Professor Johnson began teaching in 1955 at the University of Washington, after spending six years in private practice. He received both Ford Foundation and NSF grants and taught as a visiting professor at Harvard and UCLA law schools.

His primary interests were in natural resource and American Indian law and he served as a consultant to a number of national and international agencies and to Indian tribes. He was the Faculty Chair of the Center for Environmental Law and Policy which he created in 1993. He co-authored Cleaning Up Europe's Waters: Economics, Management, and Policies and Felix Cohen's Handbook of Federal Indian Law.

Professor Johnson was a dedicated teacher, and in recognition of this was awarded the Student Bar Association's "Teacher of the Year Award" for 1983-84. In June 1998, Professor Johnson received the University of Oregon's Distinguished Service Award. He was admitted to the bar in both Washington and Oregon.

The Center for Environmental Law & Policy has a page on Ralph Johnson's legacy.
