USD School of Law Alum Nominated to SD Supreme Court
“I’ve known Judge Jensen for many years and think highly of his judicial demeanor and professionalism,” said Tom Geu, dean of the USD School of Law. “He has been one of the Law School’s most ardent supporters and we are proud that he is one of our graduates.”
A former South Dakota Supreme Court law clerk, Jensen will replace fellow USD law graduate Justice Lori Wilbur who retired earlier this year. He was appointed to the First Circuit in 2003 by Gov. Mike Rounds after 14 years of private practice in the Dakota Dunes area.
Jensen is a member of the South Dakota and Iowa bar associations. He received his undergraduate degree from Bethel College and graduated from the USD School of Law in 1988.
