First Peoples Law is a law firm dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. We work closely with First Nations to defend their Aboriginal title, rights and Treaty rights, uphold their Indigenous laws and governance and ensure economic prosperity for their members.
Check out our latest podcast episode: Reclaiming the Law: Indigenous Law Students in Conversation, featuring First Peoples Law articled student Charlotte Rose in conversation with the first annual recipients of our Indigenous Law Student Scholarship.
First Peoples Law is hosting a series of “Kitchen Table Chats” for Indigenous people to share information and develop strategies to defend their title and rights and uphold their laws and governance. If you’d like to register for our upcoming session on governance and the applicability of the Charter, please email us at email@example.com with your contact information, position and the name of your organization/community.
