December 7, 2007
More than 50 McGeorge graduates who passed the State Bar of California's July 2007 examination were sworn-in to the state and federal bars on December 3 before a large crowd of family and friends in the law school's lecture hall.
The new attorneys, a small portion of the 176 McGeorge graduates statewide who passed the exam, were on hand to raise their right hands and be welcomed into the profession. Justice Fred K. Morrison, acting presiding justice of the Court of Appeal, Third Appellate District, administered the California oath. Magistrate Judge Kimberly J. Mueller, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California, administered the oath of office for the federal bar. A reception for all followed the ceremony. Many graduates who will practice in other parts of the state participated in swearing-in events at other locales. In recent months, other McGeorge graduates have been sworn-in to the bars of Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Idaho, Texas, New York and Florida.
