Is Ms. Mulroney a lawyer? (With shocking update! And important question!)
She has said in multiple interviews that she is.
Fine. But then there’s this:
She practiced 13 months, apparently, then stopped.
I know that if you don’t pay your fees in Ontario, where I am called, you can get suspended. Other provinces are mostly the same.
But can you still call yourself a “lawyer” if you aren’t paying the relevant regulatory body the fees when every other lawyer does?
Comments are welcome.
P.S. “Lawyer” or no, being called to the New York State bar is really, really hard, by the by.
SHOCKER UPDATE: She’s been re-instated! Her people saw it coming! New spin: SHE’S BEEN SECRETLY RUNNING FOR THE LEADERSHIP FOR TWO YEARS!
OH AND THIS QUERY: Why would she quietly re-instate as a New York State lawyer in THE SAME WEEK she became the PC candidate in Ontario?
