in legal education in order to train new lawyers to the highest standards of competence and professionalism. Beyond these initiatives, our faculty and staff have been addressing what we must do as an institution to make sure that our students have the full range of competencies they need to be successful in the globalized world. Our first-year course on the legal profession has become an integral part of the curriculum over the past four years. Collaborative,

Dear Alumni and Friends: As 2011 draws to a close, I have been reflecting on the tremendous changes affecting our profession. It’s a long list, but two in particular seem to rise above all the rest: pervasive technology and globalization. Those of you who have reached a certain age can compare the practice of law 30 years ago with what it is today. If you do, you’ll probably find that technology has had an enormous impact on the legal profession. If you look ahead to 2050 — when most of our current first-year students will retire — globalization heads the list of trends that will have an equal impact on today’s practitioners. Our faculty members continue to make legal education in our global society a high priority. From the growing number of professional summer internships offered in India, Brazil, and China through the school’s Center on the Global Legal Profession to our faculty’s scholarship and teaching on the effects of globalization on our profession, the Maurer School of Law is on the forefront of educating tomorrow’s lawyers for success in this challenging and interconnected world. Faculty research on globalization is also informing our curriculum. In the spring semester, we will offer a seminar in transnational law. Taught by Professor Fred Aman, a world-renowned expert on the subject, this innovative course goes beyond traditional doctrines of international law and examines the relationships among domestic, international, and private-sector players

mixed-channel consortia models similar to Law without Walls and ETL will further enable our faculty members, with the help of our boards, to design a curricular arc that maximizes our students’ exposure to a much wider variety of courses and conferences beyond our own offerings, and at lower costs. The geographic diversity and global experience of this year’s first-year class of 240 reflects the fundamental changes in our profession and our world. More than 100 have worked for more than two years since receiving their undergraduate degree, and more than 100 have significant international experience. They have lived, studied or served in over fifty countries, from Argentina, Afghanistan, and Brazil to Ukraine, Uruguay, and Zambia. Twenty-two have advanced degrees. The students in our international graduate program further contribute to our global diversity, hailing from five continents and 20 countries. The engagement of our alumni and friends continues to make a tremendous difference in the success of the school. More than 900 of you volunteered your time and talent in a wide array of activities, from judging Moot Court to speaking at a Career Choices session. And your financial support is making a critical difference in our ability to grow to meet the challenges ahead. Your generosity is deeply appreciated. In January 2012, I begin a one-year term as president of the Association of American Law Schools. In preparation for this, I have been working with our peer law schools to examine what it will take to train the next generation of lawyers to become the ethical leaders of an increasingly global society. There are as many ways to accomplish this goal as there are law schools, but one fact is certain and inevitable: Our world is becoming smaller and more interdependent, and law schools themselves are becoming sites of globalization. Law schools such as ours, schools that capitalize on this historic shift, will lead the way. Your continued generosity will enable us to continue this important work, and we are most grateful for your support. All best,

dozen courses in the international arena.

A law degree continues to open the door to dozens of career opportunities — more than any other course of study. Lawyers from the Maurer School of Law work in private firms, in government, in business, in public advocacy, and in many other fields. At Indiana Law, exploring and planning for the right career starts during the first year. One Ls attend career planning sessions, hear from alumni about their experiences in the profession, and assess their own strengths and interests. During the summer, they have the opportunity to apply their classroom learning in a variety of settings around the world, becoming immersed in other countries’ legal systems, culture, and values. The growing influence of globalization makes these experiences an increasingly important part of a lawyer’s professional competency. The generosity of the Law School’s alumni and friends helps our students gain real-life experiences that inform their future, both stateside and abroad. Here are just two examples.

