The Restatement Third, The Law of American Indians, aims to cement a set of generally agreed-upon foundational principles that could shape further developments in the field. Topics to be considered include federal/tribal relations, state/tribal relations, tribal jurisdiction and authority, and Indian Country business law. Matthew L. M. Fletcher of Michigan State University College of Law has been appointed Reporter for the project. Wenona T. Singel, also of Michigan State, and Kaighn Smith, Jr., of Drummond Woodsum in Portland, ME, will serve as Associate Reporters. View the lists of project participants.
