The Indian Law Program of the Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana provides a relevant and thoughtful curriculum that integrates the substance of Federal Indian, Indigenous Peoples’, and Tribal Law with its practical and contemporary application in Montana, Indian Country, and beyond.

In doing so, we aim to honor the importance of our location; serve the governments and people of Indian Country; promote the study and understanding of tribal sovereignty, culture, and history in a culturally-appropriate manner; and support the enrollment and success of Native and all law students interested in the study of Federal Indian, Indigenous Peoples’ and Tribal Law.
