The class of alumni at North­eastern University’s School of Law will grow by more than 240 on Friday after­noon, when the school will hold its 2014 com­mence­ment exer­cises at Matthews Arena.

Uni­ver­sity leaders, fac­ulty, staff, family, and friends will join in cel­e­brating the Class of 2014 at com­mence­ment, which will begin at 1 p.m. and be streamed live.

Kennedy joined Harvard’s fac­ulty in 1984 and teaches courses in con­tracts, crim­inal law, and the reg­u­la­tion of race rela­tions. He is not only a leading com­menter on issues of race and crime but also inter­ra­cial mar­riage, inter­ra­cial adop­tion, con­sti­tu­tional law, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Law school dean Jeremy R. Paul will pre­side over the cer­e­mony and Stephen W. Director, provost and senior vice pres­i­dent for aca­d­emic affairs, will confer the degrees and deliver the charge to the grad­u­ates. The Hon­or­able Isaac Boren­stein ’75 will deliver the fac­ulty address.
