Thanks to his gift, Robert Rosette, a College of Law alumnus and the founder of the law firm Rosette, LLP, has made it possible to establish the Rosette, LLP, American Indian Economic Development Program.

The Rosette, LLP, American Indian Economic Development Program will include a law school curriculum for students; host an annual national conference focusing on tribal economic development for attorneys, tribal leaders and members, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and developers and financial advisors; and incorporate a community outreach component. 

"Robert has devoted his law career to issues involving tribal economic development," said Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law Dean Doug Sylvester. "This program is a wonderful addition to our Indian Legal Program and will help us expand the reach of our newest ILP faculty member, Robert Miller."

The Rosette, LLP, American Indian Economic Development Program is headed by Professor Robert Miller, whose areas of expertise are civil procedure, federal Indian law, American Indians and international law, American Indian economic development and Native American natural resources.
