Celebrating the class of 2020

Wayne Law held a virtual graduation celebration on Monday, May 11 in honor of the class of 2020.
 
Congratulations, graduates — you did it! While we look forward to recognizing you at a formal commencement ceremony when it is safe and practical to do so, we couldn't let today's milestone pass without celebration. Here you'll find all of the different ways we're celebrating you!

A virtual congratulations

Since we couldn't be together in person, some of us gathered together virtually to send our best wishes. You can also read messages from faculty, staff and alumni, here


See you on social!

We spent all day on May 11 posting on social media and celebrating our grads! You can catch a glimpse of the party by searing #WayneLaw2020 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
