(Very) Risky Business He may wear bow ties and tweed, but don’t mistake that for staid. Robert P. Smith (J.D. ’65) craves risk in everything from his choice of profession to his choice of sport. Within 24 hours in 1998, he lost $15 million in the ruins of the Russian economy. All in a day’s work. More recently, he could be found racing at 50 miles an hour over steep descents on a motorized dune buggy in the Namibia desert. Not bad for a 68-year old. 4 | The Record | Fall 2008
For more than 30 years, Smith has made a living buying and selling the sovereign debts of governments in emerging market countries. He generally picks the most downtrodden economies: countries wracked by war, revolution, inflation, corruption and greed. “Hollywood couldn’t begin to invent some of the characters I have thrown my lot in with. It’s been a unique education in human nature and the nature of the global economy we live in today,” Smith writes in his new book, Riches Among the Ruins: Adventures in the Dark Corners of the Global Economy, slated to come out in April 2009. The founder in 1978 of his own investment boutique, Boston-based Turan Corporation, Smith is widely credited in the international financial community as one of a handful of individuals who contributed significantly to the creation of the foreign emerging debt market. His mechanism has been to buy high-risk government debt in “thirdtier” countries such as Turkey, El Salvador,
Hollywood couldn’t begin to invent some of the characters I have thrown my lot in with. It’s been a unique education in human nature and the nature of the global economy we live in today.
Nigeria and, more recently, Iraq. Smith then either holds it or resells it at a mark up to those who want to assume the risk that those debts will someday be paid. As a result, countries gain some liquidity, and some buy back their own debt or establish programs allowing foreign investors to turn the debt into equity investments. In this way, such nations stimulate the economy and create more jobs. If the country’s fortunes take a bad turn, though, the holder can lose all of his
investment –– as Smith himself experienced when the Russian government defaulted on its foreign debt obligations in 1998. The value of Russian paper in Smith’s own accounts plummeted instantaneously by nearly 75 percent. Made for the game, he didn’t panic, instead buying even more “paper” and riding it out until he had recouped his losses in 2003. Smith developed a lust for the foreign as a stamp collector at a young age. During the summers while at BU Law, he worked as a currency trader in Turkey, with Banca Commerciale Italiana and as an intern in Antwerp with Exxon. He furthered his interest by taking an elective in international transactions with Verne Vance. “Verne was very generous with his Washington contacts,” says a grateful Smith, who went to work for the Agency for International Development, then part of the U.S. Department of State, serving in the economic section in Vietnam, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador and Brazil.

Congresswoman Niki Tsongas Delivers 2008 Commencement Speech
In 1973, Smith became a banking representative with the Brazil office of Deltec Banking Corp., an investment bank specializing in Latin America. He returned to Boston in 1975, taking a partnership in the law firm of his father, David Saul Smith (LL.B. ’27). By combining the firm’s specialty in commercial debt collection with his own background in international development –– and drawing on his contacts in Turkey –– he created Turan, which became the first company to buy defaulted debt and invest it in that country in 1980.
The value of Russian paper in Smith’s own accounts plummeted instantaneously by nearly 75 percent. Made for the game, he didn’t panic, instead buying even more “paper” and riding it out until he had recouped his losses.
More than his accomplishments in the foreign investment world, Smith is especially proud of two of his philanthropic endeavors: the Robert P. Smith Art Center and Theater at the Roxbury Latin School, and the student union at Bowdoin College, named after his late father (Class of ’23). His interest in education has also led him to follow BU Law closely. Indeed, BU Law is grateful for Smiths’establishment of the David Saul Smith Award which provides $20,000 each year to support a faculty member’s research. The award is named in honor of Smith’s father. “BU Law has always been an excellent school, and now it has many courses in international law, not to mention a tremendously diverse student body,” Smith says. n

Today, women can have it all — a supportive partner, a healthy family and an illustrious career. Congresswoman Niki Tsongas (’88) is a striking example of the modern day woman, able to balance a full personal life with a career marked by firsts. Yet, as an educated female in the 1970s, Tsongas’ path to success was not pre-paved. When Tsongas embarked on her education at BU Law, the doors were only halfway open to women seeking law degrees. In her speech for the BU Law Commencement, held on May 18, 2008, Tsongas used her own experiences to reflect on the shifting dynamic for professional women, emphasizing the importance of making change. While a fateful summer spent typing case studies fed Tsongas’ desire to attend law school, BU Law provided her the opportunity. Luckily for Tsongas, Assistant Dean of Admissions Earnest Haddad, had recently begun seeking out female admittances to bolster BU Law’s student body. In her speech, Tsongas recalled, “At the time, I did not know any women lawyers, but change was in the air. And, as a student at an all-female college, I knew classmates who planned to go to law school regardless of the challenges they might face in gaining admission.” While one-fourth of BU Law’s graduating class was female when Tsongas was admitted, more than half of today’s matriculating class is comprised of women. Tsongas reflected, “As we today take for granted women’s participation in law schools across the country, BU Law deserves great credit for opening the door to women so many years ago; and I am grateful for having been able to walk through that door, and the many others that opened as a result of the education I received here.” Tsongas’ path to law school matriculation spanned 16 years, through the growth of her family, her husband’s political triumphs in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate and eventually her husband’s illness. After earning her degree, Tsongas went on to establish the first all-female law firm in Lowell, MA and also to become the dean of External Affairs for Middlesex Community College, the largest community college in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Currently, Tsongas is serving her first term in the United States House of Representatives for the Fifth Congressional District of Massachusetts — she is the first female from Massachusetts to be elected to Congress in 25 years. Reflecting on her new role in Congress, Tsongas expressed awe at her newfound power and ability to affect the nation as a whole. She urged graduates to be aware of their influence and to use it to its fullest potential. “As you leave this evening, I hope you will always remember that the power that resides in your degree can be engaged as a catalyst for change — in your lives, but also in the lives of others — of a community, of a nation and of our world. You are the future change makers. May you exercise this great power with restraint, decency and a commitment to the common good,” concluded Tsongas.
OutLaw Celebrates 30 Years
L-R: Professor Robert Volk, OutLaw's Faculty Advisor ('78); Michael Adams ('09); Christopher Valente ('09); Congressman Barney Frank; Andrew Novak ('09); Daniel Levin ('09); Arielle Kristan ('09). The students represent OutLaw's '07/'08 Executive Board. Congressman Frank was visiting BU Law to give an address on financial market regulation.
According to Frank Mockler (‘81), it was as though the Boston legal community saw a switch flipped in 1978. As the U.S. Supreme Court reached its landmark decision validating the constitutionality of affirmative action programs in the University of California v. Bakke, BU Law formed its own first gay group. “I was present at the dawn of a new era of tolerance,” said Mockler. “For whatever reason, there were a number of gay and lesbian students in my class, a critical mass, and it made it possible to organize a group. There were a few 2Ls and maybe a 3L or two, but most of the initial group were 1Ls like myself,” Mockler
recalled. “We came up with the name BUGALLA — Boston University Gay and Lesbian Legal Association.”
working alumni in the area, worked to make its presence known and to assist the legal community in areas where it could.
BUGALLA’s formation coincided with the creation of COGLLI (the Committee on Gay & Lesbian Legal Issues) at Harvard Law and an already present gay and lesbian group formed by BU undergraduates, Mockler and his classmates did not seek to create any more waves by making BUGALLA an official school group. “We weren’t a secret, but we certainly managed to stay under the radar. There were no elected officials and while our meetings were casual and irregular, it served as an effective support group for us,” stated Mockler.
BU Law alumnus John Ward (’76), was making his own mark on the Boston gay legal community defending men arrested in what were deemed “homosexually active” areas. He went on to found GLAD (Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders) and joined several members of COGLLI to form the Massachusetts Lesbian and Gay Bar Association (MLGBA) which is still active today. When Mockler and his co-founders brought Ward to speak at one of BUGALLA’s early meetings, they were denied the right to a meeting space because they weren’t an administratively-recognized group. Nevertheless, they found a place to meet without any serious repercussions, and the group continued to grow as much of the outside world struggled to keep up.
Despite the changing scene in the Boston legal community, the majority of the general population was still of the mindset that to be “out” was tantamount to being unemployed. BUGALLA, along with several

