In Focus: UW Law Celebrates Spring 2022 Graduates

University of Wisconsin Law School honored the spring 2022 graduates during an in-person Hooding Ceremony on May 13, at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center Exhibition Hall in Madison. During the ceremony—a special recognition for students receiving law degrees—faculty members place the hood over the head of graduates to signify their success in completing their law degree. Approximately 250 graduates were hooded during the event, and more than 2,000 family members, friends, and faculty attended in person.

The event was also livestreamed to a virtual audience. Professor Heinz Klug and students Elise Ashley, Etiosa Ojomo, and Von Dickens Abero Ulsa were the speakers for the ceremony. They were joined by keynote speaker Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Frank Dallet in addressing Law School graduates, family, and friends during the event.
