The Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy (IPLP) Program is part of The University of Arizona's tradition of excellence, which includes academic centers such as American Indian Studies and Anthropology and community outreach centers such as the Native Nations Institute and the Native Peoples Technical Assistance Office. What makes IPLP unique is its approach to education. Students are educated both in the classroom and the real world, by faculty who are leaders both in their academic field and in the community. Faculty pass these values of community service along to their students.
The University of Arizona Rogers College of Law is also the only law school offering all three law degrees (JD, LLM and SJD) with a concentration in Indian and Indigenous peoples law.
The University of Arizona's Native Nations Institute and Indigenous Peoples Law & Policy Program, the world's leading experts in Indigenous law and governance, have joined together to offer a continuing education program in Indigenous Governance.
