Craddock to Appear Before United States Supreme Court to Sponsor Colleagues’ Admission to Supreme Court Bar

Angela Farag Craddock, shareholder at Young Moore and Chair of the North Carolina Bar Association’s Appellate Practice Section, will travel to Washington, D.C. this week to serve as sponsor for a group of 16 colleagues from the NCBA Appellate Practice Section seeking admission to practice before the United States Supreme Court. In an in-person ceremony before the full bench of the United States Supreme Court scheduled for the morning of May 23, 2024, Craddock will address the Justices to move for the cohort’s admission to the Supreme Court Bar. Among those traveling to be sworn in is fellow Young Moore attorney Christy C. Dunn. Admission qualifies lawyers to argue before the highest court in the nation, which shapes US law and policy. It is also a testament to their dedication and contribution to the legal profession.

As Chair of the NCBA Appellate Practice Section over the past year, Craddock has led the Section’s efforts in fostering excellence in appellate advocacy and supporting the professional development of appellate lawyers in North Carolina. The upcoming ceremony marks a significant milestone for the Appellate Practice Section, with 16 members being admitted to the highest court in the nation.

“This is a proud moment for our firm and for the NCBA Appellate Practice Section,” said Craddock. “I am honored to serve as sponsor for such a talented group of attorneys, especially our own Christy Dunn, and to address the Justices of the Supreme Court on their behalf. This ceremony represents the culmination of more than a year of planning by the Section and its collective dedication to the practice of law and appellate advocacy.”

Angela focuses her law practice at Young Moore on helping businesses and institutional clients navigate civil litigation, state administrative litigation, and appeals. She leads the firm’s Appellate Practice and is a member of the Transportation and Logistics, Workers’ Compensation, and Insurance Regulation Practice groups. Angela also helped spearhead the formation of Young Moore’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee as its inaugural Chair.

Angela was voted into Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite Appellate Practice Hall of Fame in 2023 and is recognized in Best Lawyers in America® and North Carolina Super Lawyers.
