VERMILLION — The South Dakota Law Review will publish the first issue of its 65th volume with selected student articles on topics including refugee admission and forced catheterization.

Volume 65 of the South Dakota Law Review is jointly dedicated to Professor Emeritus Frank Pommersheim, who retired from USD Law last year after more than 30 years of teaching, and late South Dakota Supreme Court Justice Steven Zinter. Dedications contributed by their professional friends and colleagues will appear in Issue I.

The Law Review Board also recognized three current second year student staff writers who submitted top case notes during last spring’s board selection process. These students each received scholarships generously funded by South Dakota Law Review alumni U.S. District Court Judge Larry Piersol, Cathy Piersol and Harvey Jewett IV. The winning students were:

• David Levine — 1st Place: Recipient of the Judge Lawrence Piersol and Cathy Piersol Scholarship

• Connor Donohoe — 2nd Place (tie): Recipient of the Harvey Jewett Scholarship

• Danie Rang — 2nd Place (tie): Recipient of the Harvey Jewett Scholarship

The South Dakota Law Review is a journal of critical commentary on current legal issues with a state, national and international circulation. Published three times per year, the Law Review contains articles by leading members of the legal profession, as well as student notes and comments. Students involved in the Law Review develop their research and writing skills while earning academic credit. A student board of editors is responsible for all editorial work, and students are selected for board membership during their second year on the basis of their writing, leadership and dedication to the success of the Law Review.
