LETTER FROM THE DEAN On a bright summer day, thousands of sunflowers in a field will turn their faces toward the sun. It's a stunning display of unity. Generations of KU Law alumni are similarly unified by their aspirations to make a difference in the lives of people in their communities. They turn toward challenges, solve problems, and step up when leadership is required. In this issue, we focus specifically on the many ways that KU Law and its students, faculty and graduates serve the Sunflower State. As the law school at the state’s flagship research university, we take seriously our obligation to give back to the citizens who have invested in us since our founding in 1878. Of the approximately 4,000 KU Law alumni who live in Kansas, roughly 13 percent have heeded the call to serve the state directly. They work as prosecutors, public defenders, legal services providers, faculty and administrators at public universities, lawmakers, judges, judicial clerks and research attorneys, lawyers at state agencies, city and county attorneys, and more. The governor of Kansas and a third of the state’s congressional delegation are KU Law grads. A dozen alumni serve Kansas on federal courts, including the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, and more than 75 grads decide cases for state appellate, trial and administrative courts. More statistics appear on the following pages, along with profiles of how five KU Law graduates transitioned from Green Hall to careers in public service. Juliann Morland DaVee, L’10, improves the health of needy Kansans by solving legal issues that contribute to physical and mental illness. Shane Bangerter, L’91, strives to make college more accessible and affordable for all Kansans through service on the Kansas Board of Regents. And Judge Patricia Macke Dick, L’81, seeks the best outcomes for Kansas children through her decisions on the Reno County District Court. As Jeff Mason, L’83, another graduate featured in this issue says, “Professors taught us that the practice of law was a profession of service. We were not just attorneys, we were people who were going to go out and serve the people of Kansas.” KU Law students begin their journey to service through participation in clinics and externships like the Kansas Supreme Court Research Clinic, featured on page 8. Student organizations contribute, too, through food drives and initiatives such as the Guardianship Assistance Program. Faculty members share their expertise freely with Kansas lawmakers, area media professionals, and the state bar and bench. There is more than we can cover in this issue, but these stories begin to paint a picture of the immeasurable ways that KU Law and Jayhawk lawyers strengthen the state of Kansas. Thank you for your service.

On the green KU Law hosts national legal writing conference
Robin Craig, William H. Leary Professor of Law at the University of Utah S. J. Quinney College of Law presents at the water law symposium as fellow panelists Amy Hardberger of St. Mary’s University and Uma Outka of KU Law and moderator John Head of KU Law follow along.
Symposium probes water quantity, quality issues Leading scholars and thinkers on water law and environmental law addressed critical issues facing water quantity and quality at the 2013 Kansas Law Review Symposium, “Waters of the United States: Adapting Law for Degradation and Drought.” Attendance reached capacity at the Nov. 1 symposium, where speakers from across the country discussed topics such as: conflicts between water and endangered species regulation; innovative proposals for decreasing agricultural water pollution; adaptive water law that considers both ecological and social conditions; water quality trading programs, ecosystem services markets providing financial incentives for environmental protection; legal responses to drought in Kansas; citizens’ initiatives; and the results of a federal water project

that studied how climate change, population growth, and economic growth will impact water uses and availability. “The goal of the symposium was to provide a forum for academic discussion of water issues on national, regional, and local levels, and to enrich the academic experience of students and practitioners interested in the area of water law,” said Kate Marples, symposium editor and third-year KU Law student. “We also hoped to provide the basis for innovative solutions to water issues in Kansas and nationally.” Scholarship associated with the symposium will be published in a spring 2014 issue of the Kansas Law Review. The symposium was co-sponsored by the Kansas Water Congress, KU Environmental Law Society, Stevens & Brand LLP, Coca-Cola and KU Law.
