The Intertribal Court of Southern California (ICSC) was formed in 2002 when the Southern California Tribal Chairmen’s Association received a grant from the United States Department of Justice. The ICSC then began operation in August of 2006.
The purpose of the ICSC is to provide its member tribes with an independent and culturally sensitive forum in which to present and resolve disputes. We are committed to our goal of empowerment to bring "empowerment through the equal administration of equal justice for all."

• JUSTICE •
"Empowerment through the effective administration of equal justice for all"
"Law is order, and good law is good order."
Cases We Hear
The ICSC functions as a circuit court where judges travel to different reservations to resolve cases based on each tribe's laws, customs, and traditions.
The ICSC proudly serves a consortium of tribes across Southern California.
