Advancing the Consensus on Global Human Rights

“A

ll of us need to exert a renewed effort to ensure that we, as Americans, will be able to celebrate, and not apologize for, our compliance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” said former President Carter during opening remarks for Advancing the Consensus. The three-day conference, organized by Emory Law students in honor of the sixtieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, brought together a distinguished group of human rights lawyers, scholars, practitioners, and activists to discuss the declaration in light of its successes and shortcomings. Adopted by the U.N. General Assembly in 1948, the declaration marked the beginning of a global consensus that put human rights at the forefront of international concerns. Advancing the Consensus — a joint venture of Emory Law students from the Emory Public Interest Committee (epic), the Emory International Law Society, and the Emory International Law Review — centered on three

themes challenging the state of human reducing unnecessary plastic and paper rights: environmentalism, globalizawaste. The students also planted two tion, and religion. trees at the law school to offset the Nobel Peace Prize recipient, ­lawyer, conference’s carbon footprint. and human rights activist Shirin Ebadi, a keynote speaker, argued Islam and human rights can coexist — a topic widely debated in Islamic states and around the world. “Human rights is an international value system,” she said. “It has nothing to do with the East or the West, with Muslims or Christianity, but belongs to the entire human race.” Ebadi challenged Emory students to educate themselves on human rights issues throughout the world. “You young American people are the future of this world and can make it a better place.” In the spirit of human rights, several efforts were taken to make the conference sustainable, including limiting energy consumption and Keynote speaker Shirin Ebadi

mory Law alumnus Gregory L. Riggs 79l was appointed associate dean of student services and community engagement at Emory Law in October. In this newly created role, Riggs oversees Emory Law’s offices of Admission, Career Services, Student Affairs, and Student Records. “Greg’s considerable experience in the Atlanta legal community and his intimate knowledge of Emory Law, coupled with his many years of strong management experience at Delta, make him the perfect candidate for this new position,” Dean David F.

Emory Law Appoints Two New Clinic Directors

E

mory Law has appointed new leadership for its ­clinical programs in international humanitarian law and environmental law. Laurie Blank assumes the helm of Emory Law’s newest clinic, the International Humanitarian Law Clinic, for the 2008 – 2009 academic year. She replaces Charles D. Swift, former visiting associate professor and acting director, who ably put the clinic on firm foundations. Commander Swift’s one-year appointment ended August 31. Blank has extensive experience in international humanitarian law and played a key role in establishing the ihl Clinic. She served as its program Blank director last year and has been a research and teaching assistant for Emory Law Professor Charles Shanor. The goal of the ihl Clinic is to pair Emory Law students with groups who need assistance in cases and projects involving international humanitarian law, allowing students to gain firsthand experience and make significant contributions to this increasingly important area of law. “In the clinic, we work every day with organizations, law firms, tribunals, and other entities to assist in prosecuting or defending individuals, raising public awareness of past, present, and future atrocities, and ensuring the protection of civilians and combatants in conflict regions around the world,” Blank said. “I am delighted to have this opportunity to help students engage in real-world, meaningful work in the field of international humanitarian law and, at the same time, to provide practical assistance to these organizations so they can better achieve their goals.”

Prior to Emory Law, Blank spent four years with the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C., focusing on international humanitarian law, transitional justice, war crimes tribunals, and human rights projects. She earned her jd from New York University School of Law, where she served as the Henry L. Boudin Fellow for Human Rights. Blank also worked as an associate at Shearman & Sterling. Larry Sanders heads Emory Law’s Turner Environmental Law Clinic, after serving as staff attorney for six years. He has worked with Emory Law students on a variety of environmental cases important to the protection of Georgia’s natural resources during his tenure. Established in 1998 with a Turner Foundation grant, the Turner Clinic provides free legal assistance to individuals, community groups, and nonprofit organizations seeking to protect and restore the natural environment for the benefit of the public. The clinic trains students to be effective environmental attorneys with high ethical standards and a sensitivity to the natural environment. Sanders “Over the next year, the Turner Clinic’s ongoing work on nuclear power will continue as our primary focus,” Sanders said. “I also hope to continue working on cutting edge environmental law issues like global climate change, energy, water rights, and protection of endangered species. Prior to Emory Law, Sanders served as director and founder of the RiverLaw Project for the South Yuba River Citizens League in Nevada City, California. He also has worked as an associate for the Berliner Law Offices. He received his jd from University of Oregon Law School and his bachelor’s degree from University of Chicago.

