NORMAN – Professor Lindsay Robertson, faculty director, University of Oklahoma College of Law Center for the Study of American Indian Law and Policy, has entered into an academic cooperation agreement with Mita Banerjee, director, Center for Comparative Native and Indigenous Studies at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany.
The two universities agreed to strengthen their relationship and explore the joint production of scholarship. OU Law’s Center provides counsel to tribal, state and national policymakers and a forum for the interdisciplinary discussion and resolution of problems facing indigenous communities in the United States. The Center at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz focuses on conducting indigenous studies from an interdisciplinary perspective, linking indigenous issues explored in the humanities to similar studies in the law and life sciences.
Both groups intend to combine their efforts in order to better fulfill their missions.
“This partnership will create a unique, international opportunity for students, allowing for further expansion in their studies of indigenous peoples,” Professor Robertson said.

I have never eaten a spicier meal than the hot pot I had with new friends from other law schools in Indiana and Peru after we explored the Summer Palace in Beijing. We put strips of raw chicken, beef, pork, tripe, and vegetables into the boiling pot of broth our waitress set at the table, cooking them quickly before dipping them in a delicious sauce.
