Title: Best schools for Indian Law?
Post by: gar598 on May 18, 2003, 04:01:29 AM
Anyone have any recommendation on schools which have a focus or offer courses in Indian Law?

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!

Hope thes sites help you with your findings... Good Luck!!

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.

They sure have a lot of attitude for a conquored race, don't they? ::)

They weren't even really conquered.  They were rescued from a life of unbelievable primitivism and drudgery.

Since even you're not this ignorant, Lindbergh, it's pretty clear you're just race baiting here.

So they weren't primitive before Columbus arrived?

Go F yourself.  If not for columbus, Indians would still be wallowing in their own filth.

Christ on a biscuit dig up a thread from five years  ago just to start bashing native Americans? Seriously, sometimes I can tolerate you, sometimes even get into conversations with you on a subject on which you make good points, which I will consider and respond to, but this is not one of those times. This is just stupid ignorant crap and personally attacking another poster and there is no room nor need for it on this board.

The way to specialize is by finding summer gigs that allow you to work in the area.  By the time you are applying to 2L summer jobs (that are hopefully your permanent offers 3L year), you will not have had an opportunity to take any classes in your "specialty."   It's also generally called tribal law, so you can avoid the whole Native American v. Indian debate. 



Actually, there's tribal law, which nowadays generally refers to the development and practice of law within tribal entities, and Federal Indian Law, which addresses the legal relationship between the US federal government and the "domestic-dependent" sovereign tribal governments.

If you look at firm practice areas, it's usually just called "tribal law" and includes energy/natural resources on tribal lands, law within the tribe, and the tribes' relationships with other entities outside of the tribe. 

The OP asked about law schools, not private law firms.

Actually, there's even more irony that the post was answered by someone who appears to have some fondness for Frank Baum.

Holy heck.

I read and loved all those books growing up. I had no idea  :-\

I did know there was some cross of gold/william jennings bryan stuff in there, though, so I guess it shouldn't be surprising that there was other heavy-handed symbolism going on, but still, yeesh.
