Hundreds of new lawyers to be admitted to Illinois bar

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Hundreds of new attorneys beginning Thursday can practice law in Illinois. Justices of the Illinois Supreme Court will administer the oath at five locations.

The 668 candidates passed the Illinois state bar examination, an ethics exam, and received approval from the court’s Committee on Character and Fitness.

Illinois Supreme Court Justice Lloyd A. Karmeier will administer the attorney’s oath to 118 of the new lawyers in a ceremony in Collinsville.

Justice Karmeier will preside over the ceremony and welcome the members of the class, families and friends.

Circuit Judge Ronald D. Spears, of Taylorville, from the Fourth Judicial Circuit will  speak. A retired Army Colonel, Judge Spears served in the Illinois Army National Guard as State Judge Advocate and a Certified Military Judge. He was appointed as a Circuit judge in 1993. He was elected to the position in 1994 and has been retained in three elections.

The new attorneys will bring the total number of licensed attorneys in Illinois to approximately 91,500.

The Fifth Judicial District is comprised of the following counties: Alexander, Bond, Christian, Clay, Clinton, Crawford, Edwards, Effingham, Fayette, Franklin, Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, Johnson, Lawrence, Madison, Marion, Massac, Monroe, Montgomery, Perry, Pope, Pulaski, Randolph, Richland, Saline, Shelby, St. Clair, Wabash, Wayne, Washington, White, Williamson and Union.

Ceremonies in the other districts will be held in Chicago, Springfield, Ottawa and Elgin.
