This two-unit seminar course focuses on how tribal attorneys and other advocates can assist contemporary tribal governments in achieving political, cultural, and economic self-determination. Tribal self-determination requires the development of effective means for the exercise of tribal sovereign powers. These means include the development of effective tribal justice systems, tribal governmental institutions, tribal administrative agencies, and tribal natural and cultural resource protection programs.
