Dear KU Law Alum, On July 17, after more than five months, I finally relinquished my title as “Dean Designate” and became dean at KU Law. The University archivists tell us I am the fourteenth and first woman dean of the Law School. Certainly I am among the most fortunate, having joined the Law School at such an exciting time in its history. I was pleased to attend the spring hooding ceremony as the members of the Class of 2006 said good-bye to their student days. They were quite an impressive group. Their student achievements included top performances in interschool moot court competitions, a wide array of pro bono activities, and national recognition as student leaders. Thirteen of them had accepted judicial clerkships prior to graduation. Others had accepted jobs with top quality public and private employers in cities such as Dallas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Omaha, Phoenix, Seattle, Tulsa and Washington, D.C., as well as closer to home in Kansas and Missouri. The first few weeks of my deanship were busy ones. We were fortunate to persuade Professor David Gottlieb to take on a newly created role as Associate Dean for Clinical Programs. His responsibilities will include the first-year Lawyering program as well as our externship and clinical programs. We look forward to his leadership to make these already strong programs even better. We are joined by Professor Radha Pathak who visits us from Whittier Law School. She is teaching courses in civil procedure and evidence. We welcomed a new assistant director of admissions, Jacqlene Nance, a recent graduate of the University of North Carolina Law School, where she served as president of the Student Bar Association. Her task is to expand the number of schools and geographic reach of our student recruitment activities. Kevin Kelly, class of 1989, joins us in a newly created role as director of outreach activities. Shortly before my arrival, the law school bid a fond farewell to Karla Williams, our budget director. We were delighted to welcome Cheryl Saladin as she takes on that role. I hope you will soon have an opportunity to meet Barbara (Barb) Menke, my new administrative assistant, who works hard to keep me organized and on task. On August 14, I officially welcomed my first class at KU Law, the 160 members of the Class of 2009. They hail from sixteen states and three foreign countries; seventy-two percent of them are Kansas residents. Twenty have other graduate degrees. Their personal essays reveal that they have ridden camels in Timbuktu, slept in huts on the Botswana plains, and battled storms with Mozambican fisherman in the Indian Ocean. They have run marathons here and abroad, competed in Olympic team trials, and performed at the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall. They have written two copyrighted full length works of original music and three feature length original screenplays. In their number are students fluent in Bosnian, French, German, Spanish, Hindi, Gujarati, Swahili, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Korean, and Farsi. And, they have already exemplified the highest ideals of our shared profession – service, courage, and integrity – as Peace Corps volunteers, national and international relief workers, and in military service. We expect great things from them. The academic year was off to a great start when, on the first day of classes, Professor Bill Westerbeke received a Kemper Award for excellence in teaching and student advising. Professor John Head has received this year’s Provost’s Award for Excellence in International Education. Former dean Steve McAllister was selected as one of four faculty liaisons to the Dole Institute and coordinated a series of jointly sponsored events to commemorate Constitution Day. Professors Chris Drahozal and Steve Ware hosted the Midwestern Law and Economics Association on October 20 and 21. The annual Tribal Law and Government Conference, led by Professor Stacy Leeds, was held on October 27 and 28. And, on November 10, the law school welcomed scholars and policymakers from across the state and the country to the Kansas Law Review symposium, The Massachusetts Plan and the Future of Universal Coverage. In the fall semester, we hosted seventy-eight employers during the on-campus interview program. We would be happy to add your firm to that number in the spring or next year. I am excited and honored to be the dean and a member of the faculty at KU Law. I look forward to meeting many of you during my travels around the country. If you are in Lawrence, I invite you to come visit me at Green Hall. Your teachers and I will be delighted to welcome you home.

One of the many things that attracted Gail Agrawal to the KU School of Law was a high level of commitment shown by law alumni as well as by administrators, something she believes “will be essential if KU Law is to have a strong future.” Gail B. Agrawal, formerly a law professor and interim dean at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, is the 14th dean in the school’s history and its first female dean. Agrawal succeeds Michael J. Davis, interim dean in 2005-2006. “KU is a public law school that takes its public mission seriously – to provide a first-rate legal education that is accessible and affordable to its students. This is a mission I embrace,” Agrawal says. “KU Law has a great faculty committed to excellence in classroom teaching with an ambitious scholarly agenda as well. It values its role in the larger academy, as well as its role as a professional school with a deep and continuing obligation to the practicing bar and bench. I share those values and that vision.” Agrawal says she plans to spend much of the first part of this academic year asking questions and learning from the faculty, the current students, and the alumni about their views on what KU Law is doing

Dean Gail Agrawal shared some of her thoughts abo of KU Women in Law, Sarah Phillips, 2L from Overl and secretary.

