On December 5, 1842, Professor David McDonald gave his first lecture to the class of the new Law Department at Indiana University. McDonald was carrying out the Board of Trustees’ directive to create a school “inferior to none west of the Mountains.”

It was the fourth professor of law who finally said yes. The Indiana University administration had already asked three before David McDonald took the job in the summer of 1842. After a bit of negotiation — McDonald wanted the academic term to be three months so he could remain a circuit judge — McDonald became the first leader of the Maurer School of Law. The school has grown immensely since then, in both size and stature. From the very first lecture in University Chapel to the dedication of Lowell E. Baier Hall, the Law School has been educating future lawyers, senators, judges, civil servants, entrepreneurs, and teachers for 175 years. We look back at the events that have shaped the Law School for nearly two centuries.


IU first conceives of a Law Department.


David McDonald hired as school’s first faculty member, gives first

lecture on Dec. 5. No record of how many students were in initial class.

On announcing the new Law Department in 1842, IU said the school

“shall be inferior to none west of the mountains; one in which the

student will be so trained, that he shall never, in the attorney, forget

the scholar, and the gentleman.”


University Chapel, site of the first Law Department lecture.


Five become Law School’s first graduates.


IU experiences financial difficulties, and discontinues McDonald’s

salary as a result. The university asks him to remain on, paying him in

student fees, a room, and “adequate firewood.”

Trustees, elected dean. Applicants aren’t bound by the requirements

for admission to the university. Prospective students must “be at least

18 years of age, and must pass an examination that shall test the

applicant’s ability to write and speak good English and his possession

of a fair knowledge of the Common School branches.” The cost of

attending is $12.50 per term. Diplomas are an additional $5.


Initially called the Law Department, the name is formally changed to

the Indiana University School of Law. Classes are held on the second

floor of Library Hall (which would be renamed Maxwell Hall).

Preparations for a prestigious centennial celebration begin. Wendell

Willkie, Paul McNutt, and Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes are all

invited to speak at the 1942 gala. But the attack on Pearl Harbor forced

the postponement of the gala. With a focus on wartime efforts and a

drastic reduction in the student population (a mere 23 students were

enrolled in 1943-44), plans for the historic event eventually fall

through. A small ceremony is held in 1944 to commemorate the school’s

first 100 years. Dean Gavit takes a leave of absence to serve on the

The award was established in 1997 to recognize graduates who have distinguished themselves in service to their communities and the school in ways far exceeding traditional business, professional, and civic duties. Through their hard work, passion, and accomplishments, these alumni define Indiana Law’s ideals for community service and serve as role models for our Law School and the greater community. Nominations will be accepted through June 1, 2017. To view a list of past honorees, to submit a nomination, or for more information, visit law.indiana.edu/alumni/advisory-boards.

Mackey is a partner at Barnes & Thornburg LLP in Indianapolis, where he has led the growth of the firm’s nationwide white collar and investigations practice group since 1998. Previously, he was a federal criminal prosecutor whose service included the investigation and prosecution of crimes arising from the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City and the deaths of 168 persons. After a total of six months of courtroom proceedings, he won separate jury trial convictions against the two charged bombing conspirators. For his service, Mackey received the highest achievement awards from the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Rush is chief justice of the State of Indiana, the first woman to hold that position, and only the second woman to have been named to the state’s highest court.

fariss retirement celebration recognizes 40 years of service to law library The Indiana Law community gathered on January 27 to congratulate

Fariss’ guiding principle as a librarian and Law School faculty member has always been a profound service orientation, which has directly led to so many remarkable contributions. She has been responsible for expansion of the library’s teaching mission, including greater involvement in the first-year Legal Research and Writing program, as well as paving the way for the introduction of the Advanced Legal Research class. She has tirelessly sought to ensure the library remains at the cutting edge of technology, including one of her crowning achievements: the library’s digital repository, which provides open access to the Law School’s scholarship, publications, and history. In addition to the lasting contribution Fariss has made to the Jerome Hall Law Library, her legacy is further cemented by her role in educating and mentoring new law librarians. Continuing the course first established by Pauwels, Fariss and associate director Keith Buckley, ’89, have taught the Legal Bibliography class offered by the Department of Information and Library Science to dozens of aspiring law librarians since 1985. The vast majority of their students have gone on to successful careers in law librarianship, many of them at some of the nation’s finest law libraries. At the annual meeting of the American Association of Law Libraries, an Indiana University reception hosts former students who return year after year, eager to share their success stories and to acknowledge Fariss’ role in helping guide their careers.

