Dear Alumni and Friends: terms of diversity and personal achievement. Our students face many challenges and opportunities as the profession adapts to the demands of a global economy. To help them prepare for this new environment, we have launched our Center on the Global Legal Profession and forged partnerships with schools in Korea and India. A new firstyear course on the legal profession provides students with the tools they need to identify and evaluate important career choices and to develop their own distinctive strategies for career development. Our strategic plan is built on the following vision: to be a highly visible and influential law school whose faculty, students, and alumni promote knowledge, justice, and the public good around the state, the nation, and the world. I am deeply grateful to our extraordinarily committed volunteers and
donors who have helped make our vision real and tangible. Your investments create incredible momentum. The IU Maurer School of Law has risen in the national rankings and is now recognized as a top 10 public law school. And yet there is much to be done. The challenges of the recent economic downturn have greatly affected the School, our students, and indeed our profession, and we turn to our alumni and friends for help now more than ever. As the honor rolls in this publication attest, the IU Maurer School of Law continues to build on its strong tradition of volunteerism and philanthropy. Our alumni provide financial support, serve on advisory boards, judge moot court, donate scholarships, teach classes, and mentor our students in myriad ways.
The Indiana University Maurer School of Law reached several significant milestones in 2009. As we celebrate our successes and prepare for the challenges of the future, I would like to highlight a few of our accomplishments and say thank you to the many alumni and friends who made them possible.
This level of support is especially necessary and appreciated in the career and professional development arena. Law students across the country are looking for employment in a legal market that shed 2,000 jobs in October 2009 alone. Fortunately, our students are connected to a creative, energetic, and engaged group of alumni and friends who offer crucial advice and assistance. During our Sept. 25 Alumni Summit, we surveyed 70 members of our alumni advisory boards, including our Board of Visitors; Alumni Board; the Intellectual Property, Business Law, and Environmental Law Program Advisory Boards; and the Latino and Black Law Student Alumni Advisory Boards. These alumni reported that they have worked closely with our Office of Career and Professional Development to provide shadowing opportunities, resume reviews, networking assistance, and career coaching. In addition, these volunteers worked independently with students as mentors, on-campus or on-location recruiters, and provided other forms of active career assistance. This group is representative of an entire network of advocates for our students. I cannot thank you enough. I know that I will be calling on all of you in the future for your counsel and assistance as the IU Maurer School of Law faces the challenges that the new decade is sure to bring. The School has benefited greatly from your investments of time and treasure, and I am looking forward to working with all of you as we capitalize on the momentum we have built together.
The visionary generosity of one outstanding alumnus, Michael S. Maurer, JD’67, has given the School a new name and will provide much-needed scholarship assistance for generations of students. A generous gift from the Lilly Endowment has enabled us to hire five outstanding faculty members whose timely scholarship will affect the profession and society for years to come. The Matching the Promise capital campaign has raised more than $90 million – 300 percent ahead of our goal with one year to go. In order to make the most of these incredible gifts, we are preparing a new strategic plan that will guide the School through the next decade.

Regenovich noted that donors can determine exactly how their gifts are used. A gift can be for something as specific as a particular clinic — the School has several that give students a chance to put their education into action while helping the local community — or for an all-encompassing purpose like the School’s general fund. Regenovich and his staff, Gift Planning Officer Brian Kearney and Director of Annual Giving and Stewardship Lisa Hosey, work with alumni to find ways to match a donor’s passion with an opportunity at the School. “We try to connect the dots with where their interests lie and what the Law School has to offer,” Regenovich said. “We want to get them involved with something they care about.”

Development office helping alumni reconnect “Good afternoon! This is Dean Regenovich calling from the IU Maurer School of Law....” By the time Regenovich, the School’s assistant dean for advancement, can even finish the sentence, the alumnus on the other end of the line often assumes the School is calling for a monetary gift. It is a tough perception to overcome, but, in fact, Regenovich and his staff focus on helping alumni reconnect before asking for financial support. “Our first order of business is to get our alumni reconnected with the Law School,” Regenovich said. “When people see anything that has the word ‘development’ in the title, right away they think we’re going to show up on their doorstep asking for money. What we’re really trying to do is find ways to engage them with the School.”
Despite a record-setting fundraising campaign, the Law School is in the midst of a once-in-a-lifetime push of forward momentum. Transformative gifts from Michael S. Maurer, JD’67, and his wife, Janie, and from the Lilly Endowment have enabled the School to provide students with an affordable legal education and to hire outstanding new faculty. But the Law School’s wide range of programs and services also needs financial help, especially as state revenue continues to fall below forecasts. “We have been so fortunate with the Lilly and Maurer gifts, but those are designated for very specific purposes,” Regenovich said. “We have incredible opportunities in student programs, clinical programs, student support, and other areas where alumni can really make a difference.”
An attorney who travels the globe for business and recognizes the need to train future lawyers in international legal markets can make a specific gift to the School’s new Center on the Global Legal Profession. An alumnus with a passion for domestic violence prevention can support the Protective Order Project. There is no shortage of opportunities for alumni reconnection. And it doesn’t take a six-figure check to make a difference. “All levels of gifts are important in elevating the Law School to where it can be,” Regenovich emphasized. He encouraged alumni to reconnect with the School. “There is a direct correlation between where we are now and the incredible generosity of our alumni. While financial gifts are great, we need sweat equity just as much. Come spend some time in our classrooms. Help in mentoring our students. Help them find job opportunities. All of these are important pieces to building the future of the Law School.” The Development office is actively working with its counterparts in the Office of Career and Professional Development, hand-carrying student resumes to alumni who may have job leads or could serve as a mentor. “Any possible way we can get our alumni engaged with the School is a plus,” Regenovich said. “It has been gratifying to see the level of support alumni are providing our current students, whether it’s letting them know about an open clerkship or simply connecting with them through a phone call. Our alumni know how tough the economy is right now, and we appreciate all the help they are willing to provide.”

