The commencement speaker at Ave Maria Law school, a tiny, extremely conservative law school started in Ann Arbor by Domino’s pizza mogul Tom Monaghan will be U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Meanwhile, we at the University of Michigan will hear from the founder of Automotive Magazine, David E. Davis.

“ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas will address Ave Maria School of Law graduates at this spring’s commencement, the school announced Wednesday.

The 56 members of Ave Maria’s second graduating class will participate in the May 16 ceremony in Ypsilanti. Thomas also will receive an honorary degree. […]

The conservative Catholic law school opened in the fall of 2000. Sixty graduates took the July 2003 bar exam in 17 states and achieved a 93 percent pass rate, school officials said.”
