Forty-five recent law school graduates who passed the State Bar of California's July 2014 examination attended McGeorge's 14th annual Swearing-In Ceremony on Dec. 3, 2014, in the Lecture Hall.
Alumni Ronald Robie, '67, and Andrea Hoch, ’84, associate justices 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. Senior Judge William Shubb 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 (103) of McGeorge graduates who passed the July 2014 California 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 2014 members also passed bar exams in Georgia, Massachusetts, Nevada, and New York. Hundreds of friends and family also attended the formal celebration.
