his issue of KU Law Magazine is all about transitions. It contains stories about two beloved professors who retired just as two new faces joined the faculty and two outstanding current faculty members earned tenure and distinction. It also features the chronicles of alumni who have opened their own law firms — some solo, some very small — to begin the first or next phase of their legal careers in the midst of challenging economic times. But first we hear from Stephen Mazza, who recently took the helm as interim dean while the search commences for a new leader to guide the KU School of Law to a bright future.
cC Get to know Interim Dean Stephen Mazza What brought you to the legal profession and, subsequently, to KU Law? Dad’s real estate office in downtown Huntsville, Ala., where I grew up, was right next to an office with about five attorneys who did mostly criminal law. We used to go hunting with one of the lawyers, and he ended up hiring me to work in the office. Dad admired the fellow, and so did I, so I guess that’s what led me to think about law school. After I announced during my second year of law school that I wanted to be a tax lawyer, Dad seemed a bit disappointed. I think he wanted me to be a criminal lawyer like his friends. Even after I got a job offer in the tax group at a major law firm in Atlanta, Dad insisted that I speak to the lawyers in the office next door to him about a job. Much to Dad’s disappointment, I went with the Atlanta offer. The job offer in Atlanta came during law school. The firm wanted me to start right
after graduation, but I wanted to spend a year at NYU getting my tax LL.M. The firm deferred my starting date, and I spent a wonderful year in New York City. Just before graduating NYU, one of the faculty members approached me about staying on as an acting assistant professor. The “APP” or “Ape” position, as it’s called at NYU, allows one grad each year to return to the law school to teach for two years on a non-tenure track basis. I decided that I needed some practice experience, so I declined to pursue the position. I went to work in Atlanta, but the thought of being a professor never left my mind. Eventually, I decided to contact the folks at NYU about the position. They had an opening and, thankfully, they offered me the job. My first class at NYU was a four-credit corporate tax class with over 100 students. I think I was the youngest person in the room. Luckily for me, my receding hairline made me look much older than I was, so
KU LAW MAGAZINE 3
I don’t think anyone knew. I enjoyed the classroom experience, the students seemed to like it as well, and I appreciated the fact that I could spend my days thinking
law. For example, in my three-credit Taxation of Mergers & Acquisitions class, in addition to learning some of the most complex law in the tax code, we spend time throughout the semester deconstructing a merger agreement. We talk about negotiating representations and warranties, performing due diligence and crafting indemnity agreements. I don’t know why I didn’t encounter these concepts in law school, but I want to make sure that my students do.

Once my two years at NYU were finished, the school helped me get a tenure-track position and, eventually, I came to KU.
Are you teaching while serving as interim dean? Although some of my colleagues think I’m crazy, I will teach one course each semester. I became a professor largely because I enjoy classroom teaching, and the notion that I would go a semester or a year without conducting a course seemed odd to me. I also got some advice from former Dean Martin Dickinson. He told me that, as the interim dean, the only hours during the week when I would have some control over my schedule would be while I was in class. That’s proving to be wise advice.
What do you enjoy about teaching the law? The short answer is the students. I’ve now been at KU Law long enough to see many of my former students become partners at law firms and major players in the legal profession. I didn’t remain in private practice long enough to make partner, so I’m still really impressed by that. I have different teaching goals in different classes. In the basic tax class, I want students to learn a lot of tax law, but I also want them to think about how the tax code affects savings and investment decisions, how tax incentives affect different income groups differently and how the tax code got so complicated. As a result, we spend quite a bit of time talking about policy issues. In my upper-level classes, I try to teach the students concepts and information that I think will be helpful to them when they start practicing

