Event description

Description

Tribal nations are at the center of environmental battles today. Federal approval of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the reduction of the Bears Ears National Monument favor oil extraction over tribal environmental and cultural concerns. The U.S. Supreme Court divides over whether treaty fishing rights prevent blocking waterways and damaging the fish resource. Tribes increasingly control natural resources on their reservations, but struggle with both federal control and how best to regulate for the seventh generation. In the Northeast, tribes face long periods of non-recognition, increased state regulation, and concerns about environmental impacts of Indian gaming. Climate change, meanwhile, threatens indigenous communities and cultural practices across the globe. We invite you to the 2018 Connecticut Law Review Symposium to join keynote speaker Ethel Branch, Attorney General of the Navajo Nation, and other tribal leaders, attorneys, and scholars in exploring all of these issues.

The day ends with an ice cream reception and discussion. RSVP by October 22 at law.uconn.edu/7gen18

Continental breakfast and lunch will be served. Eligibile for Connecticut CLE credit. This event is free for students, faculty, and staff; $40 for practitioners and other guests. Parking $3/day.
