USD Law and HeinOnline to Sponsor Tribal Justice
We would like to thank the University of San Diego School of Law and HeinOnline for being part of our upcoming event, Tribal Justice, which takes place at our Downtown Location on Thursday, November 7th, from 5:30 to 8:00 pm.
University of San Diego School of Law is sponsoring the showing of the independent film, “Tribal Justice,” which documents two tribal courts in California. The film follows two tribal court judges, The Honorable Claudette White, Chief Justice of the Quechan Tribe, and the Honorable Abby Abinanti, Chief Justice of the Yurok Tribe. These two judges strive to reduce incarceration rates and heal their people by restoring rather than punishing offenders. Abby is a fierce, lean elder who has dedicated her life to humane justice. Claudette represents a new generation of Native American lawyers who are re-visioning justice. The film follows cases in and out of their courts. We are very honored to have Judge White attend our event and answer questions from the audience about her experiences after the film.
More information about the film is available at the Tribal Justice website.
