Letter from the Dean Hillary Nicholas looked into the eyes of ancient Egyptian deities painted on a temple wall in Cairo and knew she wanted to go to law school. Her background in archaeology and her passion for preserving antiquities led her to KU Law, where she hopes to study intellectual property and become a crusader for the protection of cultural artifacts. Hillary is one of four students you’ll meet in this issue who saw a problem in the world, realized her strengths and interests aligned with solving it, and decided pursuing a legal education was the next logical step in becoming the type of advocate who could devise a meaningful solution. Our job is to make sure KU Law fosters an environment where students like Hillary can realize their full potential and springboard into fulfilling careers. That’s why scholarships are the No. 1 priority in our capital campaign – followed by faculty support, program enhancements and building improvements. Far Above: The Campaign for Kansas officially launched in April, and we are well on our way to meeting the law school’s $20 million fundraising goal. Thanks to the amazing generosity of our alumni, we have raised more than $14.7 million. You can learn why some of your fellow KU Law graduates have been inspired to give on pages 34-35 and browse the full donor report for fiscal year 2012 starting on page 36. I like to note that donors whose giving capacities range from less than $100 a year up to $1 million have contributed to the campaign total. Working together, we can provide lasting benefits to future students and ensure that a KU Law degree continues to be synonymous with excellence. Outstanding faculty members constitute a large part of that reputation. We celebrate their research and writing in this issue (page 16), hitting mere highlights of the important contributions they make to legal scholarship and policy. The National Academies commissioned Professor Andrew Torrance to study the field of synthetic biology and recommend how the law should deal with the rapidly evolving science in the years to come. And one of our newest faculty members, Elizabeth Kronk, recently published an article exploring the problems standing in the way of energy development on tribal land and proposing two solutions. This type of scholarship directly benefits our students, who are learning the law from authorities in their respective fields. Being challenged in KU Law classrooms leads students to “think like a lawyer,” a skill that former Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson, L’84, extolled in his acceptance of the Distinguished Alumni Award (page 27) and one that prepared Larry Welch, L’61, to lead the Kansas Bureau of Investigation for 13 years (page 24). KU Law has been and will continue to be a place where thoughtful advocates and leaders are born.

News briefs by Mindie Paget
Casad Lecture disputes existence of nation state An award-winning expert in comparative law highlighted the importance of the state as a political and legal institution at the second Robert C. Casad Comparative Law Lecture at KU Law. Professor H. Patrick Glenn of McGill University delivered the public lecture “The Cosmopolitan State” on Sept. 14 in Green Hall. In the lecture, Glenn attempted to disprove the idea of a nation state and argued that all states are unique in both populations and laws. “There never has been and there never will be a nation state,” Glenn said. “So it is time we began to face the reality of this situation, that what was essentially a romantic French idea in the 18th century – that ‘la nation’ should have its own legal and political structures – is an idea which has failed.” Glenn has extensive experience in the world of comparative law. He is the former director of the Institute of Comparative SEPTLaw at McGill University and a member of both the Royal Society of Canada and the International Academy of Comparative Law. In 2000, his book “Legal Traditions of the World” (Oxford Glenn University Press, 2000) received the Grand Prize of the International Academy of Comparative Law. And in 2006, he received the Prix Léon-Gérin, a prestigious award from the Quebec government, in recognition of his contributions to comparative law over his career. The lecture series is named in honor of Professor Emeritus Robert Casad, who has been on the KU Law faculty since 1959 and is internationally known for his scholarship in comparative civil procedure. He retired from classroom teaching in 1997 but continues to conduct research and publish books and articles.

One of the top executives at the International Monetary Fund offered his view on the key ingredients of a durable solution to the eurozone crisis during the 2012 Diplomat’s Forum Lecture. Sean Hagan, general counsel and director of the legal department at the Washington D.C.-based IMF, delivered “The Eurozone Crisis: Defining the Path to Recovery” on Nov. 1 in Green Hall. “We live very much in a global village, and the interlocking network of trade and finance has brought tremendous benefits, including lifting millions out of poverty, but it has also created many risks,” Hagan said. “And a crisis in one region very quickly spills over into another, including, for example, in the United States.” He cited the following statistics: n About a fifth of U.S. exports go to Europe. n Before the crisis, the U.S. Standard & Poor’s Top 500 companies were earning 20 percent of their profits in Europe, and
European-owned companies employed approximately 3.5 million people in the United States. “The ability of the United States to restore robust growth and job creation after what is perhaps the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression really does depend on how this issue is resolved,” Hagan said. In his view, a sustainable eurozone recovery requires three distinct but interrelated conditions: 1) effective economic adjustment by individual members of the eurozone; 2) external financing to support the adjustment process; and 3) greater integration among eurozone members. The IMF is an organization of 188 countries working to increase financial stability, monetary cooperation and economic growth. In his current position, Hagan advises the Fund’s management, executive board and membership on all legal aspects of its operations. He has also published extensively on the law of the Fund and a broader range of legal issues involving the prevention and resolution of financial crisis.
Journey to J.D. exposes youth to legal education, careers
Deposition Skills Workshop celebrates fifth anniversary When enrollment opened for this year’s Deposition Skills Workshop, the class filled within three minutes. The popularity of the course, which takes place over four days each January, speaks to its value for students as they prepare for careers in practice. The innovative class pairs professor-led lectures with practitioner-led simulations in which students learn the finer points of taking and defending depositions. The workshop enrolled 18 students its first year; 48 students will participate in 2013, the fifth anniversary of the course. Ben Winters, L’12, can attest to the workshop’s practical value. He had been on the job at Gilliland & Hayes in Wichita for just three weeks when a partner assigned him to take his first professional deposition. He reported his experience to Professor Suzanne Valdez, who directs the workshop: “I cannot tell you how much I depended on what we learned in the Deposition Skills Workshop last January. I was so comfortable, and the partner attorney thought I was incredibly poised and confident and did a really good job. I know I couldn’t have done what I just did without that class and without your help in law school, so I wanted to tell you thank you, thank you, thank you!” KU Law now offers two intensive simulation courses – the Deposition Skills Workshop and the Expert Witness Skills Workshop – that allow students to gain hands-on experience in trial advocacy. Veteran attorneys teach both courses, providing invaluable guidance and feedback as students practice their skills with peers.
Sixteen high school students from across the state of Kansas got a taste of law school and careers in the legal profession during the third annual Journey to J.D. in June at KU Law. The camp is 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. The students experienced a rigorous week of studies and travel, beginning with a team-building exercise at the Adams Campus Outdoor Education Center. They spent three full days in the classroom, learning basic legal principles from current law students serving as teaching assistants. During a trip to Topeka, the students visited the Brown v. Board of Education site, toured the Capitol and a juvenile correctional facility, and dropped
in on the Kansas Judicial Center, where they met with Kansas Appeals Court Judge Karen Arnold-Burger, a 1982 graduate of the law school. They also visited Caleb Stegall, chief counsel to Gov. Sam Brownback and a 2000 graduate of the law school. The students also visited the law school’s Medical-Legal Partnership Clinic, the law firm of Husch Blackwell LLP and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and got a behindthe-scenes tour of Livestrong Sporting Park, home of Kansas City’s professional soccer club, Sporting Kansas City. 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. Major corporate sponsors of the 2012 camp included the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, Husch Blackwell LLP and Walmart.

