The University of Kansas School of Law has launched a series of e-communication initiatives designed to strengthen connections with our alumni and be more conscientious about the environmental impact of printing and mailing. The first issue of the KU Law Brief, a quarterly electronic newsletter, hit alumni inboxes in March. The publication features stories about the school and its faculty, students and graduates. You can find an archive of past issues in the Publications section of our Web site, www.law.ku.edu, where back issues of the KU Law Magazine are also available in electronic form. About the same time, we started sending HTML e-mail invitations to alumni for KU Law events across the country, and Dean Gail Agrawal has issued several Dean’s Notes to report special news. In addition to these targeted efforts, the online face of KU Law got a major upgrade with the launch of a new Web site in September. The revamped home page centers on a photo slideshow that highlights law school news and events, and a more sophisticated visual approach carries throughout the site.
But it’s not just a cosmetic upgrade. Information is easier to find and presented more efficiently with the help of streamlined navigation and site architecture. That means fewer clicks for you, prospective students, members of the media and other visitors to find information. The Alumni section, easily accessible from a link on the home page, contains elements of interest to KU Law graduates, including stories, photo galleries and a form for updating your records and submitting news. The Web site is an ongoing project, but already we’ve added an archive of photo galleries and our first podcasts and videos. Look for more podcasts and videos of classes and public lectures down the road.
As we move ahead with digital communication and scale back printing and mailing, it’s more important than ever that we have your current e-mail address. Please update your alumni records so you don’t miss any invitations or news from your legal alma mater. Here’s how:

Chief justice John Roberts learned a discomforting lesson
KU Law student Brian Nye argues during the moot court finals before a distinguished panel of judges that includes, from left, U.S. District Judge John Lungstrum, U.S. Circuit Judge Deanell Tacha, Chief Justice John Roberts, U.S. Circuit Judge Mary Beck Briscoe and Kansas Supreme Court Justice Carol Beier.
on his first day at the U.S. Supreme Court. He went to lunch with the other justices after morning arguments, expecting to discuss the case before the Court. He realized quickly that his colleagues reserved that sort of business for chambers and conference rooms. At lunch, they talked about the lawyers. “It’s sobering after arguing before them 39 times to sit down and watch them say, ‘I can’t believe what so and so did’ and ‘What a horrible answer to this question,’” Roberts recalled during a question-and-answer session with University of Kansas law and business students and faculty in May. The anecdote probably offered little comfort to Brian Nye, a second-year law student in the audience. Later that day, he would argue before Roberts and four other distinguished judges in the final round of KU’s moot court competition. No pressure. Clearly, however, Nye paid attention to the rest of the Chief’s response to the student who asked how he would advise future lawyers interested in appellate advocacy. “First of all, just answer the question,” Roberts said. “Of course justices are going to ask generally hostile questions. There will be questions you’d rather they didn’t ask in terms of presenting your case, but they know that. They know it’s a question that’s difficult. If you immediately try to avoid it, as so many lawyers do, you erect a wall between yourself and the justices. He’s asking you a question because he wants to get an answer, and he may want to make a point. It doesn’t mean he’s going to rule against you.” Nye learned this firsthand during the moot court finals. Roberts and the other judges threw him a barrage of challenges, interrupting his argument and dissecting it while more than 120 people watched. Nye responded every time and held his ground. After deliberations, Nye and his co-counsel, Daniel Morris, were declared the winning team, defeating Michael Crabb and Lindsey Heinz. Nye was named Best Oral Advocate. “Hearing a Supreme Court justice telling an audience comprised largely of future attorneys that we need to be forthcoming when asked tough questions was refreshing,” Nye said. “Instinctively, I never want to display any weakness in my position, but the judges know the weakness and I will make more of an impression by acknowledging the weakness and then responding with my position’s strengths.”

Roberts is the first sitting chief justice to visit the University of Kansas, but the law school boasts a strong history of bringing justices to Green Hall. Six have visited over the last few decades, and the law school has sent five graduates to the Court as clerks. McAllister, who clerked for two Supreme Court justices, said bringing them to campus humanizes them. “When justices visit KU Law, I have always strived to make them as available as possible to the students,” he said. “It is important to let students see that justices are real people, to let them learn firsthand how the justices do their work and view their positions and, hopefully, maybe some students will come
hat was just one lesson imparted by the Chief during what Dean Gail Agrawal characterized as an “amazing day” at the KU School of Law. Roberts had delivered a public lecture on April 30 at the Lied Center as a guest of the School of Business, and he devoted May 1 to speaking with law students both during a Q&A at the Dole Institute and in Professor Stephen McAllister’s Constitutional Law class. After judging the moot court finals, Roberts socialized with members of the law school community at a reception.

