Anishinabe Legal Services (ALS)

  • To Volunteer, Contact:

ALS provides legal services to low-income residents of the Leech Lake, White Earth, and Red Lake Reservations (Cass, Hubbard, Beltrami, Clearwater, Mahnomen, Becker, and Itasca counties). Cases focus primarily on issues involving the intersection of poverty law and federal Indian law. ALS needs volunteer attorneys to handle Indian law issues, educational and racial discrimination cases, domestic abuse, consumer, housing, juvenile law, especially the Indian Child Welfare Act, and other types of cases. Volunteers should have the ability to relate to low-income Native Americans and need to be licensed to practice law in Minnesota. Attorney support services include consultations with staff attorneys and use of the office library including Westlaw. Law students may do research and special projects.
