Tribal Government E-Commerce: Innovating a New Geography of Indian Country CLE Conference – Feb 12-13, 2015

Many tribes have recently become involved in pursuing business operated over the Internet.  These E-Commerce opportunities have not only created thriving economies, but they have also led to a tangled web of legal issues where state, tribal and federal laws and policies are colliding. The quick growth of E-Commerce in Indian Country has outpaced a general understanding of how E-Commerce law is intertwined with federal Indian law especially as it may relate to States’ rights.

The goal of this conference is to explore the legal issues surrounding the development of E-Commerce in Indian Country including: jurisdictional complexities and the necessity of fostering open dialogue with federal and state counterparts, the possible implications to tribal sovereignty, and the ongoing need for tribes to build infrastructures that facilitate economic growth on their reservations while complying with appropriate federal guidelines.

This conference will bring together tribal leaders and officials, lawyers practicing in Indian country, on and off reservation economic planning and development experts, business and finance specialists, virtual casino managers and executives, online vendors and entrepreneurs, regulatory experts and cutting‐edge scholars to explore the legal issues of tribal E-Commerce.
