Galanda, Broadman and Dreveskracht's Law Review Articles Named to Prof. Matthew Fletcher's Must-Read List

Leading American indigenous rights scholar Professor Matthew Fletcher has published, "American Indian Legal Scholarship and the Courts: Heeding Frickey’s Call," in the March 2013 volume of California Law Review.

In the article, he cites law review articles by Gabe Galanda, Anthony Broadman and Ryan Dreveskracht, respectively, in "a list of articles produced in the five years or so since Frickey’s call that...have overcome the law review market’s hurdles to meet Frickey’s criteria."

In harkening the late Prof. Philip P. Frickey's call "for dramatic changes to the goals and methodologies of American Indian legal favor of more grounded and empirical scholarship, work that could inform the Court about the realities on the ground in Indian country," Prof. Fletcher concludes his paper with "a celebration of the impact Frickey’s call already has had on the academy":

[S]everal American Indian legal scholars are doing their damnedest to meet Frickey’s call. Federal and state judges are not the only audience. Legal scholarship is for practicing attorneys; tribal, state, and federal leaders; and many others, too. And so I conclude this short paper with my own reading list of recent work that unquestionably fulfills the call for new realism in American Indian legal scholarship. I include articles dating back five years or so that meet one or more of the criteria articulated by Frickey. I also add a list of excellent “nuts and bolts” articles.

Prof. Fletcher's "must-read" list includes:

Gabriel S. Galanda, Arbitration in Indian Country: Taking the Long View, 65 DISP.RESOL.J., Nov. 2010-Jan. 2011, at 30.

Anthony Broadman, Know Your Enemy: Local Taxation and Tax Agreements in Indian Country, AM. INDIAN L.J., Trial Issue 2012, at 1.

Ryan David Dreveskracht, Native Nation Economic Development Via the Implementation of Solar Projects: How to Make It Work, 68 WASH.&LEE L.REV. 27 (2011).

Gabe, Anthony and Ryan are truly honored by Prof. Fletcher's citation to and inclusion of their law review scholarship in his most important paper regarding the state and future of American Indian legal scholarship.
