Supreme Court of the United States

Bar Memorials


Since 1822, the Supreme Court has memorialized Justices who have died with a meeting of the Supreme Court’s Bar, followed by a Special Sitting of the Court. The Bar Meeting features a series of tributes to the late Justice and concludes with the adoption of resolutions in memory and appreciation of the Justice’s life, work, and service. The resolutions adopted by the Bar are then presented to the Court in a formal, ceremonial Courtroom presentation.
