The original bad-ass herself Judge Judith Sheindlin, a.k.a "Judge Judy," will deliver the undergraduate keynote address at University at Albany’s 2012 Commencement Ceremony.

An estimated 2,800 students are expected to graduate at the 168th Commencement ceremonies. Sheindlin is no stranger to the University at Albany campus. Her son and two stepsons earned bachelor’s degrees from UAlbany in the 1980’s and went on to pursue careers in law and medicine. During their time at UAlbany, Sheindlin served on UAlbany’s Parents’ Council.

“I look forward to returning to Albany to address the Class of 2012. As a parent of three University at Albany graduates, I can assure the graduating class their UAlbany education will provide a strong foundation for success.”

I really hope when she walks in the room, someone announces "ALL RISE FOR JUDGE JUDITH SHEINDLIN!"

And what's a story about Judge Judy without an SNL skit?
