While attending Creighton School of Law, Professor Volkmer was a member of Alpha Sigma Nu and the first Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review. He was a teaching fellow at the University of Illinois during the academic year 1968-69. He joined the Creighton faculty in 1969. While on sabbatical leave during the 1975-1976 academic year, he was a Cook graduate fellow at the University of Michigan. He has written articles for the Creighton Law Review and the Iowa Law Review. He is a member of the House of Delegates of the Nebraska State Bar Association and is an Academic Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel. For ten years he authored a column entitled “Recent Fiduciary Decisions” in Estate Planning Magazine. Professor Volkmer led or co-led law school students on an immersion trip to the Dominican Republic regularly since the trip was founded. His sense of service and faith is profound and his actions inspire new generations to follow his example. The Dominican Republic trip is part of Professor Volkmer’s legacy, and the Law School and Creighton University’s Division of Mission and Ministry renamed the law school’s DR trip to the Ronald Volkmer Dominican Republic Immersion Trip. Professor Volkmer retired in 2016.
