Jeffrey White Nominated for U.S. District Court Bench
Lecturer Jeffrey S. White has been nominated by President Bush to the federal bench. If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, he will serve as a judge on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
White has taught a course in civil trial advocacy at Boalt Hall for more than 20 years and has won the Roscoe Pound Foundation award for Excellence in Teaching Trial Advocacy. He is also a litigation partner at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe in San Francisco.
"Jeff has been an outstanding teacher and mentor to students at Boalt for decades," says Dean John P. Dwyer '80. "Jeff's nomination recognizes his impressive legal career, and I believe he would make an excellent federal judge. We are proud to have Jeff as part of the Boalt community."
