Save the Date!

The Class of 2023 Berkeley Law Commencement Ceremony will be held on Friday, May 12th, 2023 at 9:00 am in the Hearst Greek Theatre. 

Further details will be posted as the date approaches. If you have any questions please email




We are also planning a reception for graduates and their guests immediately following the ceremony. Such events are always contingent on current public health guidance and UC Berkeley event policies.


If you require an accommodation for effective communication (ASL interpreting/CART captioning, alternative media formats, etc.) or anything else to fully participate in this event, please contact Chelsea Yuan at with as much advance notice as possible.


Each graduating student will be able to collect up to eight tickets for commencement beginning in April, once ticketing availability is announced. If more tickets are needed, the remaining tickets will be made available to graduating students on a first come first serve basis the week before commencement.

Live Stream

Commencement will be live streamed for guests who are unable to attend in person. A recording without the name reading portion will be posted at some point after the event.
