352.001 Aboriginal Peoples and Canadian Law
This course applies to the Specialization in Aboriginal Law.
This course builds on the module on Aboriginal and treaty rights in Constitutional Law, focusing on some issues covered in that course in more detail and looking at topics not usually covered in the constitutional law context (such as issues that come up under the Indian Act, the content of modern treaties, the negotiation of impact benefit agreements, matters of child and family welfare and problems plaguing the criminal justice system).
