The Native American Law Section of the State Bar of Texas is having its annual Native American Law Conference next week, and I'll be speaking there. The Conference is Friday, January 29, at the Texas Law Center in Austin. My topic is "Marijuana Legalization for Tribes and the Department of Justice Policy Statement Regarding Marijuana Issues in Indian Country."
There are some other hot-topic issues up for discussion at the conference, including Native American rights under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, ethics issues in tribal justice, updates on the Indian Child Welfare Act, and a panel on issues around use of Native American mascots.
