    June 10, 2013 – More than 130 University of Wisconsin Law School graduates were admitted to the legal profession today. All seven Wisconsin Supreme Court justices, U.W. Law School Associate Dean Heinz Klug, State Bar President Kevin Klein, and Board of Bar Examiners Director Jacquelynn B. Rothstein welcomed the new lawyers.

    Following the swearing-in ceremonies, Justice Ann Walsh Bradley addressed the new lawyers, invoking the words of former Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Edward Ryan. Ryan addressed new lawyers at the admissions ceremony in June 1873, 140 years ago, and was appointed chief justice of the state’s high court one year later.

    According to Justice Bradley, among those listening to Ryan’s remarks was Robert “Fighting Bob” La Follette, former Congressman and Wisconsin Governor. La Follette refers to Ryan’s 1873 speech to new lawyers in memoirs written years later.

    “I welcome you to a calling of excessive labor, high duty, and great responsibility,” Bradley recited Ryan’s words to new lawyers. “No country is free where the bar is not stronger than the army,” Ryan had said. “The power of integrity is the rule.”

    “May each of you admittees strive to achieve the character described by Chief Justice Ryan,” Justice Bradley said. “May the power of integrity be your rule.”
