Federal Indian Law: Yurok Legal Assistance (807A)

Students will assist the client, the Office of the Tribal Attorney of the Yurok Tribe (the largest federally recognized Native nation in California), by conducting legal research on a variety of possible topics, including code writing, homeowner policies, tribal water rights, data sovereignty, and anti-discrimination policy. The exact scope and nature of the research will be determined in consultation with the client. Students will produce policy memos based on their research to share with the client. Coursework or background in federal Indian law is helpful but not required. The project will involve the opportunity to present virtually to the office of the tribal attorney and possibly the tribal council.
