Darrell D. Jackson, JD, PhD, joined the University of Wyoming College of Law in 2012. Most recently, he was a scholar-in-residence and fellow at the University of Colorado Law School. He earned his PhD in Educational Foundations, Policy, and Practice from the University of Colorado (Boulder) School of Education. Immediately prior, he served the George Mason University School of Law (GMUSL) as an Assistant Dean and Director of Diversity Services. Prior to joining GMUSL, he practiced law as an Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Columbia and as an Assistant County Attorney in Fairfax County, Virginia. Prior to joining the County Attorney's office, he served as judicial law clerk to The Honorable L.M. Brinkema in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia and to The Honorable Marcus D. Williams in the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit of Virginia. He received his JD from GMUSL where he was Editor-in-Chief and co-founded the George Mason University Civil Rights Law Journal.

Dr. Jackson’s research interests surround supporting historically marginalized communities (HMC) as they struggle to obtain an equitable share of power within truly democratic societies. His theoretical framework is formed at the intersections of three primary disciplines: law; education; and race, cultural, or ethnic studies; and primarily utilizes critical race theory. Using counter-narratives from HMCs and legal analysis that suggests protecting those whose interests are often overlooked, he critically analyzes institutional status quo through research, writing, teaching, commentary, and community service.
