2019 SUPREME COURT ADMISSIONS PROGRAM
The Young Lawyers Section is proud
to sponsor the 2019 admissions program to the United States Supreme Court. You
do not need to be a member of the Young Lawyers Section to participate.
The ceremony for admission to the
United States Supreme Court is scheduled for Monday, November 18, 2019. Our
last Supreme Court admissions program was well-received and filled up very
quickly. Please note that this program is strictly limited to 50 applicants.
If you are interested in
participating in this exciting event, please
return the pre-registration form with appropriate fee(s) no later than Wednesday,
May 1, 2019. In June, we will forward you the appropriate
paperwork with instructions for processing your actual admission application
and application fee of $200. Pre-registration
does not guarantee you a spot in the admission program, only a completed
application secures a spot. See the pre-registration form for more details.
Please note: To qualify for
admission to the bar of the United States Supreme Court, you must have been
admitted to practice in the highest court of a State, Commonwealth, Territory,
Possession or the District of Columbia since at least November 17, 2016.
For those interested in applying, we
suggest you immediately
obtain an original
Certificate of Good Standing from the Appellate Division where
you were admitted. You must
obtain an original which cannot be more than one-year old.
The limit of 50 applicants will be
based upon the first 50 completed applications and application fees ($200
Supreme Court Application fee), and not upon the receipt of your
pre-registration form. Please note: Do
not send in the $200 Application fee now.
While you do not have to be a member
of the Young Lawyers Section to participate, preference will be given to Young Lawyer Section members,
followed by the order in which your application is received. Again, we are
limited to a total of 50 applicants. If you are not a member of the Young
Lawyers Section, and would like to become one, please contact Amy Jasiewicz at [email protected] or 518.487.5682. In
the event that you have pre-registered, but are not timely in forwarding the
properly completed application, your registration fee will be refunded prior to
October 21, 2019.
