took the corresponding legal oath

This refers to the graduation ceremony, which, in some post-graduate faculties with not many students (only a few graduate each year), takes place around a table with a Bible upon it; the Dean, in the presence of the Rector, confers the mortarboard upon each of the new graduates and afterwards they pronounce the formula of the oath all together.

Pledged legal oath

Es en mi opinión la mejor traducción, a pesar que también se puede utilizar: "Took corresponding legal oath".

Hope it helps