was shortly after I began work as a registered nurse that a sense of dread would always come over me as I pulled my car into the vast empty parking lot of St. John’s Hospital. Flanked by nurses and physicians just arriving for a full night’s work, I’d make the long march toward my respective unit. Once inside, a quick scan of the badge would release a gust of sterile air as the intensive care’s double doors cracked open – a host of mechanical contrivances providing welcome with a chorus of alarms. Questions came with each soulless beep and whistle. “What will my patients be like?” “Am I capable of dealing with the problems that arise?” Or simply, “Can I stay awake?” It seemed that developing a slight nervous nausea prior to work became an inevitable routine that first year. Such trepidation wasn’t always the case. I started in 6A Medical Intensive Care Unit immediately following my graduation from nursing school. For me, the draw of this particular floor was its patient population. The Ozarks, my home, had long suffered from a serious drug problem, and substance abuse was in fact one of MICU’s specialties. I saw in this a noble work: an opportunity to help people change, and to be a solution to a serious problem within my community. Indeed, when the unit manager warned me about this specific patient group, I replied with enthusiasm that these were the very people I desired most to work with. The fact that so many of the people admitted to MICU for drug abuse were of my own generation only hardened my resolve and reaffirmed my growing crusader mentality. These grand goals, however, soon crashed against reality. I quickly realized that there was a hopeless déjà vu to this particular population. Addicts would appear half-dead, recover, then leave, only to reappear a month later noticeably unchanged. And they were all essentially the same. Most were angry, hate-filled, selfish, and unappreciative. Likewise, compassion, understanding, and reasoning (the very cornerstones of nursing) too often proved fruitless – seed thrown among thorns. In this aspect, the work seemed futile. Such frustration was further compounded by the dreadful seriousness of the situation. The destructive effects of such abuse were laid bare and unadulterated. I had worked only two weeks when I packed my first patient into a plastic bag. Sadly, this patient would be but one of many; and, in the wake of such reality shocks, I couldn’t help but feel disillusioned. Thus began the evening routine. Entrenchment eventually proved the cure for my spells of evening nerves. Once established, I found the

stood inches from the 2,000-year-old temple wall as SEPT painted Egyptian deities stared back at me, unblinking. I tried to focus on the artifact, which would have been the pride of the Nelson Atkins’ collection back home, but I could not see past the deplorable conditions that surrounded it. I turned around the room taking in the large windows, opened to Cairo’s polluted air, the boxes piled haphazardly along the walls, and the lack of guard or glass to protect the temple wall from curious hands. In that moment, the cultural property debates that had raged in my art history and classics courses came into sharp focus: This was not a dry discussion of law in a classroom in New York City; this was a global question with very real implications. Who decides if a country is fit to care for its antiquities, and who sets the standards? How do we protect artifacts that are already in international museums, and those that are looted from archaeological sites daily? What right do we have to take away the cultural history of a country, and will children learn to respect the past if they are only allowed replicas? These questions stayed with me as I completed my journey through Egypt and grew stronger with each class I took back in the states. I began seeking answers by volunteering with the organization Save Antiquities for Everyone or SAFE, helping to update their Facebook and Twitter pages with important petitions and news about looting and the protection of artifacts. The more I learned about the legal issues facing museums and archaeologists, the more I wanted to know. As the semester progressed I realized my educational background, my interest in art and the history of civilizations, my love of words, critical thinking, and problemsolving were all pointing me in one direction: law school. Pursuing a law degree is not only the logical next step, it is the step that aligns my strengths with my passions and turns both into a challenging and rewarding career. A wide range of courses in the liberal arts have served as an excellent foundation for the study of law. My courses emphasized a close reading of texts, approaching a problem from many angles, sharing and defending one’s thoughts through group discussion, and attempting to understand each viewpoint before coming to a conclusion. Most importantly, every class I took encouraged me to ask questions, to challenge assumptions, and to look past an author or speaker’s biases to gain a deeper understanding of the topic at hand. The importance of questioning long-held traditions became very clear to me in my travels abroad. Traveling

