Tribal Court Clearinghouse: Tribal Law

Founded in 1997, the Tribal Court Clearinghouse hosts an abundance of resources on tribal courts and laws. As the resource notes, "tribes have always had, and continue to retain, the sovereign authority to establish and operate their own tribal justice systems." The Clearinghouse's Tribal Law hub provides ten topical sections to understand tribal court systems. The Tribal Courts section, the first option listed, is a great place to start. It begins with some background information on the establishment of sovereign authority under the Indian Reorganization Act. Additionally, this section lists all United States' Tribal Courts (cataloged by state). The remaining nine sections cover Tribal constitutions, codes, and case law, pertinent research articles, and other key actors (including federal, state, and law enforcement officials). Those looking for further information on tribal court systems will want to explore the other information hubs highlighted at the top of the site: Federal Law, State Law, Topics, Program Resources, and Native Resources. The Tribal Law and Policy Institute publishes the Tribal Court Clearinghouse, and links to other resources from the organization are provided on the right-hand panel of the website's home page.
