71 Graduates Sworn Into State Bar of California

June 16, 2011

Tags: Student Life, 2011

Seventy-one Pacific McGeorge School of Law graduates passed the February 2011 bar exam and were sworn into the State Bar of California this month. Many of the new attorneys attended a law school reception on June 3, following an induction ceremony at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in downtown Sacramento.

Three justices of the California Court of Appeal, 3rd Appellate District, attended the swearing-in ceremony and reception. Mike Levy, the president of the Sacramento Bar Association, and June Coleman, the organization's vice president, were also on hand to congratulate the new attorneys along with several administration and faculty members.

Pacific McGeorge, which has an Evening Division program that can be completed in three-and-a-half years, traditionally has one of the largest groups of February bar passers in the state. It conferred juris doctor degrees on 46 of its graduates in December 2010, making them eligible for the February 2011 exam.

One hundred ninety-four graduates had passed the July 2010 state bar examination and were sworn in last December. Pacific McGeorge has 9,100 active members of the State Bar, more members than all but four other law schools in the country.
