Recognition Ceremony for the Class of 2020 and December 2021 Graduates


The Cornell Law School Convocation for the Class of 2020 and December 2021 will take place on Saturday, May 14, 2022 at 10:00 AM at Newman Arena in Bartels Hall followed by a reception later at 4:00 PM at Myron Taylor Hall.

Tickets will not be required for guests attending the Law School Convocation. Accordingly, given the capacity at Newman Arena, students may bring as many guests as they wish.

Public health requirements for the Law School Convocation and University Commencement are available on the University’s COVID-19 website. The Law School will follow the same public health requirements for the Convocation Ceremony as Cornell University will use for its Commencement ceremony, in accordance with the guidelines set forth by New York State and the University.

These plans are subject to change if the public health situation warrants. Graduates will receive an e-mail update if there any changes to Law School plans for Convocation. Up-to-date information on Convocation also will be available on the Law School’s Convocation website.
