Academic Attire


In order to walk in the events that take place on Commencement Day, all graduates must be in academic regalia.

Students should not wear regalia to the activities that take place on Class Day and are welcome to dress comfortably for the Class Day events, as they are scheduled to take place outside.  In past years both graduating students and guests have opted for business casual attire, keeping in mind that the majority of the activities take place on the fields.

Graduates are advised to check in on the weather that is anticipated for both May 23rd and 24th, as this may influence their choice of attire.

How To Rent Regalia: 

Go to the Harvard Law COOP to place your order. Go to the HLS COOP on the first floor of the WCC. The order deadline is April 4th. The Coop’s hours are Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. While it is highly recommended that students order regalia at the COOP, if you cannot visit the store to place your order, you may reserve your regalia by dropping off/mailing or faxing this form.
