About Sarah Barron

I've been practicing law since 1995, when I earned my J.D. from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in Cleveland, Ohio. During my studies, I spent a year as a visiting student at the University of North Dakota School of Law.

Before opening Barron Law Firm in 2012, I worked in a number of other positions: associate attorney at Pearson, Christensen, & Clapp in Grand Forks; clinical instructor in the Legal Aid Association and later visiting assistant professor in the Clinical Education Program at the University of North Dakota School of Law; staff attorney for North Dakota's Northeast Central Judicial District; assistant Polk County (Minnesota) attorney.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, I taught English at Illinois State University, Ohio State University, and Cleveland State University. I received a Ph.D. In English Literature from The Ohio State University in 1992 and a B.A. In Literature from Antioch College in 1975.

I am a member of the American Bar Association, the State Bar Association of North Dakota, the Minnesota State Bar Association, the Greater Grand Forks County Bar Association, and The Randy H. Lee American Inn of Court. I currently serve as president of The Randy H. Lee American Inn of Court and as vice president of the women's law section of the State Bar Association of North Dakota. I am a former member and former chair of the Inquiry Committee Northeast of the State Bar Association of North Dakota and I've served on the board of directors of the Greater Grand Forks Symphony Orchestra and the Northern Valley Youth Orchestras.

Outside of my work, I enjoy spending time with my two adult children and my husband, John Madden, an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of North Dakota. In my spare time, I also enjoy reading, music, petting my cats and walking my dog.
