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 on-demand webinar 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
