South Dakota House Counsel

South Dakota does not provide special admission rules for house counsel attorneys licensed in other jurisdictions.

However, the Multijurisdictional Practice Rules (MJP) of the South Dakota Rules of Professional Conduct allow house attorneys licensed in other jurisdictions to practice law in South Dakota without engaging in the unauthorized practice of law.

Please also see the South Dakota Bar Reciprocity page to view the requirements for Admission on Motion, and the South Dakota Pro Hac Vice page to view the requirements for admission to a particular proceeding.
