U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein is to deliver the keynote address at the University of Baltimore School of Law’s commencement ceremony on May 13, the law school announced Tuesday.
Rosenstein, former U.S. attorney for the District of Maryland, assumed his current position in April 2017. After the recusal of then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the firing of FBI Director James Comey, Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III as special counsel to investigate possible ties between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, among other matters.
Rosenstein was nominated in May 2005 by President George W. Bush to serve as U.S. attorney for the District of Maryland. He was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate and held the post until 2017, when he was named deputy attorney general.
The UB School of Law commencement will take place at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric Theatre in Baltimore.