The justices are, after all, an extraordinary group of people serving a special role in an institution that is truly unique.”
oberts impressed many of the students with his modesty and sense of humor. One student asked whether the atmosphere ever gets heated in his chambers.

does; they’re always yelling at me,” Roberts said, drawing laughter. “I assume you mean in the conference with the other justices. I have never heard a word raised in anger in the conference room – ever. Yes, we have strongly held views. Yes, we debate at a quite serious level, but never anger.” That amicable interaction, he explained, has something to do with the fact that all the justices read the same briefs, hear the same arguments, sit in the same conference room and research the same cases. “If you picked nine people out ran-

domly and said, ‘Sit here and debate an issue that’s sensitive and controversial,’ you might get angry words. But it’s because you come with different levels of experience and information,” Roberts said. “We go through the same process. So even in the most difficult cases that we feel very strongly about, we have that sympathetic relationship. We’re looking for the same end: What do we think the Constitution or law requires? “I’ve never doubted the good faith of my colleagues. I don’t think they’ve ever doubted mine.” Students quizzed Roberts on a range of topics, from his relationship with his law clerks and his views on specific constitutional issues to the size of the Supreme Court’s docket and the journey a case takes through the Roberts Court. There was curiosity about whether the justices discuss cases or form opinions before oral arguments. “The protocol is that the argument is the first time that we learn what our colleagues are thinking about a case,” Roberts said. “My views on a case change or are susceptible to change at every stage of the process. Part of what defines a good judge is a healthy skepticism toward arguments.” The justices read briefs, hear arguments and hold a conference before one of them writes an opinion. All the stages are crucial, Roberts said, noting that his views sometimes shift based on what his colleagues say about an issue. Modifications can also occur during the opinion-writing process. The conclusion the justices reach may not look as persuasive on paper as it did around the conference table. There might be a dissent. “So it’s a very fluid process,” Roberts said. “What would you have decided after the briefs? What would you have decided after the arguments? What would you have decided after the conference? Fortunately we don’t have to do that. We only have to finally come to rest when that opinion is released, and that way every stage of the process is pretty important.”

aniel Morris wrote out the first 30 seconds of his oral argument word for word at the top of his outline in case he went blank during KU Law’s moot court finals last spring. The second-year law student had prepared for every question the judges would pose, but he couldn’t be sure that words would actually come out when he opened his mouth. After all, it’s hard to know how you’ll react when you find yourself arguing before the most senior judge in the nation. “I stood up and focused on not tripping as I walked to the podium,” Morris said. “I set my outline down, took a deep breath and found myself facing the Chief Justice of the United States. He is a gentleman with a very kind smile that I appreciated immensely in that moment. There was no place in the world I wanted to be more, but that crushing instant would affirm everything I wanted to do in my career or kill me.” Morris and three other KU law students – Brian Nye, Michael Crabb and Lindsey Heinz – presented oral arguments to Chief Justice John Roberts and a panel of distinguished judges on May 1. The finalists emerged from a pool of 46 students who competed in the law school’s moot court competition, which requires second-year students to

“That was a ball, counselor.” Nate Hill, a student in McAllister’s Constitutional Law class last spring, was struck by Roberts’ candor with students. “His responses to the questions were honest and practical, not vague or guarded as one might expect from a prominent figure,” said Hill, who met and spoke briefly with Roberts at the reception following the moot court round. Finalist Lindsey Heinz met the Chief Justice at the reception, too. Roberts wished her a happy birthday. All in all, it was a pretty surreal day for the secondyear student. “I made a point not to really think about the magnitude of it all until after the arguments were complete,” Heinz said. “It’s just mindboggling to think that when I look back, this will likely be one of the biggest moments of my law career and it happened before I even passed the bar.” n
analyze legal issues similar to those currently before the U.S. Supreme Court. Students must write a brief and make an oral argument as if they were appearing before the Court. Students in the finals of this year’s competition couldn’t have had a more realistic experience, as the Chief Justice of the United States presided over the arguments. Roberts was in town for a two-day visit to KU, where he delivered a public lecture and met with law and business students and faculty. The moot court panel also included U.S. Circuit Judges Deanell Tacha and Mary Beck Briscoe, U.S. District Judge John Lungstrum, and Kansas Supreme Court Justice Carol Beier. During the round, the students responded to difficult questions from all of the judges. More than 120 people watched the arguments, including state and federal judges, attorneys, and law faculty and students. Morris and Nye, who argued for the petitioner, were deemed the winning team. Crabb said he couldn’t recall a more intense 15 minutes in his life. “All five judges took the competition very seriously. They seemed to have studied our fact scenario carefully and posed some incisive questions,” he said. “I think the high point of the round for me was when Chief Justice Roberts asked me

