Tribal Courts

The Menominee Tribal Court is a court of general jurisdiction with appellate review operating under the authority of the Menominee Tribal Constitution and By-laws as a separate and equal branch of the Tribal Government. The Menominee Tribal Court provides judicial services to the Menominee Indian Reservation.

The Menominee Tribal Court is looking for a few talented individuals to engage in the practice of law. The first part of this
advocacy program is learning about criminal law and representation. We have teamed up with the Mitchell Hamline School of
Law. They will be providing the instructions/expertise and we will be providing the students and funding. This program starts
in March and is expected to last one year. Learning will be online, except for one week. During that week you will travel to St.
Paul, Minnesota and experience hands-on learning and instruction while preparing for a mock trial.

In order to apply, fill out the attached application and submit it along with a writing sample by February 15th 2019. The writing
sample does not need to be long, a couple paragraphs will suffice. We need to make sure that anyone admitted to this
program can read and write. Remember you will be appearing in front of a tribal judge representing someone who will be
depending on your expertise.

There will also be a background check. If you are one of the lucky few selected for this awesome responsibility, you will be
expected to practice in the MENOMINEE TRIBAL COURT and take at least three cases upon successfully completing this
criminal lay advocacy program.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Chief Justice Stephan Grochowski at Menominee Tribal Courts.
