But what are the odds that a law review article will affect who gets groomed to take over the family farm?

Alfred Brophy

The article might reach lawyers -- and it's certainly reached this trusts and estates teacher. Alsgaard has identified a series of issues that need to be addressed. Part of addressing those issues is educating lawyers (or raising their consciousness as we used to say).

Thanks for commenting, Lurking.

There are interesting contrasts between the traditions among Anglo-Americans in the U.S. and tribal traditions in the U.S., in many of which farming was traditionally a female activity, much to the chagrin of early missionaries and settlers. For a modern example, see Riggs v: Estate of Attakai, No. SC-CV-39-04 (Navajo 2007).
