    State Bar welcomes 138 new lawyers

    Marquette Law School class sworn in at Capitol

    On May 19, 138 Marquette Law School graduates were admitted to practice. The new lawyers were welcomed to the profession by Wisconsin Supreme Court justices N. Patrick Crooks, David T. Prosser, Patience Roggensack, and Annette Ziegler, Marquette Law School Dean Joseph D. Kearney, State Bar President Thomas Basting, and Wisconsin Board of Bar Examiners Director John E. Kosobucki.

    Following each swearing-in ceremony, Justice Crooks spoke to the new lawyers. "We have every reason to take great pride in our profession and have the most solemn obligation to all others who have gone before us to carry on our functions as lawyers and judges in a manner so as to pass on this heritage undiminished and untarnished. On the matter of professional pride and integrity, I suggest that these are the hallmarks which distinguish the true lawyer from the mere attorney-at-law."

    See a complete list of the new lawyers. These new admittees bring State Bar membership to 22,985. U.W. Law School graduates will be sworn in on June 11.