hroughout his visit, Roberts stressed the importance of an independent judiciary, untainted by partisanship. And he stood by the analogy he used at his 2005 confirmation hearing, equating the role of a justice to that of an umpire. “Nobody goes to a baseball game to see the umpire,” Roberts said. “The Congress, executive, governors, state legislators – those are the people playing the game. And as umpire, you’re trying to do as good a job as you can to make the calls without taking a side in the game.” The umpire reference surfaced again during the moot court finals, when Morris argued that the Second Amendment does not contain an individual right to bear arms. One of the judges asked him if a particular case was binding. “Not at all; this court remains the umpire of its own precedent,” Morris said. As the audience laughed, Roberts made his call:
whether the phrase ‘bear arms’ had a uniquely military meaning. He suggested that private gun owners don’t usually use that phrase in their activities. “I replied that, here in Kansas, there were plenty of folks who absolutely intend to ‘bear arms’ against those deer. To my great relief, everyone laughed.” The students had about a week and a half to prepare for the final round. They pored over their outlines and revisited relevant cases, reviewed questions asked by justices during oral arguments in similar cases, and delivered practice speeches. Chief Justice Roberts, who argued 39 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court as an attorney, said that the students did a “fabulous job” preparing for the round and maintaining control of their arguments in the face of intense scrutiny. “For those of you observing, you may not appreciate how much work goes into this,” Roberts said. “What you have to remember is that for every question we asked, they had obviously prepared for 25 more.” While only the top two teams earned the honor of arguing before the Chief Justice, the best eight teams will represent the school in national and international competitions this year.
School’s first Supreme Court clerk recalls experience fondly
By Mindie Paget
eywood “Woody” Davis started his Supreme Court clerkship just in time to witness a piece of civil rights history. In the wake of the Court’s 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education, President Eisenhower sent troops to protect black children attending a previously all-white school in Little Rock, Ark. During a special session in September of 1958, the Court heard the state’s plea to postpone its segregation efforts in order to ease tensions. Thurgood Marshall, then with the NAACP, argued on behalf of the respondents. “As new law clerks, we were all interested in seeing these titans of the bar and the Supreme Court justices themselves,” said Davis, L’58, of Davis, Sands & Collins PC in Kansas City, Mo. Observing the case made a memorable first impression on Davis. But then it was straight to work for his new boss, Justice Charles E. Whittaker, a fellow Midwesterner who had interviewed Davis and offered him the clerkship during a return visit to Kansas City. “At the conclusion of the personal interview, he said, ‘Well if you’ll take a chance on me, I’ll take a chance on you,’” Davis recalled. “And I, of course, said I’d be honored and delighted.” Davis was the first Supreme Court clerk from the University of Kansas School of Law, serving Whittaker during his second year on the Warren Court. Fifty years later, he doesn’t remember all the details of particular cases. He does recall, however, the basic responsibilities entrusted to him and fellow clerk William Canby, now a senior judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for
Heywood “Woody” Davis, L’58, works on a typewriter during his clerkship for Supreme Court Justice Charles E.Whittaker. Davis clerked during the 1958-59 term. the 9th Circuit. Much like clerks today, they read briefs, wrote summaries and crafted bench memos. That was before the cert pool, so they had their hands full. “They had little carts that the clerk’s office would bring around with all these briefs,” Davis said. “A new stack would come in every week, and we’d groan and moan looking at them and realizing what we had to do to get them done.” Another difference from then to now? Davis pecked out memos on a typewriter with carbon paper. He characterized his relationship with Whittaker as “cordial but business-like.” “We didn’t have a lot of social contact with him,” Davis said. When Davis and Canby worked on Saturdays, Whittaker took them to lunch at a Methodist cafeteria across the street. “We’d chit-chat. He was just pretty much his own man and very professional and not a back-slapper or gossiper.”
Davis harbors no illusions that he had any real influence on Whittaker’s decisions. “On occasion, he would have us draft opinions,” Davis said. “If there was any similarity between any draft that we might have submitted and the final one that came out from him, it was because it had the word ‘a’ or ‘the’ in it.” A few years after his clerkship, Davis argued his first and only case before the Supreme Court. The day he argued, Whittaker was absent. Arguments ran onto a second day, and that morning Chief Justice Warren announced that Whittaker had resigned. “He wasn’t there to hear his former law clerk argue the case,” Davis said. “But he probably wouldn’t have been on my side anyway.” After leaving the Court in 1962, Whittaker returned to practice in Kansas City. Davis was a pall bearer at his funeral in 1973.

