Law School Commencement

The Law School has traditionally held its Commencement exercises in the Fall (for August and December graduates) and in the Spring (for May graduates). At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Law School held virtual celebrations for graduates before we were able to return to in-person exercises in Fall 2021.

The University of Illinois Chicago continues to monitor changes in the global pandemic to ensure our Commencement events align with the latest health and safety guidelines, but we are hopefully future events will remain on campus. Be assured, no matter the format, the Law School team is committed to celebrating all of your accomplishments.