Aside from the great students, it’s the incredibly talented and dedicated faculty at KU Law. We’re not large enough to support professors who are only going to do scholarship or who think of their teaching as a distraction. KU Law professors must be both great scholars and great classroom teachers. I’m proud to count myself among such a talented group of folks. I’m also proud to be part of a school with such a dedicated group of alumni. Before taking the interim dean position, I didn’t fully realize just how generous our alumni and other supporters are with their time and funds. Our reputation was built on the accomplishments of these talented individuals, and their generosity supports our future.
What would your current and former students be surprised to know about you? That I’m not as much of a jerk as my teacher evaluations would suggest. I know I call on students randomly in class and I won’t let them use laptop computers during class, but I do that because I think it makes them better law students. You don’t have to agree with me, but I do genuinely believe that students learn more when they have an incentive to read the material before class and they pay attention. Now that I see it in writing, this does sound a little jerky. But I’m still going to do it.
What goals have you set for the law school during this interim period? For some initiatives, it’s appropriate to put those on hold until a new dean takes the helm. For others, because of their urgency or importance, we can’t afford to wait. For instance, fundraising is something we can’t ignore. The private support of our alumni allows us to make scholarship offers, bring in speakers and conduct events that benefit our students. Many of these initiatives would be impossible without the generous support of our donors. While most folks lament the fact that we have to conduct a dean search, it does present an opportunity for the school to think about where it is and where it wants to go in the future. We learn a lot preparing to interview the candidates,
gathering feedback from those involved in the process and debating among ourselves who might be the best candidate to lead the law school to even greater prominence.
What is the school looking for in its new dean? I suspect that you would get different answers from different groups. As a general matter, a law school dean must be a great administrator, a great fundraiser and
“I didn’t fully realize just how generous our alumni and other supporters are with their time and funds.” someone who is committed to the continued success of the KU School of Law. It’s not an easy job. It requires a lot of energy and dedication. Whoever the dean turns out to be, he or she will be responsible for a great institution that has the capacity and desire to be even greater. — An honors graduate of the University of Alabama School of Law, Mazza received his LL.M. from New York University School of Law.

The search is on The search committee tasked with finding a new dean for the KU School of Law is conducting a nationwide search. Chris Drahozal, the John M. Rounds Distinguished Professor of Law and associate dean for research and faculty development, is chair of the committee. Other members are Mike Kautsch, professor of law; Laura Hines, professor of law; John Head, Robert W. Wagstaff Distinguished Professor of Law; Melanie Wilson, associate professor of law; Pam Keller, clinical associate professor of law; Todd Rogers, assistant dean for career services; John Gaunt, dean of the School of Architecture, Design and Planning; Mary Lee Hummert, vice provost for faculty development; Derrick Darby, associate professor of philosophy; Ganesh Nair, a second-year law student from Alexandria,Va.; and William Sampson, a 1971 KU Law graduate and partner in Shook, Hardy & Bacon. The committee began reviewing candidates on Sept. 1 and hopes to have a new dean in place for the 2011-12 academic year.

Starting a Journey to J.D. Kansas high school students gain exposure to law at inaugural camp By Mindie Paget
hirteen Kansas high school students got a taste of law school and careers in the legal profession during the inaugural Journey to J.D. at the University of Kansas School of Law.
The students converged on Green Hall June 6-12, 2010, for the camp, designed to support, mentor and encourage diverse students entering their junior year of high school to attend college and, ultimately, law school and pursue legal opportunities in the region.

According to the students, the experience proved intense. “This definitely was more reality than what I thought it was going to be,” said Ameenah Johnson, a student at Sumner Academy in Kansas City, Kan. “I went to a few camps and they just like to show you a little bit, but here you got to see a more realistic view as to how law really is. Now I feel like I can really pursue it, and I know that I would be good at some type of law.”
The students dove headlong into a rigorous week of studies and travel, beginning with a team-building exercise at a Clinton Lake challenge course. They spent three full days in the classroom, learning basic legal principles from current law students serving as teaching assistants. During a Tuesday trip to Topeka, the students visited the Brown v. Board of How to help Education site, toured the Capitol and dropped in on the If you would like to make a Kansas Judicial Center, where donation or your company Kansas Appeals Court Judge would like be a sponsor for Joseph Pierron, L’71, walked Journey to J.D., please contact them through a role-playing Noelle Uhler at email@example.com. exercise to demonstrate the laws governing searches The program also needs and seizures. mentors working in the legal profession to stay in touch with Kansas City was the students and help them secure destination on Thursday.

The students also had an opportunity to meet alumni and other legal professionals during a Wednesday evening barbecue at Green Hall. Chris Abraham appreciated the exposure to lawyers working in a variety of areas. “All of them told us that no matter what we major in for our undergrad, we can still go to law school,” said Abraham, a student at Northeast Magnet High School in Wichita. “And with a law degree, you can do so many different things. If you’re a chemistry major, you can be a lawyer in the science field.” The law school’s alumni Diversity Council devised the idea for Journey to J.D., its version of the kinds of “pipeline” programs popularly employed by law schools and the legal profession to diversify legal education and the workforce. Karen Hester, director of diversity and inclusion, organized and oversaw the camp as program director, and associate professor Jelani Jefferson Exum served as faculty adviser. Major corporate and institutional sponsors included the Kansas Bar Association, Walmart, Lathrop & Gage LLP and KU Continuing Education. “I was very impressed with the students who participated in the program,” Hester said. “They were very dynamic and enthusiastic, and each one has the potential and aptitude to become an attorney. I look forward to working with them and future campers in their journey to becoming lawyers.”

