Some of the top program ceremonies he has spoken at have been at the University of California Berkeley School of Law, Harvard Law School, and Columbia Law School. The other three schools were Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Pace Law School, and Fordham Law School. The latest graduation ceremony that Bharara has addressed was today at the New York University School of Law.

Bharara is not only an excellent speaker, he is able to give a personal touch in each graduation speech. As a graduate of Harvard College, he addressed them by poking fun at other alums, “I arrived last evening, stopped by the Business School, dropped off some subpoenas, arrested a couple of guys for insider trading, and finished off the night sipping a scorpion bowl at the Kong.” The Kong is a popular Hong Kong restaurant in Harvard Square. The subpoenas and arrests were referring to HBS alum Rajat Gupta and others.

During his address to Columbia, where he also received his law degree, Bharara advised the graduates to choose to be a courageous leader that acts with integrity and an independent mind.

His office is also responsible for prosecuting nearly 100 Wall Street executives for things such as insider trading and other financial fraud charges.
