          NOTE FROM THE EDITOR


     The Alaska Law Review is pleased to present our June 2016 issue, the
first in our thirty-third volume. I am proud as both an Alaskan and as
editor-in-chief of this journal to share the following three articles and
three Duke Law student notes with you. The pieces cover important
topics in the modern Alaskan legal system, including the future of
offshore oil and gas leasing, sustainable development, and firearm
regulation in the state.
     Our first featured article recommends improvements to the Bureau
of Ocean Energy Management's offshore oil and gas planning, leasing,
and exploration plan review processes. Next Steps to Reform the
Regulations Governing Offshore Oil and Gas Planning and Leasing by
Andrew Hartsig, Michael Levine, Jayni Foley Hein, and Jason Schwartz
builds upon a previous 2014 article that identified the need for the
modernization of oil and gas regulations on the Outer Continental Shelf.
Mr. Hartsig is director of the Arctic Program at the Ocean Conservancy,
a nonprofit marine conservation organization; Mr. Levine is Pacific
Senior Counsel for Oceana, an international nonprofit organization
dedicated to maintaining and restoring ocean ecosystems; Ms. Hein is
the policy director at the Institute for Policy Integrity at NYU School of
Law; and Mr. Schwartz is an adjunct professor and legal director at the
Institute for Policy Integrity at NYU School of Law.
     In our second article, Sustainable Development, Natural Resource
Extraction, and the Arctic: The Road Ahead, Dr. Edward Canuel analyses
the complexities of understanding    sustainable development and
suggests a framework to assist stakeholders in navigating the socio-
economic and legal hurdles associated with Arctic development. Dr.
Canuel is a U.S. Foreign Service Officer and is an Adjunct Professor at
American University. He received his J.D. from Boston College, a Master
of Laws from Osgoode Hall, and a Ph.D. in international private law
from the University of Oslo.
     Our third article, Enjoying Katmai by John Copeland Nagle,
provides a historical overview of Katmai, from its great volcanic creation
in the twentieth century to the congressional establishment of Katmai
National Park and Preserve. It addresses the National Park Service's
responsibility under the Organic Act to facilitate both conservation and
enjoyment of the land. Mr. Nagle is the John N. Matthews Professor of
Law at Notre Dame Law School. He received his J.D. from the
