168th Commencement: Watch Live
Albany Law School today announced that Megyn Kelly — alumna and NBC News anchor — will be returning to campus for a signing of her book, “Settle for More,” on Thursday, March 9.
The book signing, which is open to the public, will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the law school’s gymnasium.
Before the public signing, she will spend time speaking with Albany Law's students.
Kelly graduated cum laude from Albany Law School in 1995 and received an Alumni Achievement Award while visiting campus for her 15th class reunion. She
delivered Albany Law’s commencement keynote in May 2016.
“There is no way I would have achieved what I have achieved without my Albany Law School education and degree,” Kelly told the graduating class last spring. “Everything I’ve accomplished in my professional life started right here.”
Kelly wrote about her Albany Law School experience in “Settle for More.” She described her experience as an editor for the Albany Law Review and spent several pages talking about her fond memories competing in moot court, where she won the Best Individual Advocate Award.
“Between writing onto the Law Review and making the trial team, I was feeling increasingly confident in my skills as a potential lawyer, a feeling that only got stronger once I actually started competing in moot court,” she wrote. “To this day my moot court experiences in law school are among my best memories.”
Kelly recently joined NBC News in a major role, which will include anchoring a new daytime news program and a Sunday evening news magazine show. She previously hosted the prime-time television show "The Kelly File" on Fox News Channel. Kelly joined Fox News in 2004, initially working as a correspondent after beginning her television career at ABC affiliate WJLA-TV in Washington, D.C. She was named one of TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world in 2014.
Prior to her career in journalism, Kelly served as an associate with Bickel & Brewer in Chicago and was a corporate litigator at Jones Day in New York, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
