U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales
at ND Law           


Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales visited Notre Dame Law School on 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 said. "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."
