The National Indian Justice Center, Inc., (NIJC) is an Indian owned and operated non-profit corporation with principal offices in Santa Rosa, California. NIJC was established in 1983 through the collective efforts of the National American Indian Court Judges Association, the American Indian Lawyer Training Program, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs in order to establish an independent national resource for Native communities and tribal government. The goals of NIJC are to design and deliver legal education, research, and technical assistance programs which seek to improve the quality of life for Native communities and the administration of justice in Indian country.
For more than 30 years, NIJC has designed and conducted effective education programs via regional trainings, on-site training and conferences for tribal courts, tribal government, law enforcement, social services, medical personnel, victims assistance programs and other interests throughout Indian country. Some of the programs include alcohol and substance abuse, alternative methods of dispute resolution, child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, Indian youth and family law, juvenile justice, and federal Indian law.
We are not only the pioneers of providing technical assistance to Indian tribes, tribal organizations and government agencies, but we have established ourselves as the true leaders in providing training sessions, on-site consultations, and publication services throughout Indian country.