Jumpstarting a Legal Career after Political Disappointment

Q

uoc Van 08l may have lost his bid to go to Washington in August, but he doesn’t regret his decision to forego a more traditional start to his legal career. “I made the right decision for me,” Van said. “I was able to devote full time to it. I did it because I was at a good point in my life with no responsibilities.” Van defied the political odds by collecting 5,800 signatures to earn a spot on Florida’s primary ballot for the Eighth Congressional District. Instead of pursuing a second-year summer associate job, Van spent his summers and holiday breaks collecting

the necessary signatures. Then, while classmates studied for the bar, he campaigned for the Democratic nomination. “While others were applying for their second-year summer associate jobs, I was campaigning,” Van said. “This meant I didn’t have a job lined up after graduation.” No longer a political candidate, he is studying for the February bar exam. “Since I didn’t take the bar this summer, I’m having to wait an extra eight months to get a job. Now, I need to find a job and pay off my debt. It’s my new focus.”

Two Emory Law students gain insight into India and themselves while spending a summer abroad. by Timothy L. Hussey

I dream of

India Then the Bi-Coloured-Python-Rock-Snake came down from the bank, and knotted himself in a double-clove-hitch round the Elephant’s Child’s hind legs, and said, ‘Rash and inexperienced traveller, we will now seriously devote ourselves to a little high tension, because if we do not, it is my impression that yonder self-propelling man-of-war with the armour-plated upper deck’ (and by this, O Best Beloved, he meant the Crocodile), ‘will permanently vitiate your future career.’ — Rudyard Kipling’s The Elephant’s Child

“I enjoy working in the culture instead of just being a tourist. When you work there and you have a purpose there, it’s different than just traveling.” — currey hitchens 09l

C

urrey Hitchens 09l and Shijuade Kadree 09l always wanted to visit India.

“I am a huge reader of fiction,” said Hitchens, “so a lot of the stuff I read as a child was about India. I had always wanted to go, and I knew I wanted to go for more than a visit. “I enjoy working in the culture instead of just being a tourist. When you work there and you have a purpose there, it’s different than just traveling.” Hitchens spent three months in India working for the South Asia Human Rights Documentation Center through an epic grant. Kadree spent the summer conducting field research for her joint jd and master’s in public health. “When I applied to the mph program, I knew going into global environmental health we had to do our summer work abroad,” Kadree said. “I have always had an interest in traveling to India and trying to gain some sense of the incredible ethnic and religious diversity there.”

‘Rash and inexperienced traveller’ Kadree’s trip was an exercise in perseverance. She lugged 120 pounds of equipment for two days of air travel. “Students who had been to India to do research warned us about getting through customs,” she said. “We had cash so we could get through, but luckily, the woman ahead of us tried to run through and we just moved to the side and slipped in,” she said. Kadree and her research partner were duped into missing their train to Agra and were dropped off in Delhi. They paid $400 to hire a car to drive them to Agra. “On the highway, everyone is honking, no one uses mirrors, and our driver is driving 50 – 60 miles per hour in dense traffic,” she said. “You see donkeys, elephants, camels, and food stands all along the road. People who 10

emory lawyer

are born there grow up understanding their environment. You just have to trust they know what they are doing.” After spending so much time packing her equipment and worrying about customs, Kadree was surprised when she began unpacking. “I realized when I got to my room I had forgotten all of my clothes,” she said. “I only had the clothes I was wearing.” Mamta, her “house mother” at a lodge in Agra, took care of it. “We went to a seamstress, and I had clothes made for me overnight,” she said. ‘Seriously devote ourselves’ Kadree performed a comparative analysis of air quality between the cities of Agra and Dayalbagh. She wanted to study environmental improvements made in Dayalbagh, a smaller, religious community, to see if they had a significant, positive impact on overall air quality. “They limit motorized vehicle use and ration water,” Kadree said of Dayalbagh. A few weeks into her stay, Kadree’s equipment broke, forcing her to modify her research. “When my equipment broke down,” she said, “my project changed significantly.”

A little high tension’ Despite interest in India from an early age, it wasn’t until Hitchens became involved with death penalty habeas work in Georgia that her path to India became clear. “I was visiting an inmate on death row who I formed a relationship with when I worked with the Georgia Resource Center,” Hitchens said. “I had been telling everyone that I wanted to go to India.” While there, she met Bo King, a federal defender lawyer who had interned in India. He gave her the contact information for the South Asia Human Rights Documentation Center. Hitchens contacted the center and discovered her path to India. She worked in New Delhi, where she lived in an apartment and joined eleven other interns working at the center. The group included ­lawyers and students from across the United States, Shijuade Kadree 09L (left) and Currey Hitchens 09L visited the Taj Mahal. including two from the University of Georgia, as well as lawyers from Australia, Scotland, and England.

