Posted by Donna M. Connoly | Apr 02, 2021 | 0 Comments

Partner April Olson, a graduate of Arizona State University Sandra Day O'Conner College of Law Indian Legal Program (ILP), was recently featured in a series published by ILP titled, “Progress, Power, and Purpose,” in celebration of Women's History Month and contributions made by ILP women legal professionals and advocates.  Her advice for Native American women who want to work in federal Indian law?  “You belong here. And, don't be afraid to ask for help or support from your sisters.  We are here for you and it's not easy being BIPOC and an attorney. The stories we could tell.”  We agree April!  We are so proud of your many accomplishments.