Two-time Supreme Court clerk learned from his ‘heroes’

will never forget my first week as a law clerk at the Supreme Court of the United States. It was the first week of July 1989. On my first day, the Court was announcing its final decision from the 1988 term, a Missouri case involving state abortion laws and one in which many people thought the Supreme Court might overrule Roe v. Wade. Justice White led me and the other clerk who started that day to the area on one side of the courtroom where the law clerks sit. He deposited us there and went to put on his robe and take the bench with his colleagues. We had little idea what we were doing that day, but the atmosphere was electric and it did not take a lawyer to sense the excitement and anticipation permeating the courtroom. When the Court announced its opinion, it became clear that Roe would not to be overruled, though Justice Blackmun read dramatically from his dissenting opinion and predicted the ultimate demise of Roe. The next day it was as if the Court had been forgotten by the world. The past term was effectively over, with no more arguments or opinions until October, and the justices were exiting not only the building but the city and even the country. We settled into a summer routine of reviewing petitions for a writ of certiorari, dealing with requests for stays of execution in capital cases, and preparing a few bench memoranda to assist Justice White with merits cases to be argued in the fall. I remember my first Saturday at the Court because of someone I met that day. We always worked in the building on Saturdays because Justice White did. Seeking a snack, I started down the stairs

near Justice White’s chambers. Someone else was coming up, and he stopped to ask my name, whether I was a new law clerk and for whom I was clerking. After I responded to his questions, this Southern gentleman held out his hand to shake and, with a smile, declared, “I am Lewis Powell, and it is a pleasure to meet you.” I knew it was Justice Powell all along,
but the fact that he made no assumptions and behaved so modestly was very endearing. I have to admit that I was a bit awestruck to be meeting someone whose name I had seen on so many opinions in my constitutional law class. During the next two-plus years, I met all of the justices and interacted with them in ways both substantive
and trivial. I have fond memories of a casual discussion on the back stairs with Chief Justice Rehnquist about my career plans, a conversation about Seventh Circuit Judge Richard Posner with Justice William Brennan, tea in Justice O’Connor’s chambers and watching Justice Scalia merrily sing Christmas carols. A particularly special memory is of the intense putting competitions we sometimes had with Justice White in his chambers. The goal was to make putts – typically through doorways and under particular furniture – so that the other competitors would have to put money in a kitty. The most difficult putt was two full rooms away from the Justice’s office. If you struck the ball just right, it would go through multiple doorways, behind a corner leg and out through the front of the couch in the Justice’s office. Once the kitty got large enough, Justice White and the law clerk competitors would go to lunch and spend the money. One fun tradition was that the clerks of one chambers would invite a justice out for lunch. I recall eating barbecue with Justice Brennan at a place called Hogs on the Hill; being tested on Supreme Court trivia by the Chief Justice at The Monocle, a Capitol Hill institution; and Justice Scalia’s enthusiasm for the AV Ristorante on New York Avenue, where he loved the anchovy pizza and played opera on the jukebox. I also remember trips to the National Gallery of Art, the National Arboretum and an NBA basketball game with Justice White. For the NBA game, the Justice insisted that we rent a 15-passenger van and that the small-town Kansas boy take the wheel because he assumed I could drive just about anything since I grew up in a rural area. Justice Thurgood Marshall would host an end-of-term lunch with all the law clerks in the building. He was an incomparable storyteller with a tremendous sense of humor. Indeed, another fond memory I have of Justice Marshall is watching his press conference when he announced his retirement in June 1991. Crafty and witty as ever, I remember him walking into the press conference and a reporter shouting, “Justice Marshall, how do you feel?” Justice Marshall looked in the reporter’s general direction and, with a sly smile, declared “with my hands” as he raised his arms in the air. Similarly, I have fond memories of my time with Justice Thomas, though my law clerk experience with him was extremely intense and much shorter than my time with Justice White. Unlike Justice White, who had served on the Court literally for longer than I had been alive, I was present on Justice Thomas’ very first day. Because the Justice was confirmed after the term started, we jumped right in with no summer to gear up. We had no established chambers procedures. Fortunately, we had three former clerks and myself. As a result, many of the initial procedures in the Thomas chambers were borrowed
Alumnus in the thick of clerkship with Justice Anthony Kennedy Travis Lenkner can’t talk about it right now. The 2005 graduate of the KU School of Law is in the midst of a clerkship with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, so he’s not allowed to conduct interviews with the media. But it’s safe to make a few assumptions: 1) He’s working extraordinarily hard; 2) He’s honing his legal research and writing
3) He’s having a great time.
“Some cases make more headlines than
others, but by the time they reach the Supreme Court, all of the cases pose interesting legal issues and will be fun to research and consider,”
he said last spring in an interview about the
clerkship. “I’m just looking forward to the experience generally. It’s going to be a fantastic year.”
In December, Lenkner became the fifth KU Law graduate to be
accepted for a Supreme Court clerkship. He will work for Justice Anthony Kennedy through the 2008-09 term. Lenkner practiced for two years after law school at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in Washington, D.C., and then clerked for Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
from or a hybrid of those utilized by Justices White and Scalia. I never worked harder as a law clerk than those first few months with Justice Thomas. Being an early riser, Justice Thomas favored 7 a.m. meetings with his law clerks on oral argument days. More than once we struggled to be ready and alert at that time of the morning, but Justice Thomas was always enthusiastic and often jolly as he debated cases and displayed his sense of humor. There are many stories I could tell, but suffice it to say that Justice Thomas is one of the warmest and most giving people I have ever known – something many KU Law students and alumni know from firsthand experience during his four visits to the law school. I treasure the memories and experiences I obtained from working for two remarkable individuals, Justice Byron White and Justice Clarence Thomas. A gratifying connection for me was the bond that Justice White and Justice Thomas developed during their time together on the Court. I have heard Justice Thomas more than once declare his deep respect and admiration for Byron White, whom he refers to as a “real American hero.” To me, they are both heroes.

