Graduation Weather Delay: Due to the severe weather expected to pass through our area and to ensure the safety of our graduates and their guests, the Law School Graduation Ceremony is now scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.
For graduates: Graduates should report to Lerner Hall at 6:30 p.m. (rather than 4 p.m. as originally planned). Students will enter through Broadway and must wear their regalia.
For Guests: Gates will open for guests at 7 p.m. (rather than 4 p.m. as originally planned). Guests should enter campus on 114th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue before proceeding through the Carmen and John Jay Gates. Please note that these entrances require climbing a flight of stairs. Guests with disabilities should enter campus at 116th Street and Amsterdam Avenue via the College Walk gate.
