Columbia Law School’s Class Day will be held on Monday, May 15, 2023. Guests can enter the venue (South Lawn, in front of Butler Library) at 4:30 p.m. Guests must be seated by 5:10 p.m. The ceremony will start at 5:30, and the reception will start at 8 p.m. The University Commencement Ceremony will take place in the morning on Wednesday, May 17, 2023.
During Class Day, graduates will hear their names read; the Class Day ceremony is exclusively for the Law School. Commencement is a ceremony with all Columbia University graduates. It is a lot of fun, but individual names are not read.
We look forward to celebrating with you!
