The General Public Practice and Indian Law Clinic is part of Gonzaga Law School’s Community Justice Project. The clinic has a contract with the Kalispel Tribe to provide civil and misdemeanor criminal services to Kalispel members. We represent tribal members in tribal court, state court, and federal court. Additionally, the clinic also provides civil and misdemeanor criminal services to clients residing in Spokane County.
We are fundamentally a direct services and trial practice clinic. Aiming to put passion into practice, the General Public Practice and Indian Law Clinic strives to be a bridge connecting future lawyers with the community and to integrate their knowledge of substantive and procedural law with practice skills.
Under the direction of supervising attorneys, our law interns represent clients facing various legal challenges, which may include family law, children’s rights, consumer law, misdemeanor criminal law, prisoners’ rights, civil rights, public entitlements, housing, estate planning, surrogate decision making, and health care.
