I'd describe my family as teetering on the "ragged edge of middle class" and "kind of hanging on the edges by our fingernails."
Elizabeth Warren named Elizabeth Anne Herring was born and raised in a middle class family in Oklahoma City on June 22, 1949.
Warren attended the University of Houston in 1970 and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Speech Pathology and Audology.
Fun Fact: I also taught law here for two years. Hard to believe, right?
Warren enrolled in the Rutgers Law School at Rutgers University-Newark where she received her J.D. and passed her bar examination.
Did you think I forgot about my law degree? Of course not, I performed legal services at home such as writing wills and real estate closings.
Here's a look into her family life.
Let me introduce you to my family. This is my husband, Jim Warren, who is no longer with me. I have two kids named Alexander and Amelia.
Ok class, so today I'm going to be teaching...
Warren was a highly influential law professor at the Leo Gottlieb Professor of Law at Harvard Law School for more than 30 years teaching courses on commercial law, contracts, and bankruptcy. She wrote more than a hundred articles and ten books. She was recognized with the Sacks-Freud Award for excellence in teaching.
Yes, of course sir. I would be honored.
In 1995, Warren was asked to advise National Bankruptcy Review Commission. She helped draft the commission's reports and worked to oppose the legislation restricting the right to file for bankruptcy.
Warren, would you like to advise the National Bankruptcy Review Commission?
