Former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani will address the first class of lawyers to graduate from Drexel University's law school. Giuliani will speak to about 160 graduates and their supporters at a ceremony in Philadelphia on May 27. He will also receive an honorary degree.

Giuliani has been a candidate for Senate and the Republican presidential nomination. He currently heads a New York-based consulting firm.

Drexel opened its law school in fall 2006. Its creation was spearheaded by Constantine Papadakis, the longtime Drexel president who died last month.

The school has since been named for alumnus and philanthropist Earle Mack.
