New resource - Guide for Tribal Court Law Clerks and Judges

A Guide for Tribal Court Law Clerks and Judges is a recent publication of the University of Colorado law school. It includes practical information such as "the benefits of clerkship," "how to best work with a law clerk," and sample forms and letters to help make a new or existing tribal court law clerk program run smoothly.

The book was co-authored by Jill Tompkins, the Director of the American Indian Law Clinic at the University of Colorado. She has also served as a tribal court judge and as the president of the National American Indian Court Judges Association.

The book is available via a free download.