Seeing the world in a new way: Stewart Fellows program grows to 11 students in two hemispheres In the summer of 2010, six Indiana Law students spent several weeks in India, absorbing the culture and experiencing the legal profession in the world’s largest democracy under the auspices of the Law School’s Center on the Global Legal Profession. This year, the program expanded to 11 rising second-year students in two countries: Brazil and India. Made possible by the generosity of Milton Stewart, JD’71, the Stewart Fellowships introduce students to the profession through hands-on experience in highly reputed law firms, corporations, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Thiemann had many opportunities to experience the Indian legal system upfront. “Several times during my internship, I was asked to help counsel who were arguing for changes in public policy before the India Central Electricity Commission and the Supreme Court,” he said. “The internship not only sharpened my legal research and writing skills, but also let me see firsthand some of India’s top lawyers work through problems and respond on their feet to tough questions.

Those are skills that will benefit business lawyers regardless of where they practice.” Nathan Wenk, JD/MBA’12, spent the past year at SKKU before returning to Bloomington to complete his joint degree. “I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent in Seoul, learning about business — but also learning about another culture,” he said. “There is no substitute for being immersed in a foreign society. Being in social, educational, and business settings with my international peers gave me a new perspective on how communication can vary around the world.”

The Law School’s selection committee has announced the winners of the 2011 Maurer School of Law Distinguished Service Award. Once again, the pool of nominees was an extremely talented group of alumni, and the selection committee had a very difficult time choosing the winners.

The Maurer School of Law community gathered in the Moot

Court Room twice this fall to remember two distinguished professors.

Prof. Dennis Long, JD/MSES’98, was honored on August 25

for his contributions to the legal profession and for his influence as an outstanding teacher. He died unexpectedly on August 4. Prof. Don Gjerdingen offered a moving tribute about Long’s influence on students and the example he set for the wider world. Other remembrances came from Profs. Gene Shreve and Fred Cate, and from Henry Efroymson, a partner at Ice Miller LLP in Indianapolis who was Long’s supervising attorney when he practiced there.

He died on January 26 after a brief illness.

Prof. Jeffrey Stake recalled his friend’s extraordinary intelligence and memory. “Pat absorbed it all,” he said.

Not only could Pat recall ideas; he could usually express them more cogently and elegantly than their original author.” Malcolm Abrams, publisher of Bloom magazine, entertained the audience with witty

Ethical, and Philosophical Challenges.” Dr. Brand died of pancreatic cancer in 2009.

A professor of law at Catholic University in Washington, D.C., Smith has devoted significant time throughout his career to the subject of palliative care. His lecture analyzed the two foundational challenges to human health care at the end-state of life: the extent to which a patient with a terminal illness can control his or her treatment options, and the level of state control and intervention in the dying process.

Dean Robel praised Baude’s gifts as a teacher. “Through the brilliance of his mind, he took the visible and

the ordinary and showed us the invisible and the extraordinary. . .He did it with humor and humility and without flashiness. His gift wasn’t to make complex things simple; it was to make students appreciate and relish complexity. In Pat’s class, you needed to be able to have the guts to put your pencil down, turn off your laptop, and listen. If you could do that, you began to learn how you could turn an idea just slightly and subtly, and if you engaged with that over time, and you listened, he would show you how. Not as well as he could do it, of course, but well enough to start your

Gene Shreve, Richard S. Melvin professor of law, has donated a significant piece of African art to the Maurer School of Law. A knowledgeable and passionate collector, Prof. Gene Shreve first became interested in African art several years ago when teaching at the Université Panthéon-Assas (Paris II). “The university is located near the Place Maubert, where I used to see African artists displaying their work every day,” he recalled. “My attraction grew as time passed, and I began building my own collection.” A few years later, Shreve had the opportunity to teach in Monrovia, Liberia, fulfilling a lifelong wish to visit Africa. He became fascinated not only by the aesthetic of African art, but also by the challenge of locating authentic works — ones actually used in ceremonies or for religious purposes. The piece donated to the school (inset) is a sculptural ensemble depicting a criminal trial under customary law of the Baule people. It is from the Ivory Coast and dates from 1900-1920. In the sculpture, the accused appears before the village council. He has been caught stealing a pig, which is tethered at the right rear of the platform. He faces the head of the council, whose seniority is evidenced by the complexity of his coiffure. The empty stools indicate that this was not an important enough matter to require attendance of the full council. Behind the accused stands a member of the village who will administer punishment once the council announces its verdict (noted by the whip resting across his shoulder). Once the accused has been punished, he will be accepted back into the village. Had he been convicted


of a more serious crime, he might have been banished — a harsh punishment in the Baule’s communitarian culture.