clerk surpasses Justice’s test
By Ann M. Scarlett, L’98

interview with Justice Clarence Thomas was not the typical job interview. During most of our 30-minute conversation, he explained what it is like to be a Supreme Court law clerk and how unpleasant those law clerks would treat someone like me who did not earn a law degree from Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Chicago, etc. He emphasized that I was the test case and that my performance would determine whether he would hire future law clerks from other lesser-known law schools.* He only asked me one question during that interview: Could I handle it? I answered yes, and it proved to be an incredible experience from which I learned many lessons. When I arrived at the Supreme Court in July 2000, some of my fellow law clerks did treat me with disdain, and a couple of the justices expressed disbelief when I told them my alma mater. But I had chosen to attend KU Law even though I was accepted at some of the same schools those clerks attended, so I knew that I was capable and worked hard to prove myself. Ultimately, I passed the test and Justice Thomas has since hired another clerk from KU Law, as well as clerks from other law schools such as North Carolina, George Mason, Rutgers and Creighton. Justice Thomas often says he wants to demonstrate that not all smart people choose to go to an Ivy League law school, and I’m sure he was pleased that Justice Kennedy hired a KU Law graduate for the current term. My Supreme Court clerkship taught me a number of life lessons, including that you should never judge a book by its cover and sometimes you’ll have to prove that lesson to others by your example. It has helped me immeasurably in dealing with colleagues in academia who, like

my fellow law clerks, often stereotype me based on my background. In addition, even though I am not a particularly ideological person, I became skilled at making arguments from all ideological perspectives for the debates within our chambers. As a law clerk, I also learned to express my opinions with clarity and logic, to prove that my views defy any stereotype, to respect others’ opinions and to disagree without being disagreeable. Justice Thomas taught me other lessons that made even more lasting impressions. He taught me the importance of standing up for your beliefs, being confident in your ideas and holding true to yourself at all times. By his example, he taught me to act with integrity, to live a moral life and to be thoughtful and deliberate with my words. Detesting the beltway mindset, he also emphasized the value of one’s roots and the significance of not following the crowd. He encour-
aged his clerks to return home to practice law and positively impact their communities. Some of my fondest memories are of the numerous times during clerk conferences that the Justice would tell us stories from his life experiences. Thinking of those stories – which are told in his autobiography, “My Grandfather’s Son” – I draw the encouragement to persevere whenever life gets overwhelming. Remembering the Justice’s booming laugh during our clerk conferences can also lift my spirits. I try to impart these same lessons to the students with whom I interact now that I am a law professor at Saint Louis University School of Law. I only hope that I am half as successful a teacher and mentor as Justice Thomas. * Although KU Law alumnus Steve McAllister clerked for Justice Thomas during the 1991-92 term, he had Supreme Court experience, having served under Justice White the previous two years.
Three times a clerk, professor reaps benefits of days in court
By Mindie Paget

