An early congratulations to the graduating class of 2013! May 19th will mark New York Law School’s 121st Commencement Exercises. This year’s ceremony will be held at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center. Did you know that in 1899 the graduation ceremony was held at Carnegie Hall?
Commencement ceremonies give us time to celebrate our new graduates and time to honor all the Law School’s previous graduates. It’s always fun to view this slice of our history by looking back at our Commencement Exercises Programs. The Library has created two exhibits of NYLS Commencement Programs spanning three centuries! We invite you to take a quick break and visit both if you can!
- In the Library’s Rare Book Room display case (L302) you’ll find programs from 1894, 1900, 1904, 1912, 1950, 1961 and more . . . .
- In the display case outside the Matasar Commons on W2 (on the way to the Event Center) you’ll find programs from 1899, 1913, 1975, 1991 and more . . . .
Enjoy the Law School’s rich history!