Today, BUGALLA has morphed into OutLaw, and BU Law’s dedication to ensuring safety and acceptance for all students is clear. “We have a very supportive administration,” said Chris Valente, co-chair of OutLaw. “There’s never really been a question about whether we’re accepted on campus.” Just as Mockler observed 30 years before, Valente is quick to note that Boston’s environment of acceptance may not be the norm across the country. “We’re in very much of a comfort zone here in Boston, but that doesn’t mean that there are not issues facing LGBT people here in Massachusetts and around the United States,” said Valente.
We have a very supportive administration. There’s never really been a question about whether we’re accepted on campus.
“What OutLaw tries to do is focus on how we can be instruments of change. We try to better our community, whether it’s through the panels that we host or the volunteer work that I know many of our members do and by going out there and being lawyers who are involved in the community,” said Valente. “This group has always been focused on how we can contribute positively to the things that make a difference to us as a community.” “OutLaw and groups like it have made the legal profession aware that it not only needs to tolerate the LGBT community, but it should embrace those organizations and their causes,” said Mockler. “It is not so long ago that there were no LGBT anti-discrimination policies. That has all changed, largely as a result of the presence and hard work of organizations such as this.” n

J. Renn Olenn (’72) Cracks Seven-Year Murder Case As a litigator specializing in swimming pool, aquatic and scuba injury lawsuits, J. Renn Olenn (’72) never expected to find himself in Providence Superior Court accusing a husband of killing his wife. But in February 2006, after seven years of meticulous investigation, he confidently told a jury hearing his civil court case that the scuba diving death of Shelley Tyre had “every element of murder.” Olenn began researching the case to determine the cause of the inexplicable death of Tyre, who previously had made over 350 scuba dives. She died on an expedition with her husband, David Swain, in the British Virgin Islands on the Isle of Tortola. After a year of investigation and Olenn’s visit to the site of Tyre’s death, the attorney realized the truth: the death had not been an accident — she had been attacked and killed by her husband in the water’s depths. Olenn concluded that Tyre’s move from her headmistress job at Thayer Academy in Braintree, MA to a lower-paying position at Rocky Hill School in Warwick, RI had prompted Swain, who owned a financially failing dive shop, to murder his wife for her life insurance. Olenn backed his story with the evidence he found at the dive scene: a mask broken by force, a flipper lodged toe-first into the sand as if in a struggle, and the backing of dozens of expert witnesses who confirmed that the death could not have been an accident. The civil jury agreed, awarding the Tyre family $3.5 million, and Swain now faces criminal charges after being arrested on a murder warrant from Tortola. Olenn is a founding partner of the Rhode Island firm Olenn & Penza LLP. He and his partner Joseph Penza (’72) dreamed of a partnership during their years at BU Law, where they became friends after being seated together in many of their classes because of the alphabetical order of their last names.

health law programs will continue to lead the health law field, as we have for the past 50 years. The law school’s collaboration with the Schools of Public Health, Medicine and Management will continue to thrive, as will innovative new programs and collaborations. Health law is increasing in importance daily to both our economy and to society at large, as it consumes ever larger percentages of our GDP. BU Law will be there all the way to identify the trends, analyze their legal implications and come up with creative ways to “make things better” for us all. n
The Rules of the Race The successful career of Peter McCausland (’74), founder and CEO of Airgas, a $4 billion company, is inextricably linked to the sea. In 1972, after Labor Day, when an ocean storm closed Nantucket’s port, he had time to reflect on the position offered to him as first-mate on a 140-foot luxury yacht. The privately owned yacht, which spent the winter in the Caribbean, the spring in the Mediterranean and the summer in New England, was unable to dock. An avid sailor, McCausland had dropped out of an East Coast law school, and that summer, undecided about his future, worked on the island, sailed on a homemade catamaran in
his spare time and met the woman he would eventually marry. Instead of accepting the position, he decided to rekindle his dream of a law career. He moved to Boston, applied to BU Law and to Harvard and was wait-listed at both. He was elated when a last-minute spot opened up in the second-year class at BU. The rest, as they say, is history. “The professors at BU were outstanding,” he said. “I especially liked my classes in constitutional law, civil procedure and civil liberties. My education at BU Law has certainly helped my business career, but it has also helped me with my volunteer work
for nonprofits. I really enjoyed practicing law, and I am very proud of the law firm that I founded; however, I am glad that I have had an opportunity to build and run a business.” After graduating cum laude (21st in his class of 325 students), he went to work for a 40-person firm in Philadelphia where he was placed in the litigation department after one year. He left the law firm to become general counsel of Messer Greisheim, an industrial gas company. Five years later, he founded McCausland and Keen, and also in 1982, established Airgas with a single acquisition in Connecticut. Today, Airgas has sales approaching $5 billion and 15,000 Fall 2008 | The Record | 11

