SPOKANE COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION INDIAN LAW SECTION
BAR PREPARATION SCHOLARSHIP
The Spokane County Bar Association (SCBA) Indian Law Section (ILS) was established in 2008 to create a forum and opportunity for the exchange of ideas in the field of Indian law for practitioners in the Inland Northwest, and to further the development and improve the application of justice in this field of law. To that end, each year for the past 11 years, the SCBA ILS has organized and held an all-day Indian law conference in Spokane, Washington. The SCBA ILS leadership has voted to use the proceeds from these conferences to fund a bar preparation scholarship for individuals who recently have or are planning to take a state bar exam in the near future, and who have demonstrated a commitment to furthering the goals of the SCBA ILS.
Scholarship recipients will be selected based on several criteria, including but not limited to demonstrated interest in and dedication to goals consistent with those of the SCBA ILS noted above; commitment to working in Indian law in the Northwestern United States; financial need; academic achievement; extracurricular and community activities; life experiences; and Native American, Native Alaskan, Native Hawaiian, or Canadian First Nation citizenship or heritage.
