About LSND

Legal Services of North Dakota (LSND) was formed in 2004 following the consolidation of two long time North Dakota legal aid programs; Legal Assistance of North Dakota, Inc., better known as LAND, and North Dakota Legal Services based out of New Town, North Dakota.

LSND’s mission is to provide high quality legal advice, education and representation to low-income North Dakotans as well as disadvantaged elderly in areas of civil law.

LSND is governed by a twelve member Board of Directors from throughout North Dakota. Board members include eight North Dakota attorneys. LSND has offices located in Bismarck, Fargo, Minot, New Town and Belcourt with staff numbering twenty-four including eight attorneys.

Legal Services of North Dakota receives roughly 8000 applications for assistance each year and is able to provide at least some assistance in about two-thirds of the requests. LSND accepts applications through toll-free telephone lines, on-line over the web and at various outreach sites throughout North Dakota.
