In sovereign Indian nations throughout the US, there’s a severe lawyer shortage and nonlawyer tribal advocates representing clients in tribal courts. Some of these advocates are caring and skilled; others do more harm than good. 

Many citizens of these nations can’t even access tribal advocates and desperately reach out to court personnel for assistance. 

This session describes the severity of the access to justice crisis in Indian country and explores the roles paralegals might play in alleviating the crisis.

For all levels: beginning, intermediate, and advanced
