It is with great pleasure to announce the Indian Law Clinic at MSU received an initial $200,000 to fund a Tribal Appellate Clerk Project from the Luce Foundation for the next 18 months. The funding allows us to assign students to tribal appellate courts to assist with research, memo writing, bench briefs and draft opinions. The Clinic is officially now seeking for tribal clients, so please reach out to [email protected] if you or your tribe might be interested in receiving these pro bono services from the Clinic.
IN ADDITION, the funding allows us to hire a Fellow/Coordinator for this project! Please apply here:
While this is a soft funded position with a time limit, we have an opportunity to reapply for the funding. In addition, prior ILC/ILPC fellows (including me!) have gone on to great job opportunities after working with us. The job includes working with students, coordinating with tribes and tribal courts, and (most exciting) taking students on site visits to the tribes we work with! We are looking to hire as soon as possible.
Thank you very much to the Luce Foundation and MSU’s own Foundation office for working with the Clinic to get us this funding.
