After your degrees are conferred, each graduate’s name and degree will be said aloud, starting with virtual student participants.

  • For those students participating in-person, law staff will signal when your row should stand to ascend the ramp. Please have your GradPass pulled up on your phone or printed out and ready to be scanned.
  • As you ascend the ramp, each student will take a diploma cover and scan their GradPass. You will pause for a photo when you reach the middle of the ramp, removing your mask for a quick photo. Please replace it immediately after your picture is taken.
  • You will then move to a secondary location to take a posed cap & gown photo with a backdrop, then return to your seat. If a student does not want to do a posed photo; they can return directly to their seat. 

GradImages is the official photographer for Emory Law’s Degree Candidate Recognition Ceremony. They will contact students via your Emory email address approximately one week following the ceremony, when photos are available for preview and purchase. If you do not receive the email, please go to and click “Find My Photos.”
