USD Hires Their Interim Dean into Permanent Role
Thomas Earl Geu has been appointed the dean of the School of Law at the University of South Dakota after working as interim dean since 2011. Geu has the background sufficient to empower him to fill this position, beginning at USD in 1989, teaching organization, transactional, and capital formation courses while writing about business organizational law.
He has also reviewed foreign laws including a Model Partnership Law for Afghanistan and an Economic Development Ordinance for St. Petersburg, Russia – as the school’s website reported — and has taught abroad in places such as in Bialystok, Poland, and headed a USD School of Law program in China.
Geu was a farmer’s boy in Nebraska before gaining his bachelor’s degree in economics and finance at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1980, as ArgusLeader.com reported. He then went on to get his law degree from the University of Nebraska College of Law in 1983. Since then he has been an elected member of the American Law institute and actively participated in the State Bar of South Dakota – specifically the Business Section, and also an active part of USD’s Intellectual Property Committee. He has also worked with judges at the U.S. Tax Court in Washington D.C and the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
