Typically the statue on collections runs out after 7 years. Which is the same amount of time it would take for a bankruptcy to clear from your credit record. So if you can han…dle the harassments and wage garnishings for 7 years go for it.
Answer All 112 past and present Supreme Court Justices have held law degrees or have been admitted to the bar at some point before being appointed the bench. Those who serv…ed in the early days of the Court would have been said to "read law" under the tutelage of another lawyer before being admitted to the local bar so may not have held a law degree, because there were few law schools back then, and it was not necessary to hold a degree in order to be admitted to the bar. Not all supreme court justices had been judges, though. Notable examples are John Marshall, William Rehnquist, and Earl Warren. Answer Although not required by the Constitution, all 112 members of the US Supreme Court have been lawyers, although not all attended or graduated law school. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the United States had few law schools, so a person who wanted to become a lawyer would read about the law and then apprentice under a practicing attorney. Levi Woodbury (1845-1851) was the first justice to graduate law school (Litchfield Law School, now defunct). Stanley Forman Reed (1938-1957) was the last justice to serve without a law degree. Today, candidates for the US Supreme Court are usually chosen from among those who attended the nation's top law schools, such as Harvard and Yale. For more information, see Related Questions, below.
The technical answer is no , there are no Constitutional or legislative qualifications for US Supreme Court justices. All 112 past and present Supreme Court justices have b…een lawyers, although those who served in the early days of the Court learned the law by reading and apprenticing with more experienced attorneys because there were few law schools back then. There have been some lawyers who were never judges appointed, most famously, Earl Warren. Eisenhower appointed him to the Supreme Court in 1953 to thank him for his support in CA during the Republican primaries. Warren was an ex-state Attorney General and an extremely popular governor of CA, but he had never been a judge. He went on to become one of the most active Chief Justices ever, greatly expanding legal protections, especially for minorities (e.g. Brown v. Board of Education, 1954) and criminal defendants (Miranda v. Arizona, 1966).
Yes. Although this is not a Constitutional or statutory requirement, Supreme Court justices need a solid understanding of the law to operate effectively. Not all justices atte…nded law school, however. In the 18th- and 19th-centuries, many lawyers studied and apprenticed under a more experienced attorney and were admitted to the bar without benefit of a degree. Today, most Supreme Court candidates have Ivy League law degrees.
