On behalf of the faculty and administration, it gives us great pleasure to recognize and celebrate those students in the Class 2022 receiving their professional degrees at the University of Michigan Law School. Senior Day is an important event for all of our graduates. Our students arrive as part of a very special group and graduate as spectacular individuals. We are excited to be planning for in-person commencement activities in spring 2022. 

We will celebrate the Class of 2022 on Friday, May 6, at 4:00 p.m. at Hill Auditorium. A reception in the Law Quadrangle for graduates and their families will immediately follow the ceremony.


As the Senior Day ceremony (Michigan Law commencement) nears, here are the things you need to do ahead of time:

  • Provide your guests with date, time, and location information for the ceremony.
  • Let us know how you would like your name printed in the Senior Day program.
  • Rent academic attire from our gown vendor.
  • Vote for the student speaker for the ceremony. 

Congratulations parents, friends, and family of Michigan Law graduates! 

If your student is a member of the Class of 2022, we encourage you to attend the ceremony at 4:00 PM on Friday, May 6. Tickets are not required. If you cannot attend, you can watch the ceremony at a later date. The ceremony will be recorded and the link will be accessible on this page following the ceremony.
