Thomas Griffith, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and former General Counsel at BYU, will speak Tuesday, March 14, at 11:05 a.m. in the Marriott Center for a campus devotional.

It will be broadcast live on the KBYU networks. Rebroadcast information is available at byubroadcasting.org.

A BYU alumnus, Griffith received his juris doctorate from the University of Virginia in 1985, where he was an editor of the Virginia Law Review.

Griffith served from 1995 to 1999 as Senate Legal Counsel, the chief legal officer of the U.S. Senate. In that post, he represented the Senate, its committees, members, officers and employees in litigation relating to their constitutional powers and privileges, including the Line Item Veto litigation that led to two landmark Supreme Court decisions.

He also advised Senate committees about their investigatory powers and procedures, and he represented the institutional interests of the Senate during the impeachment trial of President Clinton as well as the Senate's investigations into the Whitewater, campaign finance and China technology transfer matters.

Before coming to BYU, he was a partner in the Washington, D.C., law firm of Wiley, Rein and Fielding, specializing in government affairs, litigation and Internet law.
