$1.2 Million Federal Grant Will Help Tribes Build Legal Infrastructure
Indigenous communities face enormous challenges and obstacles in their efforts to exercise self-governance. For various reasons, they must often depend on a limited pool of outside experts who can promote, negotiate for and secure their legal rights. Improving the internal capacity to govern and advocate for themselves on important policy issues is a goal shared by tribes and the U.S. Government, which recently awarded the College of Law $1.2 million to train local American Indian and other indigenous community leaders and serve as a policy resource to indigenous communities. The funds will support the efforts of the College’s unique Indigenous Peoples Law & Policy Program (IPLP).

There is a wide array of activities under discussion, all of which will involve responding to expressed tribal needs for executive training and legal services. A multidisciplinary approach will draw on the University’s strengths in key development areas, including training workshops that will focus on executive education, tribal leadership, improvement of tribal courts and law enforcement personnel, and the organic development of programs to manage natural resources, housing, education and public works. As the project unfolds, information will be available on the IPLP website at www.law.arizona.edu.

The University of Arizona is the world’s leading academic center for the study of indigenous peoples’ cultures, histories, languages, laws, and human rights. With the Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy (NNI) and other campus programs, IPLP is building the capacity to transform this very important area of law. For details, contact Marina Hadjioannou, IPLP Program Coordinator, at mhadjioannou@law.arizona.edu .
