NARF is dedicated to supporting the next generation of Indian lawyers. One way we do this is through our Law Clerk Program, which is a ten to twelve week program for students who have completed their second year of law school. NARF has recently welcomed the law students who were chosen to participate in NARF’s 2015 Law Clerk Program, and this week we’re highlighting Alayna Farris, a law clerk in NARF’s Boulder, Colorado office.
Alayna is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation. She lives in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, with her husband Zak, three year old daughter Zoey, and step-son Evan. After graduating from Northeastern State University, Alayna worked for Cherokee Nation Indian Child Welfare. Her work with Indian children and encouragement from her community led her to pursue a law degree. Alayna is currently a third year student at the University of Arkansas School of Law and she is looking forward to working for Indian Country.
Welcome, Alayna!More blog posts
