NARF welcomes 2016 Summer Law Clerk Nazune Menka
Categories: Professional Training (Law Clerk Program)
At NARF, we are dedicated to supporting the next generation of Indian law lawyers, and one way we do this is through our Law Clerk Program. This week we’re highlighting Nazune Menka, a law clerk in our Anchorage, Alaska, office who has joined us through Seattle University School of Law’s Alaska Summer Program.
Nazune is Koyukon Athabascan and Lumbee Indian and was born and raised in Anchorage and Chistochina, Alaska. Nazune recently completed her first year of law school at Seattle University and, this fall, will transfer to the James E. Rogers School of Law at the University of Arizona, where she will be a Williams Achievement Scholar and receive a full tuition scholarship in the Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy program. Most recently, Nazune has worked at the Hawai‘i State Senate Ways and Means Committee and the Department of Energy Legacy Management Unit. Nazune completed her M.S. in Environmental Chemistry from the University of Arizona in 2013.
