The path from graduation through bar review leads inexorably to that exquisite moment, after decades of work and sacrifice, when a newly minted lawyer takes her or his solemn oath as a member of the bar. At today's ceremony before the Supreme Court of Kentucky in Frankfort, Justice Lisabeth Hughes Abramson (a 1980 graduate of the University of Louisville School of Law) administered the oath to dozens of recent Louisville graduates and other new lawyers from Kentucky's Fourth Supreme Court District.
Suffice it to say that this was a moment of great pride, for the new lawyers, for their families, for Justice Abramson, and for me. I hope that the whole Law School community joins me in celebrating these graduates' success.
I hope to see you all at this evening's Law Alumni Awards Banquet . . . .
