Further to its 45th Annual Conference on Indigenous Peoples and the Law in 2021 and its 1st Symposium on Indigenous Courts held in 2023, CIAJ continues to explore the current state and future of self-governance strategy for Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

With this 2nd symposium held in person on Tsuut’ina Nation land adjacent to Calgary and online from November 4-6, 2024, CIAJ wishes to provide space for dialogue and knowledge sharing among actors of the legal system on how Indigenous communities design their own legal institutions and how they interact with the existing legal system to better create a justice system reflective of Indigenous culture and values.

Who should attend?

Members of Indigenous communities, judges, legal professionals and law students across Canada are invited to join the discussion, reflect on the future and collectively work toward solutions.