Linda Fariss, ’88, on her retirement as director of the Jerome Hall Law Library. Fariss dedicated her entire professional career to the library, which she helped establish as one of the finest and most service-oriented law libraries in the country. In her progression from head of public services to associate director and finally to director of the Law Library and senior lecturer in law, she spearheaded dramatic growth in the Law Library’s physical facilities, staff, collections, and, most critically, services to Law School faculty, students, and alumni, as well as the entire Indiana University community and beyond. After completing an education degree at IU and working the night shift at the Main (now Wells) Library, Fariss applied for the newly created position of circulation supervisor at the Law Library in 1976. She transformed a haphazard operation run by students who stuffed circulation records in a drawer into a model of organization and efficiency. Upon completion of her Master of Library Science degree from IU in 1980, Fariss was appointed public services librarian. It quickly became apparent that in addition to her skills as a reference librarian, she had an aptitude for administration, and she was named the library’s first associate director in 1983. While working full-time, she earned her JD magna cum laude in 1988 and was inducted into the Order of the Coif. Fariss credits her colleagues who encouraged her along the way, in particular her mentor, the late Colleen Pauwels, ’86, who served as library director from 1983 until her retirement in 2011. Following Pauwels’ retirement, Fariss served briefly as interim director before being named permanent director of the library in 2012.

Fariss with George P. Smith, II, ’64

Fariss is looking forward to traveling with her husband, Jim, and daughter, Katie (an IU nursing student) in the upcoming months. She may even take up one of those hobbies she’s heard so much about but has never had the time to pursue. “Linda’s retirement brings with it the end of an era for the Jerome Hall Law Library,” said Dean Parrish. “Fortunately, her longtime protégé Keith Buckley has been appointed interim director, and will ensure that her many contributions will endure. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to have worked with Linda wish her much happiness in her retirement.” — Keith Buckley

INDIANA JOURNAL OF LAW AND SOCIAL EQUALITY When Katherine Fay, ’14, introduced Logan to the Indiana Journal of Law and Social Equality at Admitted Students Day in 2014, she “knew it was the journal I wanted to be involved in.” “I’ve always been interested in issues of social equality,” Logan said. “I was able to get on the journal and had the fortune of meeting the executive team and leaders like Jazzmin Lewis, ’16. To see how invested they were in the journal was amazing.”

Dean Frank Motley. The two connected, and a visit to campus convinced Dawson he had found his home. “Indiana Law just made sense,” he said, after discovering the school’s program on environmental law and the potential for a joint degree. “Professors like Jim Barnes, Fred Aman, and Bill Weeks have done everything they could’ve done to mold me into the best environmental lawyer I could be.” Dawson will have an opportunity to further hone those skills when he goes to work for the US Department of Justice’s Environmental Resource Division later this year. Leading the IJGLS is something Dawson is particularly proud of. The journal is celebrating its 25th birthday in 2017. So is Dawson. “That means something to me,” he said. “I’m the first African American editor-in-chief of the IJGLS. The first year they published was the year I was born. That’s special.” To commemorate the journal’s 25th anniversary, a global symposium was held in Bloomington on March 23-24, featuring some of the nation’s premier authorities on global legal studies. Rather than look back at the past 25 years, the symposium focused on the next quarter-century.

