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. This week we’re highlighting Katie Jones, a law clerk in NARF’s Boulder, Colorado, office.
Katie is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and a rising third year student at Yale Law School. Last summer, she worked at The White House’s Domestic Policy Council on the Native American Affairs team. Before law school, Katie led Indian education policy and advocacy for the National Congress of American Indians and taught 4th grade on the Rosebud Reservation. Katie holds a Bachelor of Arts in American Studies with honors and distinction from Stanford University. After graduating from law school, Katie looks forward to clerking for the Honorable Carlos Lucero on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
