Tribal courts across the country can vary in the size of court team members and the number of tribal departments the court works closely with. Identifying general court team members can help developing courts understand which positions are commonly recognized as a part of the court. Selecting court team members with specific skills and abilities can help the court establish a strong foundation of staff. Examining the roles the court has with tribal departments that work closely with the court can also help court personnel create a system of strong communication and clear procedures on how to handle matters with those departments efficiently.