avid Stras still has the autograph he snagged from Clarence Thomas when the Supreme Court justice visited the KU School of Law in 1996. Stras was a first-year student – awed by the opportunity to meet Justice Thomas – with no inkling that their paths might cross again someday. Five years later, Stras found himself talking Nebraska football and NASCAR with Thomas during an interview for a clerkship on the nation’s highest court. “The interview with the law clerks was more intimidating,” said Stras, who earned a dual degree in law and business administration in 1999 and is now an associate professor at the University of Minnesota Law School. “The clerks asked a lot of very substantive questions about constitutional law and statutory interpretation. “The interview with Justice Thomas was really an enjoyable conversation. I think that’s really important for him, to make sure there’s compatibility of personalities.” Thomas must have been impressed, because Stras got the job. He served the Justice during the 2002-2003 term, after clerking for then-Judge J. Michael Luttig of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit. By all accounts, Stras landed at the Court during a huge term. Cases on the docket during his tenure included Gratz and Grutter, the two University of Michigan affirmative action cases; Lawrence v. Texas, addressing state anti-sodomy laws; the Megan’s Law cases, regarding sex offender registration; Lockyer v. Andrade and Ewing v. California, upholding California’s three strikes law; and Eldred v. Ashcroft, affirming a 20-year extension of copyright protection. “It was very exciting and very interesting,” Stras said. “It’s a very humbling experience to be working on some of the most important cases before the country.” Despite the caliber of matters before the Court and their competing views on the issues, Stras and his fellow clerks maintained a collegial relationship. Thomas respected their opinions, Stras said, and always met with his clerks before and after oral arguments to hear their thoughts on the case. Much of Stras’ scholarly work focuses on the Supreme Court, including research on its dwindling docket and the influence of law clerks on justices. Much has been made of the latter question, but Stras has found no evidence that clerks exert inappropriate sway.
Justice Clarence Thomas and David Stras, L’99 As a reward for their hard work, Justice Thomas takes his clerks on a trip in his 40-foot motor home at the end of each term. Civil War sites are the usual destination; Stras went to Gettysburg. He has maintained a friendship with Thomas over the years. People frequently ask Stras what the Justice is like. “You meet him on the street and you think he’s an ordinary person,” Stras said. “He’s very approachable, very warm. And he’s got a booming belly laugh that’s very funny. It was always our goal to make Justice Thomas laugh, because his laugh would make you laugh.” Although no one can count on a Supreme Court clerkship – “It’s like being struck by lightning,” Stras said – he recommends that students pursue clerkships at all levels of the federal judiciary. “I think you can learn an awful lot about the practice of law, making good arguments, writing good briefs – all of those elements – by doing a clerkship at some level,” said Stras, who also clerked for the Hon.

New center to promote excellence in legal advocacy The KU School of Law and the law firm of Shook, Hardy & Bacon have created an academic center aimed at connecting experienced trial lawyers with the students who will follow in their footsteps. KU Law Professor
The Shook, Hardy & Bacon Center for Excellence in Advocacy will capitalize on its namesake’s distinguished history in litigation to cultivate a new generation of trial lawyers. The firm hosted a private reception on June 10 to launch the center.

Apart from its core mission — to enhance the learning experience of students who aspire to be trial lawyers — the center will also create opportunities for mentorship between experienced litigators and law students, provide a forum for practicing trial lawyers to share information with one another and create outlets to educate the public about the role of litigation in a democratic society. In that spirit, the center will invite distinguished trial lawyers to campus to give

Henry, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit, will speak at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 29 at the Dole Institute of Politics. Henry has served on the court since 1994. Prior to that he was dean and professor of law at Oklahoma City University School of Law.
law school Book Exchange closes after seven decades It’s the final chapter for a KU law school institution. After some 70 years in operation, the Law School Book Exchange closed in April. Tamara Dutton, who managed the store for 30 years, retired in May. Dutton’s pending retirement and increasing competition from online bookstores led to the decision to close up shop. The KU Bookstores have taken over retail textbook services for the law school. “We are extremely grateful to Tamara and her leadership over these many years, and we wish her all the best,” said Crystal Mai, associate dean for administration.

