Students can order personalized announcements through Balfour.


The University of Connecticut School of Law will hold its commencement ceremony on the law school campus on Sunday, May 15, 2022. The procession will begin at 10:00 a.m. and the ceremony will begin at 10:30 a.m.

You must wear your full academic attire for Commencement (cap, tassel, gown, and hood).

Commencement Program

You may download the University's full 2022 Commencement Program or the pages relevant to the law school to save, print, and/or share with friends and family.


The law school commencement ceremony will be livestreamed for those who cannot attend in person. Watch the live stream of the ceremony here (this is also the link to the recording of the ceremony).


GradImages is the official photographer for our commencement ceremonies. The company will photograph graduates and email proofs to them within three to five days after commencement. Graduates may register directly with GradImages in advance to provide accurate contact information and may purchase photos from the company's website. In addition, the law school will have professional photographers taking photos during the ceremony. Those photos will be posted to the law school's Flickr account within two weeks, where they may be downloaded at no charge. Members of the audience using handheld cameras are asked to remain in their seats and keep the aisles clear.


Parking will be available in the school lots as well as neighboring lots (Attorney General's office, Hartford International University for Religion and Peace, CT Historical Society) and ample signage will be posted.


Tickets are not required for the ceremony. Seating is not reserved and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Guest seating will open at 9:00 a.m. There are over 1,000 seats available and will be more than enough for everyone.
