BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Marc H. Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League, will deliver the 2015 LSU Law Center Commencement address on Friday, May 29, at the LSU Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

LSU Law Center Chancellor Jack M. Weiss says Morial plays an important role on the national scene while retaining deep ties to the state. Weiss also notes Morial’s special connection to the law center as the son of Ernest N. “Dutch” Morial, the school’s first black graduate.

A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in economics and African American Studies, Marc Morial also holds a law degree from the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C., as well as numerous honorary degrees, including Xavier University and Howard University.

The commencement ceremony will begin at 9:30 a.m.
