Belmont Law Dean Alberto Gonzales visited Notre Dame Law School April 8 and spoke about a wide variety of topics — from his upbringing in Humble, Texas, to his work in President George W. Bush’s administration.

“I encourage all of you to pursue public service, but go into it with your eyes open and your armor on,” Gonzales told the law students. “The higher you go, the more influential or powerful you are perceived to be, the more you are going to be criticized… But it’s worth it. I wouldn’t trade it for a second.”

Professor Bill Kelley, who served in the White House as deputy counsel to the president from 2005 to 2007, led the discussion.
