Loyola Law School administrators announced Monday that U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) will give the commencement address at the 77th annual ceremonies May 17.
Kerry is serving his third term as senator and is a member of several committees, including banking, housing, urban affairs, commerce, science and transportation, foreign relations, small business, and intelligence.
He has introduced several pieces of legislation, including a "Two Strikes and You're Out" bill aimed at protecting children from sexual predators.
Nearly 400 students will participate in the ceremony--the largest number of future attorneys from any California law school, officials said. About 7,000 guests are expected to attend the ceremony.
