A U.S. Army sergeant serving in Kuwait is scheduled to be sworn in as an attorney licensed to practice in Michigan.
Christopher Horvath is a recent graduate of Thomas M. Cooley Law School. He is scheduled to be sworn in as a new attorney in a video conference ceremony Wednesday.
Horvath was notified in October that he had passed the bar. He left for a 12-month tour of duty last week. His deployment orders precluded his participation in a traditional swearing-in ceremony with his graduating class.
The video conference is being arranged by the Michigan Army National Guard, Michigan Court of Appeals, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan and the law school.
