Study Indian law this summer! The Alexander Blewett III School of Law invites you to participate in the 13th annual Summer American Indian and Indigenous Law Program, June 1-July 24, 2020.

This year we are offering remotely instructed courses with a faculty comprised of expert Indian law scholars and practitioners from around the country. Participants in the program may choose from any of the courses or take them all. Courses are cross-listed for graduate credit. These courses are self-supporting with no state tuition expense, so tuition waivers will not apply.

Approved by the Montana CLE Commission, each course will yield 13.75 continuing legal education credits for practicing attorneys. Register on Eventbrite for CLE.

Missouri River Field Course (in conjunction with Freeflow Institute)

Governance of the Upper Missouri River, and the prairie communities through which it flows, is as complex as the history, laws and customs that have shaped the place. By canoe and on foot, participants will encounter this complexity firsthand while studying the planning, policy and people of this unique American landscape. Our shared dialogue will consider deep questions: How do cultural narratives shape and inform the challenges of managing this singular ecosystem? What role do Indian tribes and their members play in management decisions, both on and off of their reservations? How do we identify a common vision for repairing and restoring a fragmented system? This summer, contribute your voice to the discussion and immerse yourself physically and intellectually in this unfolding story of the West.