ran away to China. Instead of writing this essay (for the second time), I could be finishing my first year of law school. But here I sit, at my blue plastic desk in Baoji, China, looking out the window of my apartment at the incessant construction going on next door. My soon-to-be neighbor is a massive four-story shopping mall, and as I walked over to my window to count the growing number of floors, I looked back at my desk and felt ... ready. Who wants to be a lawyer, anyway? That’s the question I kept asking myself this time last year. I ran away to China because that question plagued me. I thought on it and thought on it. I thought about America’s litigious society. Behind every lawyer I pictured was a dark shadow, a predator feasting on clients, pumping the last billable opportunity from them while they washed their hands of the names, private details and pricey woes of their prey. I ran away to China because this was the idea in my head. China is a wonderfully frustrating, eye-opening and mind-changing, humbling place to live. As the months passed, I thought less and less about going back to school and more about myself. What I learned was that I love learning. I pored over my old Chinese textbooks, forcibly re-memorizing radicals so I could expand my vocabulary, going over the tones of simple words I’d already learned over and over again so that my pronunciation was understandable. I asked a Chinese co-worker for extra hours of Chinese lessons. It was addictive. The more I learned and improved, the more confidence I gained. Each day became more exciting, and I was hungry for more. It took a while before I saw outside of this tunnel vision, and when I did I realized how much more I wanted. I’ve made some wonderful friends in China. Chinese friends are a gift to treasure because they are the most generous, helpful and forgiving friends one could ask for. But each friendship has given me something I never expected. My Chinese friends have changed how I view the study of history. I accidentally stumbled on this train of thought because my friends and I are mutually curious about one another. Working in a school, I am constantly wondering how our private school compares to Chinese public school. From the testing systems to the class hours to the subjects taught and required reading, I’ve asked an insane number of questions. What my friends told me began to weave together with what I already knew. The more I’ve learned about Chinese academic life, the more I’ve begun to see where and why our worldviews overlap and clash. To understand a Chinese student is to better understand how a Chinese adult views the world. Chinese

2011, I applied and was offered admission to SEPT the University of Kansas School of Law, but was unable to secure the financial means to attend classes in the fall. I got married in May 2011, and applied for Adjustment of Status with the United States Citizenship and Immigrations Services, to change my status from that of an F-1 student to that of a permanent resident of the United States. The process of changing my immigration status took several months, and was not completed in time for me to be able to apply for financial aid for the fall semester. Taking out loans as an international student proved too costly and convoluted, so I decided to wait another year and apply again, this time as a permanent resident of the United States, and as a State of Kansas resident. One year was not much of a wait for someone who had been waiting for 10 years to fulfill the dream of going back to law school. Ten years before, in February of 2001, I walked into my first day of class as a law student. The hot Brazilian summer was coming to an end, and I was ready to dedicate my life to my legal studies for the next five years. The fact that I had been one of the brightest students of my high school was validated by my strong performance in the first-ever installment of the federal government’s pilot program of standardized exams, known as ENEM. On account of my ENEM scores, Universidade de Salvador Law School offered me early admission, which even brought a reporter from a local newspaper to the front steps of my high school, where I gave her a brief interview on my recent accomplishments. Although in the Brazilian educational system law is studied at the undergraduate level, most students are only able to gather the necessary credentials to secure a spot after trying for a few cycles. Not me. I was 17, fearless and ready. Or so I thought. My legal career in Brazil lasted three years. I studied hard, and worked part-time as an intern for the Federal Justice System in my state, in a position that was conquered through a gruesomely competitive process. I dedicated what little free time I had to doing some pro bono work in the rural community of Feira de Santana. Deep inside, however, all that early responsibility started to weigh down on me. I needed time to think about my future and consider different professional options, but I did not want to waste all the time and effort I had put into my education up to that point. Not surprisingly, when I was awarded a full scholarship under the Georgia Rotary Student Program, which brings just over 100 international students into Georgia universities every year, I did not hesitate to

Patrick Springer ICU to be a rewarding experience and gained a true insight into one of the major problems facing our society. For the moment, I relaxed my lofty ideals, and instead took the work for what it was: damage control. Revive, stabilize, and move out. In the process, I learned a key lesson: Concern yourself not with what you can’t change, but with that which you can, and do this to the best of your ability. That’s not to say, though, I was wholly content in this position. I still wanted to hack at the root, yet could only swing at the limbs. It seemed that the patient problems I dealt with on a nightly basis were but the end result of a much greater problem, the solution to which the hospital was incapable of providing. As an ICU nurse, I was simply unable to get under the surface of the present emergency. With this in mind, I returned to school after a year on the job, though not to study nursing. Following a great deal of research, I decided instead to study criminology. To my wife and friends such a change, of course, appeared as a mid20s crisis. They weren’t totally wrong. After countless “midnight-codes,” attending to nauseating situations, and fighting patients endowed with drug-induced strength, there was no denying that I was ready for a change. Above this, however, a study in the causes of crime and delinquency appeared as a way to gain a better understanding of my patients, and seemed far more relevant to my work than any discourse on Florence Nightingale. Indeed, continued work experience, now combined with schooling, began to yield answers and explanations. A pattern emerged among my patients: deviant and criminal backgrounds; mental illness; extreme family dysfunction, violence, and molestation; and parents lost through death, desertion, or imprisonment. Over the past six months, I’ve gained an even greater understanding. This past April, I left Medical Intensive and began work as an RN in a psychiatric and behavioral health clinic. Here, drugs and addiction are the chief issue, and all those underlying patterns I noted while at 6A have

