Clinton recognized as Indian law professor most cited by Supreme Court
In two separate studies, Foundation Professor of Law
, a faculty member of the Indian Legal Program, was found to be one of the most-referenced Indian law professors by the U.S. Supreme Court and in Indian law review articles.
Clinton, who is also a Faculty Fellow for the Center for Law, Science & Innovation, has produced much legal scholarship that the U.S. Supreme Court has used for background and analysis in related cases. He was found to be the most-cited author and “top repeat player” of scholars cited by the Supreme Court, according to Turtle Talk, a blog for the Indigenous Law and Policy Center at the Michigan State University College of Law.
“There aren’t very many of these,” according to Turtle Talk. “Most articles or books cited (by the Court) are one and done.”
Clinton is also the author of four out of the 25 most-cited Indian law review articles, the most of any author. Among these works is “Redressing the Legacy of Conquest: A Vision Quest for a Decolonized Federal Indian Law” and “Isolated in Their Own Country: A Defense of Federal Protection of Indian Autonomy and Self-Government,” according to Turtle Talk.
Clinton teaches and writes about federal Indian law, tribal law, Native American history, constitutional law, federal courts, cyberspace law, copyrights, and civil procedure. His publications include numerous articles on federal Indian law and policy, constitutional law, and federal jurisdiction. He is the co-author of casebooks on Indian law and federal courts and over 25 major articles on federal Indian law, American constitutional law and history, and federal courts.
Clinton, who has a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School, served as a founder and an Affiliated Faculty Member of the American Indian and Native Studies Program of the University of Iowa College of Liberal Arts. He also serves as an Associate Justice of the Hopi Appellate Court and the Hualapai Tribal Court of Appeals.