employees in 1,200 locations, including a few locations in Canada, Russia, Mexico and the United Arab Emirates. Airgas’ stock has been touted by Jim Cramer of CNBC’s “Mad Money” as a “remarkable performer,” and McCausland has been featured in many interviews in financial and industry magazines. He likens his business skills to those needed for competitive sailboat racing, a sport that requires not only athleticism but brain power and the ability to process a host of information simultaneously. A member of the Nantucket Yacht Club, he owns a John Alden-designed, Indian Class, 21-foot flatbottomed sloop. Every Sunday he races on one of the 15 International One-Design (IOD) 33-foot sailboats with a crew of four other fervent racers. The IOD boats were introduced to the United States around 1936 by Cornelius Shields, a yachtsman revered by racers like McCausland, who often repeats Shields’ belief that “sailing is a great metaphor for life” because you have to live with your mistakes all the way around. “Sailing is a fascinating sport,” he said. “It requires discipline. You have to be thinking all the time. A great strategy takes in the 12 | The Record | Fall 2008
competition as well as the conditions... Success in anything requires being mindful of the details and the big picture. Too often people let the little things get them off course.”
I really enjoyed practicing law, and I am very proud of the law firm that I founded; however, I am glad that I have had an opportunity to build and run a business.
At the helm of Airgas, McCausland has never strayed from the company’s chartered course, which is based on a clear strategy of building a national gas-distribution corporation through consolidation: since its inception, Airgas has acquired more than 370 small companies. His foray into the gas-distribution industry began after he was recruited for the position of general counsel for the U.S. operations
of Messer Greisheim. There, he learned the industrial, medical and gas businesses in depth. “I was involved in all acquisitions and financing and many interesting antitrust and credit issues,” he said. When he formed a private practice with his colleague, Gordon Keen, they catered to middle market companies, venture capitalists and private equity firms. McCausland and Keen also represented many of the industrial gas companies that McCausland had come to know while at Messer. During this period, he also formed Airgas, Inc. and developed the strategy for consolidating the fragmented industrial gas distribution market. After an exhaustive due diligence process, McCausland bought his first company, Connecticut Oxygen, for $5.3 million, funded with $1 million in venturecapital money, and $4.3 million in loans. He hired a former colleague to run Connecticut Oxygen’s day-to-day operations, while McCausland continued full-time in his law practice. As his expertise grew, he recognized the industry’s untapped business opportunities.
Eighty-five percent of the industry was operated by small mom-and-pop businesses, and by the 1980s many business owners were readying for retirement. In short, the industry was ripe for a roll-up. McCausland’s operating strategy was simple: hire strong managers at the local level and give them autonomy. By 1986, he had completed 17 acquisitions, and Airgas generated revenues of $35 million from operations in 10 states.
Success in anything requires being mindful of the details and the big picture. Too often people let the little things get them off course.
That same year, Airgas merged with Werco, Inc., a company that owned five manufacturing companies that made cylinders, welding and safety equipment. The combined entity became a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange. Its public offering in 1986 raised $5 million, followed by a secondary offering in 1987 that raised $20 million. The proceeds were used to fund the centerpiece of his aggressive business strategy: acquisitions. In 1987, he left his law practice to become CEO and chairman of Airgas. “We’ve never been back to the public market since to raise equity,” he said proudly. Twenty-six years later, Airgas has become an extremely profitable company, bringing in almost $700 million in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization last year. Under McCausland’s tutelage, Airgas formed regional distribution hubs, closed redundant operations, and divested certain manufacturing facilities and unrelated businesses to improve operating margins. Over the years, he also built and acquired production plants, updated technologies and focused on operational efficiency, as the company grew to its present size. “I didn’t leave the law because I was unhappy,” said McCausland, who still uses his old law firm to represent Airgas. “I left because this was such a great opportunity to use the same skills I’d honed at my law firm and had started to learn at BU Law School. I’ve enjoyed both careers.” n
The Esdaile Alumni Center Welcomes Cornell L. Stinson, Assistant Dean for Development and Alumni Relations Cornell Stinson has been in the development field for more than 15 years and joined Boston University as the assistant dean for Development and Alumni Relations in March of 2008. As assistant dean, Stinson oversees all aspects of the Development and Alumni Relations office for the law school and is primarily charged with implementing a successful fundraising strategy as the law school considers plans for the construction of a new campus. Prior to joining Boston University, Stinson was a member of the Harvard Law School Alumni Center for four years, ultimately being promoted there to deputy director of leadership gifts. At Harvard, he was responsible for the full range of development activities, working with alumni and friends in New York, California and New Jersey to secure leadership level gifts ($250,000 or more). Stinson was also the primary staff for the Harvard Law School regional campaign volunteer committees of New York and the West Coast. Before Harvard, Stinson served as director of development and alumni/ae relations for Northeastern University School of Law (NUSL). As the chief advancement officer for NUSL, he was responsible for all major gift, annual giving and alumni relations activities during NUSL’s $7.5 million campaign within the University’s overall $200 million capital campaign. Stinson spent more than five and a half years as a planned giving officer at Syracuse University and Boston College and started his development career at Cornell University working for the Cornell Tradition Scholarship program. Stinson received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Cornell University in 1986, majoring in government. After receiving his J.D. in 1989 from Case Western Reserve University School of Law, Stinson practiced law for a brief period before moving to a career in development.

Going Against the Grain Charles Pillsbury (’75) At a St. Paul, Minnesota prep school he was known as “the Doone” –– slang for “the guy who’s not afraid to appear foolish.” At Yale, his college roommate Garry Trudeau worked his nickname, his bespectacled visage, and his whimsical, “lefty” personality into one of the most famous comic strip characters of all times, Mike Doonsebury. But all of this has been icing on the cake –– or should we say, frosting on the crescent buns –– for Charlie Pillsbury. As the namesake of Charles Alfred who founded one of the world’s largest grain and flour companies, Pillsbury has possessed a brand name all of his own. For the great-grandson of one of Minnesota’s most impressive industrialists, that name has been a marker not so much for poppin’ fresh dough, but rather for public service. “My great-grand uncle was Minnesota’s third governor, my uncle ran for that office and my father was a New Hampshire senator in the 1970s,” Pillsbury explains matter-of-factly. What galvanized Pillsbury’s own political sentiments, however, was the year he spent after high school in France in the late 1960s, 14 | The Record | Fall 2008
absorbing alternative viewpoints on the meaning of world military engagements in Southeast Asia. Pillsbury came back to the United States a “liberal European” who had almost nothing in common with his old high school friends –– or his Republican family. “It wasn’t a rebellion, and I never stopped loving them, it was just my creative response to what was going on in the world,” he says. Pillsbury
became actively involved in the presidential campaign of Democrat Eugene McCarthy –– while his own right-wing father was running for the Senate. He also became one of the first to engage in shareholder activism, “raising hell” at board meetings about companies’ involvement in weapons manufacturing during the Vietnam War, and even taking Honeywell all the way to the Minnesota Supreme Court to push for disclosure of their records on cluster bomb production.
something new, Pillsbury began volunteering “That’s what got me interested in law,” for Community Mediation, a nonprofit says Pillsbury, who applied to BU Law community-based mediation program in New School in 1972. “I wanted to do what Ralph Nader did –– public interest law.” At Haven.

