No, not that kind of bar. :)
I, along with 20 other Seventh Circuit clerks, got sworn into our Circuit's Bar today. It was right before an en banc sitting of our court, which is the only en banc sitting we've had all year. So now I'm licensed to argue cases in front of the Seventh Circuit. Probably won't be doing that any time soon, but a nice thing to have in my back pocket nonetheless. Rob snuck out of work to come watch, even though he joked he wouldn't come unless he got to make the motion. My dad also came for the very brief ceremony. He was coming to Chicago tomorrow, so he decided to come early to see me get sworn in. Very cool.