After a combined 81 years of service, Coggins and Meyer retire from teaching Find more photos of Coggins and Meyer, as well as the text of poems read at the retirement dinner at www.law.ku.edu/fall10
t’s no exaggeration to say that KU Law lost two founding fathers last spring when George Coggins and Keith Meyer retired.
Both men are widely identified as creators of the fields in which they researched, published and taught for a combined 81 years. Meyer is a respected guru in agricultural law. Coggins literally wrote the book on public natural resources law. And they both left lasting impressions on their students and colleagues with idiosyncrasies that endeared, impressed and – occasionally – intimidated. Coggins’ students famously printed T-shirts featuring his hirsute face and two of his favorite questions: “Is it fair?” and “So what?” The law school bid Meyer and Coggins an official farewell during a retirement dinner on May 14 at the Adams Alumni Center. Speakers set the scene for the tumultuous, singular time during which the two joined the KU Law faculty – Meyer in 1969 and Coggins in 1970. In one of his first experiences teaching wills and trusts, Meyer asked a student a Socratic question about the construction of a certain clause in a will. “The student answered with a question of his own,” said Barkley Clark, who joined the KU Law faculty the same year as Meyer and is now a partner at Stinson Morrison Hecker Keither Meyer: Then

“He’s a great teacher with remarkable commitment to his students.” guard. In the wake of the Kansas Union fire and the deaths of two people on or near campus, Meyer and Clark were commissioned to protect the law school from any would-be destroyers. “We took sleeping bags and spent the night there as the entire city of Lawrence was under its first curfew since Quantrill,” Clark recalled. They poked their heads out of the front doors and saw the barrel of a rifle and a National Guardsman who told them sternly to get back inside. “Keith was troubled. So was I. We got back inside real quick.” The sudden, tragic death of Meyer’s father sent him back home to Iowa to handle matters related to the family farm. He soon discovered how little his family lawyers understood the legal issues that concerned the modern-day farmer. He returned to Lawrence with a new mission and quickly And now

became one of the nation’s foremost experts on what Clark jokingly referred to as “moo-moo” and “oink-oink” law. Over his career, Meyer has served as president of the American Agricultural Law Association, chair of the Association of American Law Schools Committee on Agricultural Law and editor in chief of the Journal of Agricultural Taxation and Law. He has testified before Congress on issues related to agriculture. And he has taught or mentored many agricultural lawyers, teachers and scholars. He and Clark traveled the country over several years co-teaching a series of programs on the intersection of agricultural and commercial law. “I now know why his 41 years of students venerate him so,” Clark said. “He’s a great teacher with remarkable commitment to his students.”
park in Kansas and developed an interest in the various classifications of federal lands. “I began to see that there’s a whole lot more to it than oil and gas,” Coggins said. As a trustee of the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, Coggins helped organize a 1979 seminar with natural resources law professors from across the country. There he met Charles Wilkins, who would be the co-author of his revolutionary casebook, “Public Natural Resources Law,” first published in 1980 and now in its 7th edition.
“Most of the students figured out the inner teddy bear that is the real George long, long ago.”
Despite his hard-earned curmudgeon persona, the same can be said of George Coggins. His long-time friend and colleague Mike Davis described him as “demanding, impatient, suffering fools poorly.”
“Before that, there were a couple of casebooks stemming from the ’50s, which were concerned only with oil, gas, hard-rock minerals and water,” Coggins said. “We added a bunch of layers to that, including history, constitutional provisions, wildlife, range, timber, recreation and preservation. And we treated them all as coequal resources, and that approach has become the standard since.”
Yet, “all of his colleagues on the faculty, all of the staff at the law school and most of the students figured out the inner teddy bear that is the real George long, long ago,” Davis said.
Ten years later, Coggins co-authored a treatise with former KU Law Professor Rob Glicksman that has become the bible for public land and resources attorneys.
Coggins joined the KU faculty in 1970 and, early on, taught courses in civil procedure, administrative law and trial tactics. He soon became president of the Lawrence Sierra Club, joined the Topeka-Kansas City Air Pollution Research Group and began publishing journal articles on environmental law.
Through all his years of prodigious output, Coggins shunned technology and wrote thousands of pages of books and articles by hand. The law school’s support staff, who typed the pieces for publication, can attest to that.
He became involved in efforts to create a tallgrass national

