Mar 14, 2019 | ,

(KVHT) – The University of South Dakota has named a Miller, South Dakota native as the Dean of its School of Law. Neil Fulton attended Yale University and graduated with a B.A. in Political Science in 1994. Following college, he attended the University of Minnesota School of Law where he graduated summa cum laude, first in his class, and received the Devitt Award for excellence in trial advocacy courses. He also was the recipient of the Kaplan Award for overall academic excellence at graduation. USD President Sheila Gestring says Fulton brings an exceptional set of skills and experience to USD, adding that the faculty is incredibly excited for him to step in the role of Dean of the law school. Fulton was one of three finalists who interviewed on campus in February. The national search was led by a committee chaired by Dr. Mary Nettleman, dean of the USD Sanford School of Medicine. The Miller native will begin full-time as the law school’s dean this June.
