Supreme court justice to speak at Belmont
June 19, 2013 14:57 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Belmont University College of Law has announced that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito will speak at the school's first graduation next year.
Law school Dean Jeff Kinsler said Wednesday it will be an especially great honor to have the justice address Belmont's initial law graduates. The commencement is scheduled for May 10, 2014. The college anticipates about 120 graduates completing the three-year program.
Belmont announced last week that the American Bar Association has granted its law school provisional accreditation. New schools must have two years of provisional accreditation before being granted full accreditation, but graduates are entitled to the same recognition.
