The admission ceremony will take place before the full panel of justices on Monday at the Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C.

Pattermann is among 37 attorneys nationwide - and the only attorney from Iowa or Nebraska - selected by the American Bar Association to be sworn in by the nine justices of the United States Supreme Court.

A reception for admittees and guests will be held Sunday evening in Washington, and a brunch will follow the swearing-in ceremony Monday morning at the Supreme Court Building.
