Graduation Regalia

It is the tradition of Duquesne University as well as proper etiquette for ALL graduates to wear only the approved Duquesne University School of Law J.D. hood and cords as provided by Duquesne University's approved vendor, Herff Jones Inc.  Graduates may not wear a hood or cords from any other organization or school.

While the official colors of Duquesne University are blue and red, black and purple are the main colors you will see at Duquesne University School of Law's commencement ceremony. Purple is the color of law. Graduates' tams and robes are black with a hood that is purple and black on one side and blue and red on the other.

*Please note that regalia purchasing and hood rental dates have been postponed until we have more details on an in-person graduation ceremony.

Some 2020 graduates have asked to be able to order their regalia now for photo shoots.  You may do so online at
