Domestic Violence in Indian Country

Wednesday, February 3, 2010
12:00 PM - 02:00 PM



A panel of law professors, policy makers, and NGO advocates will examine how conflicts between federal and tribal jurisdiction can lead to a lack of prosecution and enforcement of domestic violence cases in Native American communities. In addition, panelists will identify the various policy mechanisms that have been developed to address this problem, and explore the ways in which Native women's organizations have used these mechanisms to help end violence against women in their communities.

Presented by the Women and the Law Program, the Native American Law Students Association, and the Women's Law Association
