The successful development of vibrant and sustainable economies in Indian Country continues to present challenges for Indian tribes, their members and potential business partners, as well as federal, state and local governments. The unique legal status of Indian tribes and the consequences of that status inform these challenges and require a detailed examination of federal policy and Supreme Court jurisprudence. Thus, attorneys play a central role in understanding and advising their clients about the challenges of tribal economic development. Though within the broad rubric of economic development, this course will focus specifically on tribal business law, including the unique challenges tribes face when legislating and seeking to regulate business activity within Indian Country.
