The Alaska Law Review is pleased to present our June 2021 issue, the
first in our thirty-ninth volume. While the Covid-19 pandemic has
continued to pose challenges to our editorial process, I am proud of the
hard work our staff has dedicated to this issue and am eager to share our
latest publication with you, the reader. This issue features two articles,
three student notes, and two case comments. These pieces discuss a wide
variety of legal topics significant to Alaska, offering perspectives from
practicing attorneys, scholars, and students alike.
In our first article, Alaska Native Corporation Endowment Models,
authors Robert Snigaroff of Denali Advisors and former Alaska Attorney
General Craig Richards provide a timely analysis of how the Tax Cuts and
Jobs Act of 2017 has impacted settlement trust provisions relevant to
Alaska Native Corporations. The authors suggest that Alaska Native
Corporations should consider bolstering their endowment business
activity, drawing comparisons discussion to the Alaska Permanent Fund
and from other sovereign wealth funds and endowments. The authors
consider the eventuality of for-profit corporations failing which conflicts
with important aspects of the Alaska Native Corporation mission, such as
cultural continuation.
Our second article, Alaska's Tribal Trust Lands: A Forgotten History, is
written by former Deputy Solicitor for Indian Affairs at the U.S.
Department of Interior Kyle Scherer. Mr. Scherer provides an
authoritative overview of the debate surrounding whether the Secretary
of Interior should accept land in trust on behalf of federally recognized
tribes in Alaska pursuant to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act.
Explaining past legal opinions, Mr. Scherer delves into the 2017
acceptance of a small parcel of land in Craig into trust and the debates
that ensued. Noting an absence of substantive discussion of Alaska's
existing trust parcels, Mr. Scherer offers a detailed explanation of Alaska's
past trust acquisition actions in order to better frame future debates.
In the first student note in this volume, Time's Up: A Call to Ban the
Use of Sex as an Investigatory Tactic in Alaska, incoming Editor-in-Chief
Kate Goldberg argues that the existing police practice of using sexual
contact with sex workers for investigative purposes violates due process
and should be outlawed through the reintroduction of bills previously
presented to the Alaska Legislature in 2017. Ms. Goldberg provides a
history of Alaska's prostitution jurisprudence, followed by an analysis of
ongoing practices measured against modern interpretations of the Due
