Professor Russell came to university teaching after retiring from 17 years as a trial court judge in Texas, and he holds an advanced law degree in addition to the JD. This experience and education has led to a number of articles about the judicial process. His research focuses on the necessity to redefine national sovereignty to settle disputes arising from globalization and the need for American Indians to redefine tribal sovereignty and Indian identity in response to national and international change. Articles from this research have appeared in Crime, Law & Social Change, Chicago Policy Review, and Georgetown Public Policy Review. He has published a series of articles on transnational corporate crime, and his current research is focused on the legal and social aspects of American Indian identity.
