Law Students Help East River Legal Services Celebrate 40 Years
“East River Legal Services displays to student attorneys the true value of providing services to someone who has a legal need, but cannot afford it. The ability to practice law is a privilege and East River Legal Services utilizes that privilege in an astounding manner,” said Kaleb Paulsen, a third-year law student at USD.
ERLS will host several events starting with a VIP reception at 4 p.m. at their headquarters at 335 North Main Avenue in Sioux Falls this Tuesday, Nov. 28. The VIP reception includes a tour of the many renovations to the ERLS building and a meal prepared by ERLS Board of Directors President, Steve Huff. The price is $40 and includes general admission to the main event at the ICON Lounge starting at 5 p.m. General admission to the ICON Lounge event is $30.
Paulsen encouraged students to attend the celebration.
“East River Legal Services has supported a number of law school functions. They attend various legal clinics in which attorneys work side-by-side with students in handling a client’s issue. They provide mentorship and leadership to student attorneys. This dinner is open to students to celebrate the difference that is made by East River Legal Services and to show them the impact they can make in the legal field,” said Paulsen.
