School of Law professor honored by SDTLA for exemplary service
SDTLA President Roger Tellinghuisen of the South Dakota Trial Lawyers Association cited Baron for his “exemplary scholarship and dedicated service to the bar” during a presentation in the courtroom of the School of Law, prior to the SDTLA’s annual mock trial for new law students at USD. Tellinghuisen noted that Baron researches and authors a family law casebook and his scholarly articles on ERISA issues and laws have been widely cited in court briefs and elsewhere in the legal profession in the representation of clients.
“I am indeed honored to be recognized by the South Dakota trial lawyers,” Baron said in accepting the award from Tellinghuisen. “From my current perspective – a perspective which has developed over the last 35 years since I graduated from law school in 1976, I can assure that there is no other organization for which I hold greater esteem.”
In addition to the award presentation on Thursday, Tellinghuisen, on behalf of the SDTLA, presented Thomas Geu, interim dean of the School of Law, with a $5,000 check that will be used to cover expenses incurred by the School of Law’s trial advocacy teams during the 2011-12 academic year.
