NYLS Commencement Through the Years

Congratulations to the graduating class of 2012!  May 21st will mark New York Law School’s 120th Commencement Exercises.  This year’s ceremony will be held at Radio City Music Hall.  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 is always fun to view this slice of our history by looking back at the Law School’s Commencement Exercises Programs.  The Library has created an exhibit of Commencement Programs spanning three centuries!  We invite you to take a quick break and walk by the display case in the Library’s Rare Book Room (L302) to see Programs from 1894, 1899, 1900, 1903, 1906, 1925, 1933, 1975, 1985, 1995, 2005 and more . . . .
