Oregon Law Commencements

We are extremely disappointed to announce that our planned in-person spring commencement for JD and LLM students, which was scheduled for May 16, is canceled.

People are at the heart of Oregon Law, and we know how much the ceremony means to our students and their families. With them in mind, we remain committed to honoring the Class of 2020 and celebrating their many accomplishments in a reimagined ceremony. We’ll share updates as they become available.
