Eighty-three recent law school graduates who passed the State Bar of California's July 2013 examination attended McGeorge's 13th annual Swearing-In Ceremony on Dec. 3, 2013, in the Lecture Hall.
Ronald B. Robie, '67, associate justice of the California Court of Appeal, Third Appellate District, officiated as the oath of membership was administered for the State Bar by clerk/administrator Deena C. Fawcett. Judge Troy L. Nunley of the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California, administered the oath for the federal bar.
Dean Francis J. Mootz III welcomed the new bar-passers into the profession. The new attorneys were part of a larger group (158) of McGeorge graduates who passed the July 2013 state bar examination, the results of which were released in late November. Many others took their oaths in other parts of the state. Class of 2013 members also passed bar exams in several other states.
Associate Dean Dorothy S. Landsberg congratulated the newly admitted bar members at the end of the program. Hundreds of friends and family also attended the formal celebration.
