Wisconsin Bar Swearing-in Ceremony 

On the Monday following Marquette graduation activities, the Wisconsin Supreme Court typically hosts a swearing-in ceremony (solely for Marquette Law School graduates). The swearing-in will be followed by an invitation to the new members of the bar to sign the book of lawyers, a time-honored tradition. Ceremony times and communications come directly from the Board of Bar Examiners (BBE). If possible, a live web stream of the swearing-in ceremonies may be available via WisconsinEye.
