September 5, 2019

By Bruce McIvor

Welcome to the homepage for Law 358D.003: Topics in First Nations Law: Current Legal Issues, which I'm teaching during the 2019 fall semester at the University of British Columbia's Allard School of Law.

I'll be updating this page as the semester progresses.

While the information is primarily intended for students enrolled in my class, hopefully others will also find it interesting and helpful.

Class Syllabus

The class syllabus can be found here. It will be updated occasionally if there are changes due to the availability of our guest speakers.

Background Materials

Students are expected to have a basic familiarity with the main issues in Aboriginal law. The following materials may be helpful for those who require a refresher.
