Columbia NALSA Hosts Lunch Discussion of U.S. v. Bryant

On Wednesday, April 20, Columbia Law School’s NALSA chapter hosted Professor Barbara Creel and Professor John LaVelle from the University of New Mexico School of Law. Professors Creel and LaVelle filed briefs as amici curiae in the case of U.S. v. Bryant, heard by the Supreme Court on April 19, 2016. This case involves Native American Rights within the criminal justice system and will determine whether the use of valid uncounseled tribal-court misdemeanor convictions in a domestic violence case violates the Constitution.

The event was co-sponsored by The Domestic Violence Project, American Constitution Society, and the Columbia Law ACLU.
