Commencement

Save the Date!

Class of 2022 Spring Commencement will be held at the Greek Theatre on Friday, May 13th at 9 AM.

Reception immediately to follow for graduates and their guests at the law school. 

While we very much hope that holding an in-person commencement ceremony will be possible, holding such a ceremony is always contingent on public health guidance and UC Berkeley policy.

If you have any questions please contact Ilene Ochoa.

 

FAQ

A: Each graduating student will be allotted eight tickets, and we will make available any remaining tickets a week before commencement on a first-come, first-served basis.
