Dean Cynthia Fountaine invites you to participate in a SIU School of Law admission ceremony to the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Dean Fountaine will move your admission in a special ceremony at the Supreme Court on Monday, March 27, 2017.

To celebrate this occasion, a reception in your honor will be held in one of the gallery rooms of the Supreme Court.

A photo of our group at the reception in 2016 is shown above. See previous years photos here. 

You will be responsible for making your own travel arrangements to Washington, D.C., and you may bring one guest into the Courtroom to observe the ceremony.

Spaces are limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to participate in this event, please contact Patty Lynn at 618/453-8761 or plynn@siu.edu.
