AIPRA Community Education Project

The American Indian Probate Reform Act (AIPRA) took effect in June, 2006 and affects the land interests of thousands of American Indians across the United States.  Through a grant by the Colorado Bar Foundation, the University of Colorado Law School’s American Indian Law Clinic developed and presented community education materials designed to explain AIPRA’s key provisions and help community members and legal practitioners in the estate planning process.

In April of 2006 American Indian Law Clinic student attorneys presented two community education seminars for Metro Denver and Durango-area American Indian residents and attorneys.  This web site provides its visitors, both lay and legal professionals, with information on AIPRA, materials and tools to assist in inquiries about land interests, and links to other AIPRA resources.
