NYCU School of Law held its internal commencement ceremony for 54 graduates on June 11, 2022, on the Chiao Tung campus of National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University. This is the first fully in-person ceremony since the pandemic started.

To celebrate the accomplishments of the graduates, the commencement committee invited Mr. Chia-lung Lin, incumbent Ambassador-at-large and former minister for Transportation and Communications, to give a speech. Although the Ambassador couldn’t make an in-person appearance due to his busy schedule, he pre-recorded his blessing video.

To give graduates the most precious memories, the artistic team designed four photo areas where graduates could take photos with their classmates, families, and friends. The commencement ended with a heartwarming group photo of all the graduates and professors. Congratulations to the class of 2022!
