Receiving the actual certificate in the mail might take a while but getting admitted and checking the disciplinary board website for your bar id number and admission date could probably be updated early next week.

Have not received my pass packet as of yet. I live in Suburban Philadelphia. Starting to get irrational fear . . .

Most likely will be in today's mail since yesterday was a postal holiday.

Not sure how the swearing in works, but I didn't think it was required. I thought all we needed to do was submit the application to Pittsburgh, and possibly have an attorney in good standing sign something?


Swearing in is not required in PA. When you receive your packet in the mail you will be given a form to fill out if you want to do the swearing in ceremonies. Regardless all you have to do is fill out the paperwork you receive and have a lawyer nominate you for acceptance into the bar and you will then receive your license in the mail shortly after.


Thank you! Do you happen to know if it has to be a PA attorney? I am in Florida, but I certainly can send it to a PA attorney to sign if need be.

My understanding was that it had to be a PA licensed attorney


For the oath part: Does anyone know if the person who administers the oath has to be located in PA? The form said that you can use a notary public so I'd assume you can use anyone anywhere. I was hoping to use a NY judge because I'm located there right now so it'd be much easier than traveling to PA. Just didn't know if any judges are qualified to give the PA oath.
