     The Northwest Intertribal Court System (NICS) adheres to and embraces the following mission: 

"To assist the member tribes, at their direction, in a manner which recognizes the sovereignty, individual character, and traditions of those tribes in the development of tribal courts which will provide fair, equitable, and uniform justice for all who fall within their jurisdiction."

     As a way to fulfil our mission in the development of tribal courts, the NICS Prosecution Division coordinates networking luncheons and/or trainings for Tribal Court Clerks.  Luncheons/trainings are typically held annually and may include guest speakers who focus on a particular training element such as Customer Service, Professional Responsibilities, and Case & Records Management.  

     NICS has the flexibility to offer a variety of single or multi-day trainings ranging in scope of broad-based topics or customized outlines to meet individual needs.
