Colorado Law’s American Indian Law Clinic will receive the 2008 CU Diversity Service Recognition Award presented by the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Minority Affairs on February 19.
Under the creative and capable direction of Clinical Professor Jill Tompkins, the Clinic promotes diversity through its legal services and education. In addition, the Clinic’s campus-wide initiatives have included multiple panel discussions about tribal efforts to force the federal government to account for its handling of tribal trust funds, and a panel discussion about the impact of Indian gaming on tribal courts.
Other recipients of this year’s award include CU’s Office of Discrimination and Harassment, UMC Edge Team, Office of International Education, and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Ron Stump.
“Please join us in congratulating Professor Tompkins and her students for their commendable work that has brought notable distinction to Colorado Law and its clinical education program,” said Assistant Dean Lorenzo Trujillo.
