Thank you to all who have registered! Our REGISTRATION ... -form.html for the 2022 Commencement Ceremony is still open! You must register to walk in the ceremony and here is where you request tickets for family and friends to attend. Registration will CLOSE March 4, 2022.

Currently, mandatory mask-wearing, as well as proof of full Covid vaccination and photo I.D., is in effect for all attending the ceremony. Please keep in mind that as public health conditions continue to evolve, guidelines may change between now and our Commencement date in May. We ask that you remain patient and flexible.

Review our Commencement website with FAQs as well as General Information.


Congratulations to Austin Mann '22 for being selected as your 2022 student commencement speaker. And thank you to the students who submitted speeches and all that volunteered to sit on the committee to review all the wonderful speeches submitted. It was a difficult choice!


All graduates are required to wear the authorized University at Buffalo School of Law academic regalia provided for you by the cap and gown vendor. All rental orders are taken online starting NOW through Friday, April 1, 2022, via the University Bookstore / Jostens ... reserved=0 (Under Doctoral Degree Candidates, click on All Other Schools, and then Rent online from Jostens – Graduation Cap & Gown/Student 2022 Doctor ... reserved=0 ).

There are also links to order rings and other graduation items. The cost for J.D. and LL.M. regalia rentals is $75.50 + tax. If a head measurement is required for the tam (hats), I have a tape measure in my office for accuracy.

All orders placed by March 11 may be picked up at the University Bookstore (N. Campus) beginning 4/20; orders placed 3/12 - 4/01 may be picked up beginning 5/13. Late fees will be applied to orders after the scheduled order deadline of Friday, April 1.

Please note that you must return the gown, hood and tam (hat), as it is only rented. The tassel is yours to keep. The law school cannot accept regalia orders.