Legal writing faculty from law schools across the country gathered at the University of Kansas to exchange views about how to teach the next generation of lawyers to communicate and advocate effectively. The law school hosted the 2013 Central States Legal Writing Conference on Sept. 27-28. Upwards of 60 experts attended. With a theme of “Creating Context & Connections,” presenters shared teaching techniques, curriculum ideas, research, assessment methods, and uses of technology – all in an effort to help students succeed in the classroom and in their careers. KU Law has long been a leader in legal writing instruction. Training begins with a year-long Lawyering Skills course, where students learn the fundamentals of legal analysis, research, and writing. Over the next two years, they refine these skills through upper-level writing courses, service on the Kansas Law Review and the Kansas Journal of Law & Public Policy, and training in KU’s clinics and advocacy programs.
Scholarship will provide in-state tuition to KC, MO To strengthen KU Law’s already solid connection to the Kansas City area, the law school will begin offering a scholarship that provides the equivalent of in-state tuition to residents of Kansas City, Mo. Beginning in the fall of 2014, students admitted to KU Law from the 11 counties in the Kansas City metro (Bates, Buchanan, Cass, Clay, Clinton, Henry, Jackson, Johnson, Lafayette, Platte, and Ray) will receive the scholarship. More detailed information will be available early in 2014. Check our website (law.ku.edu), and spread the word to law school candidates you know who live on the Missouri side of Kansas City.
Students learn virtues of Dodge City, Wichita during career services visits
First-year law student Lin Lei listens intently as Melanie Wilson, associate dean for academic affairs, welcomes the Class of 2016 to Green Hall.
Class of 2016 brings diverse talents to KU Law It may be the smallest class KU Law has admitted in decades, but the Class of 2016 comes to Green Hall with impressive credentials, diverse backgrounds, and track records that forecast success. As of Oct. 5, the class included 106 students (an intentionally smaller class to more accurately reflect the demand for new attorneys in the marketplace). Sixty-one percent of them hail from Kansas, with the remaining 39 percent joining KU from other states. Women constitute 49 percent of the class, and minorities represent 18 percent. Ten students already have a graduate degree. Six have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, and one has served in the South Korean military. One student is a concert clarinetist; another is a former Big 12 basketball player; and a third is a former Kansas police officer. Some are the progeny of generations of lawyers; others are the first in their families to finish college, let alone to study law. “Law school is a marathon, not a sprint,” said Melanie Wilson, associate dean for academic affairs, in her opening remarks to the class. “Your knowledge and understanding will build over the weeks, over the semesters, and over the years. Today you take the first steps toward becoming a professional problem solver, someone who through hard work and skill development will hold the power to change lives and make a difference.”
Two programs inaugurated this fall generated awareness in Green Hall about communities across Kansas many students had never visited or considered. The KU Law Rural & Solo Program expanded its scope when 11 KU Law students attended the 2013 meeting of the Southwest Kansas Bar Association in Dodge City. Over two days in September, students met with leaders, attended programs, saw Chief Justice Lawton Nuss speak and receive his silver belly hat, and participated in interviews with as many as 10 firms from the region. They also learned how to two-step, a critical skill for any aspiring lawyer out West. October marked the launch of KU Law’s “24 Hours of Wichita” program. Twenty KU Law 1Ls were treated to a glimpse of Wichita, Kan. They stayed in the Old Town district, visited loft and condo living spaces, and enjoyed a wine reception at Oeno and a meal the next day at the Wichita Art Museum. The program is deliberately designed to celebrate the city while not broaching the subject of jobs. With no lawyer speeches, no firm visits and no formal functions, the program fulfilled its mission
of promoting the community and supporting the legal hiring needs of firms, businesses and community organizations in Wichita. Thank you to the Southwest Kansas Bar Association and Wichita’s firms and civic organizations, whose generous support made these programs possible.

