Tribal Governmental Business Law CLE Institute
Location: Sullivan Hall, Room 309
This institute prepares tribal lawyers and business professionals, as well as those who transact business with tribal entities, for new legal challenges with Indian tribes. New challenges that are encountered as Indian tribes develop diversified economies and engage in increasingly complex commercial transactions both on and off Indian lands.
The institute meets in-person or via webinar eight times from September 2011 to April 2012. The institute is offered through the law school's Center for Indian Law and Policy and Continuing Legal Eduction program. It is the first certificate program of its kind offered in the country.
