Law Students Host Black Hills Legal Clinics Sept 21-22
Sponsored by the South Dakota Military Legal Alliance, the Veterans Legal Education Group, and the South Dakota Low Income Tax Clinic, 16 USD law students will join legal professionals in the area to answer questions from clients seeking advice.
Kaleb Paulsen, president of the Veterans Legal Education Group at USD, estimated they would assist over 125 military community members over the course of two days.
“This clinic is an opportunity for aspiring attorneys to join forces with practicing attorneys, allowing us to give back to those who have made continuous sacrifices for us and the rest of America,” Paulsen said.
The first event on Sept. 21 will occur at the South Dakota Veterans Home in Hot Springs from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Shuttles will be available to transport veterans to and from the Hot Springs VA location.
The second event, on Sept 22, will be located at the Rapid City VFW from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Before heading home, the law students will walk in the annual Black Hills Veteran March in Deadwood on Sept. 23.
