On November 5 and 6, Wisconsin Law Review will gather the nation’s top experts, judges, practitioners, and tribal leaders to host its 2021 symposium on the Restatement of the Law, the Law of American Indians. Co-sponsored by The American Law Institute, the symposium seeks to provide a transparent and open forum for local, state, and national academics, practitioners, law professors and students, and non-legal parties to engage in an informative and substantive discussion of federal Indian law, its component practice areas, and the future impact of the Restatement on the American Indian law practice.   

The event will include five sessions structured around the chapters of the Restatement including: (1) The federal-tribal relationship, (2) State powers and the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, (3) tribal powers (4) tribal criminal law and jurisdiction, and (5) tribal country resources and economics.
