American Indian Law

American Indian Law research is complex and challenging. This guide covers U.S. statutes, tribal codes, case law, and secondary sources.

Using Research Guides

Library guides are excellent starting places for legal research. Various organizations and universities have guides for novice researchers that provide sources and context for legal inquiries. Few guides are all-encompassing of a topic; however, by perusing enough guides, you can often find something that covers the specific question you are asking--it just takes a little leg work. Below is a list of helpful research guides from multiple organizations and universities that we suggest using if this guide fails to address your needs adequately.
