Fletcher Study on American Indian Legal Scholarship and the Courts

I have posted the data so far in chart form for my ongoing study on the impact of American Indian legal scholarship on the judiciary. The draft paper, which will be available on a limited basis at the Berkeley conference on Phil Frickey’s legacy, is called “American Indian Legal Scholarship and the Courts.” The data is available on SSRN here.

Here is the abstract for the appendices:

“American Indian Legal Scholarship and the Courts” is a forthcoming article that includes charts representing data on the citation patters of federal, state, and tribal courts to American Indian legal scholarship (defined as law review and similar publications focused on American Indian law). This paper includes three appendices in the form of simple charts that organize that data. Appendix 1 is a chart of Supreme Court opinions dating back to 1959 that include citations to Indian law review articles. Appendix 2 is a chart of law review articles cited in lower federal, state, and tribal courts since 1959, organized by article. Appendix 3 is the same chart reversed, with the chart organized by case first.
