On October 29, Western New England University School of Law Dean Sudha Setty and a group of alumni took part in a group swearing in at the United States Supreme Court in Washington, D.C.

"It was a proud and emotional moment for the eleven alumni and for me, as we were admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States," said Dean Setty. "I know it's something that we'll never forget. This is the first group admission to the Supreme Court for Western New England University School of Law, and it was a wonderful moment for us as a community."

Western New England University President Anthony S. Caprio joined the alumni for the special occasion, taking part in a breakfast held at the Supreme Court. Afterward, Professor of Law Bruce Miller brought forth the motion to swear in the participants. Joining Setty were Jonathan Goldsmith L’86, Scott Holman L’89, Darlene Karis L’98, Lisa Lippiello L’06, John Looney L’76, Elizabeth Lovejoy L’07, Adam Mandell L’06, David Ostrander L’89, Thomas Pratt L’88, Rebecca Simser L’10, and Cheryl Smith L’83.
