Professor of Practice Carl Artman, Director of the College of Law’s Economic Development in Indian Country Program, wrote an article about the Tribal Law and Order Act that was published in the July issue of the Godfrey & Kahn newsletter.
In the law firm’s Indian Nations Law Alert, Artman wrote about the act, which Congress passed on July 21, and President Obama is expected to sign. It will bring accountability to the federal administration of justice in Indian Country and strengthen tribal justice systems, he wrote.The act “seeks to increase coordination and communication among Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement agencies; reduce violent crime, sexual violence, and drug and alcohol addition in Indian Country; and increase the collection and sharing of criminal data among the different jurisdictional entities,” the article states.
Artman served as the 10th Assistant Secretary — Indian Affairs for the U.S. Department of the Interior and as the Department’s Associate Solicitor for Indian Affairs. An enrolled member of the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin, he has worked for his tribe as Director of Federal Affairs, Chief Legal Counsel, and as Chief Operating Officer of an Oneida Tribe-owned telecommunications venture.
