Dear Columbia Law School Class of 2016,
Congratulations on reaching this wonderful milestone! While we are sad to see you move on, we are delighted to be celebrating with you.
Your graduation experience includes two important ceremonies.
1. University Commencement on Wednesday, May 18 at 10:30 a.m. on the steps of Low Library.
2. Law School Graduation on Thursday, May 19 at 3:00 p.m. on the South Field of the main Columbia campus, in front of Butler Library.
There is more information about both of these events in the 2016 Graduation Handbook, which may be found online (Click here) and which is available as a downloadable app for your mobile phone (click here). To download the app, you will need to enter the code lawgrad16 when prompted. Additional information about University Commencement may also be found online at theUniversity Commencement website.
We know that there is a lot going on for you at this time, but please try to make sure that you pay particular attention to the various deadlines related to graduation. In fact, as a member of the Class of 2016, your first deadline is to download and register your Handbook as soon as you are able so that you don’t miss anything.
And, of course, don’t forget to savor the rest of your time here at Columbia Law School!
