Indian Law Office
The Indian Law Office provides representation to low-income Native Americans in civil matters involving Indian law issues. The Indian Law Office has a long history of providing legal counsel on significant Indian law cases in Wisconsin (e.g., Menominee Restoration, the Voigt case, the Crandon School District case, the American Indian Religious Freedom Act Amendments of 1994).
Additionally, Judicare's Indian Law Office provides legal assistance to Indian tribes on a variety of tribal projects through contracts and agreements with individual tribes (e.g., tribal codes and court development, lay advocate training, tribal/state judicial relations, tribal GAL trainings).
Judicare has one of the best Indian law libraries in Wisconsin, including resource materials specific to Indian tribes and Indian legal issues from Wisconsin, as well as nationally.
