Alaska Justice Forum ; Vol. 7, No. 2 (Summer 1990)The Summer 1990 issue of the Alaska Justice Forum presents findings from a 1989 study of the Alaska bar membership, which analyzed sex-based differences between resident members of the Alaska Bar Association regarding economic and professional status and career path, particularly with regard to the "gender gap" in law practice income. The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports on federal, state, and local government expenditures and employment in civil and criminal justice in fiscal year 1988. Uniform Crime Report figures reported in the FBI's annual Crime in the United States found a slight drop in the crime rate in Alaska between 1988 and 1989. John Angell returns as Director of the Justice Center at University of Alaska Anchorage.
Justice Data Base DirectoryThe Justice Data Base Directory, first published in 1988 with new chapters added annually through 1992, presents information about the primary databases maintained by Alaska justice agencies and the procedures to be followed for access to the data. Its availability should substantially reduce the work required to identify the sources of data for research and policy development in law, law enforcement, courts, and corrections. The 1992 update to the directory adds five chapters, for a total of 27 Alaska agencies whose justice-related data holdings are described: Alaska Court System; Alaska Judicial Council; Alaska Commission on Judicial Conduct; Alaska Department of Law; Alaska Department of Public Safety (DPS) and three agencies under DPS: Alaska Police Standards Council, Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDSA), and Violent Crimes Compensation Board; Alaska Department of Corrections (DOC) and Parole Board; four agencies of the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services — Bureau of Vital Statistics (Division of Public Health), Epidemiology Section (Division of Public Health), Division of Family and Youth Services, and Office of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse; Alaska Public Defender Agency; Office of Public Advocacy (OPA); Alaska Bar Association; Alaska Justice Statistical Analysis Unit; Alaska Office of Equal Employment Opportunity (Office of the Governor); Alaska Office of the Ombudsman; Alaska Legal Services Corporation; Alaska Public Offices Commission; Alaska State Commission for Human Rights; Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board; Legislative Research Agency; Legislative Affairs Agency; State Archives and Records Management Services (Alaska Department of Education).
