Description

Indian Legal Program enhancement Project 2015 Indian Legal Program Enhancement Project Please provide a brief description of the project submitted to the 12% SRPMIC Grant Program. The Indian Legal Program Enhancement Project includes several objectives that will strengthen a nationally recognized Indian law program and train future Native American attorneys in the field of Indian Law and Tribal Law. Funding Objectives: 1. Legal Services: funding for the Indian Legal Clinic, a free legal services clinic for Native clients or clients with Indian Law issues. The funding helps the clinic with core operations, travel and staffing; 2. Community Outreach: funding for community programs that may include a Native American Law School Admissions Workshop for students interested in law school, trainings for tribal court advocates; and national conferences on Indian law developments; 3. Student Development: funding for Indian Rights Fellowships and Moot Court. The Fellowships provide students the opportunity to undertake practical experiences with various groups that cannot offer pay or provide only very little compensation. The Moot Court funding will allow participation in the annual NALSA Competition to improve law student oral argument skills. 4. Student Scholarships: funding for students studying Indian law with the intent of earning the Indian Law Certificate; and 5. Visiting Assistant Professor: funding an attorney to assist professors while receiving training to become a law professor.
