Spring 2020 Commencement

Spring 2020 Commencement

Meet the spring graduating class Congratulations video A Message from Dean Toben A Message from Professor Fraley Families First Coronavirus Act CLE

Covid-19, with its shelter-in-place and social distancing protocols, will not rain on our parade today.

We are celebrating – virtually – our Spring 2020 Baylor Law graduating class. We send our newly minted Baylor Lawyers (remember, always with a capital “B” and a capital “L” – it’s not just a descriptor – it’s a brand!) forward into service in life and in the profession with the assurance of the prophet Jeremiah:


“I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

When circumstances change, rest assured that we will be having a traditional in-person commencement for our graduates and will celebrate with all the pomp and circumstance that graduation from Baylor Law merits.

In the meantime, we mark this special day virtually and celebrate each and every one of our Spring Baylor Law graduates! Congratulations!
