Christopher Just started his first year in law school after teaching on his reservation for five years, and at an alternative school in his current hometown for one year. Christopher thinks law was always in his future because his dad was in law enforcement for 10 years, here he built the adult probation program for his Tribe from the ground up. Christopher hopes to follow in his footsteps and provide representation to those on his reservation who tend to be underserved, and help his tribe continue its endeavor of holistic defense for his people.
