LETTER FROM THE DEAN Welcome to this edition of The Record!! After a year of “Thinking Forward,” Boston University School of Law has truly begun “Moving Forward” toward goals both recently initiated and years in the making. Most importantly, after more than twenty years of waiting, we finally opened the doors to the brand new Sumner M. Redstone Building—a facility that matches the caliber of our legal education and brings our community closer. In September, we kicked off Alumni Weekend 2014 with the Redstone Building dedication. First Circuit Chief Judge Sandra Lynch (’71), Campaign Chair Rick Godfrey (’79), Boston Mayor Chief of Staff Daniel Koh, BU Law student Jacquelyn Rex (’15), and BU President Robert Brown spoke to a crowd of more than 350 people about the important impact the building will have on our campus and our community. I was inspired to see so many of you at the ceremony, as it represents a significant milestone not only in the history of the School, but also in our $80 million campaign. We have reached nearly 65 percent of our goal, meeting the Law Building Fund goal and turning our attention to supporting financial aid, professorships, academic programs, and the Law Fund. These financial priorities are critical to moving forward with initiatives that will help our students achieve the practical knowledge and experience they need to thrive in this ever-evolving legal market. Relatedly, in fall 2013, we held a retreat at which faculty and alumni gathered to discuss what BU Law could do to help our students find meaningful employment after graduation. We explored increasing experiential learning opportunities, enhancing practical training programs, and amplifying alumni outreach and mentorship efforts to battle the challenging job market. In this issue you will read about the outcomes of these discussions. Three alumni feature stories demonstrate the determination and the intellectual strength of our graduates during times of turmoil and against formidable obstacles. Bernard Fielding (’58) showed his resilience and resolve, overcoming prejudice as the first African American elected to the Charleston County probate court. Sara Aalamri (LLM in Banking & Financial Law ’10), a modern trailblazer and a champion of women's rights in the Middle East, became one of the first four licensed women attorneys in Saudi Arabia. And Dan Rubinstein (’95) had the unique, not to mention difficult, task of investigating a nearly decade-old homicide and suspected ensuing political cover-up in Chicago. The past few years have proven to be a time of crisis for many US law schools. But the support of the BU Law alumni community, both financial and otherwise, has given the School of Law the needed momentum to move forward successfully. In the pages that follow, I hope you will enjoy reading about the many achievements of our students and faculty that your generosity has made possible.

On that note, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and every individual who has served as a professional resource for our students and graduates. I often say that our alumni are our greatest strength, and that is largely because you take the time to open the door for one another and share professional advice. This speaks to the strength of our community and adds value to the BU Law diploma. If you have yet to do so, please let us know if you have an opportunity available or would like to learn more about getting involved. (See page 63.) I would also like to thank you all for your financial support during an important time in BU Law’s history. By supporting our Building on Excellence Campaign, you are not only investing in our bright and passionate students, but you are also investing in the future of the law. I hope you will continue your support and your generosity and help us continue rewriting the book on legal education. I look forward to seeing you in my travels around the country this year, and I encourage you to visit the BU Law campus and visit our brand new home. After all, it’s thanks to you that this long-awaited dream has been realized.

BU Law alumni and faculty join forces to create the next level of legal education.

COVER STORY In the wake of seismic changes in the legal field and job market in recent years, Boston University School of Law, like countless other schools across the nation, entered a phase of reckoning. What are today’s employers looking for in new hires? What will the legal employment market look like in the coming years? What training, exactly, do today’s law students require, and in what form?

The BU Law community made a

major commitment to ensuring the

success of future students by launching its $80 million campaign in 2011 to support key priorities. The most visible symbol of the campaign is the long-awaited renovation of the law tower, scheduled for completion in fall 2015, and the opening of the new Sumner M. Redstone Building. Likewise, support for academic programming has expanded practical training opportunities through the Transactional Law Program, robust clinical offerings, and a growing writing program. But the School has not stopped there, Dean Maureen O’Rourke says. Rather, we are continually refining our knowledge of how best to prepare our students for their first jobs in a moment of industry-wide upheaval. “One strength of BU Law is our flexibility: We have a collegial faculty that is really willing to sit down and discuss issues and make changes






BU Law is constantly evolving its offerings to meet modernday employer needs while carefully maintaining the curricular strengths that have made it a top-tier law school. The School will continue its traditional emphasis on educating students in legal doctrine and guiding them as they develop excellent analytical and critical reasoning skills. “Although the alumni certainly had suggestions about how we might do things better, most of the reaction was, ‘Don’t rush into any huge changes; you’re doing great,’” says Professor of Law Gerry Leonard, who chaired the retreat planning committee. “Most of them felt they’d gotten a really good education at BU and looked back very positively at their experience here.” Indeed, the coexistence of extensive opportunities for experiential learning—including nearly a dozen clinical and countless externship opportunities—alongside coursework in traditional legal analysis, theory, and ethics has long been one of the School’s strengths. And such programs continue to exceed market expectations. For example, the ABA recently instituted a revision to its accreditation standard that requires students to complete at least six credit hours of primarily experiential courses. When BU Law’s task force on Experiential Learning assessed the School’s ability to meet this requirement, the results were gratifying: more than 83 percent of 2014 graduates met or exceeded the proposed standards, and options abound for the remaining students. Additionally, the School’s doctrinal courses increasingly incorporate practical exercises to reinforce students’ understanding of the subject matter. Such integration is key to the law school’s philosophy on experiential education: through practical 6




exercises, students are being tested to master the substantive law by demonstrating that they understand it. Beginning in January 2015, a new initiative created by the Competencies task force will give first-year students another indepth opportunity to put their doctrinal knowledge into practice. The Lawyering Lab will be an intensive simulation exercise introducing 1Ls to the practical skills involved in negotiating a business transaction. Working in groups, students will spend a week of Intersession immersed in the basics of client counseling, contract negotiation, and writing. “The aim of the Lawyering Lab is to expose students to how the skills they learn in their first-year classes can translate into practice,” says Naomi Mann, who co-chaired the task force. “We are saying to students: you understand the fundamentals of contract law at this point, after taking a doctrinal class; now we’re going to throw you into a simulation where you’re actually negotiating a contract and analyzing a contract. Every student who graduates from BU Law will have the practical experience of having analyzed and written a contract.”


The Lawyering Lab is the most visible initiative in a long-term strategy of expanding the School’s offerings to ensure that all students have opportunities to be exposed to the real-life lawyering skills sought by today’s employers. Client relations, business literacy, and writing are among the other skills BU Law alumni emphasized employers are seeking in new hires. Beginning with the Class of 2017, BU Law will now require all JD students to complete a course entitled Introduction to Business Fundamentals. The series of online, self-paced modules— which cover concepts from accounting to corporate finance—will promote business literacy, reinforce key legal concepts, and better prepare JD students to advise future clients. Additionally, BU Law piloted a three-week business education program for 15 students in August. The program taught core business competencies in finance, business analysis, marketing, and innovation, while fostering students’ personal leadership and


in response to them,” O’Rourke says. “But to prepare our students for a different marketplace, we had to understand what they need in order to be effective practicing lawyers—yet most of us are not practicing lawyers ourselves.” To find answers, the faculty looked outside its walls, to a constituency both well-versed in the on-the-ground reality of the legal field and invested in the School’s long-term success. Last year, 33 alumni joined faculty and administrators for a retreat to discuss the evolving industry and how the School can adapt its curriculum to best equip its graduates for today’s job market. Faculty and administrators who attended found the alumni response invaluable. “What was really exciting was that we were hearing directly from employers out in the field as to what skills and qualities they wanted graduates from BU Law to possess,” says Naomi Mann, clinical associate professor of law. “Our task moving forward from the retreat was to translate what the employers stated they wanted from graduates into programs and practices at the School.” In response to alumni feedback, Dean O’Rourke established five faculty task forces: Writing, Advising, Competencies, Experiential Learning, and Long-Term Planning. Each was tasked with assessing the School’s performance in its focus area and proposing any necessary changes to ensure that the BU Law education continues to align with employers’ evolving expectations and needs.




