It means that the credentials of our incoming students are better than ever. The incoming 2009 class had a median LSAT score of 164, compared with from the Office of the Dean

161 in 2003. The median GPA was 3.78, compared with 3.42 in 2003. And we have become more selective as a School, admitting only 25 percent of applicants, compared with 31 percent in 2003. Our students come from 125 undergraduate institutions and 34 states, plus Canada, China, and Cyprus.

Dear Alumni and Friends: I am excited to share with you the dramatic changes the Indiana University Maurer School of Law has undergone since July 2003, when the School’s Matching the Promise Campaign began. Your incredible generosity has moved Indiana Law to new heights. The Matching the Promise Campaign raised $92.5 million, including a landmark scholarship gift of $35 million from Michael S. “Mickey” Maurer, JD’67, and his wife, Janie; and a $25 million grant for faculty support from Lilly Endowment, Inc. The campaign, which shattered the original goal of $30 million established in 2003, will result in $1.6 million in annual matching funds from the university. Annual giving has increased 63 percent since 2003, and the amount of the average gift has increased 29 percent. The School now has 119 Partners in Excellence, 31 of whom give at least $10,000 per year. More than 100 alumni and friends have joined The Kimberling Society and made a planned gift to the Law School. And the market value of the School’s endowment has grown 126 percent, to $53.6 million at June 30, 2010. What does this unprecedented support mean for the Maurer School of Law, its faculty, and its students?

The Matching the Promise Campaign raised $92.5 million, including major gifts of $25 million from Lilly Endowment for faculty support and $35 million from Michael and Janie Maurer for scholarships. FACULTY SUPPORT SCHOLARSHIPS OTHER

It means that we have met the goal set forth in our Strategic Plan in 2005: To be in the Top 10 among public law schools. Indiana Law is now ranked 27th overall by U.S. News & World Report, compared with 40th in 2003. We could not have achieved these spectacular results without the generosity of our alumni and friends, who have supported the Law School financially and as volunteers. In the 2009-10 academic year alone, 823 alumni gave their time to the School. Working closely with our outstanding Office of Career and Professional Development, you provided shadowing opportunities, resume review, networking assistance, career coaching and recruiting services.


More than 1,000 alumni attended events outside of Bloomington, and our active Alumni Societies in Chicago and Washington, DC served as models for future societies in other cities. As 2010 draws to a close, we have much to celebrate. Your support and

generosity are making it possible for us to continue to attract top-flight faculty who will prepare our outstanding students to be the most ethical and sophisticated lawyers in the world. Your role in the Matching the Promise Campaign has truly been transformative, and all of us are ending the year on a note of gratitude for the commitment so many have made to our School. All my best, ( DOLLARS IN THOUSANDS )

It means that we have been able to expand our distinguished faculty, who are consulted as experts around the world. In 2010 alone, they published 22 books, casebooks, and treatises; wrote 89 articles, essays, and book chapters; gave 60 lectures at universities in the United States; and delivered 20 lectures 2 + ergo + 2009-2010 dean’s report

at international universities. The Law School’s faculty were quoted in the media 164 times during the past year. We now have 57 full-time faculty and a student/faculty ratio of 9.5 to 1, among the lowest in the Big Ten — and even lower than Harvard’s! It means that scholarship support has grown 400 percent since 2003, from $2 million to $10 million annually. It means that 125 more students receive scholarships every year now than they did when the campaign began.

As the student trustee of Indiana University, third-year law student

Abbey Stemler is often bombarded with publications from every conceivable department, office, and campus in the IU system. When she opened a recent piece from the IU Foundation, she admitted she was “nearly lulled to sleep” by page after page of statistical fundraising data. She kept flipping through the magazine, and found her eye drawn to a particular graph.

“There, where even a first-grader could see, was the impressive truth,” she

said. “There was a huge blue bar representing the total amount the Law School raised that stretched far beyond the red bar of the fundraising goal.”

The Law School concluded its Matching the Promise campaign earlier

this summer, wrapping up the most historic and transformational fundraising effort the School has ever known. At the beginning of the campaign, in July 2003, the fundraising goal for the Law School was set at $30 million.

At the time it seemed a bleak prospect.

