Professor Frank Gevurtz shared the stage with actor Clint Eastwood, jazz icon Dave Brubeck and astronaut Jose Hernandez at the University of the Pacific’s graduation ceremony on May 20 in Stockton.
Gevurtz received the University’s Distinguished Faculty Award for his work in leading a national movement to globalize American law school curriculum. “I am thankful to be part of a faculty whose excellence in teaching and scholarship means that distinguished achievement here is the norm, not the exception,” Gevurtz said. He also offered advice for the graduates as they enter the work force. “Go forth. Do good. All the rest is commentary,” he said. Eastwood, Brubeck and Hernandez each received honorary degrees from the University for excellence in their fields.
