May 30, 2017

NIU College of Law hosted alumni and guests as they were admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court of the U.S., on Monday, May 15, in Washington, D.C. This year’s group of 15 inductees included NIU Law alumni and guests.

The exceptional day started at the Supreme Court Building with a private breakfast for the inductees and guests. The swearing-in ceremony was conducted by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., and alumnus Bob Fioretti (’78) served as the Movant by making the motion for this group to be admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court of the U.S.

Immediately following the ceremony, the group was honored with a visit from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who spoke with the NIU Law group and welcomed the new admittees to the Bar of the Supreme Court of the U.S. Finally, the day concluded with a private celebratory luncheon at the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill.