Stewarts introduce law students to a world of art A few weeks ago, a large crowd from the Indiana Law community had gathered in the soaring atrium of the IU Art Museum. Designed by I.M. Pei, the atrium is the gateway into one of the finest art collections on a university campus. Milt and Judi Stewart stood on the steps, watching many law students experience the museum for the first time. It was, as the Stewarts later recalled, an experience of great satisfaction. “When I was an undergrad here at IU, I’m afraid I didn’t have the wisdom — or take the time — to appreciate the culture of this university,” Milt Stewart said. “The Bloomington campus offered so much, whether it was a wonderful art exhibition or an opera or theater production, and, yet, I missed most of it.” Now the client relations partner at Davis Wright Tremaine in Portland,
Ore., Milt and his wife, Judi, have made a pledge to open the eyes of law students to at least one cultural opportunity, hosting an evening reception for the Law School’s students, faculty, and staff. The catered affair has been such a success over the last few years that the Stewarts now intend to host one annually. “It’s really important to me that law students get not just a great legal education, but also the exposure to the abundance of culture on campus,” he said. “We want them to be engaged in the university itself.” The Stewarts have been engaged with IU and Indiana Law for a number of years, but they didn’t know the extent to which they could one day help. Milt Stewart grew up in a home where college wasn’t an option. It was a dream.
“It’s really important to me that law students get not just a great legal education, but also the exposure to the abundance of culture on campus.” — Milt Stewart

“It’s not entirely fair to my parents, both of whom are now gone, but I grew up in a family which could not afford college expenses for me,” he recalled. “There was no college in my future and certainly no law school. But I went to a great high school, West Lafayette High School, and a guidance counselor and principal there helped me understand that I could — and should — go to college. I ended up
at IU because the IU Foundation provided me with scholarships all through my undergrad years. And I was able to go to law school because people who had gone before me had given back in ways that provided me with scholarships and other financial aid. I can’t tell you that I fully appreciated that then, but I do now.”
Center on the Global Legal Profession’s Comparative Law Program named in honor of Stewart
Stewart said the generosity of others gave him the opportunity to better himself. He now hopes others will do the same.
“When I made the decision to go to Portland, I thought I’d be entering into a local practice and that I wouldn’t have any exposure to the global markets,” Stewart said. “I didn’t recognize then the importance the Pacific Rim would play in the world economy.”
“It occurred to me more than 20 years ago that I had an obligation to pay my good fortune forward,” he said. “I had to do for others what someone had done for me.”
Now a successful attorney focusing on mergers and acquisitions, Stewart has become fully aware of the need to train tomorrow’s lawyers in the ways of the world.
That doesn’t necessarily mean financial contributions. Time, talent, and treasure can all have equal value in helping shape the successful career of a current or future student, Stewart said. For Milt and Judi Stewart, that includes introducing law students to life outside of the Law Building. The couple had not been back to the Bloomington campus in some 25 years when Milt Stewart became his firm’s mentor to the son of then IU President Thomas Ehrlich. That connection brought the Stewarts back to visit, and they have since been ardent supporters of the Art Museum, the university, and the Law School. “I wouldn’t be doing the things I do if I hadn’t re-engaged,” Stewart said. “A critical piece of the Law School’s future depends on our alumni finding ways to reconnect with the School. Find your way.”
Milt Stewart, JD’71, was right out of the U.S. Army when he turned down jobs in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, opting instead to begin his legal career at Davis Wright Tremaine in Portland, Ore. He didn’t know it at the time, but Stewart ended up having a virtual front-row seat to witnessing the explosion of globalization in the legal profession.
“Even though I’m based in Portland, a tremendous amount of my practice — at least 40 to 50 percent — involves dealing with issues, companies, and people outside of the United States,” he said. “Anyone who has read The World Is Flat or who keeps up with the national or international press knows the world is shrinking. I used to get exposure to international stocks by buying foreign stocks, but now most of my domestic stocks have international holdings. Whether it’s Colgate or Buick, these products are being manufactured and sold all over the world. The legal implications and opportunities from that are huge. I think a day is coming when our graduates will look as much outside the U.S. as inside for their first job.” For his commitment to the School and its students, the Law School named its Comparative Legal Professions program in Stewart’s honor. The goal of the program, which is part of the Law School’s new Center on the Global Legal Profession, is to immerse students within global markets that are booming centers of commerce, politics, and social change. “We are studying the legal profession not just to learn about the everyday, nutsand-bolts work of lawyers, but also how lawyers are helping to contribute to nationbuilding, promoting transparency, strengthening the rule of law, judicial reform, and providing greater access to justice in different parts of Asia, Latin America, and Africa,” said Professor Jay Krishnan. “Milt Stewart has expertise in all of those regions. He knows lawyers, government officials, NGO workers, and business entrepreneurs all over the world, and his experience and willingness to assist our students in this global endeavor is a huge boon for all of us.” Stewart said he was “completely shocked” by the news that the School was naming a program after him. “It is extraordinarily humbling,” he said. “I am so passionate about this School, and I care about it in so many ways. To have my name associated with it in any way is an incredible honor.” 7

