Stanford Law School

After centuries of being marginalized within legal academia and the legal field more broadly, tribal law is finally having its moment at Stanford Law. In March, Stanford Law Review published Professor Elizabeth Reese’s The Other American Law, a groundbreaking article that calls for the situation of tribal law within the mainstream study of American law and legal systems. And in April, Stanford Law School announced the hiring of Professor Reese as an assistant professor of law and its first-ever Native American faculty member. Come join Stanford NALSA as we hear from Professor Reese and an esteemed panel of legal scholars on the significance of Professor Reese’s tribal law scholarship and her historic hiring!
