Since 1967, P.A.D. has offered members the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be admitted to the Supreme Court Bar. The 51st Annual P.A.D. Day will be held on June 3-4, 2018.
We make the admission process smooth, affordable and memorable for P.A.D. alumni. To be eligible you must be in at least 3 years good standing with your state bar. If you need help obtaining sponsor signatures, please contact us. We are happy to provide sponsorship to P.A.D. Day participants. The process is simple and the event is one of the most significant in an attorney’s legal career.
This event includes a welcome reception on Sunday evening to meet and mingle with your P.A.D. Brothers and Sisters from across the country. A breakfast will be provided at the Supreme Court prior to your admission. Admittees and guests will have a group picture taken at the Court. Following the ceremony and picture, you will enjoy lunch with guests and prominent P.A.D. members from the D.C. area.
We hope to see you in June for this truly memorable event!