“LAW SCHOOLS ARE UNDERGOING tremendous changes and will continue to do so. Our job at BU Law is to offer the excellent legal education that we always have, but to continually evaluate how we can best prepare our graduates to succeed in an evolving profession.” DEAN MAUREEN A. O’ROURKE

professional communication skills. This training was designed to enhance each participant’s ability to succeed in a law firm or indeed in any organization. “We want to teach students that what they’re going to do when they get out of law school is, first and foremost, to understand their clients’ perspectives and needs,” Leonard says. In expanding its writing offerings, the School is again building upon a strong foundation—including the much-lauded First-Year Writing Seminar, a number of advanced writing courses, and single-credit supplements to doctrinal classes. Beginning this year, the task force on Writing has implemented an extracurricular certificate program featuring a series of practice-focused writing workshops offering instruction in composing documents from complaints to briefs, client emails, and academic papers.


Along with the expansion of experiential opportunities comes a greater need for mentorship, to assist students in integrating the knowledge gained from experiential learning into their educations in a coherent way. It is no longer sufficient to finish law school with excellent grades. In today’s tight market, employers are looking for graduates whose CVs reflect a consciously curated path toward developing competencies specific to the chosen specialty. “Some students come in to law school with a clear vision for what they want to do, and we can help them make thoughtful decisions about courses and summer experiences and extern-


ships to help support those goals. But many students don’t know, even after their first year, what they want to do,” says Professor Stacey Dogan, who chaired the Advising task force. “We need to help them navigate the ever-more-extensive choices available to them as law students—and help them do so with an eye toward defining and pursuing long-term career goals.” The task force has proposed a two-tiered advising system. The first tier relates specifically to course advising: students in the spring of their first year will be assigned faculty advisors, who will guide them in selecting their second-year courses, in coordination with the Career Development & Public Service Office. The second tier focuses more generally on faculty mentorship. Incoming first-year students will have the option of being matched with a faculty mentor with a common personal or professional interest. The goal is to give students the opportunity to get to know faculty members outside of class, and to facilitate richer faculty-student connections. “We are hoping to build a mentor system that fosters real relationships, to help students realize their goals both in law school and beyond,” Dogan says.


The vibrant new initiatives being instituted across the School represent the most recent steps in an ongoing process of growth and adaptation. “Some people talk about what’s going on in law schools today as a kind of radical change, or a dichotomy between substance and practice of law,” says Naomi Mann. “But in fact, here at the law school, we are taking legal education to the next level.” Faculty and administrators alike cite the contributions of BU Law alumni as key to the School’s continuing success in a moment of historic change for the legal industry. “Our students themselves, and in turn our alumni, have always been one of our great strengths,” Dean O’Rourke says. “We’re always interested in alumni feedback, and I encourage them to provide their input on an ongoing basis.” See pg. 63 for more information on how to get involved in BU Law’s journey to the next level of legal education. THE RECORD | Fall 2014



MOTION AFTER MOTION South Carolina’s first black probate judge reflects on the struggle for racial justice and equality. BY SHERYL FLATOW PHOTOGRAPH BY MATTHEW SCOTT

On November 6, 1990,

Bernard Fielding (’58) became the first African American elected probate judge in Charleston, South Carolina. He was not sworn in until August 19, 1991. The long delay was due to a challenge by his opponent, clearly racially motivated, that went all the way to the South Carolina Supreme Court before being decided in Fielding’s favor. That election underscored how far things had—and had not—come in the years since the Civil Rights Movement. “I think Charleston and the South in general have come a long way,” he says now. “We can be very proud of the victories, but there’s a long way to go.” Fielding’s personal story is very much a reflection of the struggle for racial justice and equality. 8


WITNESS TO HISTORY: Bernard Fielding has worked his whole life to break racial boundaries.

