As the only law school in South Dakota, we take pride in uniquely preparing our students to practice law all over the country. Ranked as a national leader in judicial clerkships, the School of Law ensures that you don’t just graduate with a first-class education, but prepared for a lifelong career. We make our law education affordable, meaning you're getting a world-class education from a leading, flagship university while paying only a fraction of the tuition cost you might pay at other schools.

Since our first student graduated in 1902, we have grown into a diverse student body representing 27 states and more than 80 undergraduate colleges from across the nation, including Harvard University, the University of Arizona and the University of Ohio. 

Once enrolled, you’ll have the opportunity to be published in the South Dakota Law Review, attend the Student Bar Association national convention and face off in courtroom competitions against students from all around the U.S.

Whether you seek employment in rural South Dakota or at a busy firm in Chicago, you'll graduate knowing you have a bright future ahead.
