Washington Law Review


Ralph W. Johnson

Document Type



This Indian law symposium issue of the Washington Law Review was inspired by the work of Professor Ralph W. Johnson, whose teaching and personal commitment to the field have motivated hundreds, if not thousands, of law students. The decision of the Editorial Board to dedicate the symposium to him might have been made by as many as thirty classes that have passed through the University of Washington School of Law. Those students have been introduced to and moved by Professor Johnson's elucidation of a field that is at once intellectually challenging and morally significant. Johnson's alumni have spread over the country to represent clients, enact legislation, advise governments, and judge cases. Some are attorneys for tribes, while others are not, but they are all stronger, wiser attorneys for what they learned from Johnson.
