Education
JD
Class of 1979

Stanford began offering a curriculum in legal studies in 1893, when the university engaged its first two law professors. One was Benjamin Harrison, former President of the United States, who delivered a landmark series of lectures on the Constitution. The other was Nathan Abbott, who served as head of the nascent law program. Abbott assembled a small faculty to which he imparted a standard of rigor and excellence that endures to this day.In an effort to acknowledge the emerging professional nature of the department, Stanford's Board of Trustees passed a resolution in 1908 to substitute the term 'law school' for 'law department,' though technically the law program remained a department within the university.The law school was at the forefront of efforts to institute the California Bar exam, which was added to the requirements to practice law in California in 1919. The law school was accredited by the American Bar Association in 1923, the year the ABA began certifying law schools.

BA, Phi Beta Kappa
Class of 1976

Ciranova's objective is to deliver a quantum productivity advance in custom IC physical design for nanometer silicon geometries. Ciranova™ customers get more complex, higher-performance analog, mixed-signal and RF ICs to market sooner and at lower cost than their competitors-especially at 65nm and below.Analog, mixed-signal and RF circuits are a major differentiator and a major design challenge in modern SoC-based electronics. Both the circuit design and the complexity of the underlying silicon have changed dramatically; yet the physical design-schematic, layout editing, and extensive hand manipulation of low-level geometry-is fundamentally the same as it was in the early 1990's.Ciranova changes this. Its mission is not to build new schematic or layout editors, but to add automation at both the PCell and circuit levels that works with your existing flow to dramatically reduce your design effort.