‘Your future career’ Both Hitchens and Kadree are grateful for their time in India. Now they are busy planning their futures. “I am still very interested in environmental justice work,” Kadree said. Next summer she plans to work with New York Lawyers for the Public Interest where she will focus on environmental justice work, health care access, and ­disability rights.

“I found myself very fulfilled working directly with people and using my advocacy toolkit. Law school is another tool to help me make an impact.” — shijuade kadree 09l

“My parents always taught me to whom much is given, much is expected,” Kadree said. “I found myself very content and fulfilled working directly with people and using my advocacy toolkit. Law school is another tool to help me fulfill what my parents taught me and to make an impact. “That’s how I view law. I see it as a step. Public health brings in another approach,” she said. “I appreciate the interplay in my head between the two.” She said she sees herself working for an organization like nylpi after graduation, but she is keeping her options open. “Part of me feels that working for the government and having an opportunity to litigate similar issues but with federal backing would be a great opportunity for training,” Kadree said. “The practice of law is a springboard into other areas. A lot of times people think of the environment, as in ‘I need to recycle or buy locally grown produce.’

Terror in Mumbai When terrorists attacked the Indian city of Mumbai in late November, a three-day standoff with police ensued. Nearly 200 people were killed. The normally peaceful region was in shock as leaders focused blame on neighboring Pakistan from where the terrorists were said to have come. Although neither student worked in Mumbai, both Shijuade Kadree 09L and Currey Hitchens 09L said their personal safety weighed on their minds as they traveled to India. Both became more aware of their surroundings. Hitchens, who crossed into Pakistan, said her parents were not happy when they learned of her side trip. “When they found out I was going to Pakistan, they were surprised,” she said. “They were very worried about me going to India because it is dangerous. There was a bombing at the congress in New Dehli before I went and some bombings after I got back. “India does have a lot of terrorist activity but they aren’t exactly targeting Americans,” Hitchens said. According to news reports, however, tourists were the target of the Mumbai attack. CNN reported five Americans were killed during the three-day siege. “I guess there was reason to fear, but I don’t normally think about things like that,” Hitchens said.

“The air is all you have,” she said. “If it isn’t being cleaned up, there isn’t much you can do. If the human consequences are death and cancer, there will be no one around to appreciate all these other changes we have made.” Hitchens has applied for an Equal Justice Works grant and hopes to spend next summer working with the Georgia Law Center for the Homeless to help teens and youth, ­specifically queer youth. “Through Equal Justice Works you work with an organization that already exists,” she said. “One of the points of the grant is to work with a population that your group doesn’t work with or open up something new. The Georgia Law Center doesn’t work with teenagers or focus on queer kids so I am going to try and do that.” Both point to their experiences in India as having deeply impacted their futures as lawyers and their individual quests to become better advocates for their clients. “I was impressed by the people of India,” Hitchens said. “I saw very few people who were unhappy. Most of them still tried, still lived, still were very happy. “I felt like there was hope,” she said.

Championing

Health Care Reform



Kathie McClure 79L hits the purple campaign trail to encourage voters to join the national debate  by Holly Cline

F

rom July through October, Kathie McClure 79l followed the campaign trail. She drove a ­purple bus from her Atlanta home, through the Carolinas, up to Ohio and Pennsylvania, and then back down to Florida with several stops in between. McClure wasn’t campaigning for a particular ­candidate or party. She was championing a cause — affordable health care for every American. In all, the Atlanta attorney drove more than 6,500 miles, stopping in thirteen states, to encourage people from all walks of life to not only vote, but to join the debate about our nation’s health care. Why is she so passionate? McClure faced the challenges of our health care system firsthand and believes reform is possible if Americans get educated and speak up. “My son, Chris, was diagnosed with Type I diabetes at 14, and my daughter Caitlin developed epilepsy at 15 after a soccer injury,” McClure said. “Chris is a law student now and cannot buy a private insurance policy. No one will sell him one, even though he’s very healthy. Caitlin can buy an individual policy, but the insurance company charges her 50 percent more than a ‘healthy’ person and won’t cover her epilepsy medication.” After dealing with her children’s health care frustrations, McClure began researching and talking with others about this issue. The figures were staggering, and the stories warranted doing something more than just complaining. “In 2007, only 60 percent of employers offered health insurance, primarily because they couldn’t afford health 14

insurance costs. Also, 47 million Americans did not have insurance, even though our country spent $2.2 trillion on health care,” McClure said. “Today, 42 percent of Americans are uninsured or underinsured. Other countries cover all their citizens for half the money, and they get ­better care.”

