Elimination of Bias in the Practice of Federal Indian Law: Attorneys who do not practice Federal Indian law but have dealings with Tribes may have minimal exposure to and understanding of Indian law, and/or preconceived notions about Tribal laws, Tribal attorneys, and Tribal leaders in comparison to their American counterparts.
