SECTION 466
Attorney's oath of office
Judiciary (JUD) CHAPTER 30, ARTICLE 15
§ 466. Attorney's oath of office. Each person, admitted as prescribed
in this chapter must, upon his or her admission, take the constitutional
oath of office in open court, and subscribe the same in a roll or book,
to be kept in the office of the clerk of the appellate division of the
supreme court for that purpose.

Any person now in actual service in the armed forces of the United
States or whose induction or enlistment therein is imminent, or within
sixty days after such person (1) has been honorably discharged, or (2)
has received a discharge other than bad conduct or dishonorable from
such service, if such person has a qualifying condition, as defined in
section three hundred fifty of the executive law, or (3) has received a
discharge other than bad conduct or dishonorable from such service, if
such person is a discharged LGBT veteran, as defined in section three
hundred fifty of the executive law, if the appellate division of the
supreme court in the department in which such person resides is not in
session, may subscribe and take the oath before a justice of that court,
with the same force and effect as if it were taken in open court, except
that in the first department the oath must be taken before the presiding
justice or, in his or her absence, before the senior justice.
