ILTF is pleased to announce that Matthew Fletcher, Professor of Law and Director of the Indigenous Law & Policy Center at Michigan State University College of Law, will be presenting at the June 11th Native Land Law CLE. Professor Fletcher will be discussing treaties.

Professor Fletcher recently published the sixth edition of Cases and Materials on Federal Indian Law (Thomson West 2011) with David Getches, Charles Wilkinson, and Robert Williams and American Indian Tribal Law (Aspen 2011), the first casebook for law students on tribal law. Fletcher’s book, The Return of the Eagle: The Legal History of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, was released by Michigan State University Press in 2012. Professor Fletcher has published articles with Arizona Law Review, Harvard Journal on Legislation, Hastings Law Journal, University of Colorado Law Review, Houston Law Review, Tulane Law Review, and many others. He is the primary editor and author of Turtle Talk, the leading law blog on American Indian law and policy.

The Native Land Law CLE series provides an overview of the 17 legal principles outlined in the legal treatise, Native Land Law: General Principles of Law Relating to Native Lands and Natural Resources, and offers analysis of federal laws and policies that impact the field of Indian law today. Professor Fletcher will offer his own insights into the significance of treaties during this month’s two-hour program.

The CLE will be offered from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. (CST) on Tuesday, June 11th.
