    Lexis Advance offers a substantial collection of Native American Law materials including tribal constitutions, codes, treaties, court opinions and other primary and secondary legal materials. In this training session, our Lexis trainer will explore relevant federal laws, including how to deep dive into Congressional documents and treaties. Attendees will discover troves of tribal primary law; how fill in the spaces with Cohen's Handbook of Federal Indian Law and delve into analytical options for emerging issues including Oil & Gas, Water Rights, and Eminent Domain. Our trainer will also bring law and analysis together for Key Topics including Tribal Sovereign Immunity and the Indian Child Welfare Act.
