Moot Court

Read about the 2016-17 NALSA and Cultural Heritage Moot Court teams, who recently competed at nationals.

42nd Annual Indian Law Conference (Fed Bar)

Tribes today stand at the threshold of an uncertain future, and the recent conflict regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline has highlighted many aspects of tribal sovereignty that need to be bolstered internally and externally to address coming challenges. From environmental protection and cultural resources to reservation boundaries and civil liberties, the Conference will examine how Tribes can best support the pillars of sovereignty both on and off the reservation in this uncertain era.

This conference, "Fed Bar," is a unique opportunity to meet other students interested in Indian law, network with Indian law faculty and professionals, and learn from that year’s theme. With an empowering environment, full of educational opportunities, strength, and resiliency, Fed Bar is a once in a lifetime experience. Being a once in a lifetime experience, NALSA is only able to provide funding for a limited number of individuals to attend.
