After sending your guests a summons to appear, they're sure to show up to your law school graduation party! Once they arrive, make sure to have a sign in table waiting and ready so guests can leave words of encouragement and advice to the new lawyer. For a recent grad party, I mounted one of our graduation law school subpoena invitations in a white signable matte and put a black permanent marker close by so family and friends could leave well wishes. After the party, I had the invitation framed as a memento and gifted it to graduate.
Check out six more sign-in table ideas - they're all great ways to create lasting memories for your graduate:
- Graduation Law School Sign In Board: Choose from a variety of colors to match your party's color scheme - just set it on an easel at your party's entrance, and it's easy for guests to leave a note to the guest of honor.
- Wishing Tree: Arrange branches in a tall vase and string pieces of cardstock with ribbon. Ask guests to write down a wish for the grad and hang it on the wishing tree.
- Photo Book: Create a photo book with pictures from the grad's years at law school, and have guests sign it like a yearbook. Everyone will enjoy leafing through the book during the party, and it makes an excellent gift for the grad.
- University T-Shirt: Buy a tshirt from the grad's law school and have it signed by all of their friends and family. Have it framed in a shadow box to hang in their office!
- Jenga: Have each guest leave some advice on a Jenga block. Make sure to have a sign nearby asking guests to "Build Memories: Sign a Jenga piece with some advice for the new grad!"
- Brief Case Notes: One of the traditional law school graduation gifts is a brief case. Have the grad's brief case sitting on the sign in table and ask family and friends write words of encouragement to slip inside. The grad can take a look at them on his or her first day of work!