THROUGH DONATION TO LAW SCHOOL Before moving to its permanent home at the Law School, Shreve’s gift may be going on the road. Monica Blackmun Visoná, assistant professor of art at the University of Kentucky, would like to include the piece for an exhibition in the next year or two, which she hopes will take place at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art. Visoná has also expressed interest in another Baule sculpture from Shreve’s collection. Shreve has donated other pieces to Indiana University, including an equestrian marionette from the Bamana people, which is on permanent display at the IU Art Museum. He has also donated works that he describes as “raucous” to the and the Serious Collector — an Essay,” was published in the April 2010 issue of Maine Antique Digest. As passionate about teaching as he is about art, Shreve has received numerous teaching awards, including the prestigious Leon Wallace Teaching Award. A museum in itself, his office displays dozens of items from his collection alongside his scholarly works and recognition for his achievements in the classroom.

As an on-the-ground advocate for democracy across the globe, IU Maurer School of Law Prof. David Williams is used to confronting danger. But his recent trip to Burma on behalf of that country’s burgeoning democracy movement landed him in more trouble than he bargained for. Williams is executive director of Indiana Law’s Center for Constitutional Democracy, which brings leaders of reform movements in countries struggling for constitutional democracy together with university scholars who offer useful expertise. He regularly meets with people who are working for freedom from the ground up, not only in the cities where reforms are taking place, but also in the jungles, mountains, and deserts where people are trying to make a better future. On a recent trip to Burma, Williams and the Center’s assistant director Ngun Cung (Andrew) Lian landed in Mangshi, China, en route to a meeting with the Kachin Independence Army in Burma. Unfortunately, the Ministry of State Security, China’s secret police, learned about their visit and began trailing them as soon as they left Beijing airport. “The police followed our car all the way to the Burmese border,” Williams recalled. “Apparently they knew that I liked to trek through the jungle and cross the border on foot because by the time we got there, they had closed it to all traffic.”


CONVERTS EJECTION FROM CHINA TO DIPLOMATIC INVITATION Another surprise awaited Williams and Lian when they arrived in a small Chinese border town. “About a dozen Chinese Secret Police officers were staying in the same hotel upon our arrival and watching us every step of our movements. (I saw them all at the interrogation center later),” Lian said. “The Chinese Security Force closed down the road from Border Town to KIO Headquarters for three days. Finally, they arrested and charged me, and I was fined for violation of Chinese social visa privileges.”

Department of State found out what was going on and enlisted the appropriate Chinese diplomats,” said Williams. “Once that happened, the local police — who had been treating us well anyway — became even more solicitous. The Chief Immigration Officer was very upset about the incident and apologized to us several times. He even prepared a huge dinner for us at his own expense. We’ve been invited back as honored guests of the Chinese government.”

Williams and Lian managed to convert this incident into something of a diplomatic coup. “Our friends at the

The Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies (IJGLS) was founded twenty years ago, in recognition of the fact that globalization was producing new legal institutions, new arenas of professionalism, new conceptions of law across academic disciplines and in practice — and accordingly, new directions for legal scholarship. “We decided that the new journal would meet three criteria,” recalled Alfred C. Aman, Jr., Roscoe C. O’Byrne Alfred C. Aman, Jr.

