USD Students Help with Indian Wills Project
Seven law school students from the University of South Dakota School will spend their spring break opening will cases on three of the state's Indian reservations.
The Indian Wills Project seeks to write wills for tribal residents during a span of three days while also raising public awareness about Indian estate planning services through Dakota Plains Legal Services on all nine of South Dakota's reservations. The students hope to open 30 new case files for Dakota Plains.
They'll host informational and service activities in Wagner, Fort Thompson and Eagle Butte. The project is a collaboration with Dakota Plains and Equal Justice Works/AmeriCorps. Classes at USD are scheduled to resume Monday, March 14.