From Prague and Beyond: Graber Serves as Ambassador to the People Richard Graber (’81) is working in exciting times. Appointed U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic in September 2006, he is at the center of a bilateral relationship between the two countries that will shape some of the greatest change since the Czech Republic’s Velvet Revolution in 1989. Graber, clearly enthusiastic about the economic and political growth the nation has made in the past 19 years, is equally energized about his own time in the country. “You never know what direction your career will ultimately take,” says Graber, who was in his 25th year with Milwaukee law firm, Reinhart, Boerner, Van Deuren sc, when he received a call from the White House inquiring whether he’d be interested in an ambassadorship. As a managing partner at the firm as well as a four-time elected chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, Graber had already achieved a level of success that many only dream of. “The White House call was very much out of the blue,” says Graber. “Shortly after, I received another asking, ‘What would you think about Prague and the Czech Republic?’” 16 | The Record | Fall 2008
The Czech Republic, one of the most stable and prosperous of the post-Communist states, was a destination Graber and his wife Alexandria, an alumnus of BU’s Sargent College, hadn’t previously considered. As the former Czechoslovakia, the country served for many years as a bridge between the East and West. Following a coup in 1948, the Central European nation became a Communist-ruled state until the Velvet Revolution in 1989, which peacefully overthrew the communist government in favor of a democratic one, simultaneously serving as an example of one of the most successful transformations of its time.
Three years later Czechoslovakia would be peacefully dissolved by parliament into two European states, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, with the Czech Republic rising to new economic heights. Graber describes his own ambassadorial appointment as similarly fast-paced. “It was a whirlwind process,” he says of his introduction into the position. After the extensive application process, including fiveweek training sessions with fellow soon-tobe ambassadors, diplomats and government appointees, Graber, his wife and one of his two sons (the eldest attends college at Wake
Forest) arrived in Prague and hit the ground running. While their younger son plays on a Czech soccer team and expands his circle of international friends, Alexandria serves as chairman of the International School Board and lectures on occupational therapy at Prague’s Charles University. And what about the arduous Czech language? Graber and his wife attend class twice a week to help wrestle with the notoriously difficult language. “It’s certainly not easy,” Graber laughs and admits “but I feel it’s important to master it as much as possible while I’m here.” While taking part in an active family life that would rival any in the States, Graber spends his days tackling issues that will likely shape the relations of the Czech Republic and the U.S. for years to come. “My job is to build on the strength of a friendship between the U.S. and the Czech Republic and there’s not one single thing you do; it’s something you have to work on every day.”
Graber works on issues that could signal significant change for the Czech Republic, as well as the U.S. A U.S.-proposed missile defense plan is currently under negotiation that would have the Czech Republic, as well as Poland, host radar facilities; its goal is to protect Europe and the United States against the threat of long-range missiles originating in the Middle East.
My job is to build on the strength of a friendship between the U.S. and the Czech Republic and there’s not a single thing you do; it’s something you have to work on every day.
“It’s a huge issue here,” says Graber. And the issue is a controversial one in the Czech Republic for many reasons. “Part of it is historical. This is a country that has been occupied in the past by Nazis
and Soviets and it’s important to make the distinction that in those cases no one asked permission to be there. The United States is asking permission.” With subsequent topics, ranging from the radar facility’s potential environmental impact to the question of NATO involvement, the decision ultimately lies with the Czech Republic. “We have a responsibility to provide information not only to local mayors and members of Parliament but also to the public at large,” says Graber. Graber’s responsibility to the public extends to what has been a sensitive political issue for the Czech people for many years: visa requirements. Currently, citizens of the Czech Republic need a visa to travel to the U.S., even for a short vacation. American citizens need only a passport to make a similar trip to the Czech Republic. “This is probably the largest irritant in the bilateral relations between our two countries, but we’re making tremendous progress,” Graber says.

Legislation affecting the U.S. Visa Waiver Program may enable the first Czech to visit the U.S., visa free, before the end of 2008. Graber is the first to admit his devotion to public issues stems largely from his own volunteer experiences dating back 20 years. While his wife worked as a volunteer with the Red Cross and local firefighters, Graber served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee and co-chairman of the United Way Tocqueville Society.
something that’s slowly evolving and progressing here.”
In communism you didn’t volunteer. You didn’t give back to the community. It’s something that’s slowly evolving and progressing here.
While there, Graber saw first-hand the rewards that come from the progress such organizations make. “One thing we’ve tried to work on in Prague is the importance of giving back to the community,” explains Graber. “In communism you didn’t volunteer. You didn’t give back to the community. It’s
Watching the evolution of a democracy that is still only 19 years in the making is something that Graber describes as “so much fun” for someone deeply interested in politics and society. Graber often reminds people that “what the Czech’s have been able to accomplish in that period of time is just remarkable: a vibrant economy, low unemployment and outstanding year-toyear growth.”
And while Graber is modest about his own accomplishments, they too are something rather extraordinary. With degrees from Duke and BU Law, his quarter century career at Reinhart, Boerner, Van Deuren and his numerous appointments in the Republican Party of Wisconsin, Graber attributes much of his success to his strong educational bearings. “I received a great foundation and education at BU Law. It enabled me to go straight to a terrific firm in Milwaukee where I worked for 25 years. Many of the things I was able to do there led me to this amazing opportunity as well as others, so who knows what comes next in my life?” n

