Commencement - Capital University Law School


  • Due to the current public health emergency, the Law School has made the difficult decision to postpone the May 2020 Commencement ceremony. This will allow the Law School to respond appropriately to protect the health and well-being of the Law School community while also ensuring that graduates and families have adequate time to plan.

    The faculty and staff recognize the importance of commencement to the entire community, and particularly to graduates and their families. The Law School is committed to recognizing and celebrating the accomplishments of its graduates in a manner that befits the significance of their achievements. In consultation with the University and state and local officials, the Law School will continue to gather information and develop plans to re-schedule commencement or proceed with alternative ways to honor graduates.

    Please note that upon completion of credits, students will earn their degrees, and the Law School will be able to complete and submit the Final Law School Certificate to the Supreme Court of Ohio or other jurisdictions in a timely manner. Graduates do not have to participate in Commencement to officially graduate from the law school or to have Final Law School Certificates processed.