Answering a call to action In what she calls a moment of insanity, McClure decided she could not just sit and do nothing. She recognized millions of Americans were facing similar or worse predicaments than her kids. She had to tell her story and help others tell theirs to bring about a real solution to the lack of affordable health care that is profoundly affecting a huge percentage of our population. For a year and a half, through the help of friends and family, she founded the nonprofit organization VoteHealthcare.org, launched a website, bought a purple bus on eBay, and plotted her Bandwagon Tour. “When I started telling people I quit my job to drive a little purple school bus around the county to talk to ­strangers about health care, it felt a little crazy,” McClure said. “But it’s been an incredible journey.” McClure’s journey started July 13. Seeking to capture the energy from the presidential election to promote her cause and encourage change, she planned tour stops for where debates and rallies for the candidates were held. She armed herself with a video camera and nonpartisan material to educate political supporters about health care issues.

Kathie McClure 79L stopped in key battleground states, including Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Alabama, and Florida, as well as Washington D.C. Her goal is to visit each state in the bus.

“The systematic problems we face today are so huge they have infiltrated the middle class. Affordable health care is not just an issue among the poor anymore. Middleclass Americans who are more likely to vote are now being affected,” she said. “People think if they work hard and play by the rules, they should be able to afford to go to the doctor, but that’s not true anymore. And with the recession and rising unemployment, the problem is getting worse — fast.”

McClure finds the real injustice in the fact that there aren’t affordable options for families like Frank’s.

Promoting hope, not politics

On her tour, McClure focused on people. She emphasized the importance of political will — calling representatives to ask for change. She motivated people to speak. “Until voters act on this, complain about it, and raise hell, it’s not going to change. Right now too many people are getting rich from health care,” McClure said. “Part of it is motivating people and convincing them that their voices matter. A vast number of people are cynical about government and don’t think things will ever change, so they do nothing. When we do that, we’re surrendering our power to bring change. It’s our government. We may not like the way it runs, but it’s our obligation to fix it.” The day she left Atlanta, alone in the purple bus, McClure doubted her decision. “The day I left for this tour it was raining, and I sat in my driveway and cried. I was terrified to leave the world I knew. I quickly learned that the power of the human spirit is ready to be tapped and put to good use. Now, well I’m just getting started. People are looking for ways to make a difference, and I want to be part of that.” Kathie McClure and her family stand in front of the famous purple bus. Her children, daughter Caitlin, and son Chris, inspired her to champion health care reform in her Promoting health care reform isn’t purple bus. Her husband, Jay McClure 75L, was supportive. McClure’s only mission. She hopes to inspire more peers to take action. McClure’s goal was to engage people in a conversation in “Pick an issue that matters to others and do something about it. I think that everyone with an education is blessed. which they could put aside their political leanings and see We have power as attorneys, and we use it to serve the health care as a problem we need to solve.

Barton Clinic Helps Lead Effort to Rewrite Georgia’s Juvenile Code by Liz Chilla

Leslie Gresham (from left), Linda Pace 75L, Beth Reimels 01L, and Chuck Cantey finetune a working draft of the proposed new juvenile code for Georgia.

E

mory Law’s Barton Child Law and Policy Clinic is playing a lead role in a historic initiative for Georgia’s children — the passage of a new juvenile code. Through its work with justGeorgia, a statewide coalition advocating for fairness in Georgia’s juvenile justice and social service systems, the Barton Clinic is turning hard work into reality. “Georgia has a rare opportunity to comprehensively update the laws affecting our most vulnerable children,” says Karen Worthington 94l, founding director of the Barton Clinic. justGeorgia, established in 2006 with a grant from the Sapelo Foundation, combines the resources of the Barton Clinic, the Georgia Appleseed Center for Law and Justice, and Voices for Georgia’s Children. Recognizing a need for juvenile justice reform in Georgia, the organization is spearheading an effort to propose a new juvenile code during the 2009 General Assembly. The juvenile code refers to Title 15 of the Official Code of Georgia, which governs juvenile court matters such as delinquency, child abuse, and neglect. The current code, introduced in 1971, has gone through a number of changes,

