Instructor(s): Dworkin

Course Description:
This seminar will focus on a wide range of tribal economic development issues. Relevant federal case law, statutes, regulations, and case studies will be used as background material, but the primary purpose of the seminar will be to describe and analyze the political, legal, economic, structural, and cultural issues faced by tribes when trying to develop their economies. Additional emphasis will be placed on how tribal initiatives may conflict with federal case law, state jurisdiction, and federal policies towards tribal economic development. The seminar's focus will be on helping identify and implement creative tribal-based solutions. Although the relevant federal Indian case law will be discussed when necessary, having taken a course in Federal Indian law will be helpful.
