Admission ceremonies occur throughout the year (see the complete list of admission dates). The major Bar Admission Ceremony, predominantly for articled clerks, takes place every June in Halifax. A member of the judiciary oversees these official court proceedings. Applicants have the option of making their official declarations and Oaths in three languages: English, French, or Mi’kmaq. After the ceremony, applicants sign the Roll of Lawyers, and only then are they allowed to practice law in Nova Scotia.
