The Project

My project has three objectives: recruitment of pro bono attorneys, coordination of pro bono projects at the University of South Dakota School of Law and provision of direct legal services. We currently have 10 projects at the law school covering the following areas of law; human rights, family law, Indian law, tax, public defense, veterans rights, elder law, environmental law and domestic violence. My caseload consists primarily of family law cases.
