So that articling students participate in a swearing-in ceremony that reflects the solemn nature of the event, the Bar of Montreal holds several swearing-in ceremonies throughout the year. Each of these ceremonies takes place in the presence of a representative of the Bench, who acts as Honorary President. This person and the Bâtonnier or First Councillor and a representative of the Young Bar of Montreal speak on each such occasion. Members of the Council land former Bâtonniers also attend the ceremonies.

To maintain the decorum such ceremonies deserve, the guests of honour and the articling students must wear the appropriate robe and collar.

Au cours de l’année 2020-2021, la bâtonnière sortante, Me Robin Schiller, a présidée 54 cérémonies de prestation de serment, lors desquelles 758 stagiaires ont prêté serment. En raison de la pandémie, les cérémonies ont eu lieu de manière virtuelle, offrant tout de même un moment mémorable et solennel aux nouveaux avocats.
