Wake Forest University School of Law to confer hoods on the largest class of international graduates on May 18-19

The Wake Forest University School of Law will confer hoods on its largest class of international graduates on May 18-19, 2014.

The Hooding Program is scheduled to begin at 1:45 p.m. on Sunday, May 18, in Wait Chapel. Thirty international Master of Laws in American Law degree (LLM) candidates, Juris Doctor (JD) candidates, and Master of Studies in Law (MSL) candidates will receive hoods. That is compared to 24 international graduates in 2013, which included the law school’s first Scientiae Juridicae Doctors (S.J.D.).

In another first for the law school in 120 years, the Hooding Program will be webcast live via the Internet so that family and friends of the graduates who are unable to attend in person can view the ceremony. The Livestream link is http://new.livestream.com/wfu/2014law . The law school is the first WFU graduate school to offer a live webcast of its Hooding Ceremony in the history of the university. Viewers of the Livestream may refer to the Hooding program in PDF on the Wake Forest University website here. Continue reading »