leaving it vague and outdated. The initial push to revise the code began four years ago, prior to the establishment of justGeorgia. Former Barton Clinic director and then-president of the Council of Juvenile Court Judges Robin Nash 78l challenged the State Bar of Georgia’s Young Lawyers Division (yld) to take on the project. The yld’s first step was to ­create a “model” for how the code should look and function. Leading this effort were Barton Clinic alumna Soledad McGrath 02l, Professor Lucy McGough 66l of Louisiana State University, and Judge Velma Tilley of the Bartow County Juvenile Court. “The goal when drafting the model code was to incorporate national best practices with what’s best for Georgia’s children, without being constrained by political realities,” said Beth Reimels 01l, Barton Clinic policy and advocacy director. By March 2008, the yld released its proposed model juvenile code. “The Young Lawyers Division’s proposed model code is based on four years of methodical study of the laws of all fifty states, consultation with the nation’s leading children’s law experts, and solid evidence-based research,”

Worthington said. “It is exciting to know that Georgia could create a legal system truly designed for the best interests of the children it serves.” Concurrently, Georgia Appleseed, led by executive director Sharon Hill 85l, conducted hundreds of interviews with key stakeholders — juvenile court judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, elected officials, parents, and educators — to gather input on the current juvenile code. “Common Wisdom: Making the Case for a New Georgia Juvenile Code,” published in November, summarizes the input. Armed with the proposed model code and the stakeholder feedback, representatives from justGeorgia, including Reimels, began drafting the legislative package for the Georgia General Assembly. This process provided Barton Clinic students an opportunity to write and contribute to new legislation.

Established at Emory Law in 2000, the Barton Clinic is dedicated to ensuring safety, well-being, and permanency for neglected, abused, and court-involved children in Georgia.

Student Named to Equal Justice Works Board of Directors by Liz Chilla

S

tacy Tolos 10l has been named to the board of directors for Equal Justice Works, a nonprofit organization committed to supporting law students and lawyers working in the public interest. Her three-year term began in October. As one of only three law students on the twenty-eightmember board, Tolos provides a unique perspective on the needs of law students pursuing careers in the public ­sector. The organization, which Tolos refers to as the “public interest hub for law students,” offers a number of programs for law students and young lawyers, including an annual public service career fair, summer internships in public interest law, and the largest postgraduate legal ­fellowship program in the nation. In addition to the strategic and administrative duties of a board member, Tolos hopes to contribute to the organization’s mission through fundraising and speaking on the importance of public interest law. Her role with Equal Justice Works is the logical next step in a career devoted to community service. A Cincinnati, Ohio, native, Tolos began volunteering in middle school at a rural Tennessee day camp. “These 18

kids were giving me so much,” she said. “We would drop them off at home at the end of the day, and they had almost nothing. I thought, ‘Look at me. I go to a great public school, I have access to any extracurricular activities I want to do. I have supportive parents. I need to be doing something.’” Tolos attended Vanderbilt University on a community service scholarship, earning bachelor’s degrees in sociology and organizational development, as well as a master’s degree in public policy in education. While an undergraduate, she co-founded and co-taught a college-level course in corporate social responsibility, which is still in demand at Vanderbilt. Tolos founded the Synergy College Preparatory and Mentoring Program in Nashville, Tennessee, which provides college prep assistance to at-risk high school students. She also taught English in West Africa and co-coordinated the Education Without Borders International Conference in the United Arab Emirates. “When it comes to my interests in public service, I’m a generalist,” she said. “I can’t just pick one group I want to help because there are too many interesting and important issues. I just take the opportunities that are presented to me and try to make a difference.” At Emory, Tolos is active in the Emory Public Interest Committee (epic), the International Law Society, the International Humanitarian Law Clinic, and the Faculty Curriculum Committee. She served as co-chair for Advancing the Consensus, a three-day, student-organized conference held at Emory Law in October to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Tolos works as a legal intern and caseworker for the Health Law Partnership in Atlanta, Georgia. Tolos is not shy about her future plans. “I knew I wanted to change the world since I was in ninth grade. I figured that becoming president of the United States would be the best way to do it.”

