The Tribal Law Journal (TBJ) at The University of New Mexico School of Law hosts a virtual symposium to discuss the impacts of the Seminal Supreme Court decision Johnson v. M'Intosh. The symposium is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.


The symposium, titled “200 years since Johnson v. M’Intosh: The Case’s Impact on Native Communities and Tribal Governments,” will consider Indigenous perspectives on this foundational case and include discussions of the Doctrine of Discovery and the impact on contemporary issues facing Native communities.

Articles produced for this symposium will be published in the upcoming issue of the Tribal Law Journal. The UNM Tribal Law Journal, like all journals in the field of law, are unique to those of other academic fields in that they are staffed and run by students, said Justin Lauriano, co-editor-in-chief of TLJ, and third-year law student at UNM.

"The Tribal Law Journal at the UNM School of Law is excited to host a symposium discussing the impacts of the Seminal Supreme Court decision Johnson v. M'Intosh. We are proud to welcome some of the most influential scholars in the field of Indian Law,” said Justin Lauriano and TLJ co-editor-in-chief Lauren Earls,

“We are eager to have a well-attended virtual event and to provide a forum for a robust discussion of the impacts of the historic Supreme Court case on tribes and tribal communities."
