South Dakota Law to Host 2010 National NALSA Moot Court

From an email we received….

Hello All,

NNALSA is proud to announce that the 2010 NNALSA Moot Court Competition will be hosted by the University of South Dakota (USD) NALSA Chapter in Vermillion, South Dakota February 19-20, 2010.

South Dakota is ecstatic about hosting this years competition. The University of South Dakota has an outstanding Indian Law Program with some of the most prominent Indian law scholars in the country. The facilities for the NNALSA moot court competition are bar none. The school has done extensive remodeling and construction over the past few years which will be excellent for the NNALSA Moot Court Comeptition. The USD NALSA chapter has shown their dedication to Indian issues through their regional moot court competition, which has been held the past two years. The USD School of Law has an extremely active NALSA chapter with hard working members.

I hope that everyone will join us this year in the heart of Indian country. I will be sending out future deadlines, contact information, hotel information, and airport information at a later date. Thank you.
