MLS Indigenous Peoples Law Overview

Located in the heart of the original Indian Territory, the OU College of Law provides an ideal environment for the study of Native American law and issues concerning indigenous peoples. The MLS in Indigenous Peoples Law builds on the American Indian Law Certificate offered to juris doctor students, but has been specifically designed by the OU Law faculty for non-lawyers whose careers demand an understanding of the complex rules of Federal Indian law.

This program offers an accelerated program (15 months) that can be taken entirely online. This program offers a strong foundation in Native American Law for anyone who deals with contracts, negotiations or any other issues that demand knowledge of Native American self-governance issues, policy, regulation or business practice.
