There are opportunities for attorneys throughout greater Wisconsin, says Dena Welden, a lawyer with the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
Sept. 7, 2022 – Dena Welden, a lawyer with the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, said that representing a tribe has presented her with opportunities sooner in her career than a law firm position in an urban area would have.
She also said that local governments in the Northwoods are desperate for assistant district attorneys and city and county attorneys.
“There’s opportunities for immediate experience, for immediate growth,” Welden said.
Welden was one of three lawyers who presented on the benefits of rural practice during a panel at the State Bar of Wisconsin’s Annual Meeting and Conference earlier this year.
