NCAI & the Tribal Law and Policy Institute Webinar: Implementing VAWA's Expanded Jurisdiction in Tribal Courts
On Friday, April 5, 1:30-3:30 (Eastern Time), the National Congress of American Indians and the Tribal Law and Policy Institute will host a webinar to discuss some of the changes implemented by the Violence Against Women Act 2013 reauthorization. The Violence Against Women Act includes a provision which expands tribal court jurisdiction over all persons for certain crimes committed on the reservation. In order to exercise this expansion of jurisdiction, tribal courts must meet certain requirements which will be discussed during this webinar.
