Graduating from law school is a big accomplishment, so you no doubt want to commemorate the event with an appropriate gift. Good lawyer graduation gifts are things that will help send the new lawyer out into the working world, such as things for her new office and gifts that encourage networking. Choose a gift that represents the right sentiment and fits your budget.

Desk Sets

At his office, a new lawyer will need many things to help with work. A desk set could include a nice pen, a desk clock, a planning calendar and a paperweight, though it doesn't necessarily need to include everything listed. When you purchase this as a set, it means that everything will have a uniform look, which can look very professional.

Personalised Items

Choose an item that is personalised with the new lawyer's initials. This could be anything from cuff links to a coffee mug. The gift doesn't even have to be something that she'll use in her work--it can be related to her favourite hobby. The great thing about personalised items is that you can choose an item that fits your budget.


If the lawyer is graduating, but hasn't yet passed the bar exam, you could purchase books to help study for the bar exam. Another idea for a book is one that describes career alternatives for those possessing a law degree--not every lawyer wants to defend clients in the courtroom. This type of book can help open his mind to the other options.

Association Membership

Once a new lawyer becomes eligible to practice law by passing the bar exam, she is eligible to join the American Bar Association and any local or state bars. Membership offers opportunities for networking and additional training, which can be important for new lawyers, but when faced with the cost of repaying loans from law school, membership seems expensive. You can pay for the membership as a gift.

Alma Mater Goods

Your new lawyer is probably proud of the law school that he attended. You can remind him of the old days by purchasing items that have the alma mater logo, such as sweatshirts, coffee mugs and desk sets.

Diploma Frame

Many lawyers like to frame their diploma to hang in their office. Look for a nice frame that he can use to display it. If you want to splurge, hire a professional framer to create a custom frame.
