The Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art & Portraiture
The event is intended for graduates and their friends and family.
Enjoy a festive evening including a dinner buffet, beer & wine bar, and dancing with your fellow graduates and their guests at the Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture in the Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard. The first, second, and third floors of the gallery, including the Presidential Portrait Gallery, will remain open for viewing by Gala attendees.
Attire for the Gala is Semi-formal, Black Tie optional. Most attendees wear a suit, tuxedo, cocktail, or evening dress.
The Graduation Gala is a sell-out event with limited capacity so a lottery will be held in late January for graduating students to enter for tickets. Graduating students will be limited to one (1) student ticket and a maximum of three (3) guest tickets. All graduating students will receive more information to their Georgetown Law Email including details about the lottery process for tickets and a link in the lottery entry form.
Registration will begin in mid March, and be done online. Reservations for graduates will be $45 and $80 for guests. We accept check or GoCard but unfortunately cannot accept credit cards or cash. Georgetown Law subsidizes this event to keep these prices reasonable for graduates and guests. The Gala is well attended and sells out each year.
