On July 1, 2021, South Dakota enacted two new laws that require specific training for persons appointed or seeking to become appointed as guardians and conservators. South Dakota Codified Law 29A-5-119 provides that the training set up by the State Bar of South Dakota must inform all guardians and conservators of the rights of minors and protected persons, the duties and responsibilities of guardians and conservators, reporting requirements, provide least restrictive options for necessities that must be supplied, and resources to assist guardians and conservators to fulfill their duties.
