Dear Class of 2018: If you recently learned that you passed the bar exam, congratulations! All your effort and hard work paid off!
If you have passed both the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) and the Georgia Bar exam, you are now eligible for admission to the State Bar of Georgia. By now, you should have gotten the following invitation from Emory Law:
Your Emory Law Community would be honored to facilitate your admission to the Georgia Bar with a special Swearing-In Ceremony & Reception at Emory Law in Tull Auditorium on Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. Judge Courtney L. Johnson 00L will preside. All your friends and family are invited!
Arrive by 5:45 p.m. We will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. and the entire event should conclude by 8:00 p.m., including time to process and sign the certificates following the ceremony.
To participate in the Swearing-In Ceremony & Reception, you must complete the following:
1) Register yourself and your guests.
2) Submit your original Certificate of Eligibility by end of business day on Thursday, November 8, 2018. Delivery instructions below. You received this certificate with the notification of your Georgia Bar passage, and possession of the original document (not a copy) is the only method by which the Clerk of Court may process your admission. Please note: Your certificate will be mailed to the most recent address on file with the Georgia Bar. Please confirm your address with the Georgia Bar to ensure accurate delivery.
Please hand-deliver your certificate to the wooden lockbox outside of Dean Brokaw’s office (G131) in Gambrell Hall or mail it via registered delivery (FedEx, UPS, USPS, etc.) to:
