Law school graduation ceremonies in the age of COVID are a lot different than usual, but Above the Law would like to get back to tracking the speakers at law school commencements around the country. There will be some in-person ceremonies this year, though more folks are still going to have to work with virtual gatherings to celebrate the end of their schooling.
We know some speakers, but we’re not clairvoyant. We need your help filling out this list. Hit us up at [email protected] and tell us who’s speaking at your graduation. We’ll update the list accordingly.