come to the forefront. With the patients out of bed and off the ventilator, the driving forces behind their addictions now come under direct scrutiny. Likewise, being so deeply involved with such personal issues has revealed the seemingly infinite complexities behind substance abuse. It’s impossible to determine the cause of drug addiction; however, with almost every case, there lies a soured well in the past. I’ve come to realize that, whether self-inflicted or not, this problem is so often the byproduct of a major lapse in justice somewhere unseen. Pursuing a career in law first came to mind following my return to school, as the result of pairing work experience with the study of our criminal justice system. Furthermore, being a personal witness to the catastrophic effects of drug abuse has left me with a passionate desire to see such injustices corrected before they carry all those involved into oblivion. I cannot assert what my position will be upon finishing law school. I can say with certainty, however, that I want to be an advocate for those within my community who suffer under these desperate circumstances. Such terrible issues require great efforts. As a student at the University of Kansas School of Law, as well as a future lawyer, I hope to be a part of that effort.
Hillary Nicholas through Egypt brought the question of cultural property alive, and standing in the beautiful new, and pointedly empty, museum at the base of the Parthenon made the question very real. I want to pursue a legal education at a challenging school that encourages its students to ask questions and seek unconventional answers, and I am excited to know there is such an exceptional school located in my own backyard – the University of Kansas. The university’s concentration in intellectual property law would be an excellent fit for my interests, along with courses such as Law and the Arts, International Trade Law, and Intro to Copyright in Literary and Artistic Works. The questions surrounding intellectual property intrigue me, and the ability to study in Lawrence, a city
I love, at a school I have grown up proud of, would be a fulfilling next step. My background in archaeology has given me the opportunity to travel the world and see firsthand the ability law has to cross borders and encompass many fields of study in one. I am confident that the University of Kansas School of Law is the right school for me, and that my strengths, personality, and interests will make me an excellent addition to the Fall 2012 student body.
Kasey Considine students are hardworking, they are in school far longer than American students, they study English for close to 10 years and, in order to get into not only the best universities, but the best high schools and middle schools, they are tested so thoroughly that even I, a native English speaker, have to look up the grammar points they are required to know. They are required to read the Communist Manifesto. But ask a Chinese person where Cambodia is, and they are confused. They don’t know who Pol Pot is. Ask where Egypt is, and the answer might be America (at least that’s what one of my students offered as an answer). They know so much, yet the world they learn about is so limited. Understanding what they know and what has been important for them to know has been a turning point in my understanding of China. I find it absolutely fascinating. So what does this have to do with law school? Well, to begin with, law is not the predatory shadow behind each lawyer as I previously imagined. Our society may feel like that sometimes. But the care I’ve taken with my Chinese friends to ask them about why they feel and think the way they do is not the same care I’ve take in my own country. American society’s perception of law is not what the study of law is about. I want law because it will be a new and tremendous challenge. I want to study the language of law, how it’s translated, and how that translation shapes our society. I want law because it’ll break me down and open my eyes to things I could never see, the same way China has. I want law because I want to hone my
analytical skills and improve my writing skills. I want law because I want to ask the right questions. I want law because I want to construct an argument that makes me an authority, not just a storyteller. I want law because I want to be trained as a critical thinker. But I want more than law. I want history, too. I want to color in the broad strokes of historical context with first-hand stories about the people who are living now, the people who are experiencing the effects of history as it has already transformed society. I want to dive further into history to see how other worldviews perceive the American worldview. I want the University of Kansas School of Law because I want a depth of understanding other schools can’t offer. I want to join the joint-degree program and earn my J.D. and master’s in East Asian Languages and Cultures because I don’t want my worldview to be limited.
Tamara Combs follow my heart and my mind: I transferred all of my credits to Armstrong Atlantic State University and dove into a completely new life. Living and studying in the United States afforded me the chance to expand my horizons and mature my choices. I learned to dedicate my efforts to both curricular and extracurricular activities, where I often rose to positions of leadership. As I flourished academically, I felt naturally inclined to spend most of my time among diverse people, where I could explore different insights and discover new points of view. Furthermore, I cherished the ease with which my peers and professors engaged in debate and dissected issues. Three years after it started, my rewarding undergraduate experience culminated with a magna cum laude graduation in December 2007. Armed with the broad toolbox of a political scientist, I had the option to follow many career paths, and city and regional planning was one of the most interesting choices. Being inherently interdisciplinary, planning tapped into my passion for seeking different perspectives and avenues to
ameliorate the lives of the least privileged sectors of society by influencing public policy to improve the environment where they live. But beyond technical and professional knowledge that would allow me to become a city planner, graduate school gave me an invaluable set of skills that makes me a competitive candidate for the University of Kansas School of Law. In the planning program at Clemson University, I sharpened my ability to think critically and analytically, and learned to solve problems, synthesize information and build arguments on my feet, while standing in front of an audience of stakeholders. The very large workloads imposed on me not only tested my self-motivation and improved my self-management abilities, but also allowed me to collaborate, and learn to work efficiently both as an individual and as part of a team. When a former professor (and one of the most brilliant people I have ever met) decided to move to Lawrence to accept a job with the University of Kansas starting in the fall of 2011, she encouraged me and my now-husband to apply to a Ph.D. program and pursue a degree under her advising. Deep inside, however, I knew I wanted to go to law school instead. We decided that my husband should take on the offer and start his doctoral studies that fall, and that I should follow my dreams. KU Law is hard to resist: a strong regional university that is proud of its deep commitment to diversity, and whose host city often figures among the 10 best college towns in the nation. Because I intend to concentrate my efforts on topics like land use, energy, environment, public interest and international law, I am especially attracted to KU Law’s offerings in those areas, in particular in environmental and natural resources law and international and comparative law. Furthermore, I am eager to lend my ability to speak Portuguese and Spanish fluently to the Immigration/Asylum Law Clinic, which touches an area of practice that I am just starting to consider. My primary goal after concluding my legal studies is to strengthen the field of city and regional planning with more and better legal advice, seeking ways to
combine legal and planning strategies that promote equity globally. My recent work and involvement in philanthropy both in Douglas County and in the Greater Atlanta region has made me even more passionate about public interest, and about protecting the equitable treatment of the most vulnerable population groups. I desire to carry this deep-seated concern for those who need the most at the core of my development as a lawyer. The unwavering commitment I make every day to tolerance and kindness is the aspect of my character of which I am the most proud. These values were instilled in me during childhood and have never faltered in moments when I was faced with vanity and competitiveness. The understanding and appreciation of what is different comes from the fact that I myself am different: born and raised in another country, ethnically and racially ambiguous (like most Brazilians), fluent in multiple languages and a seasoned world traveler. KU School of Law will benefit from my presence in the upcoming class because my perspective brings in a foreign framework, in the broad sense of the expression. As the differences between me and the other students surface in the halls and classrooms of KU Law, ideas will be oxygenated and old perspectives will be submitted to new analyses, until the truth – a better truth – emerges from this debate. In the end, all that matters is the kindness that allows us to listen and learn from each other, and the tolerance that makes it possible for us to disagree, respectfully. For my unshakeable belief in kindness, and in the diversity that supports its beauty, I am convinced I would be a valuable addition to KU Law’s educational environment. Eleven years after the first time I walked into my first day of class as a law student, I feel ready to reclaim my legal career. This time around, I have the maturity, the work ethic, the communication skills, the professional tact, and the intellectual ripeness I lacked when I was 17. I hope the University of Kansas School of Law will grant me the chance – and the honor – to close the circle.

