USD School Of Law Reflects On Janklow's Legacy

USD School Of Law Reflects On Janklow's Legacy
VERMILLION, SD - Bill Janklow began his career as a graduate of the University of South Dakota School of Law, where administrators say the former governor leaves a lasting impact on current and former students.

Fresh out of law school, Janklow helped people who couldn't afford a lawyer and eventually worked his way up to the highest lawyer position in the state.

"There is no question that Bill Janklow was a leader, not only among lawyers and people, but among governors," USD School of Law Associate Dean Thomas Sorensen said.

Janklow graduated with the law class of 1966.  Sorensen says Janklow maintained a presence at the school and says they've always been proud to call him a graduate.

"I am certain he will be missed. We won't be able to go to him for advice or that sort of thing anymore," Sorensen said.

In 2001, Janklow spoke at the school's graduation ceremony. Sorensen says Janklow was a model, mentor and an example of a lawyer in South Dakota, proving to students just how far they can go in their careers.

"I am sure that he inspired the students to do good with their law degree and to help society because that is what law school is about," Sorensen said.

While working as a journalist in 1974, Sorensen first met Janklow as he was running for Attorney General. He says the two men disagreed on many issues, but both men deeply respected each other.