INDIANA LAW JOURNAL “My 1L Peer Group Advisor drove home the point to me, and everyone in our group, that if you were after the best opportunities as a law student, there was no better place than a journal or moot court experience,” said Xie. “Professor Pamela Foohey said it was the best way to read great scholarship and emphasized I’d be exposed to research I might not have otherwise read.” So after her 1L year, Xie was invited to join the Indiana Law Journal. She came to Indiana Law after earning an undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University, wanting to be closer to family in Cincinnati. Working on the journal has been an eye-opening experience into the world of production schedules, organizational management, and leadership.

defeated Andreas. Nearly 75 percent of the 2L class — 118 competitors in all — participated in this year’s competition, which focused on the balance between public safety and the right to speak freely. Competitors were tasked with determining whether a high school soccer player should have been suspended over a rap song that contained hostile language seemingly directed at the coach and school boosters. The case drew on Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District and Jaffee v. Redmond. A distinguished panel of judges presided over the final round: Hon. Philip P. Simon, Chief Judge, US District Court for the Northern District of Indiana; Judith E. Levy, US District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan; Hon. Jorge Luis Alonso, US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois; Dean Austen Parrish; and Professor Ryan Scott.

“What I’ve found particularly rewarding is the ability to make decisions while still getting input from my peers,” she said. “Balancing leadership with being open to others’ ideas is a critical skill I’ll use in my career.” Xie will join Ice Miller’s Indianapolis office after she graduates this spring, and is looking forward to staying connected with the Law School. Until then, there’s a major constitutional law symposium the ILJ is co-hosting with the Law School’s American Constitution Society chapter on April 14-15. Together with Prof. Dawn Johnsen, Xie and her colleagues will play host to some of the nation’s preeminent constitutional law scholars. As for the fact that she’s a part of history, Xie said she’s happy to be a part of something as special as the Indiana Law Journal. But even more so, she’s proud to be part of a bigger community that has welcomed her and others so warmly. “I never once thought I’d be part of a diverse milestone,” she said. “But I look back and see this is where our school is today and what people can achieve here — and what they’re expected to achieve here — it’s just a reflection of what this community is really like.”

Simon told the finalists they all did a magnificent job, making the judges’ decision extraordinarily difficult. “It’s just terrific to see the level of competence from you folks,” he said after the competition. “Five years from now, or a year from now, you’re going to be out there representing someone and it’s going to matter. Care about what you do, and do it like you did today, and your clients are going to come back to you.” Dean Parrish echoed those sentiments. “I thought you all did a wonderful job and it’s always so impressive to see these arguments,” he said. “I’m incredibly proud that you represent the school so well.”

Washington, DC program combines study with hands-on experience Indiana Law has a record of success in producing practice-ready lawyers, with the right balance of classroom training, professional development, and hands-on learning. One case in point: the school’s Semester Public Interest Program, which gives students the opportunity to work in Washington, DC while earning course credit and building their network. Sarah Thompson, ’17, was one of nine third-year students who participated in this year’s program. Following acceptance into the program, she secured a job in the office of Senator

Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), where she worked for his legal counsel, assisting with legislative matters and attending Judiciary Committee hearings. “I wanted to work on Capitol Hill, and I wanted a job with Indiana ties, so I was grateful to be accepted to work for Senator Donnelly,” Thompson explained. “He was great to work for — just as personable and honest with all of his staff as he is with his constituents.” She added that it was “surreal” to go to the office every day and work on issues she’d just heard about on the morning news. “Being in DC is its own experience. The institutional knowledge there is something you can’t explain,” she said. Thompson praised the Law School’s alumni for helping her make connections. “Washington is all about networking, and it turned out to be a lot easier than I’d thought,” she said. “Our alumni were so eager to help and easy to talk to. It’s part of the lawyer culture to help others, and that made networking fun.” She singled out Greg Castanias, ’90, and her mentors, Bruce Artim, ’82, and Ryan Weiss, ’14, as being especially helpful. Thompson and her classmates earned four hours’ credit during the semester, including a class called Lawyering in the Public Interest. Taught by Prof. Sarah Jane Hughes and Associate Librarian Jennifer Morgan, the course covered practical topics such as FOIA requests, legislative research, and other issues relevant to public service. “Professor Hughes seems to know everyone in Washington,” Thompson said. “I casually mentioned that I was interested in appellate advocacy, and she immediately put me in touch with George Patton.” Thompson found her time in Washington affirming and uplifting. “People told me that a semester in Washington would make me more cynical, but in fact I came away from it less cynical,” she said. “There’s more to legislation than meets the public eye, and Senator Donnelly takes his constituents seriously. It was encouraging to see mail, e-mails, and phone calls be given high priority.” A 2016 Sherman Minton Moot Court Competition finalist, Thompson will start work this summer in the Carmel, Ind., law firm of Densborn Blachly LLP. Although she has no immediate plans to get into politics, she is sure that public service will figure in her future, thanks to the DC program. “My experience in Washington taught me that no matter what I do in the long term, I will be forever involved in policy,” she concluded.

