This seminar addresses a variety of contemporary theoretical and practical issues in federal Indian law, including natural and cultural resources associated with Indian lands, environmental regulation, water rights, economic development and gaming, and representation of Indian tribes in the state and region. Students are required to prepare a substantial paper. Readings are assigned to provide students with a legal and factual background on actual disputes in Indian country. Class sessions are devoted to discussion of analysis, and various approaches to resolution of the disputes

A course in the fundamentals of Indian Law is preferred. Alternatively, for those that have not taken Federal Indian Law, a willingness to do background reading of select materials in the field is an adequate substitute. Students with an interest in environmental law, environmental justice, land use planning, federal courts, litigation and negotiation are encouraged to enroll.
