"The Indian Legal Clinic is a fantastic experience. What many people don't realize is that Indian law requires taking on issues in almost every practice area. In my three semesters at the ILC we had both criminal prosecution and defense work. Clients brought issues to the ILC concerning intellectual property, contracts, the Indian Child Welfare Act, elections, and drafting new laws and regulations. The ILC is the only clinic that works in both the criminal and civil areas. Further, the ILC is the only clinic that works in three court systems: state, federal and tribal. This type of wide-ranging practice is a reality for an attorney who works for a tribal government or in the area of Indian law. As I am moving into my own practice, I am really able to hit the ground running because the Indian Legal Clinic prepared me for the myriad issues I am experiencing. The Indian Legal Clinic is a must-do experience for anyone who wants to be an Indian law practitioner."
