Professor Pommersheim's Statement on His Scholarship
The Indian law scholarship that I have authored over the past 25 years has two principal focuses. The first focus is essentially an ‘inside-out' view of how federal Indian law and tribal law looks from the local tribal point of view, especially from the institutional building perspective of tribal courts. The second focus is a more critical view of the ‘outside-in’ or ‘top-down’ doctrinal vagaries and inconsistencies of the United States Supreme Court. These dual concerns are essentially complementary: you cannot understand one side of the coin of federal Indian law without understanding the other.
