NSL 2023 Commencement Ceremony

Congratulations on your accomplishments so far. As you have overcome far more challenges than are typical for a law school student, Nashville School of Law is pleased to announce the celebration of your class’s graduation with an in-person ceremony on Saturday, May 27.


The ceremony will be Saturday, May 27, 2023, at Renaissance Nashville Hotel, 611 Commerce St, Nashville, TN 37203. The ceremony will start at 11 a.m. and last approximately one hour. There is no limit on attendance.  Parking is available in lots and garages near the hotel. 

The ceremony will take place in the Renaissance Ballroom.  In order to stay on schedule, please plan to arrive no later than 10:00 a.m.   The seating for family and friends is first-come, first-served.  The faculty and the graduating class will line up for the procession at 10:30 a.m.  A photographer and a videographer will be present before, during, and after the ceremony.

Please come to the lobby outside the ballroom – with your tam, gown, and hood – and we will direct you to your gathering location.

If you do NOT plan to participate in the graduation ceremony, please let Beth McDonald know.  (Beth.Mcdonald@nsl.law)