Although she doesn’t have any definitive plans for retirement, Dutton is looking forward to traveling with her husband and seeing what life turns up. “This is a new era for me, and I don’t want to eliminate possibilities by making plans,” she said.
Green Hall classrooms get facelift The Stinson Morrison Hecker LLP Lecture Hall at the University of Kansas School of Law got a facelift this summer.
Justice Fred Six, L’56, and the Hon. Jan Karlin, L’80
Alumni ‘Return to Green’ for spring 2008 CLE About 120 KU Law alumni learned about a variety of issues they might encounter as practicing attorneys during the inaugural spring CLE, “A Return to Green.” The program, on April 4 at Green Hall, included the following presentations: n “What’s new in Bankruptcy Court since BAPCPA: For Those Who Do Not Have the Good Fortune to Spend Much Time There!” by the Hon. Janice Karlin, L’80, U.S. bankruptcy judge for the District of Kansas. n “Recent Kansas and Missouri Decisions” by Justice Carol Beier, L’85, Kansas Supreme Court; and the Hon. Thomas Clark, L’64, circuit court judge, Missouri.
Thanks to generous support from the law firm, the first-floor classroom and venue for public lectures underwent a complete cosmetic transformation: new paint, new carpet, new blinds, new desktops, new chairs, new whiteboard. Windows were even installed in the previously solid doors to allow visual access. “Because of the generosity of the firm, we were able to improve the learning environment for students and the public,” said Crystal Mai, associate dean for administration, who oversaw the renovation project. “Securing funds for classroom renovations and other building projects isn’t always easy, but we couldn’t exist without the building, classrooms and infrastructure. We’re grateful to the firm for its support.” The desks and chairs were original to Green Hall, which opened to students in
1977. They had worn well, but worn they were – and dated, too. The carpet, paint and blinds had last been updated a decade ago as part of a legislative appropriation for “crumbling classrooms.” Colors and materials in the renovated lecture hall (Room 104) were chosen with a richer palette in mind. Off-white desktops with wooden trim were replaced with solid surface desktops in Sonora Granite. The walls got a fresh coat of Kilim Beige paint, and the wall panels were reupholstered in Bleu Papier. New black armless chairs with flexible back supports rest on Bigelow carpet in Cool Gray. The school made similar upgrades to Room 107, another classroom. The library, two classrooms and a conference room have been named after firms or alumni who have donated funds that allow the school to upgrade the rooms and support other law school activities. Naming opportunities are still available.
n “Immigration – The Civil Rights Issue of the Decade” by Angela Ferguson, L’86, partner, Austin & Ferguson, Kansas City, Mo. n “Special Responsibility for the Quality of Justice” by David Gottlieb, professor of law, University of Kansas School of Law. n “The Best of Ethics for Good” by the Hon. Steve Leben, L’82, Kansas Court of Appeals judge; Stan Davis, L’82, partner, Shook, Hardy & Bacon, Kansas City, Mo.; and Mark Hinderks, L’82, partner, Stinson Morrison Hecker, Kansas City, Mo. The second annual “Return to Green” CLE is tentatively scheduled for April 3, 2009.

Damage control KU Law students create bench book to help prepare Kansas judges for public health emergencies Pandemic flu. Catastrophic tornados. Mass terrorist attacks. They’re scenarios we’d rather not contemplate, but they’re all potential public health emergencies with specialized legal ramifications. In Kansas, however, there hasn’t been a go-to guide for the judges and public health officials who might be called upon to sort out the details amid the chaos. That’s changing, thanks to Professor Elizabeth Weeks Leonard and the students in her spring 2008 Public Health Law seminar. Leonard and her research assistant, third-year law student Neal Johnson, are putting the final touches on the Kansas Public Health Bench Book, an “elbow guide” for Kansas judges that summarizes the laws that might arise in these situations. Leonard’s students researched, wrote and edited the book at the request of the Kansas Office of Judicial Administration and the Kansas Public Health Association. “Previously, there was not much information available for judges in this area,” said Doug Cruce, court security analyst at the Office of Judicial Administration. “There have been some localized CLE programs done

