A total of 616 successful bar admission applicants who satisfied all of the Ohio Supreme Court’s other requirements for admission participated in the November 2016 Bar Admissions Ceremonies Nov. 7 at The Ohio Theatre in Columbus.
The Supreme Court’s two retiring members—
Justice Paul E. Pfeifer and Justice Judith Ann Lanzinger—
offered remarks and led the new attorneys in the professional oath during the Court’s special public sessions. Alan C. Michaels, dean at the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, and Ronald S. Kopp, Ohio State Bar Association president, also spoke.
The oath was administered in a morning session to eligible applicants from the law schools of Capital University, Northern Kentucky University, Ohio State University, University of Cincinnati, and University of Dayton. The afternoon ceremony featured eligible applicants from the law schools of Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University, Ohio Northern University, University of Akron, University of Toledo, and 59 out-of-state law schools.
Following the ceremonies, the attorneys and their families visited the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center, the Supreme Court courtroom, and the Law Library.
