Academic Dress and Photography

Academic Dress

All Graduands attending a ceremony are required to wear academic dress, which includes a gown, hood and mortarboard.

The University of Law uses a third party graduation supplier through which your gown must be hired.

You will receive an email from The University of Law when the booking portal opens detailing how to order your academic dress and photography.

Ordering your Gown

Gown orders will be available from 12:00pm on Wednesday 16th February 2022 until 11:45pm on Sunday 13th March.

All orders for gowns can be done online or over the telephone. Contact details will be included in the email. 

When ordering, please be prepared with your head circumference, chest and height measurements, and your credit/debit card details.

If you miss the deadline for gowning you can hire one on the day of graduation, but this will be at an enhanced rate and subject to availability.

Collecting your Gown

Gowning will take place at the venue before the ceremony. Please see the ceremony schedule for your allocated time.

You must return your gown at the end of the ceremony unless you have paid for additional hire.

Dress Code

As a Graduand, you should arrive in smart dress – we recommend to bring a brooch or pin to secure your hood to your garment.

As this is a formal celebration, we ask that guests dress accordingly, in smart attire. Casual clothing such as jeans, trainers and t-shirts are not suitable for this event.

Photography

Official photography will be available on the day. Photographs may be ordered on the same website from which you order your gown, or you can order them on the day of your ceremony from the photography sales desk. Please note that availability may be limited on the day.

Photography orders will be available from 12:00pm on Wednesday 16th February 2022 until 11:45pm on Sunday 13th March.

Please note the use of flash photography is not permitted during the ceremony.
