Information on South Dakota's Rural Practice Initiative

For more information on  Project Rural Practice, click here to link to the Project Rural Practice website.  The website provides a wealth of information about the Project as well as numerous links to resources for attorneys.

Patrick Goetzinger, Co-Chair of South Dakota's Project Rural Practice and symposium presenter, recently accepted the Louis M. Brown Award for Legal Access in Chicago during the American Bar Association’s Midyear Meeting on behalf of PRP.  Information on the Louis M. Brown Award is available here from the ABA.  As the ABA's site states, the Award is presented annually "to those who have made creative contributions to the delivery of legal services in ways that are exemplary and replicable."

The South Dakota State Bar also works in concert with the South Dakota Unified Judicial System in administering the Recruitment Assistance Pilot Program for rural attorneys.  For more information about the Program, click here to link to the UJS website dedicated to the Pilot Program.  The program is based on HB1096, which was passed by the Legislature in 2013.
