The College of Law is home to one of the highest concentrations of Native American students in the nation. These students represent tribes from across the country and Canada.

ASU ILP students have great opportunities.  Students have a large selection of Indian Law courses, great attorney networking opportunities because of the ILP's close relationships with alumni, the Indian Law Section of the State Bar of Arizona, and the Arizona Chapter of the Native American Bar Association, and a large selection of Indian law externship and internship options. 

The ASU law students have an active Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) and participate in the National Native American Law Students Association.  ASU NALSA hosts an annual golf tournament, participates in pro bono activities, mentors incoming students, and is the co-sponsor of the ILP/NALSA graduation.  Between the ASU chapter of NALSA and the ILP, students have an instant network to support them academically, professionally and socially.

Students listen to Lance Morgan, CEO of Ho-Chunk, Inc., discussing Indian Law and Economic Development.

Ten students from the Indian Legal Program at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law recently attended a special week-long course in Indian Law and Economic Development at the Ho-Chunk, Inc., headquarters in Winnebago, Neb.

The course was conducted by Lance Morgan, CEO of Ho-Chunk, Inc., and a practicing attorney who has taught a course for second-year law students in the Indian Legal Program on the Tempe campus each of the last several years.

This year, Morgan worked with Kate Rosier, Director of the Indian Legal Program, and Ann Marie Downes, Faculty Associate and an enrolled member of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, to bring the classroom into the “real world.”
