AILC’s mission is to provide training and technical assistance to tribes, tribal organizations, and tribal courts; legal and policy analysis on various issues important to tribal governments; and preparatory legal education to individuals. AILC accomplishes its mission by focusing on three main areas:
- Pre-Law Summer Institute (PLSI);
- Policy and Legal Analysis; and
- Southwest Intertribal Court of Appeals (SWITCA).
Over the years, the AILC has worked with officials from more than 20 states, hundreds of tribes and Native American organizations, and has trained thousands of professionals and paraprofessionals. As a result, AILC has a unique, in-depth knowledge about tribal institutions, including tribal courts and their place in tribal government, and about tribal, state, and federal relations.
AILC is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation.
