Justice Alito to be PFIC's 2017 Commencement Speaker

The Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception is pleased to announce that the Honorable Samuel Anthony Alito, Jr., Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, will be the speaker at our Commencement ceremonies on May 12, 2017. We are honored that the Justice will address our faculty and graduates in this, our 75th anniversary as a Pontifical Faculty.

At commencement, Justice Alito will be presented with the Saint Dominic Medal. The medal is awarded to those individuals who, through demonstrated competency in their life’s work, have advanced the ideals of the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception, thus, bringing honor and recognition to the charism of the Dominican Order. As a man dedicated to universal truth in the adjudication of civic law, Justice Alito has demonstrated the timeless principles preached by the Dominican Order since its inception.

Justice Alito was born in Trenton, New Jersey. He is married to Martha-Ann (née Bomgardner) and has two children. He served as a law clerk for Leonard I. Garth of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. He was Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of New Jersey; Assistant to the Solicitor General, U.S. Department of Justice; Deputy Assistant Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice; and U.S. Attorney, District of New Jersey. He was appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in 1990. President George W. Bush nominated him as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, and he took his seat on January 31, 2006.

Due to limited space, attendance at Commencement is by invitation only.
