Retired California Supreme Court Justice to Be Commencement Speaker for School of Law

Carlos Moreno, the recently retired California Supreme Court justice known for his thoughtful opinions and centrist appeal, will address graduating students at Santa Clara University School of Law’s 2011 commencement ceremony on May 21. The commencement is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. in the University’s Mission Gardens.
 
Moreno, 62, is currently of counsel with the Los Angeles firm of Irell & Manella. He is well known for his leadership in the California Blue Ribbon Commission on Children in Foster Care, which led to improvements in the state foster-care system, and for many landmark state decisions on issues ranging from gun control to same-sex marriage to class actions.
 
“We are extremely pleased that Justice Moreno has accepted our invitation,” said Donald J. Polden, dean of Santa Clara University’s School of Law. “As an exceptional lawyer and a judge at almost every level of the judiciary, he has shown that respect for the law and compassion for those most in need can coexist. Those are the values we hope our graduates take with them into their careers as well.” Read more
