A Dialogue on the Tribal Law and Order Act Implementation of the Enhanced Sentencing Authority


Tribal Leaders and Tribes who are beginning discussions or actively exploring the impact of TLOA implementation enhanced sentencing authority are encouraged to attend.  This event will provide valuable information to tribal, state and federal representatives of all disciplines and representatives that may be impacted through the expansion of sentencing authority, including, public defenders, prosecutors, law enforcement, victims’ advocates, community corrections (pretrial, probation, and reentry), service providers, community members, and others. 

Host Agency(s)

American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) partnering with the Tribal Judicial Institute at the University of North Dakota School of Law and the National Tribal Judicial Center at the National Judicial College.

Event Detail:

The Dialogue Session has been proposed to bring together tribes who have gone through the journey of implementation of Enhanced Sentencing Authority (ESA) to share why they chose to implement ESA, their process for implementation, the successes and challenges they experienced, or any other information they feel would be critical for tribes moving towards implementation. We hope this event will allow tribes who are exploring implementation of ESA in their communities to learn directly from tribes who have implemented this authority. Further, all faculty and participants will be given an opportunity to provide information to DOJ representatives on funding, training, and technical assistance needs regarding ESA implementation.


There are no fees to attend this event. To register, please follow this link:
