Regardless of your practice area, you may intentionally or unintentionally run into an intersection with Indian law. For example, if you practice commercial law, you may have business dealings with a tribal entity. If you are a family law practitioner, the Indian Child Welfare Act may impact one of your cases. If you are a criminal lawyer, you may run into jurisdictional issues on tribal land or when a victim or defendant is a tribal member. If you are in construction or real estate law, you may be faced with cultural resources issues on a property site. If you practice in natural resources or environmental law, you may need to navigate treaties and other tribal rights. The list goes on. This CLE class will provide an overview and brief introduction of the top ten things that all attorneys should know about Indian law. Join our speakers Stephanie Striffler, Oregon Department of Justice and Tim Simmons, US Department of Justice for this two-hour seminar.