KU LAW SERVES KANSAS A sk lawyers why they got into the profession, and often you’ll hear answers about helping people, serving the community, or making a difference in the world. It’s almost cliché, except that’s what lawyers do. At KU Law, a large part of that commitment revolves around service to the state of Kansas. Our clinics provide legal aid to needy residents, a second chance for wrongfully convicted prisoners, law clerks for judges and prosecutors, research assistance to state and tribal courts, and more. Our faculty supply expert testimony to the Kansas Legislature and state agencies, craft state laws and university policies, conduct research and author scholarship that analyzes and improves the law, and educate Kansas attorneys through CLE presentations. And KU Law alumni work across the state as county attorneys, judges, public defenders, prosecutors, legislators, legal services providers, and lawyers in almost every state agency in Kansas. In innumerable ways, KU Law and its alumni strengthen the Sunflower State.

Students help improve administration of justice through KS Supreme Court Research Clinic
esearch skills smooth the path to law school success, but they also make a difference for the state of Kansas, thanks to the work of the Kansas Supreme Court Research Clinic. “Ultimately, Kansas is the big winner because the student research aids efforts to improve the administration of justice, at almost no cost, and this experience helps produce better law graduates – many of whom will practice in Kansas,” said Chris Steadham, clinic director and associate director of the Wheat Law Library. The Kansas Supreme Court Research Clinic is one of 12 practical skills clinics and externships available for KU Law students, and one of the most unique law clinic concepts in the country. Students who join the clinic receive research projects from the Kansas Supreme Court and Office of Judicial Administration as arranged by

instructors, then use a variety of methodologies to thoroughly research the topics. At the end of the semester, students present their findings in front of the Court and submit papers that are informative, rather than persuasive, in nature. Last spring, eight students participated in the clinic, and presentation day was met with enthusiasm by the judges. “I can already tell we are going to benefit,” Justice Marla Luckert said. “And I also commend you for the product, because I can tell it’s been thoroughly done from what I can see so far.” As students gain practical research experience through the clinic, they also assist the Court by providing needed research support. Like any other major court, the justices and their staff members are often too busy with official business to devote time to general research inquiries.
This need is met by the students, who essentially become experts on a topic after examining it in-depth over the course of several months. “They allow the Court and the Office of Judicial Administration – and, by extension, the entire Kansas court system – to learn quite a bit about an important topic that might otherwise get put on the backburner,” Steadham said. “The considerable research output of the students can then be used as a jump-start for more formal consideration of an issue within the Court or OJA.” Last spring, students tackled a number of complex topics in their presentations, including issues surrounding the exhaustion of state remedies doctrine for federal habeus corpus purposes, the applicability of codes of ethics to court employees, the effect of the Southern Union decision on criminal fines in Kansas, and confidential employees’ rights As students gain under case law and the government employee rights act. practical research Justices gave students about experience through eight minutes each to present their findings, leaving time for questions the clinic, they also at the end. And they didn’t sit assist the Court by passively through the presentations. On the contrary, they often asked providing needed for clarification and occasionally research support. challenged a statement. “I think very few situations are more intimidating than that,” said Rene Ugarte, L’13, one of last spring’s participants. “If I can survive that experience and feel good about it, what else can I do? It really built a lot of confidence in my research and presentation skills.” Not many lawyers get the opportunity to appear before a supreme court, let alone law students. But the Kansas Supreme Court Research Clinic is a beneficial situation for everyone involved. Students gain an invaluable experience that helps them stand out in a competitive job market and prepares them to adeptly handle a number of challenges. And the justices are always appreciative of the students’ work in the clinic, including Carol Beier, L’85, who spoke at the luncheon following last spring’s presentations. “To be honest, I am so proud of all of you that I almost get choked up when trying to explain how much I enjoy your visits,” she said. “Thank you so much for all of your hard work. We will make good use of it.” As the clinic has gained steam, other states are beginning to take notice. Three of the Kansas Supreme Court justices presented on the clinic at a regional SCOTUS justice conference, and as a result, several neighboring states are considering emulating it. Steadham said he believes that this clinic is truly unique in the nation, and he looks forward to the good work it will produce for years to come: “I hope we can maintain our current trajectory working toward a true win-win situation that benefits the Court, the law school, and the State of Kansas.” — Sarah Shebek

