Current U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is set to speak at the UC Berkeley School of Law commencement ceremony Saturday, according to a press release Tuesday.
Holder has served as U.S. Attorney General in the Obama administration since February 2009 and is the first African American to hold the post. Holder earned his undergraduate degree at Columbia University in 1973 and his law degree from Columbia Law School in 1976.
Last year, California Attorney General Kamala Harris was the keynote speaker at Berkeley Law’s commencement. Holder has previously spoken at commencement ceremonies for the University of Virginia School of Law in 2011 and Harvard Law School in 2012.