Following law school, she served as a law clerk to Senior Judge John Minor Wisdom on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and as a law clerk to former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Agrawal practiced health law as a member of the New Orleans law firm of Monroe and Lemann, and later spent three years in the law department of Aetna Inc., where she provided counsel to Aetna’s health businesses. She has taught as an adjunct professor at Tulane Law School and Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and served as the W. M.

The National Journal has described her as “an experienced Washington hand that has forged a career at the intersection of politics and policy.” Bair is a native of Independence, Kansas, who earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy in 1975 and her law degree from KU in 1978.

In addition, the FDIC is playing a leading role in issues of identity theft, international capital standards, anti-money laundering, financial education and regulatory burden reduction.” With these and other challenges facing the FDIC, Bair has her work cut out for her. But, KU law professor Fred Lovitch, who has been teaching at KU since 1972, says the 1978 Law School alum is more than equal to the task.

Bair was President George W. Bush’s first pick to serve as the Treasury Department’s Assistant Secretary for Financial Institutions in his new administration. During her tenure at Treasury, she was responsible for a range of policies affecting financial institutions related to safety and soundness, consumer protection and national security.

GREEN HALL NEWS KU law’s relationship with the United Arab Emirates University (UAE) College of Law began in March 2005 when the KU Law faculty hosted a delegation of deans and distinguished faculty from three Arab countries – Qatar, Oman and the UAE. The delegates spent three days at KU visiting classes, listening to special lectures, and attending social events. Among the most animated of the eleven Arab delegates was Dr. Jassim Al-Shamsi, Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Shari’a and Law at the UAE University. Al-Shamsi was about to become Dean of the College, and was intent on lifting its visibility and prestige. He arrived already impressed by Professor Bhala’s encyclopedic knowledge of world trade generally and the World Trade Organization (WTO) specifically. The UAE had been admitted to the WTO the previous year, and there were no academic programs on the Arabian Peninsula that prepared Arab students for legal trade worked on the international stage. He was also intrigued by Professor Mike Davis’s special lecture on American legal education and the ABA’s accreditation standards and processes. That fall, now-Dean Shamsi invited Bhala and Davis to the UAE to help the College create a seminal Masters degree program in International Trade. Both invitees were eager to help, but both had commitments that delayed the visit until April 28-May3, 2006. It was also agreed that Bhala would give lectures on International Trade to the Dubai and Abu Dhabi Chambers of Commerce, and that Davis would speak to Law College faculty and students on “American Regulation of Lawyers and Law School in the Global Economy.”

in an odd act of trans-Atlantic loyalty or solidarity, the United States has chained its negotiating position and stature in the WTO to reform of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). That reform has not happened. The ballyhooed July 2004 decoupling by the EU of “Blue Box” farm subsidies from output is not serious progress. A product-by-product review suggests linkage lingers. Reform is inevitable, because the EU budget cannot withstand extension of full CAP benefits to the 10 new member countries. In the meantime, the Americans should have, and still should,

came from the Group of 10 (G-10), Group of 20 (G-20) countries, and the African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) region. Trade negotiators have held many meetings since the Hong Kong Ministerial Conference, and their teams have run computer simulations of various hypothetical Doha Round trade barrier cuts. But, they have not reached a breakthrough. To the contrary, the July 2006 meetings led to collapse, or at least suspension. It is time for a major, even radical, shift in American trade negotiating strategy if the United States cares to regain the mantle of leadership in multilateral trade liberalization. That will mean cutting out the EU – for now. Imagine, then, the following strategy. The United States deals directly with Brazil, China, and India, plus the Cairns Group, and eschews the EU. The talks produce an agreement on each of five pillars on which agricultural trade liberalization must rest: Market Access: The negotiating partners agree to cut their applied tariff rates, Professor Bhala in Muscat, Oman, with a colleague from the College of Shari’a and Law.

