Abstract: Let $\mathcal{O}_1$ and $\mathcal{O}_2$ be adjoint nilpotent orbits in a real semisimple Lie algebra. Write $\mathcal{O}_1\geq\mathcal{O}_2$ if $\mathcal{O}_2$ is contained in the closure of $\mathcal{O}_1.$ This defines a partial order on the set of such orbits, known as the closure ordering. We determine this order for the split real form EV of $E_7.$
