Dear Graduating Students,

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! We are looking forward to celebrating your accomplishments as you embark upon the next stage of your legal careers.

Many of you are asking about this spring’s Commencement and the surrounding events. We are working hard on finalizing all the details and need your input before we announce a final schedule. Please see below for a brief overview of our plans and a link to a (very quick) survey to help estimate attendance.

The Law Center Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2022 will take place on Sunday, May 22, at 2:00 p.m. on Healy Lawn at the Georgetown University Hilltop Campus. This is the ceremony where students will process onto the lawn, hear from the honorary degree speaker, and have degrees ceremoniously conferred by Georgetown University President John J. DeGioia. Tickets are not required for the Commencement Ceremony and space will only be limited if the ceremony needs to move indoors due to inclement weather.

We will also be hosting Celebration Days on the Law Center Campus on Thursday (5/19), Friday (5/20), and Saturday (5/21) leading up to Sunday’s Commencement Ceremony. These celebratory events will be a chance for students to gather by section or program and have the opportunity to hear their name called, walk across a stage, and enjoy a reception with their classmates and guests.

We are eagerly looking forward to our graduates celebrating together along with their family and friends. To that end, we are asking you to complete this short questionnaire to let us know your anticipated plans for both Commencement and the Celebration Days. We will use your responses to finalize the schedule for the Celebration Days.

We know many of you are anxious to make plans for Commencement Week, so we appreciate your prompt response to this survey. Please be on the lookout for more information in the coming weeks, including details about graduate portraits, regalia, and other graduation events.

Thank you and please email with any questions. We will also keep our Law Commencement Website updated as we move towards May 22, 2022!

All the best,
The Georgetown Law Commencement Team
