American Indian Law Journal Home
The American Indian Law Journal (AILJ) is an academic collaboration among students, faculty, and practitioners. The AILJ is designed to fill a critical gap in the amount of current scholarship available to those interested in the rapidly developing field of Indian law. The AILJ has employed an innovative online format since publishing Volume 0, Issue 1 in 2011.

Indian law concerns a wide range of legal issues, including without limitation constitutional, tax, property, contracts, gaming, intellectual property, and environmental law. Consequently, the American Indian Law Journal (AILJ) provides students with a practical and marketable skill set while exemplifying Seattle University School of Law's commitment to social justice. Notably, American Indians and Alaska Natives have been marginalized and persecuted throughout our country's history, and unfortunately, these themes of prejudice and injustice persist today. Indian law implicates a myriad of social justice concerns, including civil rights violations, protection of cultural resources, religious freedom, the loss of land and natural resources, and the regulation of environmental quality. Despite these numerous issues, there are only two dedicated Indian law journals in North America.
Dedicated in developing the apex of Indian law advocates, the AILJ thanks you for visiting us and encourages you to subscribe to receive our email updates!
