“The American Indian Law Clinic is excited to collaborate with NILL for the Indian Law Bulletin, in the spirit of our longstanding relationship with the Native American Rights Fund. Tribal jurisprudence is a vital component of Indian law for lawyers, judges, and students alike, and this bulletin will ensure access to these important legal resources.”
– Carla Fredericks, Director
Colorado Law School’s American Indian Law Clinic and Program
The National Indian Law Library (NILL), in partnership with the University of Colorado Law School Indian Law Clinic, is pleased to introduce the new Tribal Courts Bulletin. This new bulletin will feature selected tribal court opinions of value to Indian law practitioners, educators, and students. The Tribal Courts Bulletin will complement the state and federal case bulletins published by NILL since 2001.
To date, the NILL Indian Law Bulletins have focused primarily on federal and state law relating to Native Americans. By adding some of the most important current tribal court opinions, NILL strives to offer a more complete Indian law update service.
See the new bulletin along with our other Indian Law Bulletins at http://www.narf.org/nill/bulletins/ and read about the selection and publishing criteria at http://www.narf.org/nill/bulletins/tribal/about.html. As with all of our bulletins, you can search for past materials using the search features on our website. We welcome your comments on this new bulletin.