LaRae-Perez (’02) Champions “Mammogram Bill” in Vermont After Cassandra LaRaePerez (’02), an attorney with one of Vermont’s largest law firms, underwent her first mammogram in August 2007, a personal discovery became a catalyst to improved public policy for women in Vermont. That first and fateful mammogram revealed two things to LaRae-Perez: breast cancer and the value of early detection. Unfortunately, for many insured Vermont women, the value of early detection was being undermined by its hefty price. Each year, 400 to 500 women in Vermont are diagnosed with breast cancer according to the Vermont Department of Health. Women who hadn’t exhausted their insurance deductible for a current year had to pay out-of-pocket for mammograms, which cost $50 to $300 depending on location. Knowing price was discouraging women from securing early detection, LaRae-Perez was determined to “remove the 18 | The Record | Fall 2008
financial barriers that were preventing access to mammograms.” LaRae-Perez set out to cap mammogram costs for insured women, spawning the aptly titled “Mammogram Bill.”
before the end of session. The freshly passed Mammogram Bill called for insurers to cap out-of-pocket fees for mammograms at $25 in Vermont.
Because government relations comprises part of her practice, LaRae-Perez knew just the person to make her ally in her crusade for the Mammogram Bill—Vermont senator John Campbell. “I knew this issue was right up his alley,” she recalls. A friend and attorney at the Vermont Public Interest Group later joined the effort. “They worked on this in October and November, while I had and was recovering from my bilateral mastectomy. It wouldn’t have gotten started without them.”
“Early detection saves lives. If removing financial barriers to mammograms sends one woman with an as yet undetected cancer to get her mammogram earlier than she might have otherwise, this bill might save her life. I think the bill is more than a political statement; I believe it will make a real and practical difference. It may sound cliché, but really, it doesn’t get better than that,” says LaRae-Perez.
While LaRae-Perez underwent radiation therapy at Massachusetts General Hospital during February and March, the bill was completed in the Senate but stalled in the House Committee on Health Care. By midMarch, LaRae-Perez returned to the State House, promoting the bill until it eventually passed on April 30, 2008, a mere three days
Currently LaRae-Perez is an associate at Primmer, Piper, Eggleston & Cramer PC in Montpelier, Vermont. In addition to her work as an attorney, she still promotes breast cancer awareness, and recently walked 60 miles for a fundraiser on behalf of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Students Reach Out:
Pro Bono Efforts Continue in New Orleans Three years after the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina, there is still an immense need for help in New Orleans. With only 50 percent of public schools reopened and a large segment of public housing slated to be demolished in favor of luxury resorts, surrounding neighborhoods still go without street signs, grocery stores, public transportation and in some cases, electricity. Those who have tried to resume their lives remain in desperate situations. While issues in the city have all but disappeared from mainstream media, students at BU Law have not forgotten this ongoing crisis.

Three years after Hurricane Katrina, BU Law students capture the city’s residential conditions.
BU Law students continue to devote their time, energy and skills to help the residents of New Orleans rebuild their lives. In 2007, students began a BU Law chapter of the Student Hurricane Network (SHN), traveling to New Orleans over spring break to provide assistance to survivors. Moved by their experience in the hurricane ravaged city, the students have redoubled their efforts. This year, they returned to New Orleans over spring break to continue helping residents in need. Students also work from Boston in the Matchmakers for Justice program which pairs law students with Gulf Coast Clients. “Our students are living the motto we chose for the Pro Bono Program: ‘Be the change you want to see in the world,’ a Mohandas Gandhi quote. The students are excellent advocates and they are committed to continuing their pro bono work throughout law school and into their professional lives,” said Career 22 | The Record | Fall 2008
Development Office Director Maura Kelly, who accompanied students on both their spring break trips. Dean Maureen O’Rourke hopes to create a permanent fund for a pro bono spring break trip each year.
Our students are excellent advocates and they are committed to continuing their pro bono work throughout law school and into their professional lives.
Alumni are also currently working to create connections between Boston lawyers and Louisiana clients to compensate for the lack of professionals in post-Katrina New Orleans. The New Orleans Lawyer Assistance Project (NOLAP), was cofounded by Community Lawyer for Rhode
Island Legal Services, Steven Fischbach (’83) and retired attorney Thomas Arnold, to provide pro bono assistance from Boston. Student Jessica Sutton (’09) took the opportunity to work at the Public Defenders Office in New Orleans during the 2008 spring break trip. While there, she spent time interviewing individuals before their arraignment to give a voice to those unable to find representation. According to Sutton, many inmates were rounded up into makeshift jails and arrests were made without probable cause in an effort to regain control of a ravaged city. Some of these individuals did not see a lawyer or receive a first appearance hearing for months. On Sutton’s first SHN spring break trip in 2007, she met Reverend Jean-Jacques, the leader of a community church near the Ninth Ward. She is now working to provide legal services to his neighborhood. The services would be tailored to the
needs of the community and offered at Reverend Jean-Jacques congregation after church services, as well as at other community events and centers, she said. The project would bring in attorneys from various fields of law to give “Know Your Rights” presentations and help build clinics to assist individuals in writing letters or complaints to FEMA and other agencies.
One thing I found in New Orleans both years was that residents wanted to know that people have not forgotten about them and the struggles they face every day.
Kristina Petronko (’08), an alumni member of SHN, plans to continue her work in New Orleans. “During both years while we were in New Orleans, one thing I found was that residents wanted to know that people have not forgotten about them and the struggles they face every day,” she said. Besides visiting New Orleans twice to help in the Public Defenders Office, she has worked with the BU FEMA Appeals Project — another effort from Steven Fishbach — which aids FEMA assistance recipients seeking legal help. “I think the consequences of Katrina and Rita were devastating for many Gulf Coast residents and resulted in serious civil rights and human rights violations,” said Petronko. “We as law students and future lawyers have a responsibility to protest these violations, work to remedy the consequences of them, and ensure that the Gulf Coast residents are treated fairly with dignity and compassion.” n
Adrienne Bossi (‘10) finally finds a grocery store after a 4.5 hour search through New Orleans. The food is purchased with money collected by the BU Law students for residents of isolated trailer camps who have no access to these food stores.
Two and a half years later, Marie Tolbert’s yard remains littered with belongings as though she were having a moving sale. There is a stove
in her backyard, near the fence where the family dog, likely sick with Parvo, remains tied up. Every room in her small purple house is piled
f loor to ceiling with the possessions of four generations... Everything is covered in a chalky f ilm you can write your name in.
Marie invited a building inspector to sign off on the electrical work that was completed so she could begin sheet rocking over it.
“He told me everything was wrong and started tearing the walls down right there in front of me,” Marie remembered, her voice rising in
anger. “He said he could f ix it all for me, and he kept coming back
saying he needed more money to keep f ixing things. He said there were termites and tore down a whole wall and left us with a space open to
the outdoors for three weeks. Spiders were crawling in. I realized he wasn’t an inspector at all. He was pretending.”
Why rebuild then? Well, why breathe? While the city is literally
crawling with injustice in every structural facet, the hope of its people and the dream of a strong, vibrant New Orleans remain for most.

