Tribal-State Court Forums Annotated Directory Now Online!

January 27, 2016

The Tribal Law and Policy Institute is happy to announce the publication of:

Tribal-State Court Forums: An Annotated Directory

This directory includes a detailed listing of the 10 currently operational Tribal -State Court forums around the nation. These forums provide unique collaboration opportunities across jurisdictions and have led to such positive outcomes as:  agreements on the transfer of jurisdiction, Indian Child Welfare Act education, tribal court directories, legislation on the enforcement of tribal court orders, judicial relationship building, and many more.

Information on each forum includes: membership; funding; structure; organization; key accomplishments and authorizing documentation. We hope this will serve as inspiration for those hoping to start a forum and as a reference for those that have a forum up and running.  Please contact the Tribal Law and Policy Institute for additional information on technical assistance available to tribal-state court forums:
