“The Supreme Court’s annual visit provides our students with a great educational experience to see the appellate process in action. It’s also an extraordinary opportunity for us to ‘welcome home’ five alumni leaders of the School of Law,” stated Barry Vickrey, dean of the School of Law, who noted that all five members of the South Dakota Supreme Court, Chief Justice David Gilbertson (’75) and Justices John Konenkamp (’74), Steven Zinter (’75), Judith Meierhenry (’77) and Glen Severson (’75) are graduates of the USD School of Law.
The justices have extended an invitation to the public to attend any of the Court’s sessions. To assist with the Supreme Court visit, persons in attendance must abide by proper courtroom etiquette and must enter through the southeast door of the School of Law. The Supreme Court employs security methods to insure the well-being of all who attend its proceedings and all attending the morning court sessions will be requested to pass through a metal detector. Backpacks and book bags should not be brought, and other bags and purses are subject to inspection and search by security personnel.
