Rain Plan

In the event that the rain plan is called, we will notify graduates through Message Me as soon as the rain plan is called.

May can be a rainy month in Cambridge. Please be aware that all activities during Commencement occur outdoors. Activities will be moved indoors only in the event of extreme or severe weather.

While we hope that we do not have to use this rain program, we encourage you to check the weather in advance of the ceremonies and bring umbrellas if the weather looks threatening. In the event of rain, we will distribute rain ponchos from the Information Booth and open the Law School classrooms for those who prefer to view a televised broadcast of the ceremony indoors. In the event of severe weather, the University ceremonies will remain outdoors but the Law School ceremony will move indoors as detailed in the Rain Plan.

If the Rain Plan is in effect, you will be notified by signs posted around the Law School campus and at the Information Booth. Commencement staff will be around the campus to disseminate information.