States, cast in the role of “bad guy.” Suppose the EU accepts this role of spoiler? The United States and its partners must be resolute in their willingness to make the agricultural trade liberalization deal a plurilateral one – for the benefit of only the WTO members that accept its terms, just like the Government Procurement Agreement from the 1986-94 Uruguay Round. While sub-optimal, this outcome at least would liberalize trade among the agreeing members, and preclude EU exports from entering those members’ markets boosted by unreformed CAP benefits. Admittedly, the suggested strategy is not flawless – no trade negotiation strategy ever is. One concern is some developing and least developed countries (especially in the ACP) rely heavily on EU consumers to buy their agricultural output. For them, a negotiation without one of their largest export markets represented at the table

Robert Zischg, the Chicago Consul General for Austria and a leading diplomat from a country that has strongly opposed the admission of Turkey into the European Union, was the inaugural speaker at the KU School of Law’s first Diplomat’s Forum in March 2006. The KU Law School — the only American law school with formal cooperation and exchange programs with schools in Vienna, Austria and Istanbul, Turkey — established the Diplomat’s Forum to give students more global perspectives, said Raj Bhala, Raymond F. Rice Distinguished Professor Law. “Inviting diplomats who are posted in the U.S. will give us a view of ourselves through foreign eyes. It will help students understand how we are perceived overseas,” Bhala said. “It also gives us the opportunity to share our views with the diplomats to relay back to their country.” Zischg, 42, was named to head Austria’s Chicago Consulate General in April 2005 and has worked in his country’s foreign affairs ministry since 1990. Zischg’s speech, “Friends or Barbarians at the Gate?” gave his country’s perspective on whether Turkey should be admitted into the European Union. Zischg’s speech took place around the same time that negotiations were authorized to consider the admission of Turkey as the first Muslim-majority nation in the 25-member European Union. Turkey has faced mounting public opposition in EU countries, which was exacerbated by violent reaction in the Muslim countries to published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Danish newspapers. Zischg ably traced the history of Turkey’s application for EU membership, and laid out clearly the reasons why Austria – at present – is reluctant to see Turkey admitted. Austria held the revolving position of the presidency of the European Union for the first six months of this year. Bhala says the Diplomat’s Forum is being planned as an annual event, with the focus on attracting an engaging speaker to cover a provocative topic.

Westerbeke Honored for Teaching Excellence A “Surprise Patrol� led by Chancellor Robert Hemenway visited William Westerbeke during his Torts II class at the start of the fall semester to present a $5000 Kemper Award recognizing his excellence in teaching and advising. The W. T. Kemper Fellowships for Teaching Excellence recognizes outstanding teachers and advisers at KU as determined by a seven-member selection committee. Now in their 11th year, the awards have been supported by a $650,000 in gifts from the William T. Kemper Foundation and matching funds from the KU Endowment Association. Westerbeke has taught at KU Law for over 32 years. His teaching and research emphasis has been on tort law, including the law of product liability. A dedicated teacher, known for his accessibility to students, his teaching methods include the use of a smile and a sense of humor rather than intimidation.

Head Wins Provost’s Award for Commitment to International Education John Head received the 2006 Provost’s Award for Leadership in International Education at KU’s annual facultystaff convocation September 7. The award recognizes faculty on the Lawrence campus who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in strengthening KU’s international dimension in such areas as curriculum development, study abroad programs, relationships with international partner institutions and collaboration with international colleagues in significant research and publications. Professor Head joined the KU Law faculty in 1990. He has been closely involved with student exchange programs in Turkey, Ireland and England. Head was the first law faculty member to mentor a Junior Faculty development Program fellow. Head has helped with several legal education projects in Indonesia, resulting in publication of two books used by law schools throughout the country.

Glicksman Receives 2006 Moreau Award Students and faculty gathered in the commons on the last day of classes, May 4th for the annual presentation of the Moreau award to be followed by the traditional Walk to Old Green. The Moreau Award honors Dean Frederick J. Moreau who served as dean from 1937 through 1957. It is presented to a faculty member “who, in the eyes of the students, has been particularly helpful in advising and counseling with students.”

SBA President, Sam MacRoberts presented

the award to Rob Glicksman. Professor Glicksman said he was both surprised and highly gratified and hoped the award was a sign that he was having the same kind of positive influence on students that his own college and law school professors had on him. “My decision to embark upon a teaching career was based largely on my desire to provide a solid educational experience for students and to spark their creativity”
