Judge Jordan Speaking

Judge Adalberto Jordan answers student questions during a luncheon.

On Monday, September 20, we had the honor of hosting Judge Adalberto Jordan, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. The judge attended several meetings with FSU Law students. He spoke to Professor Wayne Logan’s Criminal Procedure – Police class and Professor Nat Stern’s Constitutional Law II class, and made remarks during a luncheon with members of law school journals and the Moot Court Team. Judge Jordan also attended a special reception with students from the Cuban American Bar Association and Hispanic Law Students Association, and members of the Federal Bar Association. In addition, he met with professors serving on FSU Law’s Clerkship Committee. During the luncheon with students, Judge Jordan candidly answered student questions about being the first Cuban-American to be a judge for the Eleventh Circuit, the differences in serving on the district and appellate courts, his favorite experiences on the federal bench, how he handles cases that may conflict with his personal views, qualities of a good advocate, and classes students should take if they want to obtain a federal judicial clerkship. Many thanks to our Career Services team for organizing Judge Jordan’s visit, which was part of our Jurist in Residence Program. It was our pleasure to welcome the judge to the law school and to be able to provide students with opportunities to interact with a federal judge.
