Congratulations to Julian SpearChief-Morris (Blood Tribe) on his recent election as President of Harvard Law School's Legal Aid Bureau, (HLAB). As one of Harvard's historical honor societies at Harvard Law School, the HLAB provides an opportunity for law students to engage in legal practice with real clients involving a myriad of issues ranging from housing and immigration to family law. With over 50 students involved, the program is the second largest provider of legal aid services in the Boston area. Julian was recently elected to serve on the 2017 board as President. He is the first Indigenous student to serve in that role in the organization's 104-year-old history.

Julian SpearChief-Morris is currently a 2L student at Harvard Law School. In addittion to working with HLAB, he is also a co-president of the Harvard Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) at Harvard. Harvard NALSA was recognized as the national student chapter of the year at last year's Federal Indian Law conference in Arizona.
