Lieff Cabraser Co-Sponsors 17th Annual ILPC/TICA Indigenous Law Conference

Hosted by the Tribal In-House Counsel Association and the Indigenous Law and Policy Center at Michigan State University, the 2020 Indigenous Law Conference will take place November 10, 12, and 13 on Zoom.

Held annually, the goal of the Indigenous Law conference is to bring speakers together from around the country to discuss issues involving indigenous justice systems, tribal sovereignty, and self-determination. A collaborative partnership with TICA in 2015 has allowed the Indigenous Law Conference to be a cutting edge event led by those in the field, In-House Counsel: some of the most important people working for tribal self-governance.

This year’s conference will feature six panel discussions over the course of three days covering a diverse set of topics including, “COVID-19 Related Litigation,” “Child Welfare and Social Services,” “Quarantine Issues and Their Enforcement,” “Oral Arguments Remotely, What Could Go Wrong?!,” “Voting Rights and The 2020 Election,” and “The McGirt Decision.”

Lieff Cabraser is a proud sponsor of the event.
