EXERCISING CRIMINAL JURISDICTION in California Tribal Courts Conference 

Join us for a one-day conference devoted to the “nuts and bolts” needed for California tribal courts to exercise criminal jurisdiction over Indians and non-Indian offenders who commit domestic violence on tribal lands.

Presenters will be from out-of-state tribes comparable in population and size to many California tribes that currently exercise criminal jurisdiction.  The agenda will include presentations from tribal court judges, tribal prosecutors, tribal defense attorneys, court clerks, tribal law enforcement and correction officers.

Who Should Attend:  Tribal leaders, tribal court judges, court personnel, tribal law enforcement, tribal attorneys, domestic violence advocates and resource providers, and tribal community members.

This conference is CLE eligible for 6.75 hours.

Space is limited. Registration required by 5/3/17. Breakfast and lunch are being provided.

Hosted by California Indian Legal Services with a grant from Bureau of Indian Affairs- Tribal Justice Support, Office of Justice Services.