Juliann Morland DaVee, L’10 Healing patients with the help of legal remedies
10 KU LAW MAGAZINE
rmed with a laptop, portable printer and conversational Spanish, Juliann Morland DaVee spent the summer after her second year of law school providing legal services to migrant and seasonal farmworkers in Illinois. She didn’t know it at the time, but that internship could not have been better preparation for her current job. DaVee, L’10, is the sole attorney for the Southwest Kansas Medical-Legal Partnership. She serves indigent clients in 24 counties, traveling to medical clinics in Ulysses, Liberal, Dodge City, Garden City and Scott City. “I pretty much carry my office with me,” she said. DaVee sees patients of United Methodist Mexican-American Ministry Health Clinics and Area Mental Health Centers – many of them Hispanic residents who speak Spanish as their primary language. Her goal – and the aim of the medical-legal partnership model nationally – is to solve legal problems that contribute to ill health. Cases range from family law to disability law to landlord-tenant disputes. DaVee handles many domestic abuse situations. One woman seeking a divorce from an abusive spouse pulled her hair aside and showed DaVee she had attempted suicide by gunshot. The client expressed gratitude to DaVee for showing her “another way to be happy.” “The practice of public interest law can be difficult, but it has been the success stories where we were able to assist in getting a client out of an abusive home or stand up against a landlord who wasn’t following the law that makes it all worthwhile,” DaVee said. Although she came to KU to study international law, DaVee

“The practice of public interest law can be difficult, but it has been the success stories ... that make it all worthwhile.” discovered the school’s MedicalLegal Partnership Clinic and became passionate about legal interventions to sustain long-term health. She granted wishes at the Kansas Make a Wish Foundation and volunteered at the Lawrence Homeless Coalition, winning the Robert F. Bennett Student Award for demonstrating “leadership qualities through public service.” “The most important thing on my wall is the Bennett Award,” DaVee said. “That encourages me – that KU acknowledged what I’m doing and
found that service to people was an important career pursuit.” Today she is active with the Make a Wish Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, the Garden City Arts and Circles of Hope, an initiative that partners community volunteers with families ready to make the journey out of poverty. Through clinics, externships and study abroad opportunities at KU Law, DaVee said she gained experience and courage to step out of her comfort zone while creating friendships with people from all walks of life. “I think helping others through the medical-legal partnership is partly about having the legal skills and ability to do so,” she said, “but also about meeting people where they are, building trust with them and an understanding of how you can best help them through the practice of law.” — Mindie Paget
Jabari Wamble, L’06 Protecting Kansans in their homes, communities
s an undergraduate, Jabari Wamble was captain of KU’s track team and dreamed of a career in business or collegiate athletics. But just a few years later, he fell in love and his life’s ambitions changed. “Once in law school, I fell in love with the law and litigating, and at that point I was hooked,” he said. It was the hands-on, practical experience Wamble gained at KU Law that convinced him his future was in public service. As a law student, he interned for a federal judge and was active with the school’s Defender Project (now the Paul E. Wilson Project for Innocence). Wamble worked with clients, submitted briefs and received guidance from supervising attorneys, all before he completed his degree. “Those opportunities really helped set me up for what I wanted to do,” said Wamble, L’06. After graduation, Wamble worked in the Johnson County District Attorney’s domestic violence unit. He saw the need for good attorneys and felt the responsibility that comes with protecting victims in their homes and communities. Later, while working in the Kansas Attorney General’s office, he assisted with a case involving a physician connected to 68 prescription drug deaths and 150 overdoses. Ultimately the doctor was convicted and prevented from claiming more victims. “There were a lot of signs, and people ignored them and 68 people were allowed to die,” Wamble said. “This would have gone on for how long? So to those family members, that their loved one didn’t die in vain and that the doctor was held responsible gave them some closure and relief that no one else would have to experience that.”

