The Hon. Christopher C. Sabella of the 13th Judicial Circuit Court administered The Florida Bar’s Oath of Admission to WMU-Cooley Law School graduates this week, along with one of WMU-Cooley’s professors. International Law Professor Paul Carrier adds Florida to the states he now can practice in. The Oath contains important principles to guide attorneys in the legal profession.
Carrier, who has taught at WMU-Cooley’s Michigan campuses since 2003, recently joined the law school’s Tampa Bay campus. He has been a member of the Michigan bar since 1991 and hopes to use lessons from the Florida Bar Exam while teaching. Carrier also plans to begin doing pro bono work at the law school’s debt relief clinic, which serves the Hillsborough County community.
In addition to Professor Carrier being approved for admission, other new admittees to The Florida Bar participating in the ceremony included WMU-Cooley graduates Eric Nelsestuen and Marisol Perez.
