Lieff Cabraser is a proud sponsor of the upcoming 18th Annual Indigenous Law Conference, hosted by the Tribal In-House Counsel Association and the Indigenous Law and Policy Center at Michigan State University. This year’s event will take place November 4 & 5 on Zoom.

Held annually, the goal of the 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.

The conference will feature a keynote speech and eight panels over the course of two days covering a diverse set of topics including, “Party or Amicus? Deciding When Your Tribal Nation Should Participate in Litigation,” “Shifting the Balance of Power: Self Governance and Consultation,” and “Beyond Brackeen: Ongoing Protections for Indian Children,” among others.
