SD Gov. Signs Rural Attorney Recruitment Bill



Bookmark and Share

South Dakota Governor Daugaard signed a bill on Thursday that would encourage attorneys to practice law in rural South Dakota.

Currently, 65 percent of South Dakota attorneys are located in Minnehaha, Pennington, Hughes, and Brown counties. The measure will provide incentive payments over a five year period to attorneys that practice law in counties with a population of 10,000 or less.  Any participating attorney will have to agree to practice law on a full-time basis in the eligible county for five years. Attorneys would have to meet eligibility requirements set by the Unified Judicial System.

The incentive payment would be equal to 90 percent of the resident tuition for the University Of South Dakota School Of Law and divided up over five years.

Counties that participate would pay 35 percent of an incentive payment, the State Bar Association would pay 15 percent and the State of South Dakota would pay the remaining amount.
