NCAI Webinar: VAWA implementation and Jury Requirements

NCAI Webinar: VAWA implementation and Jury Requirements 

Tuesday, April 28, 3-4:30pm EDT

25 U.S.C. 1304(d) requires tribes implementing Special Domestic Violence Criminal Jurisdiction under VAWA 2013 to provide a right to trial by an impartial jury drawn from sources that reflect a fair cross-section of the community, not excluding any distinctive group, including non-Indians.

This webinar will compare how several tribes who have already implemented the new law have structured their jury systems to meet the requirements of the law. Paula Hannaford-Agor, the Director of the Center for Jury Studies at the National Center for State Courts, will share information and resources about developing a jury plan, constructing a representative jury pool, jury management, and best practices for jury summons enforcement. The webinar will last 90 minutes, with substantial time for question and answer.