professor of law and co-founder of IJGLS. “It had to be interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, and inclusive of globalization in the broadest sense.” Aman added that the last two criteria helped differentiate it from other existing global or transnational journals. “By focusing directly on globalization as involving not only a shift in the scale of law, but also (and especially) the dynamics of domestic legal processes, we hope to advance understanding of the ways in which law, politics, culture, and economics respond to and shape each other,” Aman wrote in an introduction to the first issue of IJGLS in the fall of 1993. “This initial purpose has become more important during the past 20 years,” he said recently. “The ‘denationalizing’ of globalization, such as the increasing role of non-governmental organizations, multinational corporations, and other non-state actors, has become a particular focus of the Journal in recent issues.” The Journal’s dual peer review — by both student and faculty editors — further helps distinguish it. IJGLS has emphasized symposia — both on campus and in print — as a forum for its contributors’ scholarship. A special 20th anniversary symposium is in the works for April 5-6, 2012. Titled “Globalization and Law: The Next Twenty


Years,” it will focus on “law in the broadest sense as a site where globalization takes aspirational and institutional form, encounters critique and contestation, and shapes the practice of law as both academic discipline and professional art,” Aman wrote in an invitation to participants.

20TH YEAR WITH SYMPOSIUM Several leading global scholars who contributed to IJGLS earliest issues will again participate in the symposium, including Jöst Delbruck, professor emeritus of law and a co-founder of IJGLS; Martin M. Shapiro, James W. and Isabel Coffroth professor of law at UC Berkeley School of Law; and Saskia Sassen, Robert S. Lynd professor of sociology at Columbia University.

When patent attorney David A. Rose, JD’70, arrived in Bloomington more than 40 years ago, he wasn’t sure where

Rose builds IP practice emphasizing the business of law

the practice of law would lead him. But several well-planned decisions have resulted in a rewarding professional career, in both lawyering and the business of lawyering. Rose was on campus this fall as Practitioner-in-Residence in the Law School’s Center for Intellectual Property Research. In an interview before a lunchtime meeting with students, he recalled that his training in ROTC while

in law school took him to Maryland shortly after graduation for office training,

but he was discharged early because the Army didn’t need him.

“My wife and I were free to choose where we wanted to live,” he said. “So we

listed about 12 big cities that looked interesting, and Houston was one of them.

I interviewed for positions in corporate law, but because of my mechanical

engineering degree and the demand for patent lawyers, I ended up selecting patent law, “even though I had no experience in the field.” Rose was hired by Butler & Binion, at that time one of Texas’ largest firms, and was named partner in 1977. “After several years there, I began to realize that I enjoyed the business of law and could successfully manage a firm.” Members of the firm’s IP section agreed, and in 1991 all nine of them left Butler to form Conley Rose. (Butler & Binion dissolved in 1999.) The new firm gave Rose the chance to apply his skill and interest in the business of running a practice. “All of the IP lawyers joined us at the new firm. This gave us an instant client base because there was no one left at Butler & Binion who could handle their IP needs,” he explained. “That helped our cash flow. As we grew to handle large patent portfolios, this experience helped us to build credibility with prospective clients. And if you’re in a specialized practice like IP, you can go after large companies’ business without getting in the way of their relationships with their outside general-practice firms.” Rose’s strategy has worked. Under his leadership, Conley Rose has grown to nearly 40 professionals, with offices in Houston, Dallas, and Austin. Their clients include blue-chip enterprises in the energy and technology industries including HP, Texas Instruments, RIM, Sprint, Halliburton, Cameron, National-Oilwell Varco, and Chevron Phillips. Rose cited another benefit of a smaller, specialized practice: the ability to set the culture. “I always advise law students that they should consider the big-firm and small-firm cultures carefully when weighing their career options. Smaller firms tend to be more flexible and family-oriented. You might work fewer hours for a lower base salary, with bonuses

Although the practice has changed over the past 40 years — more fixed-fee arrangements, more contingent fee litigation, ever increasing overhead — Rose continues to find promise in the specialized practice model, even as he winds down his own involvement in the firm. “I’ve been working on succession as the founding shareholders in the firm retire,” he said. “The founders of the firm have a lot of credibility with clients because we took the initial risk. Now we’re helping others build that same credibility so the business we’ve built can continue to grow after we are gone.”

available to those who want to work longer hours. In a smaller firm, there’s no one-size-fits-all model.”

