The USD School of Law is hosting its long-standing Biennial Indian Law Symposium through Friday in its Courtroom facilities. Along with USD Law's Native American Law Student Association (NALSA), the School of Law will present "Public Safety in Indian Country: Tribal, Federal & State Responses." Students, practitioners, judges, scholars and the general public are invited to join this year's events that will focus on public safety, the protection of women and the recent Tribal Law & Order Act. This year's symposium begins at 7 p.m. tonight with a keynote address by Brendan Johnson, United States Attorney for the State of South Dakota. Helping to lead these events will be USD Law's own nationally-recognized Indian Law professor, scholar and Tribal appellate court judge Frank Pommersheim and he joined the program to discuss the symposium.
