New Scholarship on American Indian Probate Reform Act

David Armstrong has published “Estate Planning for American Indians: AIPRA for the General Practitioner” (PDF) in the Denver University Law Review Online.

An excerpt:

Indian law is sometimes viewed as niche practice area limited to those who work directly with tribes or those who work on or near a reservation.  Despite this perception the general practitioner regardless of where they work should have passing familiarity with laws which affect tribal members who often reside outside of reservations.  Two primary examples of this are the Indian Child Welfare Act and the American Indian Probate Reform Act (AIPRA).  While the former is a subject worthy of an extended discussion this article will focus exclusively on AIPRA and related acts which effect the estate plans of American Indians wherever they live.
