Plans for 2022

As long as public-health conditions permit, both the Class of 2020 and 2021 are invited to return to campus with their guests on the weekend of May 13, 2022 to celebrate with a weekend of activities including the University ceremony, a Law School diploma ceremony, and receptions for guests. In the coming months, the University and Law School will provide further updates and information as it becomes available. For now, we hope that you will save the date.
