The University of South Dakota Knudson School of Law will be hosting its first “Law Camp” via Zoom on April 14, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. CST. Law Camp will introduce various degree programs and careers connected with the law in South Dakota. It is open to South Dakota high schoolers and there is no cost to participate. 

With presenters from a variety of legal careers, students will have a chance to hear about the career path and opportunities of judges, lawyers, probation officers, law enforcement officers, court clerks, court reporters, professionals working with diversion and specialty courts, and other parts of the legal system. It will include representatives from careers that require either two- or four-year degrees along with graduate programs like law school. 

In addition to these presenters, students will get to hear from postsecondary schools offering degree programs in these fields. Representatives of several South Dakota tribal colleges, technical colleges, and public universities will also present. They will let students know about their programs and the possibilities they offer.
