Commencement 2017

Severe Weather Plan – School of Law

The University ceremony will remain in the Brookings Quadrangle even during heavy rain and inclement weather. In the event of severe weather, you will need to follow the instructions below. Information is subject to changes.

The instructions below apply only if the Commencement Committee activates the Severe Weather Plan.

If Washington University adopts the Severe Weather plan at 7 a.m. on Friday, the University-wide Ceremony will convert to an undergraduate only ceremony. Due to space constraints, Law School Students and their guests will not attend.

Law Students will be notified if the Severe Weather plan goes into effect via, the Law School homepage on the website and digital signage in the law school building (AB Hall). Law Students and their guests may also check the Washington University homepage and listen to local TV and radio news broadcasts.

In the event of severe weather, the law school class photos will be rescheduled for 11:30 a.m. and JD, LLM, JSD, & MJS graduates will proceed to Anheuser-Busch Hall, Crowder Courtyard for a indoor photo.

If the University Ceremony is changed to an undergraduate only ceremony, the Law School Recognition Ceremony will begin at 1:00 p.m. in the WUSTL Athletics Complex, Varsity Gym. Please consult the law school home page for any updates concerning time changes.
