Commencement Speaker: Me?

Got a call yesterday from the Dean of my law school, who was calling to let me know that the student committee responsible for picking a commencement speaker had asked to invite me. I’m more than a little blown away by this: it’s an incredible honor, but it’s also daunting (to say the least).

So while I give the Law School a day to figure out that they’ve made a terrible mistake, I’m genuinely interested (particularly from the lawyers who drop by here from time to time): what would you tell a graduating class of lawyers if you had the chance?
