Retired U.S. Supreme Court clerk Gen. William Suter will deliver the University of Dayton School of Law's 2014 commencement address.

Suter retired last August after serving 22 years in the position, which is responsible for maintaining the dockets and records of the Court. 

He has more than 50 years of service to the United States. Before becoming U.S. Supreme Court clerk in 1991, Suter was a career Army judge advocate, retiring as a major general. He served in numerous positions around the world, including appellate judge, deputy staff judge advocate of the U.S. Army in Vietnam, staff judge advocate of the 101st Airborne Division, commandant of the JAG School and assistant judge advocate general of the Army.

"It is an honor to have Gen. Suter speak to our graduates," University of Dayton School of Law Dean Paul McGreal said. "We look forward to Gen. Suter sharing his knowledge and experience, especially from his time with the U.S. Supreme Court, with our students."

Suter may have other appearances with law faculty, staff and students on campus, depending on his schedule. 

The School of Law's commencement ceremony will take place May 3 at University of Dayton Arena.
