Southwest Indian Law Clinic - Indian Law Program

In the Southwest Indian Law Clinic (SILC), student attorneys represent Native clients in state, federal, and tribal courts and in governmental agency hearings. Students also have the opportunity to work with tribes, pueblos, and organizations serving the Native American community.

SILC faculty emphasize community involvement and sensitivity, collaborative lawyering, and multi-disciplinary problem solving. Indian Law is a prerequisite for the Southwest Indian Law Clinic. SILC is a required component of the Indian Law Certificate Program.
