David Jordan is a Sydney barrister who graduated from Sydney University with degrees in both Science and Law. He was admitted as a solicitor in 1990. He became a barrister in 1992. He originally practised in a broad range of areas, including criminal law, personal injury and medical negligence. He has since rationalised his practice, resolving that largely into one of crime. Mr Jordan prosecutes in the areas of Commonwealth criminal law and customs, and in other State-based prosecutions such as environmental, fisheries and police matters. He also appears in coronial inquests and inquiries, usually for the law enforcement agencies. His personal commitment to strengthening the ties between Medicine and the Law continues, particularly as his wife is a consultant at St Vincent's Hospital in Darlinghurst.
