Tribal Law and Government Conference

The Future of Indian Education
Each year, KU hosts the Tribal Law & Government Conference, which devotes significant scholarly attention to the study of organic tribal law, modern tribal governments and the evolution of tribal common law. The conference highlights how works of scholars and tribal jurists addressing the emerging and historical problems of indigenous law and governance are critical to strengthening tribal sovereignty. The 2015 Tribal Law & Government Conference will discuss the status quo of Indian education and how it might change in the future based on President Obama's recent commitment to reform.