“I don’t think there’s a shortage of students coming out of Green Hall who want to do something good for their community.” Now an Assistant United States Attorney in Kansas City, Kan., Wamble is a proponent of KU Law’s clinics and opportunities for handson experience, crediting them with helping to launch his career in the public sector. He encourages students to take advantage of KU’s practical curriculum and pursue the legal path they desire, even if it isn’t the most conventional or comfortable one. “I don’t think there’s a shortage of students coming out of Green Hall who want to do something good for their community,” Wamble said. “There’s no greater honor than to stand up in court and represent the people of the United States.” — Emily Sharp

y the time clients come to Shane Bangerter, they are often unable to work, out of money and falling behind on their bills. “When I can make something happen for them, I get a sense of satisfaction that I’ve really helped somebody out,” said Bangerter, L’91, who recently won a settlement for a man who had been denied medical benefits after being injured on the job. “He’s back in school, pursuing a career he now has the physical abilities to perform.” Bangerter has championed the interests of both individual claimants and industry respondents in more than 2,500 cases during his 22 years of practicing workers’ compensation law in Dodge City. The western Kansas town of 28,000 has been an ideal setting for Bangerter to build a thriving practice and give back to his community. Until Gov. Sam Brownback appointed Bangerter to the Kansas Board of Regents earlier this year, he had served on the Dodge City Community College Board of Trustees for six years. Bangerter believes strongly that education leads to enhanced social and economic status. “Finding ways to make sure that our education system is accessible and affordable is something that’s very important to me and something that I will work very hard to achieve while I’m serving on the Board of Regents,” he said. These aren’t Bangerter’s first brushes with community involvement. He has served on the boards of the KU Law Alumni, Dodge City Housing Authority, Dodge City Roundup Rodeo, The Alley Teen Center, and Dodge City Raceway Park. “Particularly in a smaller community, legal expertise is very valuable to local boards,” he said.
“I think it’s very important for lawyers to be actively engaged in their communities.” By all accounts, Bangerter backs up his service with a wealth of professional experience and a proven reputation. A founding partner of Rebein Bangerter Rebein PA, he was named a 2013 Lawyer of the Year by “Best Lawyers in America” and a Top 100 Trial Lawyer in Kansas by the American Trial Lawyers Association. He has argued cases before the Workers Compensation Board of Review, the Kansas Court of Appeals and the Kansas Supreme Court. He credits his time in Green Hall and his farm upbringing in Leoti, Kan., for shaping the fulfilling personal and professional life he enjoys today. “Growing up in a small town in western Kansas – in a family where neither one of my parents went to college – the opportunities that my legal education has provided me have been invaluable,” Bangerter said. — Mindie Paget
Jeff Mason, L’83 Combining career, community service in small town
hen Jeff Mason, L’83, recalls his time at Green Hall, he thinks of bridge. “There was a constant bridge game going in the commons,” he said. “People would get in and out of class and hand off their hand and play for an hour or more.” Those endless card games provided more than a welcome diversion for Mason and his classmates. “That built relationships with people,” he said. “It taught us that even though we were in competition with one another — whether in law or a simple bridge game — there was still a way to do that and remain professional.” It is just this emphasis on professionalism and collegiality that Mason feels distinguishes KU and shaped his career. A southwest Kansas native, Mason chose to practice in Goodland, a town of 4,550 just miles from the Colorado and Nebraska borders. “I had no desire to be in a big firm in the city. I wanted to be in a
small firm where I could do legal work for people and be involved in the community,” Mason said. That civic duty was fostered in Green Hall, where professors instilled in students a sense of service and professionalism. “Professors taught us that the practice of law was a profession of service,” Mason said. “We were not just attorneys, we were people who were going to go out and serve the people of Kansas.” It’s a lesson Mason has taken to heart. He serves on the Board of Governors for the Kansas Bar Association and the Commission on Judicial Qualification, as chairman of the capital campaign for his local hospital, and as a member of the Goodland Kiwanis Club. As he puts it, living in a smaller community allows him to be involved in more important things. Mason hopes current students take that lesson from Green Hall as well. “Small towns in Kansas are underserved,” he said. “Students can find a very successful career in small towns where they will be financially successful but also have significant non-financial rewards.” At the same time, Mason hopes students won’t give up their bridge games anytime soon. He encourages students to experience life outside the walls of Green Hall. As a 3L, Mason and a friend took racquetball and golf lessons. He worked with classmates during his second year of law school on a campaign to elect a fellow student to the House of Representatives. “We got ourselves soundly defeated, but it was a valuable experience,” Mason said. “If you focus only on law school, you have severely limited yourself.” — Emily Sharp

