The Third Circuit Court and Detroit Bar Association will join together this year to celebrate the success of qualifying attorneys who are entering the legal profession by hosting an Admissions Ceremony.  This ceremony will either be a virtual or in-person event pending Covid restrictions.  New lawyers can also request a private swearing in ceremony by contacting the Wayne County Clerk’s Office at 313-224-5510.

2021 Spring Admission Ceremony Date to be announced in May.

Lawyers contribute in various ways, helping clients directly and holding public offices of trust.  Admission to the bar is the culmination of years of study and the successful passing of a rigorous exam.  New Lawyers will take the oath of the profession.  The admission ceremony marks the beginning of individuals beginning the practice of law and is celebrated with friends and family as the venerated lawyers and judges welcome the new lawyers into the profession.
