Established in 1973, the American Indian Law Review is nationally and internationally acclaimed, and specializes in issues of law affecting Native American tribes and indigenous peoples. To that end, our focus often overlaps with numerous other areas of law, such as human rights, international, and constitutional law. Our work is frequently cited in federal Indian law opinions written by judges across the country, including opinions written by judges and justices of the United States Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of the United States. The AILR further provides students the opportunity to write and publish academic articles, and to hone their editing skills, preparing them well to contribute to writing in the legal profession.
