School of Law
As Justice Carol Kapsner administered the oath, 46 lawyers were admitted to the North Dakota Bar, Monday, October 10, 2010. Many of those sworn in are recent graduates of the University of North Dakota School of Law.
Speakers included State Board of Law Examiners president Paul Richard, Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley, Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, U.N.D. Law School Dean Kathryn Rand, and State Bar Association president Kristi Pettit Venhuizen.
Chief Justice Gerald VandeWalle told the new lawyers, "North Dakota is somewhat of an anomaly in the economic climate of our nation. Our lawyers are busy. While I am grateful for that fact, I ask you to remember the tenets of the pledge and the oath you have just taken and to resist temptation to the shortcuts that might lead to disrespect and dishonor of those principles."

I ask each of you to volunteer for the pro bono panel or the reduced fee panel established by the State Bar Association to meet this need."
