33rd Alaska Tribal Court Development Conference

The 33rd Alaska Tribal Court Development Conference (the event is limited to Alaska Tribal Justice Personnel only) will feature current issues and recent developments affecting Alaska tribal courts and tribal jurisdiction. The annual event is intended for Tribes that are pursuing current and relevant tribal court training. It also provides information to Tribes that are just beginning to develop their own tribal courts and to Tribes seeking to expand or to modify tribal court operations.

The theme of this year’s Conference is “Fairness in Justice.” Judges, elders, practitioners, and distinguished speakers will present on the tribal court role in supporting restorative justice; addressing alcohol and drug abuse in the villages; and protecting Alaska Native children, elders, and vulnerable adults. Other topics include tribal-state collaboration in criminal matters and fairness and impartiality in tribal court proceedings.
