USD School of Law Alumnus Nominated to US Attorney for South Dakota
“It’s exciting to see a USD Law alum being nominated for this position,” said Liz Taggart, director of admissions at the Law School. “Parsons’ success in and out of South Dakota is something that we are tremendously proud of and excited to share with our prospective students.”
Winner of the Edward W. Hope Award for the highest G.P.A. in his graduating class, Parsons clerked for 8th Circuit Judge Roger Wollman after law school before focusing on appellate and constitutional law at the law firm Johnson Janklow Abdallah Reiter & Parsons where he is now a partner.
Parsons is a frequent guest lecturer at the School of Law. A short story author, Parsons received his undergraduate degree in English from the University of Minnesota.
Parsons would replace Randy Seiler, also a USD School of Law graduate, who took the post in 2015.
