Tsosie quoted on adding Indian law to bar exam

October 05, 2009

Rebecca Tsosie, executive director of the Indian Legal Program, was quoted in a recent Associated Press article, "In Arizona, push for Indian law on state bar exam."

In the article, published on Sept. 27, reporter Felicia Fonseca, writes that there is a push to add American Indian law to the Arizona bar exam, in part because more than a quarter of the state's land is controlled by the 22 tribes that reside within Arizona's borders.

"You need to know the rules that apply in case some incident arises on that 25 percent of the land," Tsosie said. "That's just what a competent lawyer should know."
