In-person law school graduation ceremonies are back … sort of.

Law schools are unveiling their graduation plans for the Class of 2021, and the results are a mixed bag. A significant cohort of schools have said they intend to hold in-person events in large venues with a limited number of guests. Others are sticking with virtual graduations—which were the norm last year when the COVID-19 pandemic was on the rise and campuses were shuttered. Some schools are opting to split the difference this year, with virtual ceremonies supplemented by smaller, in-person events where groups of graduates can gather on campus in their regalia and pose for photos. Still other law schools have yet to announce their commencement plans—a byproduct of the fluid nature of pandemic conditions.
