About Us

    The State Bar of South Dakota has over 3,000 members and 1,800 active in-state members. The State Bar is responsible to the South Dakota Supreme Court for the admission and discipline processes for all South Dakota attorneys.  The SBSD also provides continuing legal education and other member services at no cost to our membership. SBSD members are leaders in their communities and participate in education and outreach activities for their state throughout the year - including civics instruction and mock trials in public schools, pro bono legal services through local clincs and Ask-A-Lawyer, and volunteering on a variety of non-profit organization board of directors and committees. The SBSD advocates to ensure adequate support for the state court system and promotes legislation to advance the cause of justice.  The State Bar also partners with organizations and statewide agenices to ensure the delivery of legal services to all South Dakota citizens.

    The State Bar is governed by a Board of Bar Commissioners, all of whom are licensed attorneys in South Dakota. SBSD promotes the interests of the legal profession and works to improve the relationship between the profession and the public.
