Our screening for the award-winning documentary “Tribal Justice” will take place on Thursday, November 7th at our Downtown Location from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm. We are honored to have the Chief Judge of the Quechan Tribe , the Hon. Claudette White, attend the screening as our special guest and take part in a short question and answer session following the film.

Judge White is one of the two tribal judges featured in the “Tribal Justice” documentary.  The other is the Hon. Abby Abinanti of the Yurok Tribe of northern California. These two visionary leaders strive to reduce incarceration rates and heal their people by restoring rather than punishing offenders. “Tribal Justice” was created by Makepeace Productions and featured on the PBS show POV, television’s longest-running showcase for independent non-fiction films. More information about the film is available at the Tribal Justice website.

We are grateful to University of San Diego School of Law and HeinOnline for sponsoring this event with us.

This program is part of our focus on Tribal Law. If you are interested in more information about Tribal Law, check out our research guide on Federal Indian & Tribal Law. Each year we give special focus to an area of law intrinsic to the fabric of San Diego county’s culture, history, and modern day life. We have identified four main topics: Military Law, Tribal Law, Water Law, and Border Law. These topics are rotated annually for special prominence in our educational and professional programming.
