Stanley G. Feldman, Class of 1956.  Moving to Arizona as a child in the 1930s, Stanley Feldman attended public schools in Tucson, did his undergraduate work at UCLA and the University of Arizona, and in 1956 graduated at the top of his class at the University of Arizona College of Law.  He was soon recognized as a formidable trial lawyer and leader within the legal profession.  He served as President of the Pima County Bar and the State Bar of Arizona before being appointed to the Supreme Court of Arizona in 1982, a position he held for two decades.  Presiding as Chief Justice of the Court from 1992 through 1996, he dedicated himself to modernizing and improving the judicial system, most notably in juvenile justice, the jury system, the conduct of civil litigation, and the protection of individual rights. 

A judge of notable brilliance and energy, Justice Feldman has had a profound effect on the law of Arizona as well as other states.  During his long tenure, the Arizona Supreme Court became one of the nation’s most respected state high courts.  In addition to being a moving force in the Conference of Chief Justices of the United States, he has maintained a deep involvement with the University of Arizona, serving on the University of Arizona Foundation and the Law College Association boards and teaching courses at the College.  Justice Feldman has also been active in a wide range of civic organizations, including the National Advisory Council of the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science.  Justice Feldman’s outstanding contributions to law and humanitarian causes have been recognized not only by the University of Arizona and its alumni association, but also by the State Bar of Arizona, the American Judicature Society, and other state and national groups.  As lawyer, jurist, and public citizen, Justice Feldman has devoted himself to the highest ideals of liberty, freedom of conscience, and the rule of law.
