Description

Indian Legal Program Enhancement Project Indian Legal Program Enhancement Project The Indian Legal Program at the Sandra Day OConnor College of Law recently celebrated its 30 year anniversary. The program has been successful thanks to three key goals that the administrators have continued to follow over the years. The program recruits and trains Native American law students and non-Native students to be great Indian Law practitioners. The programs helps generate research in the field of Indian law, and enters into partnerships with tribes and Indian organizations to solve important issues. The Indian Legal Program has a strong administrative team to make sure these goals are met and tribal partners are working with talented students. The Indian Legal Program Enhancement Project includes several objectives that will strengthen a nationally recognized Indian Law program and train future Native and Non-Native 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 coordinator to work with students interested in law school and national conferences on Indian Law developments. 3. Student Development: funding for Indian Rights Fellowships, professional development activities, and Moot Court. The funding will give students the opportunity to undertake practical experiences with various groups. 4. Student scholarships: funding for students studying Indian law with the intent of earning the Indian Law Certificate.
