The Tribal Justice Exchange seeks “Senior Associate”
Senior Associate Center for Court Innovation, Tribal Justice Exchange
Syracuse, New York
The Center for Court Innovation is a unique public-private partnership that promotes new thinking about how courts and criminal justice agencies can aid victims, change the behavior of offenders, and strengthen communities. The Center creates demonstration projects that test new approaches to problems that have resisted conventional solutions. The Center’s problem-solving courts include the nation’s first community court, as well as drug courts, domestic violence courts, youth courts, mental health courts, and others. Nationally and internationally, the Center performs original research on topics of justice reform and provides consulting services to criminal justice innovators.
In 2008, the Center created the Tribal Justice Exchange, a new project that provides training and technical assistance to tribal communities in the planning and development of problem-solving justice initiatives, encourages formal collaborations between tribal, state, and local courts, and identifies best practices in tribal courts that can be adapted for use in state and local court systems.
