Note that tribes are extra-constitutional, and that the Freedom of Information Act does not apply in gaining access to tribal law.
For more information, visit the UNM Law Library Indian Law Research Guide: Tribal Resources.
Search our UNM School of Law Library catalog for tribal court opinions, handbooks, and other materials that our library has in print, such as the Indian Law Reporter, reporters of individual tribes, West's Indian Law Reporter, etc.
Various commercial databases will also provide access to select opinions from a range of tribes. Below are databases with tribal court opinions that you have access to as a law student.
Note that in accessing tribal opinions via Westlaw or Lexis, you will have the benefit of the enhancements that those databases provide, such as headnotes (Lexis and Westlaw) and the American Digest System topic and key numbers (Westlaw) attached to those opinions.
