The Allan G. Shepard Distinguished Professor Award is made annually to a faculty member who, as provided in the Shepard endowment agreement, is "highly qualified" and who has a record of "distinguished service to legal education, or to his or her area of expertise."

This award reflects Professor EagleWoman's rigorous and effective teaching in Civil Procedure, Native American Law, Native American

Natural Resources Law, and our new course in Tribal Nations Economics and Law; her prolific scholarship (seven law review articles, two book chapters, and numerous shorter bar journal or CLE pieces, not counting her published works before joining our faculty); her central role in creating our Native American Law curricular emphasis, in shaping and energizing the Native American Law Students Association, in creating and advising our Native American Law Moot Court team, and in conducting the annual Native American Law Conference; plus her service as an office holder and active committee member in the Association of American Law Schools (Indian Law Section Subcommittee on the Development of Federal Indian Law), the Federal Bar Association; the National Native American Bar Association, and the North West Indian Bar Association, through which she has brought regional and national recognition to our College of Law.