RESEARCH: Torrance advises National Academies on seemingly sci-fi topic synthetic biology Though it may sound like science fiction, the day is coming when a TV’s pixels are light-emitting yeast organisms, or antibodies can be designed from scratch to seek out and kill cancer cells while leaving healthy cells untouched. When science has the capability of building new genes, cells and life forms from scratch, it’s natural there will be concern about the legal and ethical implications. KU Law Professor Andrew Torrance was commissioned by the National Academies to study the field of synthetic biology and recommend how the law should deal with the rapidly evolving science in the years to come. Torrance, who is also a visiting scholar at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a fellow of the Gruter Institute, was asked to prepare a
report on synthetic biology, standards setting and intellectual property by the National Academies, an independent, nonprofit organization that provides expert advice to Congress and others on science, engineering and medicine. Torrance asked Linda Kahl, a SynBERC Fellow at Stanford University, to
co-author the report. Torrance presented their findings at the National Academies headquarters in Washington, D.C., at the beginning of October. The report will inform the National Academies’ larger study on the topic and is available for free online. “There is considerable interest in knowing if the field has progressed to the point where everyone can agree on a set of beneficial standards,” Torrance said. ���If done right, standards can encourage open innovation, in which it is easy for many people — even amateurs — to participate in the field. A well-governed standards setting process can ensure that no single party can use its patents to dominate others. A prevailing ethos in synthetic biology is democratizing biology and welcoming many into the field to promote better and faster innovation.”
RESEARCH: Kronk offers solutions to spur energy development on tribal land People of nearly all political persuasions agree the United States needs to do more to develop new energy resources. A provision of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 was specifically designed to encourage energy development on tribal land, yet not one tribe has entered an agreement to take on such development. KU Law Professor Elizabeth Kronk has authored an article exploring the problems standing in the way of such energy development on native land and proposing two solutions. Kronk published “Tribal Energy Resource Agreements: The Unintended ‘Great Mischief for Indian Energy Development’ and the Resulting Need for Reform” in the Pace Environmental Law Review as part of a series exploring energy development on native land. Many tribes have expressed interest in developing energy, and the
16 KU LAW MAGAZINE
federal government has acted in part to help make it a reality. “It’s potentially a win-win situation,” said Kronk, director of KU’s Tribal Law & Government Center. “It would spur economic development for tribes and help address the question of where we, as a country, are going to get our energy.”
To address the fact that no tribes to date have entered into a TERA, Kronk recommends two solutions. The first would be to re-establish federal liability under TERAs. If the federal government is going to mandate environmental review and certain administrative functions, then it should maintain liability, which is consistent with the federal trust responsibility, Kronk said. Plus, many tribes may not be in a financial situation to take on major energy development projects themselves. In the alternative, another option would be to remove all federal requirements of the tribes in TERAs. That would allow for true tribal sovereignty in energy development. “Let’s truly let the tribes be sovereign under this arrangement. Once you have a TERA set, let’s let the tribes make the decisions,” Kronk said.

Career Services forging stronger connections with students, employers By Arturo Thompson
hen I returned to KU Law in October 2011 to assume the role of assistant dean for career services, I knew there would be a great deal to learn and big challenges to face. Over the past year, we have made changes in staff; created new programs and eliminated some old ones; initiated an extensive outreach program to employers across the state, region and country; and worked with other departments at the law school and the university to develop a more coordinated and comprehensive set of programs and messages. For students, one major change has been our initial contact. We now typically spend close to an hour with students the first time they meet with us one-on-one. We believe it essential to establishing a meaningful understanding of the students’ interests and for us to assess their communication and networking skills. Almost every one of these inaugural meetings begins with the same three questions: Who are you? Where are you from? How did you get to KU? We see these questions as the start of one extended conversation that will last all three years of law school and beyond – a conversation that may range from personal to professional issues, academics to interviewing. The process is intense and time-consuming, but essential if we want to be able to better match students with potential employers, improve the employment rate over the long haul, and meet our obligations to all stakeholders. This same focus on establishing one-to-one relationships extends to alumni and employers. We believe that before we can say to them that they should hire our students and trust our assessments of them, we have to show our personal commitment. Over the past year, we have made numerous trips across the great state of Kansas, vising alumni, companies, firms and judges from Colby to Liberal, Salina to Wichita, and many places in between. We have visited stakeholders from D.C. to New York, Dallas to Denver. Our message in all cases is clear: We are committed to each of them on an individual basis, we will not ask them to participate in our efforts unless we are willing to put skin

in the game, and we will be back every year to see how we are doing and how we can improve. We have created a Rural and Solo Program designed to promote jobs outside the big five counties in Kansas by giving students a better understanding of how amazing these opportunities and communities can be. Participants are also given skills training, designed to introduce them to the critical business and operations issues involved in opening and maintaining a successful law practice. Recently I added the role of director of diversity and inclusion to my duties, expanding my focus from getting students ready to succeed after school to also fostering the school’s connections to highly qualified diverse and disadvantaged candidates. We have begun to engage with national efforts designed to focus high school students on the potential for a career as a lawyer. We are also in the process of developing an intense, weeklong training program designed to take college freshmen and sophomores through a law school experience, including participating in a moot court competition, and thereby improving the law school’s ability to capture the very best of those diverse students already in the region. On a personal note, it has been a great joy to be back at KU Law, surrounded by friends and colleagues who are all committed to the success of our students and the school. I cannot imagine a better place to be in my career or a better time to be here. I look forward to our shared success and to working with everyone, including you, as we continue to build and improve an institution we love.