Recognizing remarkable members of our community, awards are given in the categories of: “Distinguished Service to the Profession;” “Distinguished Service to the School of Law;” “Distinguished Service to the Community;” and “The Young Lawyer’s Chair.” A separate honor is presented to a Boston University School of Law administrative staff member, the “Gerard H. Cohen Award for Distinguished Service to the School.” Celebrating these accomplished individuals, Boston University School of Law is proud to announce the 2008 recipients of the Silver Shingle and Gerard H. Cohen Awards. Rebecca Galeota (’99), Craig Thompson (’79), Edward Snyder (’65), Kirk Bauer (’78), Charlotte Gliksman, Dean Maureen O’Rourke
Charlotte Gliksman The Gerard H. Cohen Award for Distinguished Service to the School of Law Charlotte Gliksman joined BU Law in 1983 as a senior administrative secretary for faculty services. Her skill and ability quickly led to promotions and additional responsibility, and she has worked with ten associate deans, ensuring that the critical academic affairs of the school are handled smoothly and efficiently. Every member of the faculty and staff knows Gliksman as that special person that every organization must have — the one who knows the answer or knows how to find the answer to every question. Everyone on the academic side of the school knows that she is the glue that holds the academic operations together.
Rebecca Galeota (’99) Young Lawyer’s Chair Rebecca Galeota is a director with Cushman & Wakefield, the world’s largest privately-held commercial real estate firm. Her clients range from Fortune 500 companies to local nonprofits. Real Estate Forum Magazine and the CoStar Group have recognized her as one of Boston’s “Power Brokers.” During her first year in the industry, her peers in the Commercial Brokers’ Association elected her “Rookie of the Year” and in 2004 her colleagues at Cushman & Wakefield voted her the “Most Valuable Player” for the New England region. Galeota is also very involved in the Boston community, sitting on the board of trustees for Boston Latin School and on the board of Dorchester’s Educational Enrichment Program (Project DEEP). She previously sat on the boards of Champions for 24 | The Record | Fall 2008
Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Trust Fund. She continues to be active in the American Cancer Society and particularly in its development of the Hope Lodge, a place for out-of-town cancer patients to stay while receiving medical treatment in Boston.
Kirk Bauer (’78) For Distinguished Service to the Community Kirk Bauer has devoted 38 years of service to Disabled Sports USA—the first 12 years as a volunteer, and the last 26 as its executive director. Bauer knows first-hand what it’s like to face the challenges of disability: as a noncommissioned officer in the U.S. Army in 1969, he lost a leg from a hand grenade during an ambush while serving in the Ninth Combat Infantry Division in Vietnam. He was twice awarded the Bronze Star for heroism, the Army Commendation Medal with Valor Device, and the Purple Heart for injuries sustained in combat. His long list of accomplishments includes the establishment of the first nationwide fitness exercise program for disabled individuals and the introduction of the first nationwide program to work with parents of disabled children to ensure their children’s rights to physical education in the classroom. Bauer’s establishment of the “Wounded Warrior Disabled Sports Project” has helped injured veterans since 2003. Disabled Sports USA has provided sports rehabilitation programs for the severely wounded soldiers and Marines returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with amputations, head injuries, paralysis and blindness. Because of Bauer’s initiative, over 1,600 severely wounded warriors and their family members have been provided sports programs free of charge.
Edward Snyder (’65) For Distinguished Service to the Profession As a highly noted matrimonial practitioner for over 35 years, Ed Snyder has clearly earned the admiration and respect of his colleagues for his professionalism, expertise and contributions to the practice of family law. Snyder has been recognized by his peers in the New Jersey Bar Association with the Saul Tischler Award for lifetime achievement in family law and he has been listed in the “Best Lawyers in America” for over 10 years. Snyder was also elected as a Diplomat of the American College of Family Trial Lawyers, whose membership is limited to only 100 family law trial lawyers throughout the country. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and a Charter Fellow of the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Snyder has written extensively on family law matters and has been published in numerous periodicals, including The Family Advocate, The New Jersey Law Journal, The American Journal of Family Law and The Journal of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Snyder has lectured extensively throughout the country on matrimonial and custody matters for many organizations, and he has been appointed to numerous committees by the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
Craig Thompson (’79) For Distinguished Service to the Profession As a member of the legal department of Home Life Insurance Company in New York City and then New England Life Insurance, Craig Thompson earned Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designations, two of the highest professional designations in the insurance industry. He received Vanguard and Masters status, became a registered representative with New England Securities and was appointed to the President’s Cabinet in recognition of his achievements. Next, he joined Thompson Pension Employee Plans, which specializes in pension administration and design. After first serving as general counsel, he became president in 1990. As employers have eliminated the defined benefit pension plans, the burden has shifted to employees to be knowledgeable about their firm’s plans and to make good investment choices. Thompson considers his role in educating employees to be as important as advising CEOs on the best plans to choose. Recently, Thompson was also elected to the board of the Women’s Project, which seeks to promote opportunities for women in the theater and corporate America in the New York metropolitan area. As a father of three daughters and one son, he knows how important it is for women to be recognized, to receive opportunities and to be given the chance to achieve. Thompson is committed to giving back to the community and to helping make the world a little more hospitable to women. Along with his many other roles, Thompson is a member of the dean’s advisory board at BU Law. n
Professor Outterson Works to Deliver the HPV Vaccine Where It’s Needed Most Cervical cancer kills 270,000 women worldwide each year and affects an innumerable number more, most of whom live in developing areas of the world. With two new vaccines currently on the market promising to prevent the infections, which also top out with the highest price tag in history, it seems unlikely that the world’s poorest women will ever see its benefits. Professor Kevin Outterson, whose previous experience includes related work in the area of AIDS, has dug deeper than most into this topic. “Some of the largest spots where cervical cancer occurs are countries such as India, where there’s a huge population and a very poor system of routine cervical screening,” said Outterson. At $360 per person, both vaccines are not only the most expensive ever offered, but come at nearly four times the annual health budget for an average person in the developing world. “I am a firm believer in pharmaceutical innovation,” Outterson said. “Markets must reward drug companies for outstanding new medicines. But when the people who need them most are too poor to afford them, we have a market failure. Something must be done to improve access while preserving innovation.” Working with Harvard researcher Aaron Kesselheim, Outterson described his proposals in the January 2008 issue of Health Affairs, the leading health policy journal in the United States. Relying on donations from drug companies or voluntary pricing programs has not boosted access enough to satisfy global health needs and solutions offered through the World Trade Organization have proven too cumbersome and bureaucratic. Forcing companies to give the product away for free will only drive them from the market, so Outterson’s efforts to find a compromise which meets both the individual’s and the pharmaceutical companies’ needs continues. “Our insight is to use market forces – specifically, generic competition, to drive prices down to the lowest attainable levels, but to limit this generic competition to the poorer countries of the world,” said Outterson. “Our proposal – the Generic Opportunity License (or GO License) doesn’t interfere at all with the drug companies’ most important markets such as the U.S. or Europe. It only applies to the poorer countries, with strict controls to prevent diversion of generic drugs to developed countries until the patents expire.” “We’re hoping that the companies will understand that this proposal does not hurt them at all, that it’s a tremendous benefit to global health, and that it will be great publicity for them,” said Outterson. “It’s also what the scientists want. They want it to go to the women who are dying of cervical cancer; they want to help prevent a generation of deaths.” Fall 2008 | The Record | 25
Anatomy of a Deal Real-World Transactions Hit the Classroom at BU Law
26 | The Record | Fall 2008
What makes a starting associate into a deal lawyer? For many graduates straight out of law school, it will take months, even years, of on-the-job training before they will truly comprehend the underlying principles of a well-structured business transaction. “Law schools traditionally haven’t provided a basic understanding of how and why deal documents work the way they do,” said Maureen O’Rourke, Dean of BU Law. In order to fill that gap and to prepare its graduates to hit the ground running in the professional world, BU Law has begun offering an innovative deals course: “Deals: The Economic Structure of Transactions & Contracting.” Seeking to infuse the 2L and 3L curriculum with practical, handson legal practice, Professors David Walker and Charles Whitehead coordinated and taught the class’s first session in the Spring 2008 semester. “The idea is not simply to teach negotiation and drafting, but rather to focus on developing in students an understanding of why deals are structured the way they are – for example, how do representations and warranties tie into conditions to closing and indemnification, and what are their purposes? This kind of experience is nationally recognized, among both practitioners and academics, as something that needs to be developed in law school, but very few schools are responding or able to respond to it,” said Whitehead. Today, BU Law is one of only