Going Solo BY MINDIE PAGET
Todd Abplanalp, L’03 22 KU LAW MAGAZINE
Recent alumni chronicle benefits, challenges of running own legal practice
odd Abplanalp had considered starting a solo practice for several years, but the economic downturn – and the corresponding pay cuts at his law firm – finally convinced him the timing was right.
Stacy Harper, L’09, Blane Markley, L’07, and Frankie Forbes, L’02, have also enjoyed steady work at their firm, The Forbes Law Group, since opening earlier this year in Overland Park. The boutique focuses on corporate and regulatory health care and was not, its three attorneys said, a product of the economic downturn.
The 2003 graduate opened Consumer Law KC to focus on personal bankruptcy in August in Lee’s Summit, Mo. “When the economy was booming and I was a busy associate, I had little reason to consider opening my own shop,” he said. “I realized that I needed to control my own career, and I knew that I had less to lose now than perhaps at any point in the future. If the economy had stayed on pace, I may never have had the impetus to make the switch.”
Frankie Forbes, L’02
More seasoned attorneys like Abplanalp and fresh-out-ofschool lawyers alike are hanging out shingles as the legal market struggles and larger firms respond with lay-offs and hiring freezes. Usually about 3 percent of law graduates open their own law firms each year, according to the National Association for Law Placement. The number jumped noticeably in 2009 to 5.5 percent, a level not seen since the period from 1992-1997, another recessionary and post-recessionary period. Among KU Law graduates, the reasons for going solo or small vary: a desire for more control over their practices and career trajectories; better work-life balance; potential to capitalize on emerging new markets; the search for a new challenge. “What I enjoy most is the autonomy, flexibility and sense of accomplishment I get from having my own business,” said Heather Counts, L’00, who opened The Counts Law Firm in early 2009 in Kansas City, Mo. “I work many more hours than I ever did before, but I enjoy them so much more. Everything I do directly impacts my bottom line, my reputation in the field and my firm’s success.” Business is ticking along for Counts, despite the difficult economic times. She attributes that to the nine years she spent working at large and small firms before heading out on her own. “I have practiced long enough to build up a good existing client base and referral network,” she said. “I also have ‘big firm’ training but am able to charge more competitive rates because I have lower overhead. I am always accessible to my clients and will not hand off a matter to a lesser-experienced associate.”
Stacy Harper, L’09
“Our decision to create the new law firm was based on an opportunity to take advantage of the recent health care changes and develop a more boutique practice,” Harper said. “We are extremely busy and are exploring the possibility of adding new attorneys.” Still, solo and small-group practice is not without its challenges. Among them are setting up the office, its systems and all the requisite technology. “I was used to having a tech support team at my office. Now I’m the tech support team,” said Abplanalp, who previously practiced at King Hershey in Kansas City. “I’m also the paralegal, accountant, office administrator and, occasionally, the attorney.”
Todd Rogers, assistant dean for career services at KU Law, advises students or alumni exploring Blane Markley, L’07 the idea of going solo to find a mentor – or multiple mentors – who have been where they want to go. Counts and other graduates echoed that sentiment. “I would encourage anyone thinking about going solo to spend some time talking to several solos prior to taking the plunge,” Counts said. “They will offer a lot of advice on everything from office space to billing software, and having this knowledge before making purchases, signing contracts and entering leases will help to avoid making a decision that the new solo later regrets.”

“Solo by Choice” (LawyerAvenue Press), by Carolyn Elefant
“A few years of working with more experienced attorneys is invaluable, in my opinion, not only for learning your practice area but also for developing sound judgment and practice habits,” she said. “As a tax, estate planning and corporate attorney, I think I would have been lost without the wonderful training I received at my former firms. “By starting my own practice when I was nine years out of law school, I felt confident enough in my own abilities to go it alone – and hopefully to have developed the judgment needed to know when to back away and refer a matter on.” Burton Harding didn’t have that luxury. He graduated in May 2009 amid a legal employment climate not friendly to inexperienced attorneys.
Heather Counts, L’00 Harper and her partners urge attorneys to determine their philosophy before starting their own firm, especially if they plan to have partners. “Having everyone in agreement regarding salary, client development and overall business planning before you make the jump helps to maintain a healthy working relationship once you get going,” Harper said. “Make sure you know the people you will be working with. Try spending extended time in a small space together. If you are still speaking, you should be good to go.” Even with all the best planning, Abplanalp said solo practice can leave one feeling out of touch. “Use the resources available to you,” he said. “Several bar associations, including Missouri, have detailed checklists of steps to take to start a new practice. Review those checklists because there will be items on that list that you haven’t thought of.” Ideally, Counts said, new attorneys should avoid starting a solo practice right out of law school if they can.

