The Doctor of Juridical Science (SJD) degree at the Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy (IPLP) Program offers candidates an intellectually challenging opportunity for academic specialization. Candidates for the SJD conduct research and produce original scholarship under the guidance of IPLP's internationally renowned faculty. SJD Students must complete a full-time, two semester year in residency to complete a minimum of 24 credits.

The SJD program trains students to be specialists through rigorous research and advocacy work. Graduate students receive professional training to address the complex issues facing indigenous peoples today, allowing them to develop a proficiency in fields like federal Indian law, indigenous peoples' human rights advocacy, environmental law, indigenous community and economic development, and the protection of cultural and natural resources. ​The superior learning experience provided by IPLP is reflected by the fact that we are the only program in the world with two of our SJD graduates currently serving on the two UN Bodies with the specific mandate to promote indigenous peoples' human rights within the UN system.

IPLP faculty engage students in major human rights advocacy projects and litigation on behalf of indigenous peoples. Our faculty and students have represented the Rio Yaqui of Mexico, Maya of Belize, the Hul’qumi’num Treaty Group of Canada, and other indigenous and tribal communities in human rights cases and petitions with far-ranging international reach and impact. For students interested in academic careers, IPLP allows you to conduct pioneering research under the guidance of leading scholars in their respective fields.
