Vernon Jordan

The John and Terry Levin Center for Public Service and Public Interest Law at Stanford Law School has awarded the National Public Service Award to Vernon E. Jordan, Jr. for his lifetime of public service.

The National Public Service Award is designated for an attorney whose public service work has had broad, national impact. “Vernon Jordan’s career reflects Stanford Law’s fundamental and underlying values – that public service must be a central part of any lawyer’s life,” said Larry Kramer, Richard E. Lang Professor of Law and Dean.

“He is a role model for our students as someone who has integrated a powerful, lifetime commitment to equality into a remarkably diverse legal career.”