‘Beyond Cold Blood’

Former KBI director Larry Welch, L’61, recounts bureau’s history from Great Depression to BTK By Mindie Paget
arry Welch’s path to the head of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation began at his childhood desk in the tiny town of St. John, Kansas. That’s where he penned impassioned letters to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover expressing his desire to one day become a special agent. His youthful mind thrilled at the responses he received. In retrospect, he realizes they were just form letters. “They were from different special agents in charge of the Kansas City office, and they pretty much said the same thing through junior high, high school and undergraduate at KU: The best way to get into the FBI is with

an accounting degree or a law degree,” Welch recalls. “As my wife would attest, the accounting degree didn’t hold much hope for me.” So Welch charted a course toward his dream job with a pit stop at KU Law, where he graduated in 1961 and immediately landed a position with the FBI. Thirtythree years and nine cities later – including eight years as director of the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center in Hutchinson – Welch took the helm of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and eventually became the bureau’s second-longest-serving director before retiring in 2007.
Throughout his career, Welch developed a deep appreciation for the KBI. He couldn’t understand why no one had written an official history of the organization, so he set out to do just that in his retirement. Still as dedicated a writer as the boy who sent letters to the FBI throughout his youth, he returned to pen and paper to craft his first book, “Beyond Cold Blood: The KBI from Ma Barker to BTK,” released in September by the University Press of Kansas. The 374-page book details the KBI’s participation in major cases from its 1939 inception – a response to a spike in bank robberies and cattle rustling in the wake of the Great Depression – to the first decade of the 21st century, when the bureau helped the Wichita Police Department bring down the state’s most notorious serial killer. Welch selected only the most unique and pivotal cases for the book. His favorite is the case in which 78-year-old cattle rancher Goldie Millar disappeared amid mysterious circumstances in Kiowa County, Kan. Investigators never recovered her remains from her house, which had burned to the ground. Nevertheless, a jury found Goldie’s grandson, Mike Pyle, guilty of her murder. “Today my wife will tell you that if we’re watching ‘Law & Order’ on TV and somebody says, ‘Well you know you can’t get a conviction without a body,’ Shirley will try to beat me to, ‘The heck you can’t,’” Welch says. “Of course now in Kansas we’ve done it eight or nine times, as I recall. But always State v. Pyle is cited. I think that’s really an underappreciated case.” Another one of Welch’s favorites is the Samaritan case, where a judge in Kansas City believed that two young women had been wrongfully convicted of robbing a liquor store in a case that he presided over. He contacted the KBI to see if an agent might agree with him. The two Kansas defendants were later exonerated and released from prison. “That’s justice,” Welch says. “We’re not just out to prosecute people; we’re out to solve the case and to identify and prosecute only the guilty. DNA is a classic example of that. There are a heck of a lot more people eliminated from suspicion or exonerated by DNA than are convicted.” Dennis Rader was not so lucky. It was a KBI scientist, Sindey Schueler, who used DNA to irrefutably connect Rader to eight heinous murders in the Wichita area from 1974 to 1991, thus confirming that Rader and the infamous BTK killer were one and the same. “Then you have to go another step and appreciate the work those Wichita officers did – in pre-DNA days – of collecting and retaining the evidence from those cases that permitted that identification,” Welch says.
Throughout his book, Welch consistently credits the hundreds of agents, sheriffs, police officers, forensic scientists, state officials and civilians who worked for or with the KBI in pursuit of justice. Perhaps the most stalwart of those civilians was Jeanette Stauffer, whose 23-year-old daughter Shannon Martin was murdered in 2001 during a trip to Costa Rica to collect ferns for her honors thesis research at the University of Kansas. Welch sent KBI agent Larry Thomas to the Central American nation, and his work there marked the first time a Kansas law enforcement officer helped investigate and prosecute the killers of a Kansas citizen in a foreign country. Always by his side was Stauffer, who made 17 trips to Costa Rica in her tireless quest to seek justice for her daughter.
“When they shot down those two criminals in front of the Macksville bank, all of a sudden the state exploded with praise and acclaim for the KBI. That case guaranteed the existence of the KBI.” Long before dispatching agents beyond Kansas borders, however, the KBI sealed its future at home, and any history of the bureau would not be complete without two essential cases, Welch says. First is the Macksville bank robbery case. Two years after the Kansas Legislature created the KBI, five career criminals tunneled their way out of the state penitentiary in Lansing, and the attorney general challenged the KBI to capture them. They snared the first three relatively easily. Tracking down the remaining two fugitives involved highrisk undercover police work and, eventually, a shootout in downtown Macksville, Kan., where the KBI had learned the duo planned to rob a bank. “When they shot down those two criminals in front of the Macksville bank, all of a sudden the state exploded with praise and acclaim for the KBI,” Welch says. “That case guaranteed the existence of the KBI.” And then the Clutter case brought the bureau international acclaim, thanks to Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood,” the best-selling book that recounts the 1959 murders of a Kansas family on their farm near Holcomb. Alvin Dewey, the resident special agent in Garden City, led the KBI’s successful investigation, which eventually yielded the convictions and executions of Richard Hickock and Perry Smith. To this day, the Clutter case remains the KBI’s most famous. While homicide cases have always been the bureau’s

Medallion honorees The law school honored recipients of the James Woods Green Medallion at a dinner on May 5 in Lawrence. The medallion, named in honor of the law school’s first dean, recognizes those whose cumulative contributions to the school exceed $25,000. This year’s honorees are pictured above with their medallions. Recipients Shannon L. Spangler, L’87, and Michael Spangler; and Roger Johnson, L’67, on behalf of the Arne L.

