Christopher Scott is Awarded Procopio's Native American Practice Group Internship

San Diego, CA –Procopio welcomes Christopher Scott as a summer intern in the firm’s Native American Practice Group. He will be with the firm until July 18th. Christopher just completed his second year at the University of Oklahoma Law School. He is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and his interest in the field of Native American Law comes from his experiences within his tribal government, and his upbringing, as he was raised in Tahlequah, OK, which is the capital of the Cherokee Nation. Christopher served as a legal intern at the Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma and was a Legal Assistant at the Wall Law Office.

“Christopher holds a passion for Native American Law and has excelled at every level. We are excited to welcome him aboard this summer,” said Ted Griswold, Procopio partner and Native American Practice Group leader. “We look forward to watching his growth as he gains experience working with us and our extensive Native American clientele.”

Christopher will work on Native American legal practice matters and will gain hands-on experience dealing with everyday legal issues facing Native American clients, including working with tribal governments, businesses and inter-tribal entities, as well as gaining experience working in a full-service business law firm.

Procopio's Native American practice group extends the firm’s tradition of giving back to the community it serves through its summer internship program for Native American law students or law students interested in Native American law. The firm started this program in 2011 and has now welcomed six interns since its inception. Notably, Jaclyn Simi, an intern from 2012 and a citizen of the Seminole Nation, became a full-time associate with the firm, and Stephanie Conduff, an intern from 2013 and a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, still works with Procopio on a part-time basis as she finishes law school at the University of Oklahoma.
