Curricular Offerings

As part of its ongoing mission to focus on the practice of law from a transactional perspective, the Center is developing curricular offerings for law students. These courses will be simulations that require students to apply knowledge that crosses the traditional segmentation of commercial and business law to solve realistic problems in a transactional setting.

Kalispel Commercial Code

The CLC and University Legal Assistance joined together to draft a commercial law code for the Kalispel Tribe. The project, modeled on Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, was designed to help attract commercial investment and facilitate commercial development on tribal property. The Kalispel Tribe formally adopted the new law in 2008.
