About the Rural Practice Symposium

From the Symposium Flyer:

Join the University of South Dakota School of Law in a discussion about the rapidly declining number of attorneys in rural areas across the nation.  This decline is not only contributing to lackluster small towns, but it is also seriously restricting access to justice for many U.S. citizens. In the upcoming academic year, the South Dakota Law Review will explore the problems facing rural practitioners and legal consultants across the country and examine new solutions for revitalizing rural America.  This analysis will include a dialogue about South Dakota’s innovative rural lawyer recruitment legislation as well as different programs being implemented in other states. 

By gathering advocates of Project Rural Practice and experts on rural economics, the Symposium will offer the most compelling conversation about rural practice and South Dakota’s novel approach to the problem of disappearing legal services.  This discussion is designed to continue the promotion of rural practice both locally and nationally, and we hope it will inspire students and practitioners to break the stereotype that urban living is inherently superior to rural living.

Location, Map, and Parking Information

All sessions of the Rural Practice Symposium will take place in the Courtroom of the University of South Dakota School of Law.  The Law School is located on Cherry Street across the parking lot from the Muenster University Center.  Metered parking is available outside the Law School on a limited basis.
