Intertribal Court of Southern California

The overall purpose of the ICSC is to provide members of the Native American community and their participating tribes with a cultural sensitive Judicial Forum in which to present and resolve disputes.

The ICSC is an Intertribal Court System, which works on a “circuit court” format whereby a Judge travels from one Reservation to the next presiding over assigned cases. Rulings are based on tribal laws, ordinances, customs and historical precedent. The ICSC provides court administration, court clerks, bailiffs, and case management. Tribal Court hearings are held at their respective Tribes’ Reservations.

In addition to providing Tribes and Tribal Members with a full range of court services, the Court also provides a free Lawyer Referral Service, a court sponsored Alternative Dispute Resolution, including Arbitration and Mediation, Federal Indian Law 101, and the Southern California Tribal Bar Association.
