Federal Indian Law (20038). 3 units. This course will examine the trajectory of legal relations between Native American tribes and the federal and state governments. Particular attention will be given to shifting federal policies, tribal sovereignty and legislative competence, constitutional rights, tribal membership, criminal law (including the evolving jurisdiction of tribal courts following enactment of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013), family law, taxation, gaming, and the protection of natural and cultural resources. The American experience will be evaluated in light of the 2007 United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the case law of other countries with indigenous populations, and decisions of international human rights bodies. There may be a field trip to one of the Connecticut reservations. Self-scheduled examination. E. R. Fidell.