Successful alumnus takes alternative career path Q. Starting off with a little background, why did you decide to return to Indiana for law school after venturing off to Colorado for your undergraduate work? A. I wanted to go to an academic law school as opposed to a practitioner’s law school. I saw law school more as a PhD program than as an opportunity to learn a specific legal skill set. For me, the benefit of having three years of rigorous legal training was excellent preparation for a career. That plan has come together for me because I rely on the skills I learned in law school to give me an advantage in each position I’ve held. Plus, I also attended a public high school in Indianapolis, and to satisfy my teenage wanderlust I went to UC-Boulder. Once I decided to go to law school, I knew it had to be an aesthetically beautiful campus, and, of course, Bloomington is unbeatable in that regard. Q. You graduated in 1982 and had always been a steady donor to the Law School, but within the last few years you’ve really increased your involvement with the School. What encouraged you to get re-engaged? A. It was entirely a result of Dean Robel. Her enthusiasm is contagious. Even though I was not a practicing lawyer when we reconnected at a New York alumni gathering a few years ago, she made a point to get on my calendar. When we met, I found myself being enthusiastically reeled into her orbit. I’m very guarded when it comes to my non-professional commitments. I don’t lightly take on things just because I’m asked. But she really was committed to making a difference, and it shows in the caliber of students and faculty we’re attracting. These positive changes are now being recognized by U.S. News & World Report.
All of that passion and success come from leadership. I’m very proud of the School, and I’m extremely appreciative of the skills that I gained there and how they’ve given me a competitive advantage in my business career. You combine that with how fun Lauren makes it to be engaged, and it’s a pleasure to commit both my time and my financial contributions to the School. Q. Given the position you’re in, I’m sure you’re asked all the time to be involved with different organizations and charities. Why is it important to you to support Indiana Law? A. The public law school education was instrumental in my success. I think those of us who have been more fortunate in terms of what we’ve achieved financially — and I don’t mean to say that we’ve done more important work — but those of us who have had that opportunity need to give back disproportionately to our School. That’s one reason why Mickey Maurer is a hero and mentor for me. He’s gone on to do such great things — not only as an entrepreneur, but philanthropically as well. I hope others may one day say, in some small way, that I made a fraction of the difference that Mickey has. Q. You made a recent pledge to endow the Scott N. Flanders scholarship. How does it feel knowing you will have given future students tremendous help in the pursuit of their legal education? A. I want our Law School to be accessible to qualified students regardless of their financial status. A public law school has the responsibility to be accessible to students regardless of socioeconomic status. The accessibility of a public law education has changed since I attended the School because the cost of delivering a high-caliber legal education has significantly increased. The vast majority of students cannot afford the cost of a three- or four-year legal education, particularly those from out-of-state, without some financial assistance. My hope is that with this scholarship — and others I hope to endow in the future — many students will be able to choose the IU Maurer School of Law with less consideration of its tuition cost.
Q. Not only are you one of the Law School’s top financial contributors, you are one of its top donors of time as well. How do you balance your extremely busy schedule with volunteering on the Board of Visitors and participating in events like FutureFirm 1.0, where participants envisioned the ideal law firm of the future? A. It’s a pleasure to participate and rejuvenating to be back on the Bloomington campus. I welcome the variety of activities. Plus, I learn so much from each event or meeting. For example, at FutureFirm, I changed the way I think about legal services, especially as a corporate executive who authorizes a lot of spending on legal fees. Media businesses are legal-intensive because of the nature of intellectual property rights and copyrights that must be defended. FutureFirm was all about creativity, and I received as much out of it as I put in. It was a lot of fun.
“I’m very proud of the School, and I’m extremely appreciative of the skills that I gained there and how they’ve given me a competitive advantage in my business career.” — Scott Flanders In addition to that, the perspective of having different issues to address beyond my day-to-day responsibilities augments my skills as a corporate executive and makes me more informed about the School’s goals and how I might help achieve them. In my talks with Lauren, she shares the challenges she faces with her team, the legislature, faculty recruiting, and maintaining our School’s diversity. Those are the types of strategic issues she sounds off on and that I try to help with. I do feel I often get more than I give, but I hope I add some value to the conversation too! Q. Your career path can serve as a model for those students who may not follow the traditional route of going straight from law school to a job with an established law firm. You co-founded an e-commerce company, served as the head of Columbia House, and now are the CEO of one of America’s most recognizable brands in Playboy Enterprises, Inc. How did Indiana Law prepare you for the successful career you’ve had, and what lessons can be drawn from the path you’ve taken?
A. My Indiana Law education makes me feel that in every meeting I go into I am intellectually fully empowered to handle whatever is thrown at me. There is no interaction you have in business that’s more intense than law school. Having gone through the intellectual boot camp of law school makes every business situation unintimidating, and that’s one hell of an advantage. Almost every business decision I make has to be documented by a contract of some sort. That’s just what IP and copyright businesses do. It’s rare for an agreement to end up in litigation, but when it does happen, what’s important is reaching a basic meeting of the minds. Understanding the issues viscerally, as opposed to just understanding them technically, comes out of the rigor of a three-year legal education. When you think about a legal education, it has such a broad value. My sense is that business is about human interaction. It’s about moving people and getting them to make decisions that benefit you both. I think a legal education prepares a person to be able to achieve that true win-win negotiation in business arrangements. I never expected to practice law when I went to law school. I went into it with a view that being in a legal library working to one day be part of a firm just wouldn’t be fulfilling for me. It’s not what I had in mind. I hope more of our graduates can take a nontraditional approach to their careers. They can distinguish themselves. When you’re competing to get into a top law firm, you’re competing against other top students from across the country. But in the business world, you’ve got such an advantage with a legal education. Life is a bit easier. Q. Do you have any advice for alumni who are looking to get more involved with the School? What can they do to help the School right now? A. We need more graduates from the ’80s and ’90s to get involved. We have a seasoned Board of Visitors which can bring a certain cachet. But as one of the younger members at age 52, we need a younger group to start getting more active, too. We have a very committed group of alumni and Board of Visitors and we need grads from the ’80s and ’90s to start stepping up. There is room for their ideas and contributions. Many feel that they are still too busy building their careers at this point in their lives, but I think they’re missing out on how much they can get if they get involved. I think many would find it the perfect outlet. Plus, the School always benefits from the time and expertise of alumni at various stages in their careers. Personally, I’d love to talk to our alumni to figure out how they can help get involved. E-mail me at sflanders@ playboy.com, and we’ll get something together.

