Shoemaker to Serve as Fulbright Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Legal and Resource Rights
09 Jul 2018
Professor Jessica Shoemaker is one of five University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty members to be named Fulbright scholars. She will serve as Fulbright Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Legal and Resource Rights at the University of Alberta Faculty of Law in Edmonton, Canada.
Professor Shoemaker’s work as a legal scholar focuses on the intersection of property, law and development in Native American reservations in the United States. Her research examines the complex legal and social challenges generated by these modern land tenure systems and the difficult regulatory systems that overlay these lands and land uses. Through her Fulbright project, Professor Shoemaker will study and learn from recent indigenous land reform efforts in Canada and how they may be used to guide policy efforts in the United States and around the globe.