Born in Charleston in 1932, Fielding was the youngest of six children; two died in childhood. His parents both died when he was six years old. His father had selected a foster mother to raise the children and stipulated that the funeral home he founded in 1912 be sold in order to support them. Instead, the trustees of the will formed a corporation to keep it in the family; today, Bernard Fielding serves as its president. Fielding attended Hampton Institute (now Hampton University), where he met his wife, Conchita. He was enrolled in the ROTC program, and upon graduation in 1953 he received his commission. Half his class went to Korea; he wound up in Boston. He says he knew from the time he was 12 that he wanted to be a lawyer, so he enrolled at BU School of Law in the fall of 1955. He graduated three years later, and shocked his professors when he told them he was going to return to segregated South Carolina. “I have said on innumerable occasions, ‘The only difference between the North and the South was that in the South, we knew where we stood,’” Fielding says. He recalls responding to an ad posted in the lobby of the law school for a job as an insurance adjuster with a Boston firm. “When I walked in the door, this man looked at me and his bottom lip separated from his top lip,” says Fielding. “We chatted for about 45 minutes and he said, ‘I might as well be frank: I don’t think my insurance company is going to hire a colored insurance adjuster.’ I was about to graduate from one of the finest institutions in the country, and I wasn’t good enough to be an insurance adjuster.” Fielding went home, passed the bar, and in August 1958 was sworn in. He worked with an older black lawyer for three years before going out on his own, specializing in probate, real estate, personal injury, and wrongful death. But in 1962 he spent the summer representing civil rights demonstrators as the associate counsel for the NAACP. Among those he worked with were his brother, Herbert Fielding, who would go on to serve in the South Carolina House and Senate, and Matthew J. Perry, a leading civil rights lawyer. 10

“I’m proud of the battles I’ve been in and thankful I participated in them. I think of the many people who lost their jobs, their lives. Those of us that have been in the struggle for so long continue to do everything we can to try to change things. But it just seems that we’re going through a period now where it’s become more difficult than ever.”



“Perry was a brilliant advocate,” he says. “He’d make a motion, the judge would rule against him, and he’d say, ‘Thank you very kindly, Your Honor. Now that you’ve ruled against that one, let me give you another one.’ That was our strategy: motion after motion, knowing they were all going to be ruled against. But we did make a racket, and that was what we wanted to do.” During the 1960s and ’70s, Fielding served as general counsel for a variety of organizations, including the National Funeral Directors and Morticians Association. For more than fifty years he has offered his services for free to the YWCA of Greater Charleston, which his grandmother co-founded. In 1969, he became the first black president of the Young Democrats of Charleston County. He has also taught extensively about the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and what he refers to as “the most powerful legislation,” the Voting Rights Act of 1965. In 1976, with some astute backroom maneuvering, Fielding was appointed associate probate judge by the Charleston County Council. “In the entire state of South Carolina, only seven or eight of the probate judges were lawyers,” he says. “Yet I would hear statements like, ‘Well, we’re only going to appoint a qualified black.’ There I was, a trial lawyer with many years of experience, and there were questions about whether I was qualified.” Fielding served as associate probate judge for 14 years. In 1990, when the longtime probate judge for Charleston County chose not to seek re-election, Fielding decided to run for his seat. “My opponent was Chris Merrill, an insurance agent who never saw the inside of a law school,” he says. “About two weeks before the election, he put out postcards all over the county with a picture of me that was as black as the shoes I’m wearing. Two days before the election, he ran an ad that included a picture of me to let white people know that I’m black. Race permeated the election.” On November 7, the Charleston Post and Courier declared Merrill the winner. But the absentee ballots had not yet been counted, and when they were, Fielding had won by 454 votes.