“I’ve had the good privilege of serving on our Board of Visitors,” said Bob

Kassing, JD’64, “and I knew the history of giving at the board level had been about 25 percent in any given year or campaign. So if our goal was $30 million, that was about $7.5 million we were going to have to raise just from the board. We figured out a way to set some goals to encourage giving, but even then we were still going to be short.”

Enter the Lilly Endowment. In December 2007, Dean Lauren Robel got

the phone call that changed the momentum of the campaign, and the future of the Law School. The caller was Sara B. Cobb, the Endowment’s vice president for education. She told Robel that the Lilly Endowment was making a $25 million gift to the Law School to use however she saw fit.

At the time, Indiana Law’s faculty were being successfully recruited away

for higher salaries. Robel put an end to that immediately. Bolstered by the

4 + ergo + 2009-2010 dean’s report

$25 million gift from the Lilly Endowment, Robel was able to provide better offers to existing faculty and recruit five exceptional scholars from around the country.

One year later, Michael S. “Mickey” Maurer, JD’67, and his wife, Janie,

stood in an overflowing Moot Court Room to announce a $35 million gift entirely for student scholarships. {+}

Here, in their own words, are some of the students and faculty whose lives have been forever changed thanks to the extraordinary support you’ve given them.

Jillian Rountree, JD/MPA’13 As the fifth child in my family (and the third to go to graduate school), the college budget was used up by the time I finished my undergraduate degree. I knew I wanted to come to law school so that I could work in the public sector and serve my community, but I also knew that that would mean leaving school with a lot of debt and a lower salary. This scholarship was truly a dream come true. When I received the admissions package in the mail, my mom cried she was so excited. And I suddenly knew I could pursue my dreams without the huge burden of debt. Now, I am at Indiana Law, able In today’s fragile economy, the mere thought of affording a legal education

Three honored with Law School’s Distinguished Service Awards

The tremendous success of this campaign is about as big and strong a signal a law school could make that it’s serious about its mission. This is an effort to create a more nationally distinctive, really special place. For Indiana Law to be able to say “Oh by the way, we have this tremendous gift, and we’re going to use it to bring in the best faculty, to devote it to student scholarships, and all these other special uses for it,” that’s a big-time signal. There were certainly people in the halls of my old law school and many other places that were saying, “If only that could be us.” Thank you so much for all this funding has done already and is likely to do in the future. It is truly fantastic. {finis}

Three alumni from the Indiana University Maurer School of Law were honored on October 8 with prestigious Distinguished Service Awards. The awards were established in 1997 to recognize Indiana Law graduates who have distinguished themselves in service to their communities and the IU Maurer School of Law in ways that exceed expectations in the course of their business, professional, or civic duties. This year’s recipients are:

Gregory A. Castanias, JD’90


Gregory A. Castanias, JD’90. Castanias is a partner and head of the federal circuit practice at Jones Day in

Washington, D.C. He has argued three cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and is considered one of the country’s

leading intellectual property attorneys. Castanias has served the Law School in countless ways, from mentoring

current and prospective students to an eight-year tenure on the School’s Alumni Board.


Leroy W. Hofmann, JD’58. Hofmann has been a highly decorated litigator throughout his 51-year law career

in Phoenix. He has held leadership positions with the American Board of Trial Advocates and the Arizona

Association for Justice. He is a dedicated volunteer to the Arizona Lost Boys Center, which assists hundreds of

Sudanese men orphaned by the Sudanese Civil War.


Laurie N. Robinson, JD’98. Robinson is the senior vice president and assistant general counsel of CBS

Corporation. She is the author of several legal-related publications and writes a quarterly column on diversity

in the legal profession for Inside Counsel magazine. She is the founder of Corporate Counsel Women of Color,

a nonprofit organization of more than 2,400 minority women who work primarily for Fortune 1000 and Forbes 2000 legal departments.

carries with it the obligation to give back to the community,” said Lauren Robel, Dean and Val Nolan Professor of Law. Leroy W. Hofmann, JD’58

“Pro bono work and public service are the moral dues we pay to be a part of this profession, and our students know from day one that their law degree will give them the power to provide access to justice for all of our citizens. Our DSA recipients – Greg, Lee, and Laurie – embody the spirit of public service and are an inspiration to all of us.” The recipients were honored at a lunchtime ceremony in the Indiana Memorial Union’s Alumni Hall. The ceremony was part of the Law School’s annual Alumni Summit, which brings together alumni from across the country to conduct

