Four down, 155 to go

Just got sworn into the DC Bar, which makes my fourth swearing in out of, by my count, 159 U.S. jurisdictions (50 states, DC, 94 U.S. districts, 13 Circuit Courts, and the Supremes. I'm not counting the patent bar, the Court of International Trade, the Court of Military Appeals, or any of the other specialized jurisdictions). Now that I qualify, need to send in my app for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, and that will make 5. Whee!

I feel this overwhelmingly silly urge to collect the set - see if I can manage to get admitted to all 159. Also tempted to see how much that would cost in terms of admission fees. I suspect it's appalling.

If you collect the set, do you get nifty commerative glasses?

At $200-500 a pop, if you collect the whole set they should give you a damn statue! Although I at least get to charge DC and VA to the firm. NC I have to pay on my own.
