As part of the effort to bring real-life experiences in the legal system directly to law students, the college will play host to a naturalization ceremony on Friday, Jan. 23, at 2 p.m. in Room 114 of the UC College of Law.
At least 30 new citizens are expected to take part in the ceremony, which will be led by the Honorable Susan J. Dlott, the chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.
The naturalization ceremony is the final step in the long process of becoming a citizen. In addition to welcoming new citizens into the country, it is an opportunity to celebrate their new status, introduce them to our justice system and share the importance of citizenship.
The ceremony is open to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reservations, though, can be made by e-mailing Toni McGuire within the UC College of Law.
