Law students help write wills on South Dakota reservations

Vermillion, South Dakota (AP) April 2010

Ten University of South Dakota law students spent their spring breaks writing wills for residents of South Dakota’s American Indian reservations.

The “Defractionation Tour” project is a collaboration of Dakota Plains Legal Services, Equal Justice Works/AmeriCorps and the USD School of Law.

The students opened 71 will preparation cases on the Rosebud, Pine Ridge, Cheyenne River and Standing Rock Sioux reservations. The goal was to draft 40 wills in four days.

Organizers say the project also raises public awareness about Indian estate planning through Dakota Plains Legal Services on all nine South Dakota reservations.
