Vol. 81, No. 6, June
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."
