USD law students welcome Supreme Court

Posted: Updated:

With watchful eyes they observe demeanor. With attuned ears they listen to inflection and tone. This is a big day for University of South Dakota law students.

"The court being here is like Christmas for us. We wake up early. We're ready to go. We don't drag into the school. We want to be here. We want to see everything. We want to observe everything," said third year law student Kim Dehueck. "It's like a big present that they came and put these arguments on in front of us."

Every spring, the USD School of Law welcomes the South Dakota Supreme Court for the Court's March term.

"They're gracious enough to come down and let us see what the hot button issues are and what potential issues we'll be facing as new attorneys in a few years," said second year law student Zach Flood.

The Supreme Court listens to a total of nine oral arguments over the course of three days. The cases include criminal and family law.

"We love to read the briefs and get into the cases. We have discussions with each other and discussions with our professors," said Dehueck. "It kind of makes what we learn every day more real life."
