Attorney Oath and Swearing-In
Friday, June 1, 2018
10:00 - 11:30 am
Loyola Law School
919 Albany Street, Los Angeles
The Alumni Office hosts a Swearing-In Ceremony every June for Loyola Law School graduates who pass the February California bar exam and every December for graduates who pass the July California bar exam. Graduates are welcome to invite an unlimited number of family and friends to the ceremony and reception. Parking is free. The event requires business attire.
- Remember to bring your State Bar oath card. The State Bar mailed this to you as part of your Bar packet. The law school will not have extra copies at the ceremony.
- If you forget your oath card, you are welcome to take the oath at the ceremony, but you will need to follow the directions in your Bar packet on how to get your oath card signed.
- If you lose your State Bar packet, you can pick up another packet at the State Bar of California, Office of Admissions.
- Being sworn in to the U.S. District Court is optional. Should you wish to take the federal oath, the law school will have hard copies of the form at the ceremony. However, you are responsible for completing the paperwork and sending it, with the appropriate fees, to the court.
If you are unable to attend the ceremony at Loyola Law School, your Bar packet will include a list of other locations where you can be sworn in. Additionally, you can be sworn in by other officials. There are notaries on the Loyola Law School campus who can swear in graduates for free. Please contact the law school at (213) 736-1000 to learn more.