Alumni Award Winners Join Forces To Help Injured Soldiers and Families

A

t the Distinguished Alumni Awards Reception, recipients John M. Dowd 65L, Teri Plummer McClure 88L, and Susan Hoy 74L bonded. That bond became collaboration when Dowd and McClure joined forces to benefit the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, www.semperfifund.org. Shortly after Thanksgiving, board member Dowd noticed the fund spent about $800,000 a month on express mail charges to ensure injured Marines and soldiers could access money for immediate needs. Founded in 2004 to aid injured soldiers and their families with travel, home, or medical expenses, the fund works to keep its administrative costs below 5 percent. “I called the director of one express mail company — a former Marine — to see if he could help, Dowd said. “He could not, so I called this magnificent lady at UPS to see if she could.”

Within hours, McClure contacted the appropriate UPS officials to work a rate deal for the fund. “I knew if we could do something, we would,” said McClure, who is senior vice president and general counsel for UPS. “The fact that the money goes immediately to the families for immediate care struck a cord with us.” The new significantly lower rate cuts costs, said Karen Guenther, founder and executive director. “It will help us save money so we can apply it to the wounded.” Dowd, a former Marine, said soldiers with catastrophic injuries recover twice as fast with their family members present. In the last four years, the Semper Fi Fund has given more than $26 million through 11,000-plus grants to injured soldiers.

C

alled a “legal Doogie Howser” by The Wall Street Journal law blog, Judge Catharina Dubbelday Haynes 86l was sworn in to the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on April 22. Her investiture was September 5 in Dallas. She was nominated on July 17, 2007, and confirmed by the full Senate on April 10, 2008. “For my confirmation hearing, I walked into the chamber saying to myself that I was there to offer myself in service to my country,” Haynes said. “My credentials, skills, and work ethic were being offered to my country.” Judge Haynes appreciates the public scrutiny judicial nominees undergo. “All citizens should be very glad there is such an extensive evaluation of someone to be a federal judge,” she said. “I’m very glad there are so many background checks — fbi starting at age 18, the White House vetting, Justice Department check, and aba review, as well as the Senate confirmation process.” One of seventeen active judges for the Fifth Circuit of Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi, Haynes works in threejudge panels to hear oral arguments and screen criminal and civil cases. She is the only Circuit Court judge in Dallas. Her time at Emory Law and eight-year tenure as a civil district judge for Texas helped prepare her for the caseload of the Fifth Circuit. “I gained good analytic and writing skills at Emory Law,” Haynes said. “I learned to juggle demands on my time — class schedule, interviews, law review, and extracurricular activities. “The process of handling thousands of cases as a state district judge with no resources — there are no law clerks to help manage the docket — gave me the benefit of time management discipline,” she said of state court. “It is helpful in determining how much time each case needs. “At the state district court, I had the experience of writing orders with explanations, as well as my own findings of fact and conclusions of law,” Haynes said. “These experiences have helped me meet the challenges and responsibilities of the federal appellate court. I also recognize the impact every decision makes, and I know every opinion is important.” On oral argument days, Haynes hears four to five cases with litigants having twenty minutes per side to make their

arguments, including judges’ questions. “You review the briefs and records then listen to the oral arguments,” she said. “You confer and reach a consensus then assign who will write the opinion. After the opinion is written, the other judges review it and make changes and comments.” Haynes also serves on screening panels to evaluate appeals. “In all practicality, the Fifth Circuit Court is the court of last resort for a majority of the cases it hears,” Haynes said. “All cases are significant. There are a wide variety of appeals,” she said. “Cases are reviewed by panels of three judges to see if they need oral arguments or if it can be handled through written submission.”

True Love

A

t her federal investiture, Judge Catharina Dubbelday Haynes 86L paid tribute to her husband, lawyer Craig Haynes. Haynes called her husband her biggest cheerleader and most accurate critic. “At my investiture, I mentioned when he said ‘for better or worse,’ I don’t think he expected three campaigns and a confirmation hearing,” Haynes said about her husband of twenty years. “Would you like to know the definition of true love?” the judge asked. “Normally when you need yard signs you get volunteers to help get them ready. Well, in my last campaign, I didn’t get advance notice that I needed 100 yard signs by the next morning. “So when my husband got home after a long day of depositions, I asked him if he could help me,” Haynes said. “He went to the garage and nailed those signs with an expression of ‘I would not do this for anyone else but you.’ That is true love.”

