“I’ve take courses since 2007,” says Jordan (pictured).
He says he also has been accepted in a program for a master’s degree in judicial studies that is a collaboration between NJC, the University of Nevada, Reno, and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.
Jordan says he won election to the 160th District Court in 2006 and began serving on Jan. 1, 2007. Although it is a general jurisdiction court, Jordan says he generally receives civil cases.
In 1986, then-Gov. Mark White appointed him to the 44th District Court for an unexpired term, Jordan says.
Jordan is a 1977 graduate of Texas Tech University School of Law.
