Limited Capacity seats available

Target Audience: Librarians engaged in American Indian Law research and teaching; or who assist attorneys, scholars, tribal members, and the public in doing research in American Indian Law
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to explain the difference between tribal law and federal Indian law and be able to assess when tribal law research should be performed.
2. Participants will be able to identify and use relevant resources for tribal law research.

American Indian tribal law is an area of law that is not well understood, and tribal law research resources are generally limited and little known. During this workshop tribal law research experts and practitioners will share their knowledge about this area of law and guide hands-on research projects using online resources. The workshop will focus on describing and demonstrating resources that are currently available or in development, and how to use them. Participants will also learn about the special legal relationships between sovereign Indian nations, states, and the federal government; why tribes and tribal courts may be reluctant to share their information; the transient nature of tribal governments; and tribal law publication policies and practices.
