One of NARF’s five priorities is to develop Indian law. One effective way to advance that priority is by supporting the next generation of Indian law specialists through our Law Clerk Program. Our ten- to twelve-week summer program for second-year law students gives students the opportunity to gain real-world experience working on high-stakes, Indian law issues. NARF’s projects are extremely challenging because NARF practices before federal, state, and tribal forums, and most of our cases involve complex and novel legal issues.
This summer, the Law Clerk Program is again supported by a generous grant from the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians through the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund. Logan Big Eagle (Osage), a law clerk for the Boulder, Colorado, office, is this year’s recipient of the Siletz grant.
Logan attended undergraduate school at Oklahoma State University. He knew early in his undergrad career that he wanted to be a lawyer specializing in American Indian Law. Currently, he is a rising third-year (3L) law student at the University of Colorado School of Law.
Logan is a member of the Osage Nation and grew up in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, in the heart of the Osage reservation. He is pursuing his law degree with the hopes of making real change in Indian Country, and he is thrilled to get to work serving Indian Country!More blog posts
