"The ILP is an important asset to the political aspect of the Indian community because it creates young practitioners who understand the critical nuances within the field of federal Indian law.  This is evident when one simply takes a look at the current positions held by past ILP graduates, and the projects and accomplishments they've completed and/or accumulated within their careers."

The ASU College of Law's Indian Legal Program is best out there. From the classroom lectures to interacting with real clients and arguing before judges, the program offers an extraordinary breadth of intellectual training and practical experience. The program's staff are not just the nicest people around but they are seasoned legal experts that are on the cutting edge of what is happening in Indian Country. There is no one word that could describe my experience in the ILP but the one that comes closest is probably "amazing." The faculty and staff were like family to me, and the curriculum shaped how I approach my work today. ASU's ILP exceeded my expectations in every way.
