USD Law Professor and Student Each Win Top Honors at National Fraternitys Annual Meeting
The announcement was made Aug. 1 in Washington, D.C., at the legal fraternity’s 59th Biennial Convention.
Kyle Jensen, current dean of the USD Law Delta Theta Phi organization, and Katie Jorgensen, the immediate past dean, nominated Baron and Abby Leach for the awards. “We chose Professor Baron not only because of his career accomplishments but also his desire to be a great professor to his students,” said Jensen. “We chose Abby because of her commitment to academics while being involved with various organizations.”
The USD Chapter of Delta Theta Phi, called the Harlan-McKusick Senate, was founded in 1904, making it the second-oldest chapter in the country. It has approximately 120 current active members. DTP has partnered with the USD sports law group to raise money for the United Way and holds multiple social events and networking opportunities throughout the year. Members also have the opportunity to submit a note to The Adelphia Law Journal, the only authoritatively recognized law review from a law fraternity. The national organization has more than 136,000 members.
