Adjunct Professor Teri L. Jackson is the first African-American woman to serve as a superior court judge in San Francisco. She has extensive litigation experience in civil and criminal law. In 2008, she was selected by the Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court to sit in Riverside County on a special Criminal Backlog Reduction Task Force, which resolved more than one thousand backlogged criminal cases in one year.

Prior to becoming a judge in 2002, Jackson was of counsel for Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, where she focused on complex commercial litigation. For more than 14 years, she worked as a prosecutor for the San Francisco District Attorney's Office and the San Mateo County District Attorney.
