A Message from the Dean
Dear Member of the University of Wisconsin Law School Class of 2013:
The next few months will fly by and soon it will be time for your graduation from this institution.
The 2013 UW Law School graduation events include three important ceremonies.
On Thursday, May 16, 2013, at 7 p.m., the UW Law School will host an Honors and Awards Ceremony. The ceremony will be held at the Gordon Dining and Events Center, 770 W. Dayton St. in Madison. Light refreshments will be served at a reception afterward. All award presenters, award recipients, family and friends will be invited to attend the reception.
The UW Law School Hooding Ceremony will be held on Friday, May 17, 2013, at 1 p.m. in the Exhibit Hall of the Monona Terrace Convention Center. This is the Law School’s own ceremony. Each graduate’s name will be announced, and the graduates will receive their doctoral hoods individually. You will hear from the speakers your class has chosen. Following the ceremony, light refreshments will be served on the Monona Terrace rooftop. This ceremony and reception honors UW Law School graduates. Family and friends are welcome to attend.
The Wisconsin Graduate and Professional Student Commencement Ceremony will be held on Friday, May 17, 2013, at 5:30 p.m. at the Kohl Center. This is the university-wide ceremony for all graduates of UW-Madison graduate and professional schools. The timing allows you and your family to attend both the Law School and university ceremonies, if you so choose.
Please review the Graduate Handbook, which contains important information that will help you prepare for graduation. If you have questions regarding the graduation events, please do not hesitate to contact Lynn Thompson, LFThomp1@wisc.edu, director of events.
Again, congratulations on your graduation and please stay in touch.
With warm regards,
Fred W. & Vi Miller Dean and Professor of Law
