ILP Students Reach Final Four in NALSA Moot Court Competition


ASU’s Jeremiah Chin (2L) and Jonathon Sanchez (2L) competed in the 2013 National Native American Law Student’s Moot Court competition on Friday and Saturday, February 22nd and 23rd.  Emerging from a field of 60 teams representing law schools across the nation, Jeremiah and Jonathon advanced to the Final Four before being knocked out by Columbia Law School.  Jeremiah consistently delivered a stellar presentation and was clearly in the running for the top oralist award.  Judge after judge noted his superior performance and command of the law and ability to apply the
analysis.  One judge  noted during the critiques, “Mr. Chin, you have such a strong presence and wonderful delivery that we didn’t want to interrupt you [with questions].”  And yet another simply adopted a baseball analogy stating “you hit it out of the park.”  Jeremiah and Jonathon developed and delivered a truly unique approach to their argument and an equally “out-of-the box” strategic presentation that carried them to the final four.  In recent memory, no other team has advanced as far as Jeremiah or Jonathon in the NNALSA Moot Court Competition.

Congratulations to Jeremiah and Jonathon for an excellent job!

SRPMIC seeking Pro Tempore Judges

Judge Pro Tempore Qualifications

On 12/5/12, the new Civil and Criminal Appellate Procedure was adopted by the Community Council.



This Ordinance provides for an Appellate Division of the
Community Court and shall take effect on March 1, 2013.

“A panel consisting of three justices will consider and
decide the merits of any appeals, petitions, or motions.”  We have been
using Pro Tem Judges to review any appeals cases up to this point, and we do
have three Judges that we use on a regular basis.  However we are looking
for additional judges that may be willing to step in from time to time, as
needed.  This would not be a permanent full or part time position.
It would be on a Pro Tem basis only.  (We anticipate using Pro Tems until
we can get an idea of how many cases the new appellate procedure will
bring.  It may be determined at a later time that the Community may have a
need to appoint permanent Appellate Judges.)

I have attached the necessary qualifications needed to serve
as a Pro Tem Judge here at Salt River.  This could be a great opportunity
for someone who would be interested in working for the Tribal Court, but has
limited time available.  Currently, our Pro Tem judges receive $300/day
and can receive an additional $100 incentive for their finished order.

If you have any questions or would like to express
interest, please contact Senior Court Solicitor, Anthony Little at (480)
362-5415 or at Anthony.Little@srpmic-nsn.gov.

There are active affinity groups for African-American; Asian-American; Hispanic; lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT); and Native American employees, which are open to all DOJ employees regardless of background. Justice fosters a work environment where people of all backgrounds and experiences may reach their full potential.

Thank you for your help in disseminating this vacancy announcement.  This and other attorney vacancy announcements can be found at: http://www.justice.gov/careers/legal/attvacancies.html.


About the Office: The legal practice at the Consolidated Legal Center (CLC) covers a wide variety of issues focusing on correctional law and litigation, either through administrative or litigation channels and includes such matters as inmates’ reasonable access to the courts (through access to legal materials, legal correspondence, and attorney-client visits), conditions of confinement, medical care, diet and religious accommodations, housing assignments, hygiene and sanitation, and discipline.

The position includes being involved in a legal office that oversees the legal operations associated with three correctional institutions: Federal Correctional Institution, Phoenix, Arizona, Federal Correctional Institution, Safford, Arizona, and the Federal Correctional Complex, Tucson, Arizona. The incumbent will be expected to provide advice and guidance to all levels of staff at these correctional facilities, including members of the Executive Staff. The incumbent may also be required to handle other Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) legal matters as assigned, which are outside of the District of Arizona. The incumbent will also be expected to communicate with defense attorneys, prosecutors, federal courts, and agency officials. The incumbent must have thorough knowledge of all aspects of BOP policy and practice as he/she may be required to appear in District Court on short notice to explain and advocate the agency’s rationale for its correctional management decisions.

Responsibilities and Opportunity Offered: This is a primary law enforcement position. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 3307, the maximum entry age of 36 has been established for initial appointment to a position in a Bureau of Prisons correctional institution. The duties of this position may at times require frequent and direct contact with individuals in confinement who are suspected or convicted of serious criminal offenses. It has also been determined that the duties of this position require experience and knowledge of the on-the-job responsibilities of a primary law enforcement officer working in a detention facility. A prerequisite requirement of this position is the successful completion of “Institution Familiarization” and, the satisfactory completion of a mandatory course in “Introduction to Correctional Techniques.”

Because of the nature and mission of this position, it requires “hands-on” understanding of the issues encompassed in working within an institution. The incumbent may be called on to perform as a law enforcement officer in a correctional environment during training, emergency situations, times of staff shortages, and under any other type of correctional operating crisis. Specific correctional responsibilities may include custody and supervision of inmates, responding to emergencies and institution disturbances, participating in fog and escape patrols, and assuming correctional officer posts when necessary. The incumbent may be required to shakedown inmates and conduct visual searches in their work or living area for contraband. The incumbent must be prepared to use physical control in situations where necessary, such as in fights among inmates, assaults on staff, and riots or escape attempts.

Required Qualifications: Applicant must possess a J.D. degree, be an active member of the bar (any jurisdiction), and have at least 2 years of post-J.D. experience for the GS-13 level, and 3 years for the GS-14 level.

Preferred qualifications: Prior and extensive experience in correctional law is preferred, but not required.

Travel: Some travel may be required.

Salary Information: Current salary and years of experience will determine the appropriate salary level. The possible salary range, including locality pay adjustments, is GS-13 ($83,687 to $108,791) or GS 14 ($98,892 to $128,557).

Location: Phoenix, Arizona