Geoffrey Slaughter, JD’89 Partner, Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP
Living in Indianapolis has its advantages for Geoffrey Slaughter. When it comes to supporting the Law School, Slaughter is just an hour away from attending a Board of Visitors meeting or volunteering to serve as a Moot Court judge. “I learned many years ago how much I get back from giving to the Law School,” Slaughter said. “Whether it’s coming down for a football weekend and stopping by the School to talk with students for 15 minutes or judging Moot Court, the students always appreciate hearing from alums who are practicing lawyers.” Slaughter earned his JD in 1989, spent two years in a federal judicial clerkship in South Bend, Ind., then moved to Chicago for a job with a large law firm. At the same time, former Dean Fred Aman was seeking out alumni from outside the Bloomington and Indianapolis regions to get more involved with the School. Slaughter jumped at the opportunity, but fate made things even easier when he accepted a position as counsel to the Indiana attorney general. What was supposed to be a year or two in Indianapolis has become a permanent home for Slaughter and his wife, Julie, also a lawyer. Now a partner at Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, Slaughter is able to return to Bloomington whenever he is needed. Time isn’t Slaughter’s only gift to the School; he has been active in fundraising over the last decade. “It’s important to me to give back to the Law School, which afforded me with so many opportunities,” Slaughter said. “That’s part of the culture I was raised in. The Law School and Indiana University are very important to Julie and me.” Slaughter said this is a crucial time for the School. With the hiring of exceptional new faculty, a successful capital campaign, and a surge in the recent U.S. News & World Report rankings, he said the School can solidify its reputation as one of the top public law schools in the nation. “There’s no question we’re at a crossroads right now,” he said. “Dean Robel’s terrific leadership has put us on the threshold of some amazing opportunities for the School. We’re already doing some very exciting things, and further goals are within our reach.” Slaughter encourages alumni to consider getting involved with the School in one capacity or another, even if it’s simply keeping an ear to the ground for possible job opportunities for current students or recent graduates. As current students search for career options in a challenging economy, even a tip in the right direction could pay huge dividends. “It’s never too late to get involved,” Slaughter said. “Alumni involvement can be modest or ambitious. Of course, money always helps. We’ve had some incredible gifts from the Lilly Endowment and the Maurer family, but we also have alumni who have never written a check for any amount. Yet even modest participation from those who haven’t given before can truly add up.” 20

Lilly Endowment gift brings five exceptional scholars to Indiana Law Five new faculty members have joined Indiana Law’s teaching ranks, strengthening the School’s already outstanding faculty. The Lilly Endowment’s $25 million grant to the Law School in December 2007 was designated for faculty retention and the recruitment of top scholars. From established researchers to up-and-coming legal academics, the Lilly Endowment’s exceptional gift is being put into action with the addition of new faculty. All five began their teaching duties this fall. An associate professor, Brian Broughman came to Indiana Law from University of California– Berkeley, where he had been a visiting assistant professor. Broughman’s scholarship focuses on corporate governance, financial contracting, and law and social norms. He recently presented a new research project (co-authored with Jesse Fried, professor of law at the University of California–Berkeley) titled “Do Venture Capitalists Use Inside Financing to Dilute Founders?” at the Midwest Law and Economics Association conference.
Mark Janis, JD’89, professor and Ira C. Batman Faculty Fellow, is spearheading the Law School’s emerging intellectual property program. He is excited about recruiting top students interested in pursuing legal careers in IP fields and expanding programs in both patent and trademark/copyright law. He recently participated in a panel discussion on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in In re Bilski.
Within a few days of moving to Bloomington, Jayanth Krishnan, the Charles L. Whistler Faculty Fellow, was on a plane to India, where the Law School announced its new Center on the Global Legal Profession. A noted scholar on globalization and the law, Krishnan is working closely with Professor William Henderson and others to secure the Law School’s position as a leader in the study of the global legal profession. He presented “Comparative Legal Methodologies in India” at the American Society of Comparative Law Meeting in October.
A former Bristow Fellow in the solicitor general’s office and clerk for Judge Michael McConnell of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, Ryan Scott is teaching in the areas of criminal law and procedure and federal jurisdiction. His expertise on federal sentencing guidelines was recently sought by The Wall Street Journal for an extensive article on variations in criminal sentences by federal judges.
A former visiting assistant professor at Brooklyn Law School, Deborah Widiss has bolstered the Law School’s offerings in family law, the course she is teaching this fall semester. Her work has been published by Notre Dame, Florida State, and the Harvard Journal of Law & Gender. Earlier this year, Widiss was a winner of the Association of American Law Schools’ annual scholarly papers competition, which recognizes excellent scholarship by junior faculty. She recently participated in a panel discussion at the Law School on marriage and employment rights.
Friends, Faculty, Staff, and Students Friends, faculty, staff, and students have a close bond to the School. The IU Maurer School of Law especially appreciates their support. Dean’s Circle Benefactors

