Who should attend: All who focus on Indigenous legal issues, including lawyers in private practice, industry and government; Indigenous leaders, employees of First Nations or First Nations organizations, in-house counsel and law students.
Learning level: All levels
This conference will be of interest to anyone involved in legal issues respecting Indigenous peoples, and to everyone interested in building constructive partnerships in Canada. You will learn from scholars and practitioners of Indigenous law about the legal principles and concepts underlying Indigenous legal orders, as well as about the importance of Indigenous legal processes and institutions. You will hear of existing applications of Indigenous law and join in the exploration of what it means to establish a pluralistic approach to legal problem-solving in Canada. You are invited to join this conversation, both theoretical and practical, about how Indigenous legal traditions and the Common Law might productively co-exist.
