At NARF we are dedicated to supporting the next generation of Indian law attorneys.  One way we do this is through our law clerk program.  This week we’re highlighting My-Lann Dodd, a law clerk in NARF’s Anchorage, Alaska office.

My-Lan is entering her third year at Seattle University School of Law. She previously interned at Northwest Justice Project in Yakima, Washington performing civil legal aid work, and last year she researched Native American land and natural resource rights and fee-to-trust issues. She earned a B.A. in Sociology and Development Studies from UC Berkeley and a M.A. in Social Sciences from The University of Chicago. Prior to and during law school, she works to secure land rights for the rural poor in the developing world at Landesa, a international non-profit. Her interests include law reform and legal empowerment efforts to secure land, natural resource, and governance rights.

Welcome, My-Lan!
