President Obama has named Theresa Pouley to the Indian Law and Order Commission. Pouley teaches Indian Law at Edmonds Community College and is Chief Judge of the Tulalip Tribal Court. She was among three people to be appointed.
“I am proud to appoint such impressive men and women to these important roles, and I am grateful they have agreed to lend their considerable talents to this Administration.” President Obama said in a statement.
The Indian Law and Order Commission was created last year to study law enforcement and criminal justice in tribal communities and to recommend possible changes to federal, state and tribal justice systems.
Judge Pouley frequently lectures at local, state and national conferences on Tribal Courts and Indian law issues.
