Chapel Hill, N.C. — U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will deliver the commencement address for the University of North Carolina School of Law on May 12, officials said Monday.
Holder, the first African-American attorney general, was chosen by a committee of law students from the graduating class. Michael Mukasey, who served as attorney general under President George W. Bush from 2007 to 2009, spoke at the school's 2009 commencement.
Holder previously was a litigation partner at Covington & Burling LLP in Washington. From 1997 to 2001, he served under President Bill Clinton as the deputy attorney general.