Merrill asked for a hearing before the Charleston County Election Commission. It lasted eight hours, with Merrill’s side alleging irregularities by poll workers in two predominantly black districts, Wadmalaw Island and McClellanville. The board dismissed the protest. Merrill next appealed to the State Election Commission, which overturned the previous decision 3–2 and called for a new election, despite the fact that the people making the charges could not substantiate their claims, there was no corroborating evidence, and there hadn’t been a single challenge to any of the votes. This time, Fielding appealed to the South Carolina Supreme Court, which upheld his victory on July 23, 1991. When Fielding finally took office, he received just 60 percent of his predecessor’s salary—in fact, a $10,000 pay cut from his associate salary. “About a year later, one of the two blacks on the council got them to restore the $10,000,” he says, “but I never got paid the full probate judge salary.” Fielding lost his bid for a second term four years later and went back to practicing law and helping out at the funeral home. He says he has never regretted his decision to remain in South Carolina. “I’m proud of the battles I’ve been in and thankful I participated in them,” he says. “I think of the many people who lost their jobs, their lives. Those of us that have been in the struggle for so long continue to do everything we can to try to change things. But it just seems that we’re going through a period now where it’s become more difficult than ever.” As the country marks the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act this year, and the Voting Rights Act next year, Fielding sees a long road ahead. “The United States Supreme Court alone gutted the Voting Rights Act by taking out a huge section,” he says. “There are 30-some states that have enacted or are in the process of enacting anti-voting laws specifically designed to keep people of color from voting. The struggle for freedom and equality continues.”

Daniel D. Rubinstein

(’95) is no stranger to high-profile cases. From prosecutions involving narcotics and gangs to terrorism, he’s racked up an impressive scorecard. In 2007, the BU Law alum was recognized by the Department of Justice with the Director’s Award for Superior Performance as an Assistant US Attorney for his trial work in the prosecution of several car dealers in Chicago who laundered more than $20 million of drug money and sent some of those proceeds to Iran. He also has twice received the Chicago Crime Commission’s Stars of Distinction Award for significant trials in Chicago. One involved the indictment and conviction of 47 Black Disciples gang members, including its leaders, for a large-scale narcotics trafficking conspiracy along with committing numerous shootings in aid of racketeering. Moving to private practice in 2008, he has continued to handle headline-making cases, representing clients from energy company executives in connection with the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion to the world’s second-largest domain name registrar. So when the case against the nephew of former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley in the matter of the death of David Koschman was reopened for investigation, Rubinstein was well equipped for his appointment as deputy special prosecutor. 14

A CHALLENGING CASE The case was based on a 2004 incident in which the former mayor’s nephew, Richard J. Vanecko, was involved in a physical altercation with Koschman outside a bar. Eleven days later, Koschman died. The case was twice investigated by the Chicago Police Department and the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. In 2004, authorities cited lack of witness identification because Vanecko was not picked out of a lineup that occurred almost a month after the incident. Further, they concluded that even if the offender could be identified, it was self-defense. While no one was charged, the case remained open. In 2011, the Chicago Sun-Times issued a Freedom of Information Act request and began looking into the case. The resulting articles raised questions of whether charges were not pursued because of Vanecko’s connection to Mayor Daley. As a result, the Chicago Police Department conducted another investigation in 2011, and concluded that it could now identify the offender by process of elimination and that he acted in self-defense. The victim’s family then moved to file a state petition to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the case, and in 2012 a judge appointed Dan K. Webb, chairman of Winston & Strawn LLP and the former US Attorney for the Northern District of

Illinois. Rubinstein, a partner at Winston & Strawn, was asked to serve as deputy special prosecutor, given his background as both a state and federal prosecutor. The Winston & Strawn team was tasked with investigating whether charges should have been filed for Koschman’s death and whether the Police Department and State’s Attorney’s Office failed to properly investigate the case in 2004 and 2011.


Over the next 17 months, they convened a special grand jury for this “very unusual and challenging” case. “We were investigating an incident that happened eight and a half years ago, so crimes like aggravated battery and obstruction of justice that have a three-year statute of limitations were not available. Also, many of the documents you would normally collect were simply not available,” recalls Rubinstein. He notes that the case involved 146 witness interviews, 160 subpoenas, and 22,000 documents totaling 30,000 pages of telephone records, police reports, etc. Ultimately, through circumstantial evidence, they estabDan Rubinstein rejoined his lished Vanecko as the offender practice at and that it was not self-defense.

