ILP alum talks about Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

On March 14, the ASU Native American Students Association (NALSA) and Women Law Students Association co-hosted VAWA: expanding tribal courts’ criminal jurisdiction. Diane Enos  (’92) who serves as Deputy Defense Attorney for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community discussed how the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and Tribal Law and Order Act (TLOA) came to be and the work she did for TLOA. She spoke on the 2022 Reauthorization of VAWA amendments and offered advice on how tribes can implement VAWA into their own tribal courts. She encouraged students to go out and gain experience to bring back to their communities and commended all the Native law students. 

We appreciate you Honorable Enos for your commitment to VAWA and taking the time to share with ASU Law students.
