2023 Clifford Smith Memorial Lecture

Indigenous Law and Conversation Across Generations

Presented by:

Dr. Val Napoleon

Dr. Val Napoleon is Acting Dean of the Law Faculty of the University of Victoria and the founder of the JD/JID Program, which combines two professional degrees:  one in Canadian Common Law and one in Indigenous Legal Orders


“With this talk, I would like to provoke a range of perceptions and questions about the role and function of law in Indigenous civic society in the past and today. Why are critical and productive conversations important, and how do we understand legitimacy? How are we all legal agents, and how might we draw on stories to reinvigorate law.”
