Jackson has no shortage of higher-learning institutes, which means more skilled professors than you can shake a ruler at. For Jacksonians, Mississippi College School of Law professor Jeffrey Jackson represents the best when it comes to the city’s educators.

The Pennsylvania native got his bachelor’s degree in religion from Haverford College in Haverford, Pa., in 1978, and he received his law degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 1983. Jackson began teaching at the Mississippi College School of Law in 1987 and for the most part, has been there ever since.

The accomplished professor has received many awards, including the Award for Teaching Excellence at MC, and he has authored and edited 15 volumes on Mississippi law. Jackson’s passion is law—and teaching his students.

“I’ve learned a heck of a lot more from my students than I could ever teach them,” he says. —Amber Helsel
