CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A top federal appellate judge is speaking to new graduates of the Charleston School of Law.

The school says 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge William B. Traxler Jr. is the commencement speaker at Saturday's graduation.

Traxler has been chief judge since 2009. He became a federal judge in 1992 and was appointed by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to chair the Executive Committee of the Judicial Conference of the United States, the principal policy-making body for the administration of federal courts.

The Greenville native is 1 of 3 people receiving honorary degrees during the ceremony. Also being honored are longtime law professor Ralph C. McCullough II and former Columbia Mayor Patton Adams, who now heads up the South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense.
