USD Native American Law Students Association Wins National Award
The awards are presented annually at the Indian Law Conference. The Native American Law Student Association chapter at USD previously won the Chapter of the Year award in 2008.
“I was humbled and honored that our chapter won this award,” said Kyle Chase, second-year law student and president of the USD NALSA Chapter. “There are many NALSA chapters in various law schools across the nation so to be recognized for our efforts at a national level was very special.
“The NALSA membership has worked really hard to bring attention to Native American Issues, assist in legal aid on the SD reservations, and promote the education of our members” Chase said. “This recognition puts the spotlight on South Dakota and our law school. It also signifies all of our accomplishments, and I look forward to see this continue next year.”
The National Native American Law Students Association was founded in 1970 to promote the study of Federal Indian Law, Tribal Law and traditional forms of governance, and to support Native Americans in law school. It strives to reach out to Native communities and encourage Native people to pursue legal education. It also strives to educate the legal community about Native issues.
