American Indian Legal Scholarship and the Courts: Heeding Frickey’s Call

Matthew L.M. Fletcher

Abstract

This piece expands upon the author's comments at the Henderson Center's Fall 2012 Symposium, "Heeding Frickey's Call: Doing Justice in Indian Country."

Michigan State University College of Law Professor Matthew L.M. Fletcher examines the late Berkeley Law Professor Philip P. Frickey's call for more grounded and empirical American Indian legal scholarship. Fletcher analyzes the state of American Indian legal scholarship that led to Frickey's call and the impact that Frickey's call has had since.