so-called “bread and butter,” the KBI also assists local law enforcement agencies with cases involving kidnapping, rape, methamphetamine, and cybercrimes such as child pornography and identity theft. The more complex the case, Welch says, the more likely local law enforcement will call the KBI for help. As of 2007, 73 percent of all Kansas law enforcement agencies had 10 or fewer full-time officers, and 52 percent had five or fewer, according to the Central Registry of the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center (KLETC). Welch always did his best to support those struggling agencies via the KBI. During his tenure, the bureau created two additional forensics laboratories, in Pittsburg and Kansas City, and opened another regional office in Pittsburg. The KBI also achieved National Forensic Accreditation on its first try, beating even the FBI to that elusive pinnacle. In response to the brutal rape and murder of Pittsburg State University student Stephanie Schmidt by a convicted rapist, the KBI helped Kansas become the first state to put photos and addresses of registered sex offenders on the Internet. These accomplishments were shepherded by Welch, ever an advocate for the people of Kansas and the state’s law enforcement community. After 25 years in the FBI — some of it spent as the top agent in Wichita, Kan. — and eight years as director of the KLETC before joining the KBI, Welch knew almost every sheriff and police chief in the state. “I don’t think that there is any law enforcement person in the state of Kansas who has more respect from law enforcement people than Larry Welch,” says Bob Stephan, the former attorney general who appointed Welch KBI director in 1994. “I mean he is on a pedestal that is so high it’s almost unbelievable.” Welch often called on his admirers to lobby their legislators for additional resources. The news media were also frequent allies when meth labs, for example, were ravaging Kansas communities and the KBI needed more agents to wage the battle. Of course Welch himself wrote letters to governors, attorneys general, legislators and others to advocate the bureau’s mission. His KU Law education helped prepare him for that task. “I certainly learned a way of thinking and a way of writing – how to use the fewest words to say the most,” he says. “And I know it gave me more confidence.” Welch highly recommends law enforcement as a career option for law students, whose degrees would serve them well in the field or in administration. “My dad was a very quiet-spoken man who seldom gave me advice. When I was in law school, he told me, ‘Find a job that you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.’ I didn’t really appreciate what he meant at the time,” Welch says. “But it turns out I did that three times. I was very, very lucky.”
Alumni earn law school’s highest honor By Sarah Shebek
t’s not often that the former governor of Kansas and one of the best-known figures in the state’s banking industry are in the same room, but this year’s Distinguished Alumni Award ceremony accomplished just that. Mark Parkinson, L’84, and Charles Hostetler, L’63, received the law school’s highest honor at a ceremony on May 5. Both have forged outstanding careers since turning the tassel as KU Law graduates. And for Parkinson, his success is a credit to the critical thinking skills he honed in the classroom. “We were incentivized not just to look at the obvious, but to look at the things that were nuanced,” he said. “In the real world, people who succeed and make a difference tend to be people who see all the possibilities.” Parkinson has made achievement look easy. He graduated summa cum laude from Wichita State University and continued his strong performance at KU Law, graduating first in his class. He also cultivated an outstanding moot court career, culminating in a first-place team finish in the National Moot Court Competition in New York. Upon graduation, Parkinson started in solo practice before winning a spot in the Kansas House of Representatives and, two years later, the Kansas Senate. He also devoted 10 years to enhancing seniors’ quality of life by opening senior living facilities in Kansas and Missouri. In 2006, Kathleen Sebelius appointed him lieutenant governor, and he became the 45th governor of Kansas when Sebelius left her position for an appointment as secretary of health and human services. “In politics, thinking like a lawyer means that when you walk into a room and two people disagree on 95 percent of topics, you find the 5 percent that they do agree on,” he said. Since Parkinson left government, he has served as president and CEO of the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living, which represents more than
11,000 nursing homes, assisted living residences, and facilities for the care of people with mental retardation and developmental disabilities. “I will cling to my more romantic view that Shakespeare was wrong – the world doesn’t need fewer lawyers,” he said. “In the areas of art and design and public policy and international relations and certainly politics, we don’t need fewer lawyers; we need more people who think like lawyers.” As a graduate of Kansas State University and a lifelong Manhattan resident, Charlie Hostetler felt no initial pull toward Lawrence for law school. Working as a sports reporter in college, he fell in love with Boulder, Colo., on trips covering Wildcat football games and nearly ended up out of state. But cost won out, and he chose KU. “I made one of the best decisions I ever made: I came here for school,” he said. Like Parkinson, Hostetler participated in moot court and served on the Kansas Law Review during his time at KU. After graduation he began a very long and successful career in the banking and insurance industries. “My feeling when I got out of school and I went into business in Manhattan was that I had a great affection for both K-State and KU,” he said. Hostetler has successfully combined his love for both schools over the years. He taught business law and insurance at Kansas State University. He served on the Kansas Board of Regents from 1989 to 1992 and is a past member of KU Law’s Board of Governors. And every spring, he sponsors and hosts a dinner in Manhattan for prospective law students. Loyal to his state as well as his educators, Hostetler dedicated his entire professional career to serving the Manhattan community. He was the former chairman of the First Savings Bank of Manhattan and currently serves as president of Charlson & Wilson Insurance Agency Inc.

“In the real world, people who succeed and make a difference tend to be people who see all the possibilities.” – Mark Parkinson, L’84 “He has spent a lifetime using his talents, training and treasure to make that community, its institutions, the state that supports him, and in our case, the law school, better places,” said Professor Mike Davis, who introduced Hostetler. Although Hostetler has received a number of accolades throughout his distinguished career, he remains humble in the face of his accomplishments. KU Law is a “special place,” he said, and the honor stood out. “This is one of the nicest things that’s ever happened to me.”