“How to Start and Build a Law Practice” (American Bar Association), by Jay Foonberg
“There weren’t very many jobs that I qualified for as a new graduate,” he said. “And those that I did qualify for wouldn’t help me advance my career much, such as a document review clerk. I needed employment – employment that might open doors in the future.”
Harding opened his own firm in small-town Girard, Kan., the week after he got his bar exam results in October 2009. The experience has been intimidating and terrifying at times, he admitted, but he has gained a lot of experience quickly and learned all of the practical details of running a law office along the way. Business is building slowly, Harding said, but new solos should not expect to make much money for a long time. “I am able to meet my bills and obligations each month and take a little bit home,” he said. “It is a modest living so far, but the potential is great.” He wouldn’t advise for or against opening a solo law firm. “It would be different from person to person,” he said. “I was in a good situation at a good time to do it. And I am in a small, supportive community. Another person in another place might not have those same advantages.” n

The Way We Were
KU Archives/Spencer Research Library
A walk to remember
ince 1978, KU Law students have made an annual journey back to Old Green Hall at the top of Mount Oread, where the law school first opened in 1878. The walk begins at the current law building, 15th and Burdick, and heads back through time as students ascend the Hill, take their place on the steps of Old Green and listen to a faculty member recount stories from law school history. These days, Martin Dickinson leads the way and shares the lore, as in the photo at right from the 2010 walk. In 1978, Paul Wilson led the charge. Pictured above are members of the first group of students to take classes in the new law building â€” and the first group to return to the schoolâ€™s birth place in 1978.

Dear Alumni & Friends of KU Law, Law school is transitory by nature. Each year, we admit a promising new class of first-year students, eager to learn the law, not long after we’ve sent a well-educated group of KU lawyers out into the world to be strong advocates and leaders. The transitions under way this year, however, move beyond the normal ebb and flow in Green Hall. With the departure of Dean Gail Agrawal this summer, I am humbly leading the way as my colleagues search for a new dean to take us in exciting new directions. I am honored to serve as interim dean at the law school where I’ve worked as a professor and administrator for the past 12 years. It has been my pleasure to meet so many loyal, accomplished alumni and friends in the short time that I’ve held this position. You also continually prove to be a generous group, as the donor report on the following pages exhibits. Your gifts allowed us to provide scholarships, support faculty research, enrich the library collection and host distinguished speakers – even in the midst of a faltering economy. You also gave freely of your time and talent. You spoke on career panels, presented at continuing legal education seminars, delivered guest lectures, mentored students and served on advisory boards. The law school is a better place because of you, and I thank you on behalf of our students, faculty and staff. The dean transition is not the only change at Green Hall this fall. Noticeably absent from our classrooms are two long-time faculty members. George Coggins and Keith Meyer both retired this spring after a remarkable 81 years of combined service. We wished them farewell at a dinner in May. You can read more about their KU Law careers in this issue. With their departure came the arrival of two new faculty faces: Virginia Harper Ho and Lou Mulligan. Ho joins us as an associate
professor from the University of IndianaBloomington. She’s teaching Business Associations and Corporate Finance. Mulligan, whose return to KU marks a homecoming to his undergraduate alma mater, will teach Civil Procedure and Jurisdiction. We expect great things from these accomplished teachers and scholars.
In August, we welcomed 165 new students – a diverse class of some of the best and brightest students we have admitted to date. The median LSAT score is up, and we have seen increased enrollment in our Two-Year J.D. for Foreign-Trained Lawyers and S.J.D. (Doctor of Juridical Science) programs, which draw students from around the nation and world to Green Hall. We know you’ve been undergoing transitions of your own. Another story in this issue focuses on recent alumni who have opened their own legal practices, most of them after leaving larger firms. And in the Alumni Notes, you’ve reported changes in family, jobs and even careers. We’re proud of your accomplishments and grateful for your service and gifts to KU Law. You can be confident that your contributions directly impact our students and the education they receive. One piece of evidence: KU Law was recently singled out as a top 20 “best value” law school by preLaw Magazine for the second year in a row. We value this ranking because it is consistent with our primary mission to provide a high-quality legal education that is affordable to students. We ranked an impressive No. 5 on the list because of our high bar pass rates, employment rates of 85 percent or more, low tuition and a lower-than-average indebtedness.
Stephen W. Mazza Interim Dean & Professor of Law
You help make those achievements possible. In economic times that continue to challenge us all, your ongoing support is crucial to maintaining these standards. Thank you for your generosity. I look forward to meeting more of you in my travels throughout the state and country in the coming months.
