Indigenous Methodologies and Perspectives will build on material and skills learned during first year law courses. The class will be taught in a comparable manner to 1L Systems and Methods. It will also interact with cases discussed in 1L Constitutional Law. The course will discuss past and contemporary reconciliation efforts. We will survey common law “Aboriginal law” cases as well as Indigenous Legal Orders. The course will be taught in lecture/discussion format to convey critical information including historical context, background, and theory. Small group discussions will be part of each class. Guest speakers may present when/where available, to provide students with practical interaction with leaders or experts in their field relevant to the course syllabus. This syllabus provides a roadmap for the topics we will cover and some associated readings. Other readings may be announced week by week in collaboration with any visitors we may have for the course.