Kimberling: This is the time to start giving
In his home state of California, John F. “Jack” Kimberling has seen a trend that he believes will spread eastward before too long. The University of California system increased student fees by 32 percent in late November, giving many students doubts about their ability to afford higher education. As this trend continues, higher education will rely more than ever on private support
his name, served as national co-chair for IU’s endowment campaign in the 1980’s, was a steering committee member of the Campaign for Indiana, and has served as a visiting law professor and member of the Law School’s Board of Visitors. He was honored with the Distinguished Alumni Service Award from the university in 2001, the highest honor an alumnus can receive.
“It used to be, in the golden days, a university was principally funded by the state and the legislature,” Kimberling, JD’50, said recently from his home in Palm Springs. “That’s no longer true. As more and more support has dwindled from the state, we have to depend more and more on private giving. That’s why it’s so important for the Law School to have private funding sources.”
Kimberling’s longtime involvement with the Law School has reinforced his belief that it is essential to give back to the School that helped start him on a lifelong journey of success. “So many times we go through life, we pay off our mortgage, we educate our children, and now we’re in a position where we can do things for others,” Kimberling said. “We can do things for the Law School, for society, for our communities. It means so much to me to give back to a place that is doing so much good for the profession. What’s happening here in California is going to happen in Indiana. There will be a shortage of state funds, and IU and the Law School are going to be facing more of a shortage of money from the state and depending more on private giving. This is the time to start giving.”
Kimberling is one of the top private donors to the Law School. After an extremely successful career in Los Angeles — The American Lawyer once called him one of the top trial lawyers in the country — Kimberling endowed a chair in
alumni don’t realize they can include gifts to the Law School as part of their estate planning. Kimberling himself has established several charitable trusts to benefit the School. By naming the Law School as a beneficiary in a will, trust, or insurance policy, donors can secure their current financial needs while assisting the Law School in the future. Dean Regenovich, assistant dean for advancement, said his office can help guide donors through the various options available to them. Kimberling encouraged alumni to think about the future and consider the Law School in their plans. “It’s important for alumni and others to give some thought to their estate planning and to gifts they give out of their estates,” he said. “A lot of us don’t give a thought to that, so the Heritage Society can be an important vehicle to achieving that goal. We often go about our lives and careers as lawyers, and we forget how important the Law School has been to us. The School has enabled us to have careers and lives that have been successful. We cannot forget how much the Law School gave to us. It’s important to give back, and these planned gifts we can make are an easy way.”
Part of Kimberling’s long-term view of the School’s future includes his leadership in planned giving. He said many

Heritage Society Established in 1991 to provide a framework for lasting bequests and to foster future legal education, the Heritage Society honors friends and alumni who invest in the IU Maurer School of Law through deferred gifts. These gifts provide funds for Law School projects, or they endow chairs, professorships, or scholarships. The generosity of Heritage Society members ensures that the School of Law can continue to offer the highest quality legal education. Membership in the Heritage Society is open to all who make or have made a planned or deferred gift commitment to the Law School. This is accomplished by naming the IU Maurer School of Law as a beneficiary through a bequest in a will, charitable remainder unitrust or annuity trust, pooled income fund, charitable gift annuity, life insurance, retirement plan, or other life-income arrangements. Members of the Heritage Society are automatically included in the IU Foundation’s planned giving society, the Arbutus Society. We are pleased to recognize and thank the members of the Heritage Society:

Giving to the Fund for Excellence Annual giving is vital to the Indiana University Maurer School of Law’s mission to provide excellence in legal education. The Fund for Excellence — our annual giving program — provides the dean with the flexibility to enhance academic and co-curricular programs that make the crucial difference between an adequate education and a truly excellent one.
Student Programs Law students benefit directly from your gift to the Fund for Excellence, which supports all of the Law School’s student services and programs beyond classroom education. Contributions to the Fund for Excellence go toward scholarships; three law journals; 25 student organizations; five centers; community advocacy programs; the Law Library; and the offices of Career and Professional Development, Admissions, and Student Affairs. These programs, to name only a few, are essential in preparing our students to serve the profession and their communities according to the highest standards.
Alumni Support Every gift to the Fund for Excellence, at any level, influences the School’s successes. Strong evidence of alumni support is important to the School’s ability to leverage funding from other sources. Corporations, foundations, and potential major donors frequently use alumni participation rates (i.e., how many alumni give, not the total amount of the gifts) when deciding whether to award grants or make significant gifts. Matching gifts from employers also increase dollars raised for the Fund for Excellence.
Reputation The Fund for Excellence supports mission-critical programs that greatly improve the Law School’s reputation. As the School’s reputation increases, so does the value of your degree. For more information, please contact Lisa Hosey, Director of Annual Giving & Stewardship, at (812) 855-9953 or via e-mail at email@example.com.