Further, the two witnesses with the clearest view consistently testified that Koschman was punched, not pushed. The special prosecution team, explains Rubinstein, felt it had enough evidence to go forward. Vanecko was indicted on December 3, 2012, for involuntary manslaughter and his trial was set for February 2014. A defense motion to dismiss was denied on January 9, 2014, and Vanecko pled guilty as charged on January 31, 2014, issuing a “genuine” apology to the victim’s mother in the courtroom. “This was significant. It was one of those rare moments in my nearly 20-year career as a lawyer where I felt that not only had we achieved the right result, but we also gave the victim’s mother some sense of closure,” he says. Rubinstein adds that this case was a “big win” for the prosecution. He explains, “It had twice been declined for prosecution, involved a long lag time between the incident and our investigation, and had other issues like lack of witness identification, intoxication by some witnesses, and statute of limitations. We achieved a just result that apparently hadn’t been achievable prior to the appointment of a special prosecutor.” The Chicago Sun-Times described the conviction of Vanecko as a “stunning” and “remarkable” achievement. In September, BU Law recognized Rubinstein’s accomplishments by presenting him with a Silver Shingle Award for Service to the Community during Alumni Weekend 2014. 16

As for the investigation related to the police and State’s Attorney’s Office, Rubinstein’s team did not issue any indictments. “Any actions in the 2004 investigation were barred by the statute of limitations, and we determined there was insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt any violation of Illinois criminal law as to the actions taken in the subsequent reinvestigations. As to the issue of whether the Daley family or others at their direction exercised undue political influence on the investigations, we found there was no evidence of that,” he says.


Rubinstein’s interest in criminal law began prior to law school. While an undergraduate student at Brown University, he spent his summers back home in California working at the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office. At BU Law, he enrolled in the Criminal Law Clinic and (thanks to a policy change) became the first student in the Public Defender Program to conduct a jury trial. Under the tutelage of Professor Wendy Kaplan, his client was acquitted. Following graduation, he clerked for US District Court Judge Ernest Torres in Rhode Island, where he observed a large Mafia trial and set his sights on becoming an Assistant US Attorney. After the clerkship, he worked in the Alameda County DA’s Office as a deputy DA before joining the Los Angeles US Attorney’s Office, where he ultimately worked in the public corruption unit. Moving to Chicago with his wife, whom he met while clerking in Rhode Island, Rubinstein worked in the Chicago US Attorney’s Office, where he served in the gangs, narcotics, and complex fraud units. He also served as one of the office’s terrorism coordinators, which stemmed from his work on the money laundering case. In 2008, he decided to enter private practice to leverage the skills he had gained as a trial lawyer and investigator. Rubinstein explains, “I had accomplished what I set out to do in the US Attorney’s Office, which was to develop, indict, and try several big cases. I was ready for new challenges in private practice.” Now that the Vanecko case is over, the father of two daughters is back at his regular practice at Winston & Strawn, which was recently awarded The National Law Journal’s “Chicago Litigation Department of the Year” for white-collar defense. Rubinstein represents corporations and individuals in complex civil, criminal, and regulatory matters. He also teaches federal criminal practice as a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School and sits on the board of the Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund. Looking back, Rubinstein credits his time at BU Law with much of his career success. “I had a fantastic legal education. The faculty, especially Professors Tracey Maclin and Wendy Kaplan, really challenged and mentored me. My experience at BU definitely provided me with the strong foundation upon which I launched my legal career.”

THE RECORD | Fall 2014



Kenneth P. Morrison (‘83)


fter graduating from Yale University, Ken Morrison (’83) did not want to practice law. As a young economic consultant, he envisioned a future in investment banking or consulting—not the law—while helping Cravath, Swaine & Moore prepare the testimony of economists for US v. IBM. Even when he dual-enrolled at BU Law and MIT’s Sloan School of Management, he had “low expectations for law school.” Morrison now laughs at that notion, saying he has “never looked back” since accepting his first legal position after law school. Two years later, he was recruited by classmate Kevin Van Wart (’82) to Kirkland & Ellis’s Chicago office, where he has practiced law ever since. Today Morrison is partner in charge of Kirkland’s top-ranking Asset Finance & Securitization Practice group. Over the last 30 years, he has established one of the top securitization practices in the United States. He has represented hundreds of originators, underwriters, conduit sponsors, services, and other parties in transactions involving auto, real estate, and other specialty asset classes. And he has been active in asset-backed securities reform matters, taking leading roles in drafting a number of comment letters regarding the DoddFrank Act, waterfall computer programs, auto sector disclosure, and other matters. When Morrison was a student at BU Law, the practice area of securitization did not exist. But three of his classmates, he notes, are now leading the field: Dan Mette (’82), a securitization lawyer at FisherBroyles in New York, was in Morrison’s 1L study


