The Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal ran this coverage of the appointment of Susan Feathers to run the law school's Levin Center:

Stanford Law School on Wednesday named Susan J. Feathers executive director of the John and Terry Levin Center for Public Service and Public Interest Law.

Feathers, currently assistant dean for public service at University of Pennsylvania Law School, will join Stanford Law School in July. She brings 14 years of experience directing public service initiatives in law schools, as well as eight years of experience as a public interest law practitioner.

...The Levin Center was established earlier this year to give students greater opportunities to make public service a pervasive part of their JD experience. Its establishment coincides with changes under way to Stanford Law School's second- and third-year curriculum, part of a comprehensive plan to transform the JD into a multidimensional degree program that combines the study of other disciplines with team-oriented, problem-solving techniques and expanded clinical training.