Six inducted into Academy of Law Alumni Fellows Six alumni were inducted into the Law School’s Academy of Law Alumni Fellows in April. They were recognized for their dedication to the highest standards of the legal profession and their extraordinary personal achievements. From the posthumous induction of the School’s first African-American graduate to a lawyer whose persistence and dedication led to the overturned conviction of an accused murderer, the 2009 ALAF recipients have made a lasting impression on the Law School community and the lives of others.
Samuel S. Dargan, LLB’09 (posthumously) The first African-American graduate of the Law School, Dargan began working for the Indiana Law Library after earning his degree. He became curator of the Law Library in 1924, a position he held until retiring in 1948. Known as the “father” of the Law School, Dargan would regularly give advice and his own money to students in need, but his generosity extended to the entire IU and Bloomington communities. At a time when minority students were not permitted to live in university housing, Dargan operated “Dargan’s House,” the first private dormitory for AfricanAmerican students at IU. He later bought other properties to offer housing options to minority students. Upon his death in 1954, the Indy Times ran an editorial saluting Dargan’s achievements. “The memory of Mr. Dargan,” the editorial said, “will burn long in the minds of Indiana’s law graduates.”
Francina A. Dlouhy, JD’77
Robert A. Long, JD’71
A partner at Baker & Daniels, Dlouhy is considered one of the leading tax lawyers in America. She has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America for more than 20 years, named an Indiana Super Lawyer, and is a recipient of the state’s highest civilian honor — the Sagamore of the Wabash. “I’m grateful for this recognition,” Dlouhy said. “This induction is very meaningful to me, because there is not a day that goes by where I don’t use something I learned at this Law School.” Dlouhy has been honored twice by the Indianapolis YWCA with its “Salute to Women of Achievement” award, received the Antoinette Dakin Leach Award from the Indiana Bar Association and named a distinguished fellow by the Indianapolis Bar Foundation.
Long spent his entire career with Latham & Watkins LLP in Los Angeles, where he served as managing partner from 1992 to 1997 and held a variety of management roles prior to that time. Long represented many of the nation’s leading aerospace and computer companies as a business litigator and trial lawyer, leading to his 1999 election to the American College of Trial Lawyers. His pro bono work for Mario Rocha, a then 16-year-old convicted of murder, led to an overturned conviction in 2008. The eight-year fight to secure Rocha’s freedom was the subject of a documentary film, Mario’s Story. Long said he was humbled to be inducted into the ALAF. “My experience at the Law School transformed my life in terms of what I’ve been able to achieve professionally and who I am today,” he said.
Arthur M. Lotz, JD’65
Lloyd H. Milliken Jr., JD’60
Milton R. Stewart, JD’71
Lotz graduated from Indiana Law in 1965 after serving 10 years in the U.S. Air Force. After working in the IU Treasurer’s office and for the IU Alumni Association, Lotz joined the Law School as assistant dean for placement and bar relations in 1978. He became the assistant dean for budget administration, bar relations, and development in 1980, the position he held until he retired in 1996. Under Lotz’s direction, the School’s annual fund rose from less than $50,000 per year when he started the job to more than $800,000 per year in 1996. He was instrumental in securing support and funding for major renovations to the Law School during the 1980’s. The School’s Office of Alumni and Development is named in his honor.
Milliken is nationally renowned for his work as a trial lawyer and leader of the defense bar. His practice has focused primarily on representing defendants in product liability cases. He gained national recognition for his service as Indiana counsel for General Motors in the litigation against NBC arising out of the Dateline program that misrepresented the effect of high-speed crashes involving GM trucks. He has been inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers and was named the Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana’s Defense Lawyer of the Year in 1993. In 2007, Milliken was elected the inaugural president of the National Foundation for Judicial Excellence and received the Defense Research Institute’s Louis B. Potter Lifetime Professional Services Award. He has spent his entire career with Locke Reynolds, which recently merged with Frost Brown Todd.
Stewart settled at the firm of Davis Wright Tremaine in Portland, Ore., after serving in the U.S. Army. He served for 13 years on the Firm Management (Executive) Committee and currently serves as its client relations partner. Stewart’s practice has focused on structuring merger and acquisition transactions, reorganizations, and management buyouts. He is the author of International Joint Ventures: A Practicum for the Journal of the Association of Corporate Counsel, and co-authored Mergers & Acquisition Law 2007 and Winning Legal Strategies for Mergers & Acquisitions. Stewart and his wife, Judi, regularly host a reception at the IU Art Museum to encourage students, faculty, and staff members to explore the extensive art collection on the Bloomington campus. “Virtually everything I am and virtually everything I’ve achieved I owe to this university and to the three years I spent at the Law School,” Stewart said. “I am eternally grateful for what you have given me.”
Hunt and Kassing awarded President’s Medals V. William Hunt, JD’69, chairman and owner of Hunt Capital Partners LLC, and Robert Kassing, JD’64, partner at Bose McKinney & Evans LLP, were honored by the IU Foundation for their exceptional dedication to fundraising on behalf of the university and the Law School. IU Foundation President and CEO Gene Tempel presented the two with President’s Medals at the April ALAF ceremony, lauding their achievements to ensuring the university and the Law School remain top-level institutions that are affordable to all. “We have a better university and a better Law School because of Bill Hunt and Bob Kassing,” Tempel said. “The Law School will be forever different because of their remarkable work.”

