    With 573 federally recognized tribes, each with its own laws and judicial system, conducting research into tribal law, which is the law of individual tribal nations, can be daunting. Indian law practitioners must navigate the complexities of federal, tribal, and state case law, statutes, and regulations, and be comfortable with accessing resources such as treaties and tribal codes. This program will demystify research into federal Indian law (the law defining the relationship between tribes and the government) and tribal law (the internal law of each sovereign tribe).

    A key challenge to modern practitioners is locating tribal law and court decisions, which frequently are unavailable online. Today’s attorneys expect to easily locate these resources via search engines and legal databases.But many tribes do not make, or have resources available to make, their ordinances and court opinions available online. Even when tribal law is available online, finding those sources can be difficult. Other times, older versions may be available, but not recent amendments or decisions, leading lawyers to cite bad law.

    Learn how to navigate, access,and utilize key resources in tribal law, including tribal constitutions, codes, and case law. You'll also get advice from the experts on selecting, assembling, and evaluating key instruments of tribal law, contextualizing those resources in the cultural, history, and legal traditions of individual tribes, and employing tribal codes and cases in an informed and culturally competent manner.

    Join our expert panel of legal librarians and scholars as they guide you in identifying and addressing these situations.

    • Cynthia R. Harris (Staff Attorney, Research; Policy; Director, Tribal Programs; Deputy Director, Center for State, Tribal, and Local Environmental Programs, Environmental Law Institute) [Moderator]
    • Anne Lucke (Law Librarian, National Indian Law Library)
    • Stacey Gordon-Sterling (Professor; Director, Jameson Law Library; University of Montana)