atricia Macke Dick started out in private practice, but she found her true calling advocating for children. “I started getting involved in juvenile law and saw a real need there,” said Macke Dick, L’81. “I saw situations that were just heartbreaking. I found my inner social worker and thought, ‘I want to be involved in that all the time.’” As a law student who enjoyed commercial law and figured she would become a general practitioner, Macke Dick never expected to end up on the bench. During her seven years of private practice in Reno County, however, she discovered she didn’t enjoy collecting legal fees. “I was just a natural helper, and I wanted to give advice,” she said. “But I felt badly when clients struggled to pay me.” When a seat opened on the Reno County District Court, Macke Dick saw the perfect opportunity to get out of private practice and still use her legal skills to provide assistance to Kansas families. She threw her hat into the ring and won. Twenty-five years later, she’s still serving. She admits that the job can be challenging, particularly when she sees the same families in her chambers again and again. Celebrating successes keeps her motivated. “There are times we get involved with a family and get them redirected and never see them again, and that’s a success,” said Macke Dick, who became chief judge in 2007 and handles the court’s juvenile and civil dockets. “If children are safe and happy, we’ve done our job. We have to measure by those little steps.” The political nature of her role can also be trying. Macke Dick describes juvenile law as a pendulum
that swings between safety for children and autonomy for parents. “Right now that pendulum is at a place where concerns for children are being screened out, and that hits me hard,” Macke Dick said. “We had a child die in Reno County last month.” She suggests that it’s time for the pendulum to swing the other direction. “Safety of children must be priority,” she said. “What cost can we put on a child’s life?” During the difficult moments, Macke Dick’s involvement in her close-knit community keeps her grounded. She and her husband married after her first semester of law school and settled outside Buhler to run the family farm. She helped bring mental health services to her community through a local counseling center, has been active with Parents as Teachers and the Salvation Army, and volunteers with her church. “If things aren’t going swimmingly with my case load,” she said, “then I feel like at least I’m helping with this or that project.” — Emily Sharp

Stephen McAllister, L'88: Professor dedicated to serving Kansans honored with Hampton Distinguished Professorship
onstitutional law expert Stephen McAllister is the newest E.S. & Tom W. Hampton Distinguished Professor of Law. The award recognizes McAllister’s scholarship and provides support for his academic and professional endeavors. “The Hampton chair is one of the highest honors I could hope to achieve at KU Law,” McAllister said. “Holding the Hampton chair means much to me, both because the Hamptons are a great and generous Kansas family that long has supported the law school, and because I follow Professor Emeritus Keith Meyer as holder of the chair. I have big shoes to fill and high expectations to meet as my career continues.”
A 1988 graduate of KU Law, McAllister worked in private practice in the Washington, D.C., office of Gibson Dunn & Crutcher and clerked for Justices Byron White and Clarence Thomas at the U.S. Supreme Court. He joined the faculty of his legal alma mater in 1993, receiving the Dean Frederick J. Moreau Award in 1997, a W.T. Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence in 1999 and the Steeples Award for Service to Kansans in 2008. McAllister
was dean of the law school from 2000 to 2005. He now serves as Solicitor General of Kansas, a role that has taken him to the Supreme Court to argue cases on behalf of the state. The E.S. & Tom W. Hampton Professorship was established in 1985 by the family, law firm and friends of Salina lawyers E.S. and Tom W. Hampton. E.S. Hampton was a 1929 graduate of the law school and senior partner at Salina firm Burch, Litowich and Royce. His son Tom graduated from KU Law in 1959 and joined his father’s practice. The professorship honors the Hamptons’ legacy and aims to attract and retain quality faculty at KU Law.
