LAW B 584 Indigenous Governance Law

Credits: 2-6, Max 6

British colonial policies alternated between recognition of the sovereignty of Indigenous communities and their dominion over people and territory and efforts to limit or extinguish Indigenous sovereignty using force, treaties, and the imposition of law. This course provides a framework for understanding the contemporary laws of former British colonies with respect to the sovereignty of Indigenous communities; the grounding of those laws in the history of modern nations as colonies of Great Britain and the historical and contemporary impacts of settler colonialism on the governance of Indigenous communities. Enrollment is limited to students who have taken A565 or who secure permission from the instructor.