A partner in the Chicago office of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, Thomas M. Hamilton, JD’69 has built a practice in

Hamilton reflects on 40 years of litigation and learning

declaratory judgment litigation — a field that plays to his strengths, and one in which he’s enjoyed every minute. After graduation, Hamilton joined the then 29 attorneys of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP in Chicago, a firm that today numbers nearly 500 attorneys. For more than 40 years, he’s performed declaratory judgment litigation in commercial and professional insurance cases. “I always considered myself more of a writer, so it made sense for me to do work

that supported our trial lawyers,” he said. “As luck would have it, declaratory

judgment work became a prima donna specialty right about the time I moved

into it, so I had the chance to build my practice early.”

Hamilton explained that Cook County’s unusual chancery courts system

operates under a much faster calendar. “We can deliver an opinion to our

clients and get a resolution of most cases within 18 months,” he said, adding

that the system’s clear procedural rules and on-point precedents help things run smoothly. “Opposing counsel is usually familiar with the system, and there’s a great deal of respect among judges and members of the chancery bar,” he said. “It’s a wonderful area of practice.” In addition to his skill before the chancery bar, Hamilton has become an expert mediator, often leading clients to a solution in both the declaratory judgment action and the underlying liability claim. In 2005, he completed intensive training at Pepperdine University School of Law’s Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution, and is a certified mediator in Cook County’s Major Case Civil Mediation Program. “It’s been great to learn a new area of the law this late in my career,” he said. Hamilton has seen many changes during the past 40 years. “When I started practicing, there was a delay of up to two months before the appellate courts published their advance sheets,” he said. “So I used to write summaries of the cases, mimeograph them, and walk them around to judges’ and other lawyers’ offices. It was a great way for a guy from Fort Wayne, Indiana to get to know other members of the Chicago Bar.” He added that the firm wouldn’t let him make photocopies. “It was too expensive!” he laughed. Despite the marvels of today’s technology, Hamilton remembers fondly the days when he worked more closely with his assistant and younger lawyers in the firm. “More eyes used to look at work before it went out, which helped maintain quality,” he said. “We used to have a docket clerk who’d been with us for 30 years, and he was one more check on accuracy before he physically walked the filings over to the court house. Now, more often than not, the other half of my team is my PC.”

in Chicago. “I wish I’d gotten involved earlier, because it’s a great experience,” he said. Although he extols the virtues of working for a firm, he encourages new lawyers to develop their own skills. “You are your own best manager,” he said. “If you develop your own skill set and constantly improve it, that will serve you and your clients better than anything else.” Hamilton retires from Hinshaw on December 31, 2011, and he’s following his own advice about skill development. “On January 2, 2012, I’ll start a new job as interim vice president and corporate counsel for our clients, OMS National Insurance Company and Fortress Insurance Company. There’s always something new to learn.”

Law degree takes Michael to a new bench – this time, in a laboratory

Edward L. Michael, JD’81, started law school with a goal of practicing as a trial lawyer in Chicago. But he soon found that his legal training took him in other directions. “Like a lot of law students, I interviewed on campus with the Chicago firms and took a job with Chadwell & Kayser, which is now out of business,” he recalled. “I was assigned to a small case ‘way up in Lake County.’ One of the firm’s top partners represented the client. And that client was Abbott,” he said, referring to the global health care

company headquartered in the Chicago suburbs.