Students get a head start on spring semester with Wintersession

Steve Burns and Bill Hunt enjoying the dialogue during Wintersession

Though only in its second year, the Law School’s Wintersession program has proven to be an incredible success, with record participation by students and faculty. The four-day, intensive curriculum allowed students to choose from 10 courses focusing on practical skills. Students returned to Bloomington a week prior to the start of the spring semester to take the one-credit courses, provided at no cost. For the first time, a Wintersession course was offered specifically for our graduate students, who had the opportunity to study Islamic law and human rights with Trinity College (Dublin) Professor Neville Cox. Many alumni returned to serve as faculty members. Steve Burns, ’68, and Bill Hunt, ‘69, returned to teach The Lawyer as Business Executive, one of last year’s most popular courses. This year they brought in Michael S. Maurer, ’67, Glenn Scolnik, ’78, and Dave Greene, ’74, to speak to the class. Greta Cowart and Mike Asensio, both ’85, teamed up to teach Transactional Drafting: Anatomy of a Deal. They brought in James (Jim) Carlino, ’85, who taught a real estate and environmental component to the course, and John Seddelmeyer, ’74, who helped prepared course materials to enhance the class. Doris Pryor, ’03, led a course on Pre-Trial Litigation, and Jeff Thinnes, ’84, brought several prominent guests in via Skype for his course on ethics and compliance. The Hon. Nancy Vaidik and Hon. Elaine Brown, ’82, both of the Indiana Court of Appeals, immersed students in the world of depositions, utilizing role-play to help students enhance their communication skills. The Law School will host Wintersession again next January.

inspired by a school’s innovative work, steve burns makes a gift When he was chief executive officer of Wheaton Van Lines, Steve Burns, ’68, learned that it wasn’t a business degree, a law degree, or decades of experience that made a good leader. No, it was whether or not the person was trustworthy. “When I went into business, I met a lot of good leaders. And I met some who were, shall we say, a bit unscrupulous,” Burns said. “Ethics seemed to be a void. And in talking with others, it wasn’t necessarily how smart they were, it was whether or not you could trust them.” Inspired by the work of Prof. Bill Henderson and Indiana Law’s Legal Profession

“It is very rewarding to be a part of a gift process where a lawyer can identify a key theme of their success and happiness and help translate it into part of forward-looking law school curriculum,” Henderson said. “In the case of Steve Burns, the theme is ethics and integrity. This endowed professorship funding will enable us to build upon a foundation that Steve Burns helped us lay starting nearly a decade ago. I am very grateful for his friendship and support.” The Legal Profession course, which Henderson helped launch in 2009, teaches 1Ls the law of lawyering in context, by examining practice settings, law firm norms, and nondoctrinal skills that all successful lawyers need, such as judgment, project management, client relations, and teamwork. Students in the course work in teams on real-life, practice-related problems, which helps develop the important skill of working alongside colleagues. “That’s where I began hearing about what Bill was doing, and after sitting down with him, it was clear his passion for students and for the profession is unique,” Burns said. “Teaching ethics and professionalism is difficult to do in many respects, and I think that’s the reason so many other schools have shied away from it. I’m pleased to see my school taking a lead here.” The course is bolstered by the Career Choices series, where practitioners from a wide array of practice areas visit the school to discuss their career paths and life as an attorney. Beyond the 1L year, advanced students are able to participate in the Law School’s Wintersession program, a four-day intensive course taught by practitioners. Burns and Bill Hunt, ’69, have taught a business-related course for the past two years (see story on p. 34). “It’s such a unique course and the students love it,” Burns said. “They want to hear war stories, which Bill and I are happy to share. They show up on time, they participate, and when you get their evaluations at the end and see how much they learned, it’s a very rewarding experience.”

and Wintersession courses, Burns has given $1 million to the Law School to help support the teaching of critical skills such as ethics and professionalism.