Class Notes A Letter from the Alumni President Dear Fellow Alumni: Exciting things are happening at Emory Law. Don’t stand on the sidelines! Get involved. As your new alumni president since September, I appreciate your warm welcome at the recent reunions, New York City Barrister Reception, Distinguished Alumni Awards, and our monthly lunch and learn firm visits in Atlanta. The message I hear is clear: Emory Law alumni are eager to reconnect with their alma mater. My two-year term will focus on transforming our alumni community into an engaged professional network in Atlanta and beyond. Now more than ever, a rigorous alumni association is critical for career and referral networking, as well as professional development. In the coming months, you will hear about our reconstituted Emory Law Alumni Board whose mission is to foster the alumni community through enhanced programming and communications. Our national reach continues to broaden: in addition to existing chapters in New York City and Washington, D.C., I am pleased to report the establishment of alumni groups in Chicago and Los Angeles this year. These regional chapters are just one step in spreading the Emory message to all markets where our alumni practice. Emory Law is on the move. An active alumni association is a key component in Dean David F. Partlett’s plan for Emory Law’s success. Your involvement is needed and valued. Visit www.law.emory.edu/alumni to learn more about opportunities to help shape the success of our school and become involved (or more involved) in the Emory Law Alumni Association. I can also be reached at hcohn@kslaw.com and look forward to hearing from you.

Partlett said. “We honor you tonight.” Partlett outlined Emory Law’s efforts to become more student centered. “This can only be done with the continuing financial and volunteer support from our alumni to help to ensure that the value of an Emory Law education continues to improve with time.” Phil Reese 66c 76b 76l, chair of the Emory Law Advisory Board and Campaign co-chair, thanked Barristers Club members for their unflagging support. He praised the University’s $21 million commitment to support Dean Partlett and his cabinet’s efforts to make Emory Law one of the finest law schools in the country. Reese highlighted new faculty, increased funding for scholarships to attract the brightest and most diverse student body, facility improvements, and enhanced programmatic offerings. Further evidence of the student-centered focus is the appointment of Gregory L. Riggs 79l as associate dean of student ­services and community engagement (see In Brief on page 5), the advisory board chair said. “The immediate impact of all of these efforts has been to raise our standing in the national rankings from 27th to 22nd since the dean arrived,” Reese said. “We wish to Greg Riggs 79L (left), Phil Reese 66C 76B 76L, and Susan Rosenberg 76L talk continue this momentum. Accordingly we at the Night at the Met reception for Barristers Club members in New York City. have embarked on a $35 million campaign Alyson Kay Higgins 05C 08L Josie L.

Giving Back

Working to Ensure the Future of the Barton Clinic by Wendy R. Cromwell

“My work with the Barton Clinic has had more of an impact on me than anything else I learned in the classroom.” — Stephen F. Fusco 98C 01L

“T

he Barton Child Law and Policy Clinic was my single best experience in law school,” said Stephen F. Fusco 98c 01l. Now a partner at Balch & Bingham llp in Atlanta, Fusco works to raise much-needed funds for the Barton Clinic. “When I am taking to people, I like to stress the impact of the Barton Clinic,” Fusco said. “The Barton Clinic is helping to rewrite the juvenile code [see story, page 17]. It helped rewrite the Georgia Code regarding the pimping of minors while I was a student and provides dfcs training, in addition to the academic work and research.” In his first month as fundraising co-chair, Fusco emphasizes the direct impact the clinic has on children. “I want to put a face to contributions and help people see the connection between their gift and that child. “I know the Barton Clinic needs funding,” he said. “Through my work, I meet a lot of attorneys who do pro bono work and are looking for ways to give money or give back.” Fusco is passionate about the hands-on experience the clinic provides to students. “There isn’t anything else that had such a direct impact on me. I took away practical experience regarding the applications of the law rather than just the theory from the classroom.” As a third-year student, he worked with the clinic to help change the statute governing the pimping of a minor from a misdemeanor to a felony.

“We did a fifty-state survey that showed Georgia was one of a few states remaining in which it was still a misdemeanor to pimp a child,” he said. “The Legislature took our language and used it for the legislation. It was awesome and such a huge victory.” Fusco wanted to pursue public interest law, but like many Emory students, confronted the tough decision of private versus public law when he graduated. He chose private practice. “I enjoy commercial and real estate law, but I am always looking for ways to provide direct impact to those less fortunate who can not afford private law firms,” Fusco said. Serving on the Barton Clinic board and working with the Kids in Need of Dreams Truancy Intervention Project helps feed that desire. “I help represent kids who are brought before the juvenile court on truancy charges,” he said. “I take on two to three pro bono cases a year with each case involving two to three hearings.” In addition to his pro bono cases, Fusco mentors ­students at Emory Law and at his firm. “I had such a fantastic experience at Emory,” he said. “I love pointing that out to people. I’ve been out of school for seven years. My work with the Barton Clinic has had more of an impact on me than anything else I learned in the classroom. I enjoy working with students and helping them develop different ideas or opening them up to new ones.”

