P.A.D. Day at the Supreme Court
54th Annual P.A.D. Day at the Supreme Court
May 31-June 1, 2020 – Washington, D.C.


Since 1967, P.A.D. has offered members the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be admitted to the United States Supreme Court Bar. The 54th Annual P.A.D. Day will be held on May 31-June 1, 2020.

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 the highest court in your state. 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. A luncheon follows the ceremony with guests and prominent P.A.D. members from the D.C. area.

Update on the Status of the 2020 P.A.D. Day Event

P.A.D.’s International Executive Board and Executive Office have taken careful consideration regarding the safety surrounding our national events in the coming months. Unfortunately, it will not be possible for P.A.D. to host P.A.D. Day at the Supreme Court this June as planned.

We look forward to hosting P.A.D. Day in June, 2021. If you’d like to be added to the interest list, please email Director of Communications, Cory Freeman, at cory@pad.org.
