Virginia Attorney General to Speak at Mason Law
In keeping with the George Mason tradition of inviting the Attorney General of Virginia to speak, the School of Law announces that Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II ('95) will speak on Tuesday, March 23, 2010, at 5:00 p.m. in Room 121 to Mason law students, faculty, and staff. Seating for the event will be limited, and admission will require a valid Mason Law ID.
Prior to his election as attorney general, Cuccinelli served in the State Senate of Virginia from August 2002 until January 2010. While holding that office, Cuccinelli served the citizens of Virginia as a member of the Courts of Justice Committee; the Transportation Committee; the Local Government Committee; the Rehabilitation and Social Services Committee; and the Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources Committee.
As a state senator and a private attorney, Cuccinelli worked to improve the Commonwealth's mental health system and served under two governors from 1994-99 on the Virginia Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Advisory Commission, as chairman for two of those years.
In addition to the law degree he was awarded by Mason Law in 1995, Cuccinelli earned a master's degree in International Commerce and Policy from George Mason University and a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Virginia.
