The Law of Indian Tribes seminar will focus on the political and legal systems of the “Indian Tribes.” By introducing the study of tribal governments, this seminar will study the constitutions and laws of the Tribes, old and new, written and unwritten, as norm and custom and positive law. This seminar will explore the ways history, legislation, and litigation influence the development of case law. It will study several judicial opinions rendered by the Tribes’ courts and regulatory bodies. There is no prerequisite.