Tax Reform and the Obama Administration by Dorothy A. Brown

W

The largest political problem I foresee for Presidentelect Obama’s tax proposals concerns the numerous refundable tax credits.

e elected the first African-American president of the United States with tax policy a major campaign theme. For me, it doesn’t get any better than this! The Bush tax cuts expire in 2010. Tax reform is in the air. During the campaign, the guiding principle behind then-Sen. Obama’s tax proposals for individuals was a belief in the importance of the progressive rate structure. A core component of a progressive rate structure is that higher income individuals pay taxes at a rate higher than lower income individuals. Put another way, as income grows, so does the applicable tax rate. The Obama Tax Plan, therefore, will keep taxes low for families earning less than $250,000 and individuals earning less than $200,000. The plan has a number of proposals for the working poor, including expanding the earned income tax credit and creating a refundable credit for homeowners who do not itemize and cannot take the mortgage interest deduction. While conventional wisdom suggests all homeowners who pay mortgage interest itemize their deductions and receive the tax benefits, in reality only 54 percent realize benefits from the mortgage interest deduction. The higher your income the more likely you are to receive tax benefits from homeownership. For example, only 2 percent of homeowners who earn less than $15,000 receive tax benefits from their mortgage interest payments while about a third of those earning between

Four Things To Watch under the Obama Tax Plan 1. T  he Bush tax cuts will be continued for families earning less than $250,000 and individuals earning less than $200,000. For families and individuals earning more, their tax rates will increase — probably equal to those under President Clinton — 36 percent and 39.6 percent. 2. Preferential rates for capital gains and qualified dividends will be kept at the same rate, generally 15 percent, for families under $250,000 and individuals under $200,000. The proposed increase to 20 percent will be for families or individuals earning more than $250,000 or $200,000 respectively. 3. I don’t anticipate any major overhaul of the alternative minimum tax. I expect the AMT patch to continue. A serious AMT overhaul would be too costly. 4. The estate tax under the Obama plan would exempt up to $3.5 million and any nonexempt amounts would be taxed on a ­progressive rate schedule with a top rate of 45 percent.

$30,000 – $40,000 receive such benefits. Ninety percent of homeowners earning at least $75,000 receive tax benefits from their mortgage interest payments while 97 percent of homeowners earning more than $1 million receive benefits. The Obama plan will enable those homeowners not receiving tax benefits from their mortgage interest payments to begin receiving such benefits. The largest political problem I foresee for President-elect Obama’s tax proposals concerns the numerous refundable tax credits. In the past, Republicans have analogized Earned Income Tax Credit (eitc) payments to welfare. The eitc is a refundable tax credit available to low-income wage earners. In a November 20 Wall Street Journal op-ed piece he co-wrote, Newt Gingrich stated “refundable income tax credits will not reduce tax liability but instead result in new checks from the federal government for the targeted social purposes. That’s not a tax cut. It’s welfare.” Substantively those who analogize the eitc to welfare fundamentally misunderstand the eitc. When enacted and signed into law by former Republican President Ford in 1975 as a temporary measure, the eitc was designed to encourage those on welfare to move into the paid labor market. Welfare benefits are tax free. Without the eitc, it was likely some full-time workers would take home less money after taxes than they could if they didn’t work and remained on welfare. To eliminate that disincentive to work, the eitc was created to offset federal income and Social Security taxes. To brand hard-working Americans as welfare recipients is factually wrong and morally reprehensible — but the strategy may work unless the Obama administration makes its case for why low-income, hard-working taxpayers are entitled to the tax benefits that the law allows and to new tax credits so that they may benefit from the tax laws in the same way their middle-income counterparts benefit. Dorothy A. Brown is professor of law at Emory where she specializes in federal tax law and critical race theory.

Can you imagine defending

human rights at

Guantanamo?

Living in a tent near the U.S. detention camps at Guantanamo Bay, third-year law student Carlissa Carson 08L gained the experience of a lifetime. Through Emory’s International Humanitarian Law Clinic, she helped represent detainee Salim Hamdan in a December 2007 hearing. Hamdan was accused of serving as Osama bin Laden’s driver and bodyguard. Carson drafted and revised motions, helped devise trial strategy, and used her security clearance as a military intelligence officer to review Federal Bureau of Investigation documents. She now plans a career in international law. Your investment will help prepare students for leadership, service, and excellence in legal practice.
