The University of Washington School of Law sponsors an annual Indian Law symposium each September. In 2003 and 2004, Eastern Washington Law Conferences were held but were then discontinued.
The purpose of these events is to bring together experts to present and discuss current issues in the field of Indian Law. The programs are designed to benefit attorneys who have Indian clients or whose clients deal with Indians or tribal governments, as well as for those who have a strong interest in the current issues of Indian Law.
Presentations given at the symposia (1987 to date) and conferences (2003 and 2004) are indexed several ways:
These indexes have been compiled to provide easy access to the topics that have been covered. Indexing is based on the published CLE materials that participants received and which are available at at the Gallagher Law Library.
Materials from the Indian Law symposia are found in the Classified Stacks at KF8224.C6W47 and from the Eastern Washington Indian Law Conference at KFW505.A75E58.
