One of the country’s most powerful political leaders will deliver the commencement address for the UC Davis Law School’s graduating class of 2013.
Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader of the U.S. House of Representatives, will speak at the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts on Friday, May 17, at 4 p.m. Pelosi was the speaker of the House from 2007 to 2011 and remains the only woman in American history to have held that post.
“I am delighted that Leader Pelosi has agreed to give the commencement address,” said Kevin R. Johnson, dean of UC Davis School of Law, in a press release. “Our graduates will benefit greatly from hearing her perspective as a groundbreaking leader on the national stage.”
