You will be ahead of the curve.”

William Mitchell’s Indian Law Program emphasizes practical legal education. Students learn from professors who have spent their careers working with Indian tribes.  Our Indian law professors have worked for the U.S. Department of Justice, non-profit corporations providing technical assistance to tribes, large law firms with Indian law practices, boutique firms focusing solely on Indian law, and Indian tribes themselves.  They are scholars and practitioners with real-world experience.

Our program is unique because our professors provide students with a high degree of individual attention. We will work with you to create a course of study that is tailored to your specific interests and career goals.
