At NARF, we are dedicated to supporting the next generation of Indian law lawyers. One way we do this is through our Law Clerk Program. Today, we feature Taylor Schad, a summer law clerk for our Boulder, CO, office.
Taylor Schad is a third-year (3L) law student at the University of Colorado Law School, where she studies American Indian, Environmental, and International Law. She got her undergraduate degree in Native American Studies from Stanford University. After she graduated from college, she worked with the Boys & Girls Club of Rosebud as an AmeriCorps VISTA. Taylor currently is the President of the Native American Law Students Association at Colorado Law as well as being a board member and co-founder of the Womxn of Color Collective.
Taylor is originally from the Black Hills in South Dakota and a citizen of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. After law school, Taylor hopes to continue working for good in Indian Country.
