NARF is dedicated to supporting the next generation of Indian law lawyers. One way we do this is through our Law Clerk Program. This week we’re highlighting Chelee John, a law clerk in NARF’s Washington, D.C., office.
Chelee is a citizen of the Navajo (Diné) Nation and is entering her third year at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, where she will graduate with a North American Law Dual Degree and an Indian Legal Certificate. Before law school, Chelee attended Dartmouth College where she graduated with a double major in Psychology and Native American Studies. Last summer, she was selected as a Udall Foundation Native American Congressional Intern and spent her summer with the Office of the Solicitor, Division of Indian Affairs in the Department of the Interior. Chelee is thrilled to be back in Washington, D.C., where she hopes to gain further experience working on behalf of tribal nations at the federal and international levels.
