MC Law officials will follow all Centers for Disease Control health guidelines. The 10 a.m. ceremony that Friday won’t be open to the public. It is a ticketed event. Physical distancing will be followed. Masks are required for all visitors. “We will follow COVID-19 protocols,” says MC Law Dean Patricia Bennett.

The event will be live-streamed for family and friends to see.
