Colorado Supreme Court Justice Brian Boatright will deliver the address at the May 19 Commencement ceremonies for the Sturm College of Law.

Boatright, a 1988 DU law graduate, was appointed to the Supreme Court by Gov. John Hickenlooper. He was sworn in on Nov. 21.

I am certain we will find his words both inspirational and motivational.”
