Memphis Law celebrates all graduates with three annual commencement ceremonies, in
May, August, and December. (August and December commencements are held with the University’s
main ceremony.) Graduating students will be contacted by the Registrar several months
prior to the end of their last semester regarding graduation requirements and procedures,
the bar examination, and the commencement ceremony.
