NNALSA presented the award April 11 at the Federal Bar Association's Indian Law Conference in Santa Fe, N.M. The award is presented each year to a third-year law student who has demonstrated outstanding legal service to the American Indian community. Brown was recognized for his leadership on the NNALSA Board of Directors and for administering the Annual NNALSA Moot Court Competition.
As the 2013-2014 vice president of NNALSA, Brown ran the 22nd Annual NNALSA Moot Court Competition held at the University of Oklahoma College of Law where 64 teams from 29 law schools competed.
Brown graduates in May and said he wants to focus his practice in Indian and public interest law. He has extensive experience in leadership and organization as both a professional and as a student.
The OU Law NALSA chapter was named the Chapter of the Year. The chapter was recognized for hosting the moot court competition, creating a $2,000 American Indian law fellowship and organizing a speaker series on legal issues in tribal communities.
