Law Students Gain Experience Through WORKS CLINIC
The students also participated in a master class, Trying a Family Law Case, taught by Linda Lea Viken.
“This was a great opportunity to get experience how another South Dakota circuit works while also being able to serve South Dakota residents statewide,” said second-year law student Taylor Anderson.
The WORKS CLINIC is free and provides forms and mediation aid for qualifying divorcing couples. It’s made possible by the collaborative efforts of the USD Knudson School of Law, the South Dakota State Bar Foundation, the South Dakota Bar Association ADR Committee and the Unified Judicial System First, Second and Seventh Circuit Courts.
