Tribal Courts

Tribal courts are formalized systems established by American Indian and Alaska Native tribes for resolving criminal and other legal matters. If you are clerking for a tribal court, you will need to use the following resources:

  • National Directory of Tribal Justice Systems. Provides links and contact information for individual tribal courts.
  • United States Tribal Courts Directory. 4th ed. 2011 (Available at Law Library Book Stacks, 3rd Floor at KF8224 .C6 S39 2011 and on HeinOnline).  Directory contains a state-by-state listing of the contact information for tribal courts across the county with background information provided for selected courts. The online version includes indexing for the 4th edition and the full text of all prior editions.