Distinguished Service Award winners take many paths to fulfilling service The recipients of the 2009 Distinguished Service Awards all have different backgrounds, successes, and stories. They are united by the IU Maurer School of Law and their dedication to making a difference in both the School and their communities. “They go above and beyond in every single way possible, and they set the standards for what we expect our students to do,” Dean Lauren Robel said. This year’s recipients were honored on Sept. 25 at a luncheon in the Indiana Memorial Union’s Alumni Hall.
Lisa McKinney Goldner, JD’92
Fred J. Logan Jr., JD’77
Lisa McKinney Goldner’s colleagues have described her service to the Indianapolis community and the Law School as “doing well by doing good.” Goldner has been a mainstay on the School’s Alumni Board since 1996. Robel praised Goldner’s “transformative leadership” as board president in 2007. Under Goldner’s leadership, the Alumni Board organized committees to increase alumni involvement in recruiting top students as well as mentoring them in their quest to find jobs. A partner at Bose McKinney & Evans, Goldner devotes countless hours to the Indianapolis community, volunteering with the American Cancer Society and through the McKinney Family Foundation. “My experiences serving nonprofits have enabled me to serve the community and to follow my passions for making others’ lives better,” she said. Goldner said she is grateful to the Law School for the education she received. “The Law School has played such an incredible and important part of shaping my life,” she said. “My professors challenged me to think outside of the box and allowed me to follow my mission and dreams.”
Though he has called Johnson County, Kan., home for the last three decades, Fred J. Logan Jr. will always be a Hoosier at heart. After graduating from Indiana Law in 1977, Logan worked as a law clerk in Bedford, Ind., making the daily commute from Bloomington. He still has a photo from his Lawrence County days tacked to his office wall. “There is a lot of Indiana in me, and there’s a lot of this Law School that I carry with me in my heart every day,” Logan said. After opening a law firm with his brother, Scott, Logan became, at that time, the youngest state leader of a major political party in the United States. He has since taken on leadership roles with St. Luke’s South Hospital, the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City, and United Community Services. Logan said he recognizes the duties and responsibilities that come with being a lawyer. “When we practice law, we are given a privilege. It is truly a noble calling,” he said. “When we can add public service to our mission, we have the privilege of making our communities better by doing our part to fill in the blanks.” For his public service efforts in Kansas, Logan was named Johnson Countian of the Year in 2008. “Fred’s life and career exemplify what one lawyer can do to shape an entire community,” Robel said.
Edward C. King, JD’64
Arthur A. Lopez, JD’83
From Detroit to Micronesia, Edward C. King pursued a legal career that has taken him all over the world. After six years serving as a corporate lawyer, King and his wife, Joan, decided they could achieve more good by doing more good. “Joan said we could live a more simple life and do more good and help more people,” King said. “Life as a corporate attorney just seemed wrong to us at the time.” So, he decided to dedicate his time to helping those with little power or wealth find a voice for their legal needs. After serving as director of the Center for Urban Law and Housing at the University of Detroit Law School, King and his family moved to Micronesia, where he became chief of litigation for Micronesian Legal Services. King returned to the United States to direct the National Senior Citizens Law Center (NSCLC), which advocates for and promotes the independence and well-being of low-income elderly and disabled Americans. In 1980, King was asked to become the first chief justice of the now self-governing Federated States of Micronesia. He held that position for 12 years then served as a justice in two other Pacific Island jurisdictions and as a Federal Magistrate Judge for the U.S. District Court for Hawaii. King returned to the NSCLC in 2002, where he continued his advocacy for the elderly and disabled before retiring in 2007.
Arthur A. Lopez has achieved phenomenal success in his professional life. He has served as director of civil rights for the Federal Transit Administration and special counsel to former President Clinton. But, he takes the most pride in helping at-risk youth discover their potential through swimming. In 2006, Lopez founded Nadar Por Vida. Its English translation — Swimming for Life — can be interpreted in many ways. “So many people want to help at-risk kids succeed. We now have a program that can help them achieve that,” Lopez said. By holding practices on weekend nights, swimmers in the program have an outlet from the dangers on the street. A latecomer to the Law School — Lopez was accepted at age 29 — he has wasted no time helping the youth of Washington, D.C., or his alma mater. Despite a busy career as special assistant to the deputy director of the Office of Agency Programs in the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, Lopez was a founding member and chair of Indiana Law’s Latino Alumni Advisory Board. Robel said Lopez’s commitment to the School and to bettering his community is “truly inspiring.”

