NATIONAL INDIAN LAW LIBRARY WORKS WITH PROMINENT LAW LIBRARY ASSOCIATION AND AWARD WINNING PUBLISHER TO PRODUCE LANDMARK INDIAN LAW CASES

BOULDER, CO – The National Indian Law Library (NILL) is proud to announce that the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL), along with William S. Hein & Company, has produced its legal publication, Landmark Indian Law Cases. AALL selected the latest edition of this book to be published as part of its AALL Publication Series after learning of its relevance and usefulness to the law community. William S. Hein & Company is the worlds largest distributor of legal periodicals.

Landmark Indian Law Cases presents fifty-three groundbreaking decisions made by the United States Supreme Court in the area of federal Indian law. Since 1988 when the book was first published, the Supreme Court has made new pronouncements on tribal hunting and fishing rights, Alaska Native tribal sovereignty, tribal sovereign immunity and tribal court jurisdiction.

"This edition brings together the most important Indian law cases as selected by nationally recognized Indian law experts. It is significant to lawyers, scholars, judges, and others who are practicing or teaching federal Indian law in the United States," says David Selden, NILL Law Librarian.

The cases contained in this book represent decisions that resolved important questions and set forth principles of federal Indian law that currently affect American Indian and Alaska Native tribes. The books subject index of cases provides a quick reference aid listing all cases under one or more relevant subject headings.

"Landmark Indian Law Cases is an excellent legal research tool and an outstanding addition to any North American Indian Law collection," says Paul Dumansky, a marketing representative at William S. Hein. The book is $95.00 and it can be ordered through the William S. Hein website at www.wshein.com. A percentage of proceeds from the book sales will benefit the National Indian Law Library.
