Life Lesson: Don’t Say You’re an Attorney Unless You Are

In a hilarious story, the Naperville Sun reports that a University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) law student pretended to be an attorney representing his friend who had just been arrested for drunk driving. Just to clarify, UIC does not have a law school; however, the story goes on to state that the suspect was the co-vice president of UIC’s Pre-Law Society, a student run group for aspiring law students. See the story for the details.

It is a misdemeanor to pretend to be a licensed attorney. Apparently, this student went as far as saying he had his own family law practice and the driver was one of his clients. I don’t know of many attorneys that would let a drunk client drive them around Aurora at 1 a.m. on a Sunday morning. I wonder how the character and fitness committee will treat this.

    Too funny. That might not look so good on his law school applications.