a handful of law schools in the country to offer such a course. Combining both theoretical and practical skills, the class is designed to uncover the anatomy of a deal by uniting students’ academic work with the real-life experience of visiting practitioners. In addition to analyzing the structure of transactions from a positive and normative perspective, the

course looks at how rising trends in the legal marketplace affect the arrangements that are made. “There are common themes that run through most transactions, whether a venture capital investment, real estate financing, or cross-border acquisition, to name a few. We’ve been teaching our students to think like lawyers for two years,
and now the idea is to spend one class – pulling out the themes that run across transactional structures – in order to get them to start thinking like business people and, more importantly, like good business lawyers,” Walker said. Divided into two parts, the first section of the course introduces students to the tools and concepts needed to understand transaction costs, information economics, risk sharing and incentives, as well as property rights and finance, and then applies them to basic deal structuring. The second half of the class emphasizes real-world transactions, calling for the students to break into teams, with each unit responsible for presenting and analyzing a real-world business deal, ranging from large corporate mergers to small venture capital start-ups. Each team is responsible for reviewing up to 300-400 pages of deal documents and then preparing a 35-page paper that analyzes the purpose of the deal and how it was structured to accomplish that purpose. Following student analysis, the practitioners who worked on the deals then explain to the class what actually occurred, providing students with a real-world perspective against which to measure the “theory” of the Fall 2008 | The Record | 27
transaction. Experienced and successful alumni, such as Michael Fricklas (’84), general counsel of Viacom, made their way into the classroom, offering up practical insights to students. “I think classes like this one get young lawyers up the learning curve more quickly than the usual ‘trial and error’ approach and help them get a useful and comprehensive framework for the subject,” said Fricklas.
Students walk into the class not knowing the difference between a covenant and a contribution clause and they walk out having a much better feel for how deals are structured.
“The ‘Deals’ class is a terrific way to jumpstart learning transactional practice, and is certainly a class I wish I could have taken when I was there,” stated Michael Kendall (’93), partner at Goodwin Procter and a presenter in the class. Alumni Wendell Taylor (’95) and Michael Bain (’93), partners at WilmerHale, added their own knowledge from years in the field. “These types of classes not only provide students with an opportunity to explore the many facets of the transactional practice, but they also give students a basis to be successful if they choose to pursue a transactional practice as a career,” said Taylor. Other practitioners taking part in
the class included Peter McCausland (’74), chairman and CEO of Airgas, Gerald Poch (’71), managing director of Pequot Ventures and Nathaniel Dalton (’91), executive vice president & chief operating officer of Affiliated Managers Group, among others. Both Professors Whitehead and Walker, along with visiting practitioner Taylor, were eager to emphasize that students are not the only ones to benefit from the classroom experience. “Approaching deals from a theoretical background, the students address questions at a level that some practitioners may not have thought about. Practitioners will just say: ‘This is the way deals are done,’” said Walker. “For the practitioner, teaching classes such as this is
an opportunity to meet the next generation while at the same time honing their teaching and practice skills,” added Taylor. Impressed by both the professionalism and tenacity shown by students in the class, Fricklas agreed. “I was blown away by the sophistication of the students and their interest in the subject. I look forward to having them help me figure out some realworld issues in the not-too-distant future,” said Fricklas. The professors are confident that the deals students will have a competitive edge over others entering practice. “Students walk into the class not knowing the difference between a covenant and a contribution clause and they walk out having a much better feel for how deals are structured and why the documents are put together the way they are,” said Whitehead. “This class at BU Law is at the leading edge of a movement,” stated Fricklas. “I’m eager to welcome these students to the club of dealmakers.” n

