LAW 1101: Native/American Constitutional Law
Spring 2024 • Section 21 • CRN 53131

Course Description

The United States is composed of not only state governments and federal governments, but also Native governments. Each category of government is recognized under the U.S. Constitution, and each category has claimed constitutional autonomy or semi-autonomy status from one another, to different degrees, in different ways, under different circumstances. This seminar uses legal history to understand the construction and intersection of different constitutional authorities over time: federal, Native, and state. The United States and its Constitution have been centrally concerned with various Native peoples from the beginning. Native populations have also remained dramatically, often tragically, affected by growth and success of the United States and its Constitution. This seminar presumes that the best ideas about what can and should be done in the future will require some familiarity with what has happened in the past.
