Larry Tribe Will Be Our Commencement Speaker

Looks like we're giving Larry Tribe an honorary degree and he's speaking to our grads:

Laurence H. Tribe is the Carl M. Loeb University Professor at Harvard Law School. He is widely recognized as a liberal scholar of constitutional law and a practitioner before the U.S. Supreme Court. He clerked for Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart from 1967-1968 and became an assistant professor of law at Harvard in 1968, where has taught ever since. He is the author of American Constitutional Law (1978), a treatise in that field, and has argued before the Supreme Court more than 30 times. He taught President Obama at Harvard Law School. He is currently on leave from Harvard to fulfill his new duties as senior counselor for access to justice at the U.S. Justice Department. In that position, Tribe will develop ways to improve legal services for the poor, find alternatives to court-intensive litigation, and strengthen the fairness and independence of domestic courts. He will receive an honorary Doctor of Laws and will speak to graduates at the School of Law commencement exercise on Sunday, May 16 at 2 p.m..
