The University of San Francisco School of Law is celebrating its 100th birthday all year this year and the celebration will begin with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. delivering a keynote address during the school’s convocation this Wednesday, September 19. The convocation is being held at 5 p.m. at the St. Ignatius Church on the school’s campus. Kennedy is a professor at Pace University. He teaches environmental law. He also works as the school’s co-director of the Environmental Litigation Clinic.

“Our centennial celebration is about far more than longevity,” said Jeffrey Brand, dean of the USF School of Law. “It’s about one hundred years of offering an education with a conscience, and graduating top attorneys who empower the powerless and help change a world plagued by injustice. As we begin our second century in this magnificent city, we rededicate ourselves to our vital mission of educating for justice.”
