What Wall Street Law Firm Did Elizabeth Warren Work For and Why Is She Hiding the Fact?

In her new book, A Fighting Chance, Elizabeth Warren writes that during the summer of her second year at Rutgers Law School, she worked as an intern at a Wall Street law firm, but she fails to name the firm.

A failure that stands in contrast to the laborious detail she provides throughout her book about everything else, e.g.:
By graduation day...I was wearing an ugly maternity dress, panty hose that were to tight, and stiff shoes that felt too small.
She tells us about wearing panty hose that is to tight, but not the name of the law firm she interned at? What is she hiding?


  1. I bet she worked for Dewey, Cheatem, and Howe.

  2. She worked for the white shoe law firm, Cadawalder, Wickersham and Taft.

    It's obvious why she left it out, it muddies the image she is trying to build as a purist untouched by the elitist establishment. It is very difficult to get an internship at Cadawalder.