KU faculty have a long history of serving the state by drafting laws and providing expert testimony to legislators, publishing articles and giving presentations that supply continuing legal education to members of the Kansas bar, granting interviews to area media that elucidate legal elements of their coverage, representing low-income and incarcerated clients as supervising attorneys in KU Law clinics and more. Following is a sampling of faculty service activities: Webb Hecker served as the principal drafter on the Subcommittee on Amendments to the Kansas Revised Limited Liability Company Act. He testified before the Kansas House Judiciary Committee in support of the amendments in March 2013. The amendments are the first comprehensive look at the statute since its enactment in 2000 and ensure that Kansas continues its tradition of leadership in business law.

RESEARCH: ARTICLE ADDRESSES CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUES WITH PRIVATE GOVERNMENT CONTRACTORS KU Law Professor Lou Mulligan has co-authored an article about remedying constitutional violations perpetrated by privately employed government contractors on the heels of briefing the same issue in the U.S. Supreme Court. Mulligan co-authored both an amicus curiae brief in the high court case of Minneci v. Pollard and an article, discussing the case, with Alexander A. Reinert, associate professor of law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. The article appeared in the Washington University Law Review in May 2013. In the case, an inmate at a privately run federal prison claimed that during work detail he fractured both of his elbows. He wasn’t given immediate medical care, was later shackled, exacerbating the injury
before treatment, and was ultimately left unable to work upon his release. He sued for violations of his Eighth Amendment constitutional rights. The Supreme Court ruled that, even though publicly employed prison guards would be susceptible to suit, the privately employed
guards could not be found liable for constitutional violations because of their employment status. Taking a stance contrary to the Court’s ultimate holding during the high court briefing, Mulligan explained that “our position was that there should be no distinction, in terms of liability for constitutional violations, between governmentrun and privately run prisons. The decision as it stands allows federal agencies to avoid their constitutionally imposed liability simply by hiring private contractors.” The decision was also troublesome because the use of state tort law, which the Supreme Court relied upon as an alternative to a constitutional action, cannot always be applied in the same manner as federal constitutional law, Mulligan and Reinert argue.
RESEARCH: HEALTH CARE FIGHT REFLECTS ROLE OF FEDERALISM IN DISPUTES, PROFESSOR ARGUES When the United States was in its infancy and the founding fathers drafted the Articles of Confederation, they likely had no idea how that might contribute to the polarized nation we live in today. Richard E. Levy, the J.B. Smith Distinguished Professor of Constitutional Law, has authored an article exploring four of America’s most divisive issues and how they all become arguments of federalism, or federal government authority versus states’ rights. In the paper Levy explores the Affordable Care Act, immigration, same-sex marriage and gun rights. He probes the political ins and outs of each issue and how they essentially boil down to questions of who decides the issue: the federal or state government. His research was presented at a conference at
18 KU LAW MAGAZINE
Kanagawa University in Yokohama, Japan, in November. “I began thinking about what the effect of federalism is in the United States and how it related to the financial crisis,” Levy said. “As I studied that and many other divisive topics, I realized they were all not only hot
button issues, but federalism issues.” Levy notes that federalism has largely magnified the current redstate, blue-state divide by encouraging states to enact more radical policies on each side. The tendency to use federalism as an argument to support a cause is both inherent in the system and to a lesser extent human nature. History shows that polarization is not constant and that moderates have had success at the federal level. Conversely, sometimes one side is so powerful they essentially have no opposition and thus practically no polarization. “I tend to think a better understanding of problems promotes better solutions,” Levy said. “I would hope this research would help people understand how the issues become jumbled and how they might be addressed.”
