How not to practice law: start before you are admitted to the bar

Here is a good story for law students out there:  do not start offering legal advice and acting like a lawyer until you are one officially.  The Legal Profession blog is reporting on a case in which an attorney] was suspended for one for offering legal advice to a prospective client before she was admitted even though she  truthful when she told the possible client that she had a law degree and had passed the bar exam, but was awaiting a background check.  Whatever she said, she held herself out as an attorney when she wasn’t entitled to practice and that is all that matters.  Easy solution; don't do that!
