In the News, Courts, and Classrooms, Attention Turns to Federal Indian Law

June 16, 2023

When Lexie Holden ’25 was choosing a law school, she had two non-negotiables: a thriving Native American student organization and opportunities to study and put into practice federal Indian law.

She found both at Yale Law School, where she is now a member of the Native American Law Student Association and took introduction to Federal Indian law in her first year. 

“Knowing that Yale Law School offered multiple federal Indian law courses, as well as clinics where such knowledge would be relevant, made the decision to attend YLS even easier,” Holden said.

In recent years, the Law School has expanded its offerings federal Indian Law beyond an introductory course to include an advanced course and clinic. These additions reflect students’ growing and sometimes personal interest in the subject. And the courses reflect the relevance of a topic that cuts across nearly every area of law.
