Native American Attorney Study

Dear NNABA Supporter:

The Native American Attorney Study is now closed and NNABA is happy to report that over 500 surveys were completed!  Preliminary results are anticipated to be released in spring 2015.

NNABA is deeply appreciative of those who took the time to complete the online survey, telephone interview or both.  We also are very grateful to those firms and individuals who sponsored this important initiative.  Without everyone’s participation and support, this study would not have been possible.

Although the study has closed, it is not too late to participate as a sponsor!  NNABA continues to seek sponsorships to fund this groundbreaking project. Outlines of the benefits for each sponsorship level and how to contribute can be found HERE.  The net proceeds will be used to fund the Research Initiative. We plan to energize the business and legal communities to further improve the status of Native Americans in the legal profession because it is in the best interest of the profession to do so. We hope you will join us in these efforts with your support.

If you have questions, please contact the National Native American Bar Association at either
