The American Indian Graduate magazine published in its Spring 2009 issue Judy Nichols’ article about the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law Indian Legal Program’s recent workshop, “Genomics, Governance, and Indigenous Peoples.” 

The two-day workshop in November included a dozen scholars from around the world who met to discuss the promise and perils of current efforts to transform indigenous people’s governance of genomic research. It was organized by Rebecca Tsosie, the ILP’s Executive Director, Kim TallBear, Assistant Professor of Science, Technology and Environmental Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, and Jenny Reardon, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Faculty Affiliate in the Center for Biomolecular Science and Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
