Each graduating candidate is eligible to request up to four guest tickets when they RSVP to attend the Law School Convocation at The Beacon Theatre.

It is strictly forbidden to sell or buy tickets. Convocation tickets are not personal property, have no monetary value, and cannot be transferred, purchased or sold.  The sale of tickets falls outside the scope of the agreement signed between The Beacon Theatre and NYU School of Law and is likewise prohibited by law.  They are given to you solely for the purpose of allowing your family and friends to attend.  The Law School will consider any solicitation of tickets a violation of school policy and will take the appropriate action if any such transactions come to its attention. All unwanted tickets are to be returned to the Office of Student Affairs.

Students who miss the ticket request deadline and would like to participate in Convocation will not be guaranteed four guest tickets.  Please contact the Office of Student Affairs at (212) 998-6658 or
