U.S. Supreme Court Bar Admissions Program: Monday, March 9, 2015
Suffolk University Law School sponsors a U.S. Supreme Court Bar group admission and swearing-in ceremony for its alumni every two years. The Alumni Engagement Office will start receiving applications for the next group admission in the fall of 2014.
Applications must be submitted directly to the Alumni Office to be part of the group. Space is limited to 50 alumni; applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note due to space limitation the Court guarantees one guest into the courtroom during the ceremony. Children under six may not be admitted to the Courtroom.
To be eligible for United States Supreme Court Bar membership, alumni must meet the following criteria:
-Be a member in good standing of the highest court of your jurisdiction for the past three years
-Present a certificate of good standing from that court
-Be sponsored by two current members of the U.S. Supreme Court Bar
-Pay the $200 fee
-Complete the Application for Admission to Practice form
If you need assistance identifying sponsors, please contact us, we will be able to assist you.
Traditionally we invite the candidates for admission and their guests to a welcome reception the evening prior to the ceremony, a breakfast on the morning of the swearing-in ceremony, and a celebratory gathering following the ceremony.
