C-SPAN to tape, televise Campbell Law commencement address

Law - RosensteinRALEIGH — C-SPAN will tape and later televise United States Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s commencement address at Campbell Law School’s 40th annual hooding and graduation ceremony on Friday, May 11. The remarks will air later as a part of C-SPAN’s annual commencement address package.

“We’re delighted to share Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s commencement address with a national audience,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “I want to thank C-SPAN for working with us on this special occasion, as well as the talented and hardworking Memorial Auditorium staff for making this possible.”

C-SPAN is available in nearly 100 million cable and satellite households across the U.S. and online at c-span.org. Created in 1979 by the cable television industry as a public service, C-SPAN covers live gavel-to-gavel proceedings of the U.S. Congress during session across its three channels, as well as live and taped events related to public affairs.

President Donald J. Trump nominated Rosenstein in January of last year, and the Senate confirmed his nomination 94-6 the following April. Rosenstein was sworn in as the nation’s 37th Deputy Attorney General later that month by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. As the Deputy Attorney General, Rosenstein oversees the day-to-day operations of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Campbell Law’s graduation will be held at Memorial Auditorium at Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh. The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. and is a ticketed event.
