MSU Cohen Legacy Panel

MSU's Indigenous Law and Policy Center will be hosting a panel (or two) as part of its book series on the continuing legacy of Felix Cohen and his impact on Indian law and policy. Three recent books will be discussed. The panel will probably take place on March 28, 2008 here in East Lansing.

First, of course, the panel will feature discussion of the 2005 edition of Cohen's Handbook of Federal Indian Law. Sam Deloria and EIC Nell Newton, dean and chancellor of Hastings law school, are scheduled to appear.

Second, Dalia Tsuk Mitchell of George Washington law school and author of "Architect of Justice: Felix S. Cohen and the Founding of American Legal Pluralism" (Cornell) will appear.

Third, and by no means last, Christian McMillen of the University of Virginia and author of "Making Indian Law: The Hualapai Land Case and the Birth of Ethnohistory" (Yale) will appear as well.
