Indigenous law issues touch upon a widening area of legal practices each year, both in the public and private sectors. As awareness of matters relating to resource ownership and management grows, and these issues become prominent in a public way, there is greater scrutiny and discussion about the role and rights of Indigenous peoples in Canada. In these programs, our presenters look at a wide range of topics relevant to lawyers who deal with these matters, with a public and a private law lens. They pass on to you the knowledge that you need to provide timely and pertinent legal information and advice to your clients.

  • Learn about the First Nations Fiscal Management Act and the role of the First Nations Financial Authority and the First Nations Tax Commission
  • Get an overview of Indigenous health care issues
  • Hear about Indian Act elected councils versus traditional governments
