Tribal Courts and Tribal Law 355-2I

November 04, 2015

This course examines the developing body of tribal court jurisprudence and tribal law.  The basic approach will be to study and analyze various tribal court decisions dealing with important and diverse issues of tribal law such as tribal constitutions, tribal membership, tribal elections, civil rights, criminal law, family law, property law, contracts and torts.


The American Bar Association accreditation standards require students to regularly attend the courses in which they are registered. Lewis & Clark expects students to attend classes regularly and to prepare for classes conscientiously. Specific attendance requirements may vary from course to course. Any attendance guidelines for a given class must be provided to students in a syllabus or other written document at the start of the semester. Sanctions (e.g., required withdrawal from the course, grade adjustment, and/or a failing grade) will be imposed for poor attendance.
