Denver Law Students Create Wills for Native American Tribes
During their spring break, 11 students from the Sturm College of Law wrote and executed more than 60 wills for two Native American tribes as part of the law school’s Tribal Wills Project, according to College of Law Professor Lucy Marsh. Last fall, John Roach, fiduciary trust officer for the Southwest Region of the Department of Interior, contacted the Student Law Office about drafting the wills. Students attended three training sessions before traveling to Durango to meet with members of the Ute Mountain and Southern Ute tribes. This is the first time Denver Law participated in the project (April 2013).

Walck will receive a $1,000 scholarship, and her essay will be published on the Institute for Law and the Workplace website (March 25, 2013).
