Ann Tweedy, who is an assistant professor at Hamline, is stepping into the faculty lounge to sit with us for a spell. Ann's teaching and scholarship centers around Property, Federal Indian Law, and Gender, Sexuality, and Law. Her recent publications include "Unjustifiable Expectations: Laying to Rest the Ghosts of Allotment-Era Settlers," in the Seattle University Law Review in 2012 -- an article I highly recommend, by the way; "Sex Discrimination Under Tribal Law" in The Indian Civil Rights Act at Forty (Kristen Carpenter et al. eds.) in 2012; "Sex Discrimination Under Tribal Law," in Women and the Law (Tracy Thomas ed.) in 2011; and "Polyamory as a Sexual Orientation," in the University of Cincinnati Law Review in 2011. "How Allotment-Era Literature Can Inform Current Controversies About Tribal Jurisdiction and Reservation Diminishment" is forthcoming in the University of Toronto Quarterly. This is yet another example of the growth of "applied legal history." More of her papers are available on ssrn.
Before joining the Hamline faculty, Ann was a visiting assitant professor at Michigan State University and a Fellow at California Western School of Law. Ann received her J.D. degree from University of California, Berkeley and her A.B. degree from Bryn Mawr College. Before entering the academy, Ann clerked for Judge Gould of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and Judge Armstrong of the Oregon Court of Appeals, and worked for several years representing Indian tribes, first as in-house counsel for the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community and then as an Associate at Kanji & Katzen, PLLC. Her practice primarily centered on environmental and natural resources law.
