From The Dean:

From their first visits to our campus to the moment they walk across the Wolstein Center stage to receive their diplomas, our students experience first-hand what it means to be a part of the ClevelandMarshall family. We take pride in having a strong network of engaged alumni and friends, and share with students the value of having committed supporters who give to the law school in order to create opportunities for our students’ success. That commitment is evident in the time our alumni and friends spend mentoring and sharing their experience with students, and in the generous financial support that funds student scholarships, among other things. As competition among law schools for prospective students increases, the availability of scholarship awards becomes critical. Scholarships enable ClevelandMarshall to attract and retain the brightest and most dedicated students. At a time when the average student’s law school debt is growing, your support of scholarships allows us to remain a school of opportunity, attracting the type of students who make all of us in the Cleveland-Marshall family proud with their passion and dedication to succeed. One source of scholarship support for our students is the gifts you make to our annual fund. Last year, annual fund giving grew to over $600,000 even though fewer than 10 percent of our alumni contributed. Imagine the scholarship support we could provide if all 10,000 of our alumni made even a modest gift! This is our goal, and I am pleased to announce that we will be assisted in reaching it by Kathryn Bricker, who has joined our development staff as Manager of Annual Giving and Special Projects. Katie, who previously was with The Cleveland Clinic, shares with me, and our entire advancement team, a commitment to keeping Cleveland-Marshall at the forefront of legal education through alumni engagement. The other major source of scholarship support is our named scholarship funds. Over the years, generous donors have created 71 named scholarship funds at Cleveland-Marshall, 55 of which are fully endowed. These donors have established important legacies that communicate the value they place on our legal education by assisting others to follow in their steps. The donors listed in this book have been an integral part of the success of this law school and for that, all of us at the law school extend to them our sincere appreciation. I hope you will again join me in making your annual fund contribution to help ensure the success of the next generation of the Cleveland-Marshall family, and that you will encourage your friends and former classmates to join in supporting our ongoing mission.

Dear Fellow Graduates and Friends of Cleveland-Marshall: As the co-chairs of the 2013-2014 ClevelandMarshall Annual Fund Campaign, we join Dean Boise in thanking you for your generous support of the College of Law. Your investment played a critical role in the success of the 2012-2013 Annual Fund Campaign. We are proud to report that giving to the Annual Fund increased by 3% over last year. Most notably and following a national trend, 34% of our donors are taking advantage of online giving. Thirteen law firms joined the 100% Club by securing 100% alumni giving in the Law Firm Giving Challenge. From FY12 to FY13, donor retention increased by 8%, from 59% to 67%, signaling increased satisfaction in our fundraising strategies.

M. Colette Gibbons ’76 Partner, Ice Miller LLP

It is due to the support of people like you that students are able to thrive at Cleveland-Marshall, and we look to you to join us as we expand our horizons in 2013-2014. As many of you know, 80% of our students depend on scholarships and loans to study at Cleveland-Marshall, and many of these awards are made possible because of the wonderful support we receive from alumni and friends. All gifts, regardless of size, make an impact and express our commitment to Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Please consider making a gift and being a key player in the success of our students. Thank you to those who have supported the law school. We hope that you will not only contribute to our annual fund, but also consider increasing the amount of your gift.

Thank you again for your support and for helping Cleveland-Marshall College of Law thrive in educating students to “Learn Law. Live Justice.”

Dear Alumni and Friends: As the President of the Cleveland-Marshall Law Alumni Association for the 2013-2014 academic year, I am grateful for your continued support of the Cleveland-Marshall Annual Fund this past year. The strong support from our alumni and friends fuels the ongoing effort to keep Cleveland-Marshall as a school of high achievement, both regionally and nationally. Our assistance allows the school to offer the best possible educational experience to students. As many of you know, the Law Alumni Association offers our alumni and the Northeast Ohio legal community a wide array of programs and activities. Our association will continue to work with the law school to present timely and relevant CLEs, social events, professional networking opportunities, student mentoring, scholarships, and new lawyer training, to best meet the needs of our members and current students. Attendance at our annual recognition luncheon in May was again strong as more than 1,000 members of the bench, bar, and business community joined to celebrate our distinguished alumni and to help us welcome a new class of graduates into our ranks. A sincere thank you goes out to my fellow officers and board members for their support and hard work. You can find the current roster of the Association’s Board listed on page 32 this publication. These individuals share my pride in being a part of the Cleveland-Marshall family, and have found an active opportunity to continue to be involved with the law school that means so much to them. We are always looking to engage our former classmates, so if you would like to get involved for the first time, or reconnect after some time away, please contact any of our officers or board members. For more information, or to join as a member, please access our website at Thank you for your commitment to Cleveland-Marshall and support of our mission to help students “Learn Law. Live Justice.” It is my honor and privilege to lead this outstanding organization, and I look forward to seeing you throughout the year at one or more of our many events. Sincerely, Gregory S.

