Dear Alumni and It is my pleasure to share with you our Giving Book, the first in a series of new books about the people and accomplishments of C|M|LAW. As its name suggests, the Giving Book honors the donors whose generosity moves the school forward and benefits the students, faculty, and programs that keep C|M|LAW at the forefront of legal education. In cooperation with a University-wide effort, this book distinguishes our annual fund giving from endowment support. Gifts to the Annual Fund are expended in the fiscal year received and are typically unrestricted in nature, while endowed funds are invested, and only a percentage is utilized each year. We are grateful for all of the dollars you choose to invest in our community of learning and we want our reporting to be clear and understandable. When I became Dean this past July, I learned of an initiative begun by former Dean Geoffrey Mearns:

The Fund for Excellence seeks to raise $1 million by the end of 2012 for strategic efforts that advance the national profile of C|M|LAW. Gifts to the Fund for Excellence have supported research and scholarship and permitted faculty members to present their work across the country and abroad; underwritten an expanded program of speakers, symposia and conferences at C|M|LAW; created our distinctive C|M|LAW brand; and established and provided ongoing support for our innovative Center for Health Law and Policy, which aligns with Cleveland State University’s focus on urban primary care and health law. Unless

nd Friends, otherwise designated, Annual Fund gifts this year will be directed to completing the Fund for Excellence campaign. I invite you to learn more at and hope you will give generously in support of this effort.

I’m delighted to announce an important addition to the External Development staff: Jennifer Nye has joined C|M|LAW in the newly created position of Director of Advancement. An experienced development professional, Jennifer has worked in the non-profit sector for over eight years, most recently as Director of Regional Development and Campaign Giving at the Weatherhead School of Management.

In my short time as Dean, I’ve been truly impressed with the passion and pride that alumni and members of the community have for Cleveland-Marshall and Cleveland State University. I am grateful to the donors listed in this book who have chosen to make C|M|LAW a philanthropic priority. On behalf of all of us at Cleveland-Marshall, thank you. Best regards,

Dean Craig M. Boise

ANNUAL FUND Co-Chairs Dear Fellow Graduates and Friends of C|M|LAW: As co-chairs of the 2012 C|M|LAW Annual Fund Drive, we thank you for your generosity throughout the past fiscal year. Your support is vital to ensuring that our students continue to receive a rigorous and relevant educational experience at our law school.

Beyond financial support, it is also gratifying to know that our graduates and friends give of their time and talent to advise, mentor, teach and employ our students and graduates. Alumni participation in the mock interview program not only assists the Office of Career Planning by providing helpful critiques of our students’ interviewing skills, it also enhances the quality of our graduates and the reputation of our law school. We know that so many of you coach and judge our Moot Court teams to prepare our students for local, regional and national competitions. There are also many of you who are assisting the law school by serving on advisory groups that offer advice and counsel to the administration and faculty. And, especially in this challenging economic environment, we appreciate those of you who have been able to employ our new graduates, who more than most, are ready to “hit the ground running.” While all of this impacts our students and benefits the law school, your financial support is what will make a sustainable difference – today, tomorrow and in the years ahead.

To make a sustainable difference, we need a broad and deep base of financial support. This is why we have joined together this year to co-chair the Annual Fund. Whether we practice in a large or small private firm, or work for the government, a non-profit or a public company, we all share a passion for Cleveland-Marshall Law School. To those who were donors at the Dean’s Council level—gifts of $1,000 and above—we offer our thanks but would also challenge you to step up to another level of giving. Likewise, all gifts are important, no matter the size, and you can be assured that your gift will be put to good use as we prepare the next generation of lawyers and professionals. Your continued annual support is most appreciated as you enable C|M|LAW to educate students to “Learn Law. Live Justice.” Sincerely,

M. Colette Gibbons ’76

Dear Alumni and Friends:



As President of the C|M|LAW Alumni Association, I am grateful to all of you who supported the law school during this year’s Annual Fund Drive. Our alumni and

friends appreciate that Cleveland-Marshall is a place where lives are transformed and dreams are made possible; their consistent annual giving will ensure that the law school’s reputation and influence continue to flourish.

“I am proud to report that 100% of the Officers and Trustees supported the Annual Fund Drive!”

My heartfelt thanks to my fellow Officers and Board members for their support of the Annual Fund and the C|M|LAW Alumni Association this past year. I am proud to report that 100 percent of the Officers and the Trustees supported the Annual Fund Drive! The Law Alumni Association works closely with the law school to provide our alumni and the greater Cleveland legal community a valuable array of CLE programs and activities— both social and professional—including a New Lawyer Training program. Attendance at our annual recognition luncheon in May regularly tops 1,000 as it draws members of the bench and bar from across northeast Ohio to celebrate our alumni of the year. Please take advantage of these programs and opportunities for networking and professional growth. For more information, please access our website at You will find the current roster of the Association’s Board listed in this publication. We welcome your suggestions about programs and activities that you would find of use as you practice law. And, we would welcome your joining as a member if you have not already.

Thank you for your investment in C|M|LAW and our mission of educating students to “Learn Law. Live Justice.” I hope to see many of you at our events and at the law school throughout the year Sincerely,

Jill S. Patterson ’98

“When I was a young lawyer, I did not have the money to buy books, so I would use the C|M|LAW library. The librarians graciously allowed me to use the books even though I was not a grad of the law school. Today, I appreciate the good experiences my firm has with C|M|LAW interns. On both counts, I am forever grateful to C|M|LAW.” –Margaret Wong

TRIAL COURTROOM In April 2011 C|M|LAW proudly unveiled the Trial Courtroom. Designed to look and function exactly like a Federal Courtroom, the space incorporates cutting-edge technology into a simulation-based learning environment for both law students and legal professionals. The project was met with enthusiasm by alumni and friends of the law school, whose generosity brought the courtroom to fruition. More than 270 donors donated or pledged almost $790,000. Because of the generous support of these donors the Courtroom will further enhance the practical skills of our students.

“The trial courtroom will be a place for our students to learn and hone skills that they will be able to use in the courtroom as well as the boardroom …The ability to present information cogently and to argue persuasively are key skills for all law students."

–Former Interim Dean Phyllis L. Crocker

class “C|M|LAW and a scholarship generously funded by past donors has transformed my life. Not only have I made the transition from construction worker to lawyer, I'm working at a fantastic firm doing exciting work and serving clients in ways I never imagined. But none of it would have been possible without the financial support of those who came before. I give to C|M|LAW in gratitude for all I've received and to honor the commitment of those generous strangers whose contributions made my opportunities possible.”

Ways to Support C|M|LAW


There are many ways to make a gift in support of the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Most gifts provide donors with tax benefits. We are pleased to discuss in more detail the various methods of giving: Outright Gifts Cash Gifts of cash make funds available for immediate use by the college. We accept personal checks and most credit cards. Visit our online giving site at Securities In addition to income tax savings, donors can also save capital gains tax if the securities are owned for more than 12 months. Pledges Pledges allow donors to make a commitment that is paid over a period of time based on an agreed-upon schedule of payments.
