The question of how far an alien may engage in a profession despite state requirements of citizenship which attach to many professions has not been widely litigated or discussed in this country. Recent action by the United States Senate, however, has created interest in problems presented by commercial treaty provisions which guarantee to alien nationals of many countries the right to engage in professions. Attention has thus been focused on law and policy questions which were formerly of little concern outside of the State Department. On July 21, 1953 the Senate gave its advice and consent to the ratification of commercial treaties with Israel, Denmark, Greece, Japan, and the Federal Republic of Germany. In each of these treaties appeared a provision guaranteeing reciprocally the rights of nationals to engage in the professions.
