College of Law to hold commencement May 11

The University of Toledo College of Law commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 11 will recognize those 125 candidates eligible for law degrees in December 2013, May 2014, and August 2014. The event begins at 1 p.m. in the Student Union Auditorium.

Rebecca House, the class valedictorian, and Joelynn Laux, the immediate past president of the Student Bar Association, will address their peers during the event.

A. Louis Denton, the president and chief executive officer of the Philadelphia investment management firm Borer Denton & Associates, Inc. and senior vice president of Petersen Investments, will deliver the commencement address.

Denton is a 1983 graduate of the College of Law. He received his A.B. in business and economics from Franklin & Marshall College. He is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar and is a past president of the Philadelphia Securities Association. He is an arbitrator with the Philadelphia Common Pleas Court and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). He regularly speaks at Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association events, FINRA conferences, and preventative compliance meetings.

“Continuing the tradition of highlighting the variety of paths our graduates have taken to success, this year’s speaker represents one of the many professions to which our law degree opens the door,” said Daniel J. Steinbock, dean of the College of Law. “An incredibly generous alumnus, Lou Denton has not forgotten where he got started.”

Denton’s generous financial support has allowed the College of Law to create the Denton Leadership and Service Scholarships, scholarships that help the school attract outstanding students. In 2010 the UT College of Law dedicated its largest classroom in recognition of Denton’s support.

A reception at the Law Center will immediately follow the commencement ceremony.
