Allow me to thanks the Board of Trustees for conferring on me this honorary Doctorate of Laws. I am deeply honored with this award bestowed by my own alma mater. And I am of course extremely pleased to address the Class of 2009 this morning.

I welcome this privilege to give you, the Class of 2009, some parting advice before you receive your diplomas and walk out of the gates of this University. As a life-long student of law, I can tell you about your rights as citizens of our country. But this morning, I will tell you about your civic duties.
