Annique has completed one year of law school at UND and expects to graduate in the spring of 2016.  She completed her undergraduate work at Minot State University in May of 2013 in Criminal Justice.

Annique’s background includes having worked for the ND Legislative Council, Nazarene Bible College and various positions in South Africa between 2006 and 2008.

Barbara Olds hails from Minnesota and graduated from Minnesota State University in Moorhead, MN with a degree in Criminal Justice in 2009.  She has completed one year of law school.  Her background includes working as a child protection case manager at White Earth, MN and working as an administrative legal assistant at the Becker County Attorney’s Office in Detroit Lakes, MN.

Ashley Bailey will begin her third and last year of law school at the University of Oregon School of Law this fall.  She is working in our Bismarck office this summer under the supervision of Attorney Mikayla Jablonski Jahner.  Her position is supported by the John D. Kelly Memorial Fund.

Ashley grew up on a ranch near Colstrip, Montana.  She completed undergraduate work at the University of Montana (Missoula) in 2009 with a B.A. in Communication Studies. 

Ashley’s background includes working as Operations Coordinator/Trip Planner organizing trips to Latin America.  She has volunteered at Missoula’s Children’s Museum and traveled to Central and South America, and Italy.

We welcome the opportunity to work with law students in the summer months to help further their legal education and expose them to legal aid and poverty law work.  We encourage private attorneys, government attorneys and judges to do the same.
