Your client has been sued in a tribal court. What now? The uncertainty of practicing in a foreign court can be daunting. As each tribe is a sovereign nation, the most important thing you can do is first learn the practices and procedures of that particular tribe’s legal proceedings. It is also important to have a good handle on the tribe’s particular decisions and statutes. Even the requirements for being admitted to practice in tribal court can vary from tribe to tribe, so it is not a given that you will be authorized to appear, even if the tribe is located in the state where you are licensed.
