aijcon.gifThe American Indian Justice Conference offers tribes across the nation an opportunity to learn strategies to enhance tribal justice systems while providing essential information on court development, drug and alcohol abuse, probation and parole, SORNA Implementation, and other relevant topics. Join other tribal community justice professionals, practitioners and technical assistance providers to address multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional approaches to the development of justice programs. There is no fee to attend the conference.





​Conference goals were established by building upon past conferences and responding to recommendations of Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) grantees. These goals include:

  • Building strong and sustainable tribal justice systems by highlighting strategies.
  • Sharing details on tribal programs that have a positive impact in their community justice system.
  • Providing information to tribal justice system personnel on topics such as court planning and development, diversionary court programs, traditional dispute resolution, justice system responses to alcohol and substance abuse, and emerging issues that are relevant to tribal justice system development.


​Information coming soon on pre-conference training.
