Professor Roger Baron is the 2008 recipient of The University of South Dakota School of Law John Wesley Jackson Outstanding Faculty Award. Baron was selected by a committee consisting of School of Law Dean Barry Vickrey, Justin Johns, president of the Student Bar Association, and Professor Charles Thatcher, last year's recipient.