Michael remembered that the case involved arguing a point of civil procedure

law before the judge. “Unfortunately,” he said, “the lawyer on the other

side was Philip W. Tone, who had been a U.S. Court of Appeals judge before

joining the Jenner & Block firm. After I had finished arguing my point, he

pointed out to the judge that he had written the Illinois Civil Procedure Code.” Despite this somewhat inauspicious beginning, Michael found himself doing more and more work for Abbott, and in 1985 he was offered a position in the company’s legal department. “The department was a lot smaller than it is now, and I got to work on litigation for most divisions,” he said. “I was assigned early on to a diagnostics case, and a couple of years after that I was offered a group marketing manager position.” Michael’s new role as a business executive soon took him overseas, where we was vice president for Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Additional assignments led to a promotion in 2007 to his current role as executive vice president, diagnostics, in charge of the company’s diagnostics, molecular, and point-of-care businesses. Although Michael has spent most of the past two decades on the business side of Abbott, he continues to use his legal training. “My degree has helped with everything I’ve done,” he said. “Learning the law gave me a new way to think about problems. Plus legal issues always come up in business situations — contracts, labor law, intellectual property, tax.” And as head of a business with 75 percent of its sales outside the U.S., Michael says his law degree has helped him confront the challenges of globalization. “Lawyers have to be more than technicians. We have to know the world and know how to give good advice in the context of a particular country’s culture.” He added the pace of globalization will only accelerate, making these skills more important than ever for future practitioners. Michael credits his success to his being passionate about his career. “Try to find something you enjoy doing,” he advises future lawyers. “Opportunities present themselves when you’re doing what you like to do — and when

on same-sex marriage and the Defense of Marriage Act. The symposium, “Same-Sex Marriage and the Future of DOMA: Law, Politics, Federalism, and Families,” focused on lawsuits challenging the federal Defense of Marriage Act and recent controversies over whether the government should continue defending DOMA. Maura Healey, chief of the Civil Rights Division of the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, delivered a lecture titled

“The efforts of our LGBT Advisory Board have been spectacular,” said Dean Robel. In particular, she cited Board President Jerry J. Burgdoerfer, JD’83, Michael D.

“Many of the members have volunteered to be mentors to OUTlaw members, and have hosted brunches and dinners to get to know the students better. A donation by one alum allowed us to attend the Lambda Legal Dinner, which gave us a chance to network in the Indianapolis legal community. Without the Board’s support, OUTlaw would not be able to continue to grow and bring awareness to LGBT issues to students at the Law School,” Morrison concluded.


Steve Sanders, a lecturer at the University of Michigan Law School, moderated the panel discussion. On November 3, a former judge who struck down Proposition 8, the California voter initiative banning same-sex marriage, delivered a lecture titled “On the Bench and in the Game.” Vaughn R. Walker, former chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, unconstitutional under both the due process and equal protection clauses of the U.S. Constitution. Proposition 8 was a voter initiative-constitutional amendment that eliminated the right of same-sex couples to marry. Walker is the first known gay person to serve as a federal judge. As such, his decision generated controversy not only for its substance, but also because proponents of Proposition 8 asserted that Walker should have recused himself from the case.

In April, the Law School’s LGBT Alumni Advisory Board sponsored a symposium on the future of same-sex marriage. Participants included (from left) Maura Healey, Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office; Steve Sanders, co-organizer of the event; Jerry Burgdoerfer, JD’83, LGBT Alumni Board current president; Mike Shumate, vice president, co-organizer; and Kathleen Sweeney, JD’84, past president.

a message from the alumni board president

Dear Friends: It is my privilege to have been elected President of the Maurer School of Law’s Alumni Board in October of this year. As a member of the Alumni Board for the past ten years, I have witnessed the Board transform itself into a highly energized group dedicated to the continued improvement of our Law School, with full support and appreciation from Dean Lauren Robel. I have also had the opportunity to observe first-hand the energy, enthusiasm, and engagement of the school’s students, faculty, and staff. Their collaborative efforts have resulted in an unparalleled legal learning environment and are producing highly competent and prepared lawyers to lead our profession in the years ahead. As alumni, all of us can play an important role in shaping future lawyers. Whether mentoring students, judging Moot Court, sharing experiences with first-year students, or networking over a cup of coffee, our advice matters. I hope that you will join me and the hundreds of alums who have contributed their time and talent to the school’s most important objective: helping students find the career that’s right for them. I would like to thank Angela Neboyskey, JD’00, for her outstanding leadership of the Alumni Board during the past year. Her dedication and enthusiasm (and baking skills) will be hard to match! Sincerely,

Joe O’Connor, JD’78 Bunger & Robertson
