The University of Washington School of Law sponsors an annual Indian Law symposium each September. In 2003, an Eastern Washington Law Conference was begun.
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 to date) are indexed several ways:
- detailed and condensed subject headings, borrowed from the Current Index to Legal Periodicals
- tribes that have appeared in the presentation titles or were readily apparent from the presentation handouts.
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 at KF8224.C6W47 (Classified Stacks) and from the Eastern Washington Indian Law Conference at KFW505.A75E58 (Classified Stacks)
For more information about these programs, visit the UW School of Law's Continuing Legal Education website. For information on Indian law research in Washington, see Penny Hazelton's chapter of the Washington Legal Researcher's Deskbook 3d and the Gallagher guide on Indian Law Research.
