Emory Commencement Exercise

  • Law students are required to particpate in the Emory Commencement Exercises before the Law School Diploma Ceremony.
  • Dress: Commencement robes and velvet caps are heavyweight, so dress appropriately but for comfort. Dress for guests is business casual—most hooders wear suits/ties, but it is not necessary. Your hooder does not wear academic regalia.
  • Hooders: We provide a special reserved section of the audience close to the aisle so hooders can accompany the graduate to the stage. Please advise your hooder that two seats have been reserved for the hooder and a guest in the name of the graduate. Hooding instructions » 
  • Diplomas: Students receive blank diplomas. Actual engraved diplomas are picked up when regalia is returned on graduation day.

Bar Certifications

Georgia Bar: The registrar will notify the Georgia Bar of your academic eligibility to sit for the exam which will extend their official transcript due date.

IMPORTANT—Even though the registrar sends this letter, YOU must officially request that your Emory Law transcript be sent to the GA Bar. Transcript Requests should be ordered through OPUS. If you order now, be sure to check the box "Hold for Spring Grades."

Other State Bars: Students applying to other state bars should turn in the certification forms for completion and submission before or after graduation. Please remember to have a final official transcript sent to the bar admissions office in the state you will take the exam. Transcript Requests should be ordered through OPUS. If you order now, be sure to check the box "Hold for Spring Grades."
