We are proud to announce that attorney Rabih Hamawi was sworn into the Supreme Court of the United States on October 31, 2023. Mr. Hamawi was proud to stand in front of the nine Justices to be sworn in. He considers it to be one of his greatest honors. Mr. Hamawi’s parents and wife accompanied him in this once-in-a-lifetime moment.
To qualify for Supreme Court admission, applicants must have been admitted to practice in the highest court of a State for a period of at least three years immediately before the date of application; must not have been the subject of any adverse disciplinary action pronounced or in effect during that three-year period; and must appear to the Court to be of good moral and professional character.
Additionally, the applicant needs to be sponsored by two current members of the Supreme Court Bar. Attorney Albert Dib of Jefferson Law Center, and attorney Kari Melkonian of Collins Einhorn sponsored attorney Rabih Hamawi.
Rabih described the experience as a humbling reminder of the importance of serving as an attorney. Part of the opportunity included observing oral arguments before the Court addressing key First Amendment issues. Mr. Hamawi would like to thank Cooley Law School; its President, Dean James McGrath; and Director of Advancement and Alumni Relations, Bill Arnold for making this admission possible.
Mr. Hamawi obtained his Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree with high honors from the Lebanese University in Beirut, Lebanon in 2002; his Master of Science in Finance from Walsh College in 2008; and his Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD) degree, magna cum laude, from Cooley Law School in 2014.
Mr. Hamawi focuses his practice on representing policyholders in fire, property damage, and insurance-coverage disputes with insurers and in errors-and-omissions cases against insurance agents.
