17th Annual Tribal Law & Government Conference

We invite you to join us for the 17th annual Tribal Law & Government Conference at the University of Kansas School of Law. This year's theme is climate change and its impact on indigenous peoples. The conference will also mark the domestic launch of the book Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples: The Search for Legal Remedies (Randall Abate & Elizabeth Ann Kronk eds., Edward Elgar Publishing, 2013). 6 hours of CLE credit (including 1 hour of ethics) has been approved in Kansas and Missouri, and lunch will be provided. The conference has reached capacity, and registration is now closed. As space allows, walk-in traffic may be accommodated on the day of the conference.
