We want to thank Remí Ri’Chard, who joined our Boulder office team this semester as a legal extern.
Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, Remí spent her undergrad years looking for a career that would enable her to give back to her community in meaningful ways. Working as a peer advocate for victims of domestic violence, she realized how significant proper legal representation can be. It was then that she decided a legal career would give her the skills to affect meaningful change in people’s lives.
Remí earned a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy with a concentration in Law and Justice; she is currently pursuing a J.D. at the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law. Last summer, she had the opportunity to contribute to a legal aid program called the Tribal Wills Project. She worked with tribal members of the Navajo Nation to provide them with a last will and testament. The work opened her eyes to the possibilities of practicing Indian Law. As a woman of color, Remi believes marginalized groups must work together to uplift one another. In the future, Remi hopes to work in the cross-section of transactional work and Indian Law.
In her free time, Remí enjoys trivia, volleyball and DIY projects.More blog posts