In 2015, Burns contributed $100,000 to the Lauren K. Robel Scholarship, which will support high-achieving Indiana Law students.

The gift establishes the Stephen F. Burns Professorship on the Legal Profession, to be held by Henderson. “He’s the reason for this gift,” Burns said. “When I was in law school, we hardly had any courses like the Legal Professions course or Wintersession. Bill has the same passion I do — that there needs to be a greater curricular experience in terms of ethics and professional responsibilities.” Henderson said knowing that people — especially alumni — recognize the importance of ethical and professional training is heartening.

Service projects “a breath of fresh air” to 1L CivPro students Civil procedure has always been a staple of the first-year curriculum. But while most law students sit in a classroom and learn the ins and outs of pleadings and processes, Professor Victor Quintanilla’s CivPro students have begun an innovative component that puts them out into the real world, assisting real clients with real problems.

“The symposium was one of the most rewarding parts for the students,” Quintanilla said. “Having worldclass access-to-justice researchers and community partners gathered for the students who presented their outstanding proposals was magnificent.” Quintanilla credited the symposium’s breakout sessions with spurring even more ideas to help the five teams further their ambitions, which will continue through the fall as part of a project management course and within the Center for Law, Society, and Culture. Students have found the service learning projects to be a welcome respite from countless hours of theory. One said the project has been “a breath of fresh air, because we’re getting to do something that matters.” Jessica Beheydt, ’19, agreed. “This project was really helpful in getting first-year law students connected with the community and to get them into volunteering,” she said. “This was impactful for me personally, and I’m so excited to continue working with my group.” Subject to securing funding for their execution, these five projects are being developed:

From the creation of technology, to distributing easy-to-understand legal documents, to the development of a new restorative program centered on Title IX reforms at the Indiana University campus, the students pursued solutions to problems facing underserved members of local communities. After teams presented their proposals at the end of the fall semester, five projects were chosen for review by a distinguished panel of scholars at the Accessing Justice Symposium, hosted by the Law School in late February. The teams received feedback, and will continue working to develop their projects into sustainable solutions that could end up living beyond their time as Indiana Law students.

The program is a partnership between the Law School and the Southern Poverty Law Center and is named for the iconic civil rights leader Julian Bond, founder of the SPLC. The Lumina Law Scholars Program will offer one student a scholarship and formal mentoring program similar to the one offered to the Julian Bond Scholars. Upon completion of their first year of law school, the Lumina Law Scholar will be offered a paid summer clerkship at the Indianapolis-based Lumina Foundation. Students will work with Holiday Hart McKiernan, ’83, Lumina’s chief operating officer, executive vice president, and general counsel, on a variety of legal, governance, and policy issues related to nonprofit organizations and higher-education institutions. Lumina Law Scholars will also have the opportunity to earn a minor in education policy from IU’s highly ranked School of Education. Another program with Chapman and Cutler LLP gives students hands-on experience in the firm, followed by admission to the Law School and consideration for a full-time position. Students interested in careers in the global legal profession will be able to apply to the school’s Global Fellows Program in Brazil, China, and India. Each fellowship offers a scholarship of 50 percent to 100 percent of tuition and a $12,000 summer stipend, along with a semester at O.P. Jindal Global University, Delhi;

Before 1960 Sidney D. Eskenazi, ’53, along with his wife Lois, donated $15 million and 100 works on paper to the Indiana University Art Museum, the largest gift the university museum has received since its founding in 1941. The Eskenazis’ generosity is helping the museum undergo essential renovations and maintenance work. Additionally, the works on paper have found a new home at the museum — now known as the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art.