RESEARCH: PROFESSOR ARGUES JUDICIAL OVERSIGHT NEEDED FOR FINES LEVELED BY SEC Since the financial crisis of 2008, attempts to penalize and curb activity that caused the crash have drawn criticism for being too arbitrary and leaving the sentencing to an ineffective agency. Also under scrutiny are regulations that may disproportionately affect small banks and agencies more than larger, repeat offenders. KU Law Professor Quinton Lucas has authored an article arguing that federal courts should approve or deny penalties on financial wrongdoers, thereby leveling the playing field and creating a more fair economy. In the article, “Rubber Stamp Review: Federal Court Deference to the SEC,” Lucas argues that by requiring the Securities and Exchange Commission, commonly known as the SEC, to levy transparent, meaningful
fines in cases of financial wrongdoing, federal courts can provide balance to a system in which investors and the public have lost confidence. “There are cases that are filed all the time. The majority are settled out of court, but is there a way courts can help us avoid what happened
before?” Lucas asked, referring to the 2008 financial crisis. An unintended consequence of the 2010 Dodd-Frank act, intended to prevent financial malfeasance, has been harshly punishing small banks while allowing massive firms to get away with relatively small fines for large-scale wrongdoing, Lucas argues. He proposes a system by which the SEC makes clear a set of criteria through which it set penalties, and why and how it determines fine amounts. Such a system could make clear that large recidivist firms will not be able to simply view small fines as a “cost of business.” “If Congress doesn’t want the courts to have a role, they need to rewrite the statutes,” Lucas said. “There is a way to ensure that effective regulation is happening.”
RESEARCH: PROFESSOR EXAMINING POTENTIAL LAWS TO REGULATE DE-EXTINCTION Science has a way of catching up with fantasy. While movies like “Jurassic Park” brought dinosaurs back to life, few imagined that the day might come when extinct creatures could be revived. But the possibility of such revival is not only real, it’s getting closer all the time. KU Law Professor Andrew Torrance is part of a group of scholars working to propose a legal framework to address the myriad questions “de-extinction” will bring to the table. Torrance recently took part in a de-extinction conference at Stanford University and is crafting suggestions for potential law to deal with the controversial science as it becomes reality. While dinosaurs won’t be revived — the fossils are too old and contain no usable DNA — other more recently extinct creatures such as woolly
mammoths, saber-toothed tigers and passenger pigeons could potentially be revived. The biotechnology is mostly in place. What’s not in place is law to address questions such as who would own such revived creatures, how their habitat would be governed, international relations among countries housing such creatures
and who would be responsible for potential damages among others. Torrance advocates for developing a legal framework to address de-extinction before it’s common practice and says there are precedents that can be used to start the process. By working together proactively, scientists, lawmakers and the public can craft regulations that would prevent many potential problems and avoid heavy-handed regulations that would ultimately stifle innovation. “De-extinction is something we do need to regulate, but in proportion to the potential risk it could create,” Torrance said. “The law will react one way or another. I think it would be best if it reacts in a way that’s both beneficial to the science and public interest and in a way that keeps costs minimal.”

WHY I GIVE | Harry Herington, L’93 “Attending law school at the University of Kansas was a pivotal moment in my career path. Before law school, it was my law enforcement career that taught me the importance of supporting the families of fallen officers. Through this scholarship and my Ride4Cops initiative, I will continue my commitment to supporting the families of fallen officers and give others a similar life-changing experience at the University of Kansas School of Law.” Harry Herington, J.D. 1993, Overland Park, Kan. $250,000 — to establish the Harry Herington Law Enforcement Scholarship for children and spouses of fallen or disabled officers, or Kansas police officers and their children

Anna Kimbrell, L’14 “Last summer I traveled to New York City with a team of attorneys to close a wind energy deal valued in the hundreds of millions. We spent a week in a conference room working the deal with only a few hours of sleep each night. I was able to sit in on negotiations between the heads of two multi-national, multi-billion dollar companies, as well as representatives from JP Morgan and other major banks. It was amazing to get that experience as a first-year summer associate.” Summer internship: Husch Blackwell LLP, Kansas City, MO
