AISC Launches Collaborative Research Institute with the U.S. Indian Law and Order Commission
The UCLA American Indian Studies Center is delighted to announce the launch of Partners for Justice: UCLA Institute on Criminal Law in Indian Country. Partners for Justice is a research initiative designed to support the work of the United States Indian Law and Order Commission (ILOC), which was recently established by the Tribal Law and Order Act. The Commission’s members are appointed by President Barack Obama and include Carole E. Goldberg, the Jonathan D. Varat Distinguished Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law and, as of July 1, 2011, the UCLA Vice Chancellor for Academic Personnel. Through Partners for Justice, the Center will work with the ILOC to assist in furthering research related to a “comprehensive study of law enforcement and criminal justice in tribal communities,” as required by the law. We are delighted to be working with the ILOC and to be engaged in work of such great significance to Indian communities across the United States.
As of November 30, 2013, the UCLA American Indian Studies Center serves as the sole repository for the Indian Law and Order Commission’s materials, which we will maintain and make available for research purposes. Visit Indian Law and Order Commission website.
