Federal Indian Law is an introduction to federal law about Indian Nations. It explores the treaties, statutes, regulations, and common law and constitutional doctrines that govern the relationship between the United States and Indian Nations. The course will focus upon three major topics: the treaty system and the trust relationship between the United States and Indian Nations; Tribal sovereignty, including jurisdiction in Indian Country and the plenary power doctrine; and Indian property rights. Though the focus will be upon domestic federal law, the course will also consider Indian Nations’ powers and rights as sovereigns under international law and the rights of Native Peoples under Indigenous human rights law. In addition to introducing students to the doctrines and principles of Federal Indian Law, this course will explore questions concerning the role of the government attorney and the role of litigation as a vehicle for social and political change.
