Dear Class of 2015,
In response to your inquiries, we have been working diligently over the last few weeks on graduation logistics. After studying the various options on and off campus, we have decided to split our commencement program into two ceremonies, honoring the LLM students and JD students separately. Both ceremonies will be held on Sunday, June 7 at Meany Hall. We are waiting for the Meany Hall staff to confirm the exact times of the ceremonies with the unions that represent the sound and lighting crew and front-of-house crew. The draft schedule has the JD ceremony starting around 3:30pm and ending by 5:15pm. This ceremony will be streamed live online. A champagne reception will follow at Gates Hall.
JD students who are eligible to participate in the June 7, 2015 ceremony will receive 6 tickets. Graduating students do not require a ticket. Academic Services will handle the initial ticket distribution. The 3L SBA representatives will work with classmates to determine how to redistribute surplus tickets.
Our current plan is to begin ticket distribution in March, three months before the ceremony. Details about the ticket distribution schedule will be posted soon. We know that having detailed information as soon as possible helps in your planning process. Thanks for your patience as we continue to work on making this day special for you, your family and friends, and our law school community.
All the best, Dean Hotchkiss
