5th Annual Study Law in Alaska currently in session
by Kathleen McCoy |
The University of Alaska Anchorage, in cooperation with the Seattle University School
of Law, is currently offering its summer legal program, the 5th Annual Study Law in
Alaska. The course is in session now and ends on July 26.
Throughout the course, students explore the rights of Alaska Natives and environmental law. The first half of the course covers the rights, powers and immunities held by Alaska Natives, while the second half investigates the environmental and legal impacts of oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and wildlife preservation.
This course is made possible by the generous $1 million gift made by Father Stephen V. Sundborg, S.J. to launch the Alaska Program at the Seattle University School of Law. A $750,000 gift to the School of Law and another $250,000 to the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus will assist Alaska students desiring to study law at Seattle University.
