Kent State Holds Summer Commencement Ceremonies on Aug. 18
The baccalaureate degree Commencement ceremony will begin at 9:30 a.m. The speaker for this ceremony is Kent State alumnus Daniel L. Brockett, partner and chair of Quinn Emanuel’s Financial Institution Litigation practice. Mr. Brockett earned his Bachelor of Arts in philosophy from Kent State in 1979. He later went on to earn his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Pittsburgh. Mr. Brockett has recovered billions for major institutional clients in federal securities, antitrust and other suits against major Wall Street banks and other defendants. He is particularly known for his work in the plaintiff antitrust, securities and commodities space, and he was recently chosen by judges as co-lead counsel in an array of precedent-setting cases, including the credit default swaps antitrust case, the gold antitrust and commodity manipulation case, the ISDAfix interest rate benchmark case and the U.S. Treasuries antitrust litigation. His work has won him extensive media attention, and he has been interviewed by and featured on a variety of national news shows and in legal media publications, including CNBC, Reuters, Bloomberg, Risk Magazine and the American Lawyer. He was recently ranked by Benchmark Litigation as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America for 2018.
