Indian Law Certificate Program
The University of North Dakota School of Law Indian Law Certificate Program rewards students who take at least 17 credits of the many classes offered concerning Indian Law and Tribal Law at the Law School with special recognition. Students who fulfill the requirements of the program receive a certificate of acknowledgment, a notation of completion of the program on their transcript, and the opportunity to signal their commitment to and command of an increasingly important and expanding area of law.
"We are thrilled to offer this opportunity to our students," says Kathryn Rand, Dean of UND Law and an expert on Indian Gaming Law. "We have a talented core of nationally recognized faculty who have committed themselves to the diverse and important field of Indian Law and who are dedicated to educating the next generation of leaders in Indian Country."
James Grijalva, the Lloyd and Ruth Friedman Professor of Law, an expert on environmental issues in Indian Country, is the program's director sees the program as helping the School of Law have a positive impact in state of North Dakota and across the country: "I believe that this program will not only benefit our students but Indian Country as a whole."
