An Officer of the Supreme Court

This past week was especially eventful; the highlight for me came on Tuesday, when I was sworn in as a member of the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States. Kudos especially go to the Alumni Office of Cardozo Law School, which set the whole thing up- breakfast, sponsorship, and all. We got to see all the justices in action, as we sat right up front through the reading of decisions and oral arguments. (Sorry, no pictures allowed in the courtroom.) An amazing time all around.

As long as I'm photoblogging, I include a few other pictures which, as Dr. Watson would say, "have lain long in my portfolio." (Looking through my files, I see I've never posted my Israel photos from November. Some day, perhaps.)

For us non-lawyers, please explain what it means to be part of the bar of the Supreme Court. Thank you.

Gil, it means that should I ever have to argue a case before the Supreme Court, I will be allowed to do so. The requirements are filling out a form, paying a fee, getting sponsored by someone already a member (in our case, Federal judge and Cardozo alum and board member Sandra Feuerstein), and taking the oath. I don't know if I'll ever use it, but hey- you never know! And it's a very nice thing to have.
