Supreme Court bar inducts 26 Tulanians in D.C. ceremony

April 09, 2014

Twenty-five Tulane Law School graduates and Professor Amy Gajda went before the justices for induction into the U.S. Supreme Court bar April 7.

The attorneys were presented by Dean David Meyer, a Supreme Court bar member who clerked for Justice Byron White in 1992-93, and sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts.

The morning began with continental breakfast in the West Conference Room, one of the Court’s grandest ceremonial spaces, and a briefing by Scott Harris, who just months ago succeeded 1962 Tulane alumnus General William Suter as Clerk of the Supreme Court. Following the swearing-in in open court, the group returned to the conference room and met privately with Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Samuel Alito, who each stopped by to congratulate the lawyers after the ceremony.

Following a luncheon, the Tulane group took a special tour of the U.S. Capitol, including the old Supreme Court chamber where McCulloch v. Maryland, the Dred Scott case, and other landmark decisions were argued, and met with Sen. David Vitter (L ’88) of Louisiana.

Tulane alumni from 14 states and Washington, D.C., took part in the event. This was Tulane Law School’s second alumni swearing-in ceremony. The school will host its next alumni swearing-in event on April 6, 2015.
