Federal Indian Law: Tribal Code Development Assistance Project

The Yurok Tribe is the largest federally recognized Native nation in California. Students will assist the client, the Yurok Tribal Attorney’s Office, by conducting research related to drafting tribal taxation code. The exact scope and nature of the research will be determined in consultation with the client. Students will produce policy research memos to share internally with the client. Because of the topic’s complexity, coursework or background in federal Indian law or taxation is preferred but not required.