group; Stephen Sepinuck (’84), professor and associate dean of administration at Gonzaga University School of Law, edited Morrison’s note in the American Journal of Law & Medicine; and Robert Khuzami (’83), former director of enforcement for the US Securities and Exchange Commission and current partner in Kirkland’s Government & Internal Investigations Practice, was the editor-in-chief of AJLM during their 3L year. Morrison says that he enjoys the intellectual challenge that comes along with practicing in such a rapidly evolving area. Every day he is required to apply the critical reasoning and analysis that first attracted him to the law during his days at BU. And now, in light of his professional success, Morrison feels driven to give back, particularly in ways that impact education. An Eagle Scout, Morrison served as scoutmaster of

Troop 5 in Wilmette, Illinois, for 10 years before joining the board of directors of the Northeast Illinois Council of the Boy Scouts of America. “I have found it really energizing because you’re working with youth and instilling values in them and helping them to grow up,” he says. “I feel the same way about law students—I really enjoy providing guidance and helping graduates who can represent clients zealously.” Both of his sons, John and Thomas, are also Eagle Scouts. Morrison and his wife, Susan, have been invaluable resources to Boston University and the School of Law in recent years. Last semester, for example, he was on campus to guest lecture in a secured transactions class, have lunch with students, and offer individual counseling to a number of students—one of whom ended up landing a job with Kirkland after heeding his advice.

He has given generously toward BU Law’s Campaign, in terms of both time and financial support, serving on the Dean’s Advisory Board and giving at the President’s Circle level in support of the Building Fund. As someone who prides himself on never having taken the elevators during his time in the law tower, Morrison says he is thrilled to be a part of the transformation of the law school campus. Morrison serves as the University’s chairman for the Midwest Region, and last year, he was elected to the University’s Board of Overseers, where he has enjoyed helping advance the strategic vision of the institution—a real change from the day-to-day practice of law, he says. It’s been particularly rewarding, given that his son, Thomas, an economics major and member of the men’s varsity crew team, graduated from the College of Arts & Sciences in May. “I think it is important to give back, and this is a place where I know I can make a real difference,” says Morrison of his reinvigorated dedication to BU and the School of Law. “Am I surprised at how much support the law school has received in recent years? I’m not sure—but it certainly is terrific, and it’s really exciting to be a part of it all.”

Annual Report of Giving

JULY 1, 2013–JUNE 30, 2014

The School of Law reached many milestones this year: the completion of the Sumner M. Redstone Building and beginning of the law tower renovation; contributions to the Law Fund exceeding $1 million; and a big win on the first-ever University-wide Annual Giving Day.

