The Journal is an academic collaboration between students, faculty, and practitioners designed to assist those working in the field of Indian law and serving tribal clients, by providing them timely and relevant resources and analysis.  The Journal, which employs an innovative and publicly available online format and will soon appear on the Digital Commons, exemplifies Seattle University’s commitment to social justice.   

Eric Eberhard served as one of the Journal’s founding faculty advisors while he taught advanced Indian law courses as a Distinguished Practitioner in Residence at Seattle University School of Law.  Professor Eberhard’s commitment to the Journal was instrumental in its formative years and the seven years he dedicated to this endeavor ensured the Journal’s provisional status and eventual accreditation.  In addition to the contributions Professor Eberhard made as a law professor at Seattle University, he provided individual guidance to each of the over fifty student members of the Journal since its founding in 2011 as a Faculty Advisor.

Bree Black Horse is a 2013 graduate of Seattle University School of Law and a recipient of the Douglas R. Nash Native American Law Scholarship.  While at Seattle University, Bree served as a Co-founder, Managing Editor and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal.  The Journal published Bree’s student article regarding Tribal Payday Lending in its Spring 2013 issue.

The Journal published its first issue in 2012, which featured Anthony Broadman’s article Know Your Enemy: Local Taxation and Tax Agreements in Indian County.    After Seattle University School of Law granted the Journal provisional status in 2011, the Journal was accredited in 2015.  The Journal will publish its tenth issue in this Fall’s issue. 

Eric and Bree will personally welcome the Journal’s eleventh generation of students at orientation later this month.
