at least four years.

    Just FYI, those links to ARDC website never work when cut and pasted–try clicking on a couple of them above. I don’t know why ARDC won’t allow it.

    Thanks for the info … I didn’t realize there was a problem with the links.