The new Sumner M. Redstone Building


LETTER FROM THE CAMPAIGN CHAIR Dear BU Law community, We recently passed the mid-way point of BU Law’s first comprehensive fundraising campaign and already we have a great deal to celebrate. Since the kickoff of our Building on Excellence Campaign in 2010, alumni and friends of the law school have committed more than $51 million toward our overall $80 million goal. Most notably, we are delighted to report we reached and will likely surpass our goal for donations to the Law Building Fund. This extraordinary outpouring of support means BU Law will now have first class facilities to match its historically top-notch faculty and student body. With the dedication of the Sumner M. Redstone Building in 2014, and the reopening of a completely renovated and reinvented law tower in 2015, BU Law is inaugurating a new and exciting era. This is all thanks to the hard work and generosity of our donors, listed on the following pages. Their support, and yours, is vital to the dean’s mission of making BU Law the best place in the country to be a law student. With the building projects successfully under way, we now turn our focus to supporting the people and programs that fill those buildings and make BU Law a truly special place. In this next phase of our campaign, we ask your support for the following four priorities: • Student Scholarships and Financial Aid: $3.2 million raised/$15 million goal We want the very best students to attend BU Law, regardless of financial means. It is also important that our alumni be able to pursue their career aspirations without burdensome debt. • Professorships and Faculty Support: $3.3 million raised/$10 million goal Endowed professorships help us recruit and retain faculty; we were once again ranked as one of the top law schools for teaching by the Princeton Review. These coveted positions acknowledge excellence and provide funding for scholarly research and pursuits. • Academic Programming: $1.1 million raised/$8 million goal BU Law has always been a place of innovation and forward-thinking. Donor support allows us to sustain our areas of excellence and important experiential learning opportunities like clinics, externships, and study abroad and to continually respond to the evolving needs of students, alumni, and their employers. • Law Fund: $5 million raised/$7 million goal The Law Fund provides the vital flexible funding used by Dean O’Rourke to create unique initiatives, leverage unforeseen opportunities, and provide additional financial aid like scholarships and public interest fellowships. On behalf of Boston University School of Law, I thank all of our generous donors, and encourage everyone to visit the magnificent new Sumner M. Redstone Building. It stands as a testament not only to those who made it possible, but also to the value and fondness so many hold for BU Law.

BUILDING ON EXCELLENCE CAMPAIGN LEADERSHIP As part of the Campaign for Boston University: Choose to be Great, the School of Law has launched an $80 million comprehensive fundraising effort.

Dear fellow BU Law alumni, Even if you haven’t recently been in Boston to see the construction of the Sumner M. Redstone Building, you may have participated in BU Law alumni activities all over the country (and globe). Without a doubt, the new building is profound evidence of support from the University, community, and alumni. The reinvigoration of alumni activities in cities other than Boston is less tangible but equally noteworthy. These events provide opportunities to connect, develop, and share our talents and experiences. In major US cities, our Alumni Association develops programs, events, and seminars that strengthen our connections and provide a career-long resource. As one example, alumni find that BU Law graduating students are at the top of the list when new hires are considered. We know the talent that comes out of BU Law, so I ask you to recognize this and be a resource for students for networking and job placement. Please contact the Career Development Office at for more information. As you come together with BU Law alumni in your region or in your practice areas, I’m confident you’ll agree that the School of Law educates students not only in the theory of law, but also in the practice and application, so they enter the job market fully prepared. We share a pride in our great institution, and I hope you’ll join other alumni continuing to support the School through the Building on Excellence Campaign or the Annual Fund. If you stop by campus, you’ll notice some exciting changes. Now that the Sumner M. Redstone Building is open, the yearlong law tower renovations are under way. If you can’t make the trip, I know you’ll enjoy joining your fellow BU Law alumni to participate this year in supporting the School, your fellow alumni, current students, and coming generations of aspiring lawyers!

THE BIRTH AND GROWTH OF PIP Back at BU Law, Gollin and two classmates—Joe Ronson and Dan Van Doren (both ’85)—began thinking about how to broaden the choices for their fellow students who shared that desire, but couldn’t afford to follow it. Together they founded PIP, made Gollin its first president, and agreed upon a simple mission: to provide financial support through grants to students seeking summer work in otherwise unpaid public interest internships. The founders and friends raised enough funds to be able to offer the first PIP grants to 16 BU law students in the summer of 1984, with awards ranging from $1,000 to $2,000. Thirty years later, PIP is one of the leading law student groups at Boston University, fostering a commitment to nonprofit, government, and pro bono work, and promoting


SECURING A LEGACY At the PIP auction in April, it was also announced that Gollin’s family has established the Michael Gollin Fund for Public Interest and Intellectual Property at Boston University. The endowed fund will provide a permanent source of funding that will help students pursue public interest and intellectual property law, regardless of their financial constraints. It wraps Gollin’s two passions into one source of support, giving full testimony to his belief that the path to fulfillment requires both creativity and service to others. BU Law welcomes contributions to the Michael Gollin Fund and the Public Interest Project. Please contact Nate O’Connell ( for more information.
