USD NALSA named national Chapter of the Year
In recognition for the chapter’s hard work during the 2009-10 academic year, USD’s NALSA chapter was recognized nationally for the second time in three years (2008). Chapter of the Year is presented to the NALSA chapter demonstrating exceptional excellence in pro bono legal assistance, membership, community recognition and overall commitment to promoting the mission goals of National NALSA.
“This is impressive and a well-deserved accomplishment for so many who worked very hard throughout the year,” said Lonnie Wright, a second year law student, president of USD’s NALSA chapter. “It’s extremely rewarding to know that, as a group, we’ve been recognized for not just events we enjoy being a part of but by benefitting others as well.”
USD’s chapter was recognized for several achievements, including serving as hosts for the National NALSA Moot Court Competition, pro bono work with the Indian Wills Project, organizing a food drive to benefit the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, and coordinating a toy drive for children of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe.
