I hope you do not mean "Native American Law," otherwise I wonder what you call individuals from India.

Native Americans call themselves American Indians.  THe former is a term apologists use to placate their guilt for profiting from America's subjugation of Indian nations throughout the US.

Dear Cornell:

You would be wise to take some simple advice: use simple words to convey direct messages. Pompous prose makes simple ideas and thoughts more complicated than they have to be. ;)

Try University of Oklahoma at Norman or University of Tulsa.

The University of New Mexico has a pretty good law program overall (ranked 69th, I think?) and has a lot of specialization in Indian law, due to the proximity of many tribes nearby.

Also, many people who are not native to the area find it to be beautiful, though not being the former I rather disagree :)

Good luck in your search!

University of Tulsa is good for that and it is easy to get into. It is the only school I applied to and I applied in June 2 months before school started and got 17,000 scholarship.  The school staff was great and when I visited the campus a lot was mentioned about Native American's and they even have a Native American Law Clinic so I would recommend them if Native America Law is what you want to specialize in.  I do not want to specialize in it and did not go, because Oklahoma is not for me. However, if Native American Law is for you then I would consider Tulsa.