While courses like torts and contract law have been a staple of legal education for decades, the faculty believed that an emphasis on realities of the profession would be a useful addition to enable students to develop clearer career goals and draw a better roadmap on how to get there. This fall, after three iterations of the Legal Professions course, the School has the hard data to suggest the curricular shift is not only better preparing law students, it is improving their overall education experience in the process. Using statistics from the most recent Law School Survey of Student Engagement (LSSSE), two of the professors involved in this effort, Professors Bill

Henderson and Carole Silver, can now say definitively that the Law School’s unique approach to 1L education is making a positive difference. “When we were creating the Legal Professions course, our goals were to forge our students’ professional identities in response to the Carnegie Report, create greater awareness of lawyer competencies, and enable students to make better career choices,” Henderson said. “We then picked out the LSSSE questions that spoke to those goals and reviewed the results. Did we move the needle in a positive direction? The answer is unequivocally yes.”

judgment, communication skills and the ability to build relationships. The more experience students get in these areas, the better they will be at them.” Both Henderson and Silver noted that one course can only do so much. While all 1Ls are required to take the Legal Professions course, the Law School is gradually developing a larger, more robust, curriculum that allows them the opportunity to further develop and hone their skills. For example, a new Project Management course for 2L and 3L students is specifically designed for students to work collaboratively in teams on complex projects.

Santos described how difficult it is to start a transition toward post-capitalist, post-colonial ways of life. He pointed to the growing importance of political innovations coming from the Global South, which are products of both large social mobilizations and of transformative constitutionalism.

Funded by a $4 million grant from Lilly Endowment, the Center for Law, Ethics, and Applied Research in Health Information (CLEAR Health Information) will leverage the resources of Indiana University and the State of Indiana in health sciences, information technology, law, ethics and other disciplines. Fred H. Cate, distinguished professor and C. Ben Dutton Professor of Law, and director of the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research, has been named one of the four co-directors of CLEAR Health Information. “Health information technology has been a major focus of the Obama Administration and of healthcare reform,” he said. Cate noted that as many as 98,000 people die every year because of errors that could have been prevented by reliable access to accurate information, including 40,000 deaths from medication errors alone. “While we are succeeding at building better and better systems, vexing ethical, legal and social issues remain,” Cate added. “CLEAR Health Information will

a message from the alumni board president Dear Friends: Today I’m challenging you to break a rule. Have you ever heard of the Rule of Twelfths? Sailors use it as a rule of thumb to estimate the height of an ocean’s tide at any given time based solely on: 1) the time of day and 2) the heights of the highest (flood) and lowest (ebb) tides. The rule assumes that during the six hours immediately following ebb tide, the water level will rise — and fall — by one twelfth of the tidal height range in the first hour, two twelfths in the second hour, and so on according to the sequence 1:2:3:3:2:1.

Sailing the wave of a cream and crimson tide

It is with great honor and pride that we celebrate our Law School’s tremendous rise on the waves of a brilliant cream-and-crimson-colored flood tide. What a voyage! From her current vantage point on this impressive crest with Dean Lauren Robel at the helm, our Law School and her faculty, students, staff, and alumni now witness the exciting culmination of a $92 million capital campaign — a campaign crowned by the School’s champagne christening as the Indiana University Maurer School of Law. From the awesome heights of this incredible flood tide, it is hard to imagine why our Law School would need to sail any faster or travel any farther. But remember the Rule of Twelfths: for every flood tide there’s an ebb tide, according to the sequence. Let’s break the rule — together. We must keep our Law School on the crest of this mighty flood tide. But we cannot do so without YOUR participation and support. YOU are an integral part of the success our fair School now enjoys — and the most important source of her power in the days to come. I encourage you to mentor a first-year student. Judge moot court. Interview prospective students. Coordinate alumni events. Make a monetary donation. Support our Law School in whatever way you like. And as a dedicated, enthusiastic, united crew, we will stave off the ebb tide and sail our Law School along the crested

Accept my challenge. Break the rule. Your School is waiting...
