Associate Professor Addie Rolnick to Testify as Expert Witness

Addie Rolnick is an Associate Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Professor Rolnick has been invited to testify on Feb. 11 as an expert witness at one of four national hearings held by the Attorney General's Advisory Committee on American Indian and Alaska Native Children Exposed to Violence.

This hearing will focus on the Juvenile Systems’ (Tribal, State and Federal) Response to American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Children Exposed to Violence.

Professor Rolnick will testify, along with two members of the national Tribal Law and Order Commission, as part of a panel entitled "Overview of American Indian Children and Youth in Tribal, State, and Federal Juvenile Justice Systems."

Professor Rolnick's scholarship focuses on bridging gaps between civil rights, Critical Race Theory, federal Indian law, and indigenous rights.