Cleveland-Marshall Honors

Iris Wolstein

In 2004, Iris S. Wolstein committed $6.25 million to Cleveland State University and ClevelandMarshall College of Law in memory of her husband, Bert L. Wolstein, a 1953 cum laude graduate of Cleveland-Marshall. The Wolsteins’ gift was at the time the largest philanthropic gift in the history of both CSU and the law school, with $1.25 million earmarked as a challenge gift to create the Bert L. and Iris S. Wolstein Endowed Scholarship Fund. Through the “Wolstein Challenge,” more than $2.5 million was raised for the scholarship endowment. Nine years later, Cleveland-Marshall is seeing the true benefit of that generosity as Wolstein scholarships have been awarded 50 times to 39 students based on academic accomplishments and financial need. This June, the school showed its gratitude for the much needed scholarship support as CSU President Ronald M. Berkman and Cleveland-Marshall Dean Craig M. Boise hosted an on-campus luncheon honoring Mrs. Wolstein and her late husband. The event was an opportunity for past and current Wolstein scholars to thank Mrs. Wolstein for her support. It also allowed Mrs. Wolstein to see how her gift has helped some of the best and brightest law students achieve successful careers. Past Wolstein scholarship recipients work at organizations such as BakerHostetler, Jones Day, Nurenberg Paris Heller & McCarthy, Squire Sanders and the United States Court of Appeals. “I am very grateful for the generosity of the Wolsteins, because their support allowed me to focus on my studies and contribute to the Cleveland-Marshall community,” stated Benjamin Beckman ’10, a Wolstein scholar and current associate at Jones Day. “Without financial support from the Wolstein Scholarship, I would not have been able to attend law school.”

In addition to remarks from President Berkman and Dean Boise, two Wolstein Scholarship recipients, including Squire Sanders associate Alana Jochum ’10, expressed their thanks to Mrs. Wolstein and other supporters of the endowment fund in attendance. “Mrs. Wolstein’s support of Cleveland-Marshall comes from a place of true generosity—she believes passionately in Cleveland and our school, and she believes in our ability as lawyers to better both places through our work,” remarked Jochum to the other Wolstein recipients in attendance. “I believe we owe Mrs. Wolstein two things– a sincere thanks for her empowering generosity, and a commitment to continue to pursue our life dreams and goals.”

“I choose to give back to Cleveland-Marshall because of how vital a role the law school plays in the Cleveland legal community. Having an office just down the street from the urban campus allows me to give back to the school beyond my financial contributions, by serving as a member of the school’s National Advisory Council since its development in 1999. During that time, I’ve had the opportunity to become friends with many of the school’s Deans and professors, and know firsthand the valuable resource they offer to our community. Several of my associates are graduates of Cleveland-Marshall, and I see daily the impact of the quality education that I’m contributing to.” Margaret W.

The Legacy Society, formerly known as the Stapleton Legacy Society, consists of individuals who have generously included Cleveland-Marshall in their estate plans. The Stapleton Legacy Society was aptly named for Dean Wilson G. Stapleton ’34, who served for 32 years as a faculty member and then as dean. He is best remembered for his legacy of kindness to the students and his willingness to help them as alumni. Through the Legacy Society, we show our gratitude to individuals who care deeply about law students of the future, as Dean Stapleton did, and have included Cleveland-Marshall in their estate plans through wills, living trusts or other types of planned or deferred gifts. Membership in the Legacy Society is open to those who have made a planned or deferred commitment to the law school using such vehicles as insurance policies, annuities, IRAs and real estate or other bequests. If you have remembered the law school in your estate plans, please let us know and we will welcome you to the Legacy Society. Contact: Jennifer Nye, Director of Advancement 216.687.2491

The Legacy Society Our gratitude to the current members of The Legacy Society:

ClevelandMarshall alumni and friends have donated more than $3 million in scholarship support over the last six fiscal years

Cleveland State University

Vujevich Gives Back with Cleveland-Marshall’s Legacy Society One of six siblings raised on Cleveland’s West Side, Joel Vujevich ’94 and his family have built a legacy at Cleveland State University since the school’s very beginning. He is one of four siblings to attend CSU, his brother John being the first as a graduate in the school’s inaugural four-year class in 1969. Vujevich liked the school so much he continued on to Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, and the decision opened doors to a career beyond his dreams.

“Cleveland-Marshall has the wisdom to realize there are people like myself who are non-traditional students but can compete in law school at a very high level” Less than a year after passing the bar, Vujevich was offered a position at the United Auto Workers headquarters in Detroit. Using his legal skills in the auto parts supplier department, he specialized in contract negotiations. Vujevich enjoyed the high stress and intensity of labor negotiations while fighting for middle-class workers who hoped to provide a better future for their children, as his father did for him. In addition to his family’s support, assistance from the UAW was a major reason why Vujevich furthered his education. Originally a union carpenter, he decided to pursue post-secondary education shortly after being elected a union steward. He studied management and labor relations at CSU, then continued on to Cleveland-Marshall while taking advantage of partial tuition reimbursement from the UAW. Vujevich realizes that not every student has the opportunity he had to have employer assistance help cover the cost of law school tuition. That is one of the many reasons he gives back to the school’s annual fund, and why he became a charter member of the Legacy Society in 2002. “Everything I have is because of my UAW success, and I believe that success is because of Cleveland-Marshall and Cleveland State,” explained Vujevich. “I didn’t hesitate to join the Stapleton (Legacy) Society. It is such an easy way to give back.” Getting through school was no small feat for Vujevich, as it took 12 years to complete his undergraduate and law degrees as a part-time student while working at least 48 hours a week, and as many as 60 once he was elected UAW Local 1050 president during law school. Without the part-time evening program at ClevelandMarshall, he would have been unable to attend law school, and he wants to make sure other talented individuals are afforded similar opportunities. “Cleveland-Marshall has the wisdom to realize there are people like myself who are non-traditional students but can compete in law school at a very high level,” said Vujevich. “It’s important to not let money or other factors stand in the way of talented students who can change the world, and I’m honored to play a part in that.” Cleveland-Marshall College of Law
