National Aboriginal Law Section Newsletter - Call for Articles
We are pleased to announce the upcoming publication of Aboriginal Writes, the National Aboriginal Law Section's newsletter. We are now seeking short articles (300 - 1,000 words) to be submitted for review by the editors. The newsletter is an excellent way to profile your work and/or matters of interest and importance to the Aboriginal Law community.
Articles can include case comments, updates, or analysis of recent legislative developments or other matters of national interest. We also welcome your reflections on the recent National Aboriginal Law Section conference, "Working with and within Indigenous Legal Traditions." Please take a moment to consider writing a brief article, or to assess whether you have already written an article that would be suitable for submission.
Submissions in English or French can be sent to Jameela at: email@example.com prior to Thursday, June 27th, 2013.

CBA National Aboriginal Law Section submission on Bill C-428, the Indian Act Amendment and Replacement Act
While the CBA Section agrees that many of the proposed sections of the Indian Act should be repealed, its submission makes concrete suggestions pertaining to the proposed wills and estates amendments in C-428. Christopher Devlin appeared as a witness before the Standing Committee on Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development on April 23, 2013.