Court date Alumni get intimate look at high court during KU Law swearing-in ceremony
ith only about 80 cases appearing before the Supreme Court of the United States each year, it’s a difficult feat to step into the nation’s most prestigious courtroom. But not only did a group of KU Law alumni do just that this summer, they also met some of the stars of the Court in person. “We were really treated well to meet both Justice Roberts and Justice Thomas,” said Mauricio Uribe, L’98, a partner at Knobbe Martens Olson & Bear in Seattle. “I was really impressed with how much time both justices took to talk with our group and introduce themselves.” This summer, a group of alumni were granted the ultimate networking opportunity: the chance to be sworn in before the Supreme Court justices, meet them in person, and tour the sacred grounds of the courtroom. Seventeen alumni converged in Washington, D.C., in June for the two-day event, which included

a rooftop cocktail reception at the W Hotel on Sunday night and the ceremony the next morning. “The Supreme Court has always been the Holy Grail; it’s my favorite building in D.C.,” said Robin Webb, L’96. “So it was more the combination of not only being in the Supreme Court and seeing the inner workings, but then you add in the personalities of the justices and their presence.” The opportunity to be sworn in before the Supreme Court is certainly limited, and KU Law last offered an admission ceremony event in 2003, when Professor Steve McAllister was dean. This time around, Noelle Uhler, director of external relations, did most of the planning, including contacting the entire alumni base a year in advance to gauge interest. “I got an email from Noelle saying that they were going to do another trip, and I said, ‘Oh, I’m going, I’m going.’ And she said, ‘No, it’s in a year,’” said Heather Bussing, employment attorney for Bussing Law. “I was so excited, and it turned out to be absolutely perfect because this is the 25th anniversary of my being admitted to practice and I also turned 50 this year in July.” The event was enticing enough that some alumni made the trip from overseas, including Miao Lin, L’08, and Heiko Heppner, L’08, who both practice at Clifford Chase LLP in Frankfurt, Germany. “I thought it would be a great opportunity to see the Supreme Court from the inside, including the Supreme Court justices, of course,” Heppner said. And alumni certainly got an insider’s perspective. The day of the swearing-in ceremony, the group and their families met in a private room to have breakfast, take photos, and hear from the clerk about the day’s events. Then they filed through rounds of security and into the courtroom for the day’s proceedings. It wasn’t an ordinary day at the Court – the Obamacare decision would soon be issued, and the room was packed. “Right when the clock struck 10, the judges filed out and it was amazing to see that they are just human beings,” Bussing said. “It was a ‘Wizard of Oz’ moment as the little man came out from behind the curtain.” Various groups from across the country took part in the swearing-in ceremony, and McAllister did the motion for the KU Law assembly. Chief Justice Roberts banged the gavel, granting the motion, and after all the groups were admitted, everyone stood, raised their right hands, and swore the oath to the Court. “Being able to enter the Supreme Court room and being there and standing up was very inspiring,” Uribe said. “Having my son hear my name called out was actually my favorite thing.” The proceedings came to a close, but the experience was not over yet. Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Thomas, who has ties to KU Law through former clerk Steve McAllister, took the time to stop and meet everyone back in the lawyer’s lounge. Thomas made sure to have personal conversations with each lawyer in attendance. “He had a lot to say, and he really took some time to

talk to everyone, which I found very nice of him,” Heppner said. “That was very enjoyable to see that he is basically a normal person like anyone else, even though he has a lot of political power.” After the meet and greet, the group toured the courtroom in depth and heard more about its history. With that, a whirlwind two days drew to a close – but only after providing alumni the experience of a lifetime. “I would very much recommend it,” Uribe said. “Even if you never have the privilege of presenting in front of the Court, it’s such a fantastic experience. And if you can share it with family, it’s a great educational experience.” “It’s just fun to know that now you’re admitted to the Supreme Court, whether you end up practicing or not,” Webb said. “Because of Professor McAllister’s ties to the Court, you as a participant get an insider’s knowledge of the Court and see behind the curtain, so to speak, and that’s not what a lot of individuals get to see.” Although almost 10 years elapsed between Supreme Court admission events, Uhler said the school hopes to start offering the opportunity once every other year. Bussing couldn’t make the original trip in 2003 but had no regrets signing up the second time around: “It’s one of those days where it just feels great to be a lawyer.”

“All of us benefited from KU Law being such a strong school. Ideally, we want other people who grow up in similar communities in the state to have that opportunity, too. We want the law school to continue to be a strong school and a great launching pad for graduates to have successful careers.” Lydia Beebe, B.S. 1974, J.D. 1977; and Chuck Doyle, B.S. 1975, J.D. 1978; San Francisco, Calif. $1 million – $500,000 outright, Beebe/ Doyle Family Scholarship and classroom renovation; $500,000 bequest, to enhance their scholarship fund
“The KU law school has lagged behind its peer institutions in charitable donations for scholarship support, and that has an effect on everything. The better the students you get, the better the job placement you’re going to have. And then, of course, as you place people in higher numbers, you’re going to attract more and even better students.” David Elkouri, B.S. 1975, J.D., 1978; and Debbi Elkouri; Wichita, Kan., and Houston,Texas $800,000 – $300,000 outright and $500,000 bequest, Elkouri Family Scholarship Fund, full-ride renewable scholarships for students from Kansas

Kristen Toner, L’06, and Kevin Kelly, L’89
“I benefited greatly from the education I received at KU, both undergraduate and law, and want to do what I can to make it possible for others to benefit. In these days of decreasing state support for our state institutions of higher education, it is especially important that those of us who are able financially support the programs which are important to us, to the school, and to the state and society in general.” Chuck Frickey, B.S. 1966, J.D. 1969; and Diane Frickey; Oberlin, Kan. $30,000 outright and $30,000 charitable gift annuity, Philip P.

Meet the Faces of KU Law fundraising
“Charitable giving is generally important to me because I think it’s both vital to the community and good for the soul to give back. Especially as a student paying in-state tuition, I received a world-class legal education and, therefore, incredible value from KU Law.” Robert Neigert, B.A. 2001, J.D. 2005, Austin,Texas $1,000 outright, a first-time gift that qualifies for the Waldron Matching Gift Program 6
