JOCS Attorneys Participate In First Annual CLM Group Admission to the Supreme Court

Steve Schwinn, Esq., a partner in the firm, organized the first annual CLM Group admission to the Supreme Court of the United States in May 2011. During the course of this event, Chief Justice John Roberts granted the motion of James F. Jordan, Esq., one of the founding partners of the firm and presently Of Counsel, to admit twenty CLM members and fellows from across the country to the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States on May 16, 2011.

The Council on Litigation Management ("CLM"), the largest fully inclusive defense organization, is comprised of thousands of insurance companies, corporations, corporate counsel, risk managers, insurance professionals, claims adjusters and attorneys.

The night before, CLM's D.C. Chapter hosted a welcome reception for the applicants and their guests at the historic Old Ebbitt Grill. Monday's ceremony was preceded with a continental breakfast in the lawyers' lounge and adjacent rooftop patio. Afterwards, the newly admitted members and their guests were given a tour and lecture on the architecture and traditions of the Court by the Curator. Then, in association with the Potomac RIMS, CLM sponsored an education and networking luncheon at Art & Soul on Capitol Hill.

In addition to being able to take cases before the Court, members of the Bar are entitled to preferential seating at oral argument and use of the Constitutional Law Library.

Next year, the CLM Group Admission will be held on the Tuesday following Memorial Day, May 29, 2012.