ANNUAL REPORT OF GIVING FISCAL YEAR 2008
Dear Alumni and Friends, BOSTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW is a worldwide community of over 20,000 prominent legal scholars, teachers, students and alumni dedicated to providing the finest legal education in the nation. Since opening our doors in 1872, BU Law has welcomed qualified men and women, without regard to race, national origin, background or belief. As a result, BU Law is a pioneer with a long list of alumni ‘firsts.’ Our founding principle — that legal education should be open to all qualified applicants, and should emphasize theory, analysis and practical application — is still honored today. The great generosity of the alumni and friends of BU Law provides critical resources that enable the faculty, students and staff to carry out the School’s mission. In 2008’s fiscal year (July 1, 2007 – June 30, 2008), the law school received cash gifts totaling $2,431,316 from 2,565 alumni and friends. A few of these very generous gifts are worthy of special recognition. We would like to acknowledge again the support of our most generous benefactors, Philip Beck (’76) and
Richard Godfrey (’79), both of whom made recent seven-figure commitments to establish the School’s first permanently endowed chairs, the Philip S. Beck Professorship and the Robert B. Kent Professorship, respectively. Our new Annual Report of Giving would not be complete without mentioning their extraordinary generosity as we begin to acknowledge the truly significant gifts and pledges of donors in each fiscal year.
Gerald Poch (’71) made a generous gift of $70,000 to the Maurice Poch Faculty Research Fund that he established in 1997, and George Michaels (’48) contributed $60,000 to the Michaels Faculty Research Fund. The income of both of these permanently endowed funds provides grant funding to one or more faculty members of the School of Law in support of their academic research. Professor Alan Feld is the current Poch Scholar and Professors Michael Meurer, Tamar Frankel and Dean Maureen O’Rourke are the current Michaels Scholars. The School of Law also received a wonderful gift of $50,736 from the Leo Dorfman Charitable Trust in support of the Leo E. Dorfman Loan Fund that provides loans to current law students. Also of note was a gift of $50,000 from the Honorable Thaddeus Buczko (’51) to establish a charitable gift annuity, the principal of which will ultimately support the general purposes of the law school. Gerard Cohen (’62) and
Sherry Cohen (GRS ’60) continued their on-going and generous support in 2008 with a gift of $50,000 to the BU Law Fund. Gerry and his family have long supported BU Law and the BU Law Fund in ways too numerous to list. Four of these special gifts were direct contributions to the law school’s endowment, increasing its market value and the permanent income stream available for the law school’s activities and needs. As of June 30, 2008 the School of Law’s endowment had a market value of nearly $54 million. In the 2008 U.S. News & World Report
40 | Annual Report of Giving | Fall 2008
ranking of 184 law schools, BU Law ranked 21st overall, yet the size of our endowment ranked only 41st. Increasing the relatively small size of our endowment will help BU Law become more financially competitive as a top tier law school. As the endowment pie chart illustrates, more than half of our endowment is restricted to provide scholarships and other financial aid that benefits our students.
Market Value of Endowment by Purpose (As of June 30, 2008)
$4.3 M $0.4 M $5.0 M
Scholarships/Student Support Faculty Support
Academic/Programmatic Support $32.7 M
Unrestricted Endowment Library Endowment
Total Endowment: $53,986,327
As the new assistant dean for development and alumni relations at BU Law, it is my honor to join Executive Director Anthony Barbuto and the staff of this department to set the stage for extraordinary fundraising success. We have already begun to have key conversations with our most supportive alumni about BU Lawâ€™s future and our need for even greater financial support. We will increasingly rely on the advice, involvement and generous financial contributions of our alumni and friends. Thanks to all of you who give extraordinary amounts of your time, energy and finances in support of this institution. Sincerely,
Cornell L. Stinson Assistant Dean, Development and Alumni Relations
Fall 2008 | Annual Report of Giving | 41
Law Fund & Donor Roll Unrestricted contributions to the Law Fund directly enable Dean O’Rourke to address a wide range of immediate and important needs. In FY08, over 42 percent of the overall cash gifts received, or $1,021,910 was given as unrestricted support to the Law Fund. This is the third consecutive year that the Law Fund has exceeded the $1 million mark! Alumni, students and friends support the Law Fund through a variety of ways, including the following:
The 2008 3L Class Gift – The class of 2008 held a successful 3L class gift drive raising $5,279 from class members. With 47 percent of the class contributing, the amount raised this year exceeded the class of 2007’s 3L Class Gift by 17 percent. Section C led the section challenge with a participation rate of 60 percent. Once again, Gerard (’62) and Sherry Cohen (GRS ’60) and Oscar (’59) and Elaine Wasserman matched the 3L class’ giving resulting in over $17,000 raised through this gift effort.
Reunion Class Giving – On October 12-13, 2007, the classes of 1957, 1962, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997 and 2002 returned to campus to celebrate their respective reunions. The weekend kicked off with class specific cocktail parties and the annual Golden Circle Celebration for the 50th reunion class. Saturday provided stimulating alumni panel sessions followed by a gala dinner hosted by Dean O’Rourke held at the Moakley Courthouse. In honor of their reunions, members of these classes contributed over $210,000 in gifts to the School.
2008 Law Firm Challenge – As part of our annual giving program, the Boston University School of Law Law Firm Challenge is designed to inspire alumni at law firms to promote giving to the School at their firms. Firms with five or more alumni are divided into four groups based on the total number of alumni employed. The Challenge acknowledges those firms that have the highest percentage of alumni giving to BU Law during the fiscal year. Their accomplishments are highlighted in this magazine and on BU Law’s Web site. A plaque outside the Career Development Office also showcases their names. By participating in the Challenge, alumni at firms enhance their firm’s profile within the BU Law community and especially among future firm associates — current BU Law students. We salute the generosity of our loyal alumni at law firms.
42 | Annual Report of Giving | Fall 2008
2008 Law Firm Challenge (Firms with Highest Percent Participation) Firms with 36 – 75 alumni:
Firms with 16 – 25 alumni:
Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky & Popeo, PC – 45%
Kirkland & Ellis – 42%
Goodwin Procter, LLP – 30%
Firms with 26 -35 alumni: Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP – 27%
Sidley Austin – 41%
Firms with 5 – 15 alumni: Nutter, McClennan & Fish – 43% Ruberto, Israel & Weiner, PC – 33%
Greenberg Traurig, LLP – 26%
In the donor roll that follows on the next page, you will learn the names of those who have made an outstanding commitment to Boston University School of Law and its mission as a world-class law school. Those donors whose names appear in bold have made unrestricted gifts to the Law Fund. It is with great appreciation that the School of Law recognizes these generous alumni and friends.