Letter from the Alumni Board President Brian Williams
obtaining his law degree, Dunfee was a pilot in the U.S. Air Force for three years. He practiced law for 23 years as a partner at Barnes and Thornburg in the firm’s South Bend, Ind., office. Before moving to Santa Fe in 2006, he enjoyed retirement on Kiawah Island, S.C. Among his many interests were environmental issues, outdoor activities, military history, and music.
Your Law School needs YOU now! Visualize Dean Lauren Robel dressed as Uncle Sam pointing her finger at YOU in a similar fashion as the iconic government recruiting poster. You ask, “And why does my Law School need me?” Because, as it was put at the recent Indiana Law Alumni Summit, there is a “global war on legal jobs.” According to the School’s Office of Career & Professional Development, reports indicate that in the past 18 months more than 25,000 legal jobs have been lost across the United States. This is why your Law School needs you now! The Law School needs each and every alumnus who reads these words to provide Michael Keller (mikeller@indiana. edu), assistant dean for OCPD, at least one employment lead for the current law graduates. These employment leads could be with local state court judges or magistrates, they could be with local banks or with legal aid organizations, they could be with prosecutor or criminal defense offices, or they could simply be for hourly contract work. Leads could be with your own or with other law offices.
I hope you get the idea. Your Law School and its graduates are looking for any lead for legal jobs. They will even accept leads for non-paying legal jobs.
In February, Oscar C. Ventanilla Jr., LLM’62, a tax consultant at Philippine Airlines Inc., was selected to receive the Indiana University Alumni Association President’s Award, the IUAA’s highest recognition awarded exclusively to alumni volunteers. Ventanilla, who serves as president of the Philippine Chapter of the IUAA, received the award on June 6, 2009, at the International Conference and Reunion in Seoul, Korea.
Next you ask, “And why is this important to me or the School?” First and foremost, it is the right thing to do. Each of us wanted our first legal job and so do the students today. Secondly, our Law School is evaluated each year on the number of graduates employed nine months after graduation. To be a highly regarded — and ranked — Law School, our graduates must be employed. If our alumni funnel employment leads to OCPD, they will follow up. Please help our Law School win this “global war on legal jobs.” Picture Dean Robel pointing at you. Send those employment leads today.

Dorfman featured in Discovery Channel documentary On July 30, Don Dorfman, JD’57, was featured on Investigation Discovery channel’s Wicked Attraction series, which profiles behind-the-scenes investigations into murder cases and high-profile serial killers. “A Mother’s Love” details the 45-year-old case of a mother who was accused of shooting her husband to death and, years later, murdering her two daughters. In 1964, Dorfman was a young deputy district attorney assigned to prosecute Theresa Sanders, who shot her husband, Clifford, to death. She confessed the crime to her neighbor, who happened to be the sheriff’s wife. In addition, several witnesses had allegedly heard her threaten to kill her husband during their marriage. “It was a standard murder case,” Dorfman said. But the case took an unexpected turn when Sanders claimed she was abused and shot her husband in self-defense. The judge decided not to allow the corroborating evidence or the confession to go to jury. “She was not only acquitted, but the jury hugged her,” Dorfman said. Theresa Knorr (nee Sanders) later asked Dorfman to represent her in divorce proceedings from her second husband. “She said she knew that if she was ever in trouble she wanted me to fight on her side. I declined,” he recalled. Many years later, he received a phone call from one of Knorr’s sons. “He said that his mother wanted me to represent her, but not to do it because she had murdered two of her daughters by shooting one and setting her on fire and locking the other in a closet and leaving her there to die,” said Dorfman, who did not represent her. Knorr initially pleaded not guilty to the murders. But, after learning one of her sons had agreed to testify against her, she entered guilty pleas to both crimes and was sentenced to two consecutive life terms in prison.

Law School honors Professor John Scanlan For more than 20 years, Professor John Scanlan has driven 400 miles round trip, from South Bend to Bloomington, to teach at IU. After a distinguished career in which he’s been recognized for his extraordinary work on immigration law, Scanlan retired from teaching this spring. Colleagues, family, and friends gathered in the Indiana Memorial Union on May 6 to commemorate Scanlan’s retirement. “There are not many people who would put up with 20 years of commuting 400 miles a week, but John has never been like everyone else,” said Professor Alex Tanford. “The mix of personal and academic interests has fueled his long fascination with immigration, especially how we respond to the tired, poor, and hungry masses of disadvantaged immigrants yearning to breathe American air. From the Irish in the 19th century to Haitians and Mexicans in the 20th, John has written, taught, and cared about the plight of poor immigrants coming to this country. He also practices what he teaches and has handled a number of immigration cases in Chicago.” Scanlan joined Indiana Law in 1984 after teaching for several years at Notre Dame. Though he left Notre Dame to head the Law and Sports Center at the Law School, he never left South
Bend. That dedication, colleagues said, was just one example of what made Scanlan such a special instructor. “John has been so passionate about teaching students to write well, political theory, and how we treat immigrants and refugees,” Dean Lauren Robel said. “For John, he has always been about ideas and expressing them really, really well.” Scanlan’s passion for legal writing extended not just to the students in his classroom, but to his peers as well. Professor Kevin Brown recalled bringing an early draft of one of his first scholarly publications to Scanlan for advice. “You’ve been as instrumental in my legal scholarship as anyone in the legal academy,” Brown said. After comments from fellow faculty members, Scanlan’s wife, Margaret, unveiled her husband’s portrait that now hangs on the wall of a classroom in the Law School. “When I came here in 1984, I wasn’t really sure where my career was going,” Scanlan said. “One of the things I appreciate about this School is what a challenging and welcoming environment it is. My experience teaching here was wonderful. It’s been amazing, some of the things I’ve seen here. It’s been a true joy, and I look forward to seeing you all again.” 63