around the state, but we are not sure many of our judges attended. So unless our judges picked up some education on their own at a conference or otherwise, there has not been much out there for them.” The students worked in teams, focusing on substantive and due process orders, public health authority, executive power and responsibility, and judicial administration. They found the research challenging because of a lack of relevant case law and documented procedures in the area. When they couldn’t find information, the students pointed out the gaps and made recommendations. “I certainly hope that the bench book will contribute significantly to clear and efficient resolution of cases,” said Austin Murrey, a thirdyear law student who worked on the book. “It’s certainly gratifying to get to work on a project that will make such a contribution to the work of the Kansas courts.” In addition to Leonard, representatives of the Office of Judicial Administration, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, the Adjutant General’s Office – even a few judges – reviewed the students’ drafts as they worked on the book. “So they had to not only
write for their professor, but for people who are out in practice and in government,” Leonard said. “It raises the stakes a little. Hopefully they would do the same product regardless, but I think that makes it a very real experience.” Megan Chapman, who graduated in May, was part of a group that examined the structures and interactions of KDHE and local health departments. It’s important, she said, for the courts to be familiar with the powers of local health departments and the resources they offer. “I think right now so much is happening at the local level that’s not standardized,” Chapman said. “I think it would help the public as well as the people administering the programs if there were more mandates, more regulations and more guides.” The bench book project advances the broader mission of the University of Kansas to provide service to the state. “The reason this is such an excellent example of service learning is because not only are the students getting practical experience in what they’re going to be doing with their discipline and seeing how what they’re studying fits into the broader context, but also the community is benefiting from what the students are doing as they’re learning,” said Amanda Schwegler, assistant director of the KU Center for Service Learning. “So it’s a reciprocal relationship, and that’s really the crux of what we try and establish in a service learning situation.” Cruce said working with the students had been a good experience. His office will take a look at the final draft of the bench book and determine whether more work needs to be done.

When the guide is complete, it will become an invaluable resource for judges confronted with public health emergencies small or large. The students are already reaping the rewards of their work. “Obviously, through the course of the research we picked up some substantive knowledge about health law,” Murrey said. “But the participation in research on real topics and the production of a real legal work product is, I think, the main value of this class.”

Elder law attorneys serving a
booming population Client: I have some concerns about my 74-yearold mother. She is a widow and has lived by herself for several years. She gets around pretty well, but I worry about her falling and not being able to call for help. She won’t talk about moving out of her house. As far as I can tell she is in reasonably good health, but I am afraid she is skipping meals and I know that she sometimes forgets to change her clothes and brush her hair. I’m not all that familiar with the measures she has taken for financial planning or health care. I try to visit once a week, but I wonder if there is more I can do to help plan for the future. What advice can you give me?
To illustrate the concerns of the growing elderly population and their families as they might pertain to interactions with attorneys who specialize in elder law, we invented a hypothetical client and asked Professor Sandra Craig McKenzie to respond to the client’s questions. McKenzie
McKenzie: First, let me say that you are not alone in this situation. Thanks in part to advances in science and health care, Americans have seen a dramatic increase in longevity. Life expectancy for Americans went up from 47 years for those born in 1900, to 68 in 1950, and 77 for those born in 2000. Longevity is also its own reward. Americans reaching age 65 in 2000 could expect to live another 18 years; those reaching 75 could expect to reach age 86. One important resource for you and your mother would be an attorney who specializes in elder law. This is a relatively new area of specialty for lawyers. Client: Why is elder law such a new area of specialization for lawyers? How quickly is it growing and why?
directs the school’s Elder Law Program. The discussion is not intended as legal advice. However, it might be a starting point for conversations many will have about their parents or themselves – whether they practice elder law or not.

McKenzie: Elder Law has emerged as a specialty in response to the growth in the elderly population. The most prominent organization for elder law specialists, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, was founded in 1987. The need for elder law specialists will certainly grow as the estimated 78 million Americans
born between 1945 and 1964, the baby boomers, reach retirement age. When this group begins to retire, the country will experience an increased demand for health care and other services – and a dwindling workforce to support those services. Client: How might an elder law practitioner help my mother? McKenzie: Your inquiry raises a number of issues to consider – with both legal and nonlegal aspects. “Aging in place” is a concept illustrated by your mother’s desire to remain in her home. Staying in familiar surroundings is the preference of many seniors, and research supports that it contributes to well-being. You may want to look into assistance with meals or housekeeping. Modifications to the physical structure of her house, such as grab bars, ramps and lighting can make it easier for her to remain. Check with her doctor to identify treatable conditions affecting balance, hearing, etc. Client: How can I find all of these services? McKenzie: Finding and implementing the community services necessary to make aging in place a realistic possibility can be a frustrating experience. In most communities, there is no single source for transportation, meals, nursing care and other services. The fragmented delivery system is complicated further by limited availability of some services and varying eligibility requirements. Specialists, called Geriatric Care Managers, can be helpful with these choices. Client: Aging in place sounds good, but what if it doesn’t work out for my mother? McKenzie: At some point, declining physical capacity or more serious health issues may require decisions about other living arrangements and care for your mother. Health care issues require an experienced elder law attorney to navigate the waters of Medicare, Medicaid and private health insurance. Medicare is a federal program that provides some hospital coverage, supplemental coverage for physician office visits, and prescrip-

he U.S. population has aged a lot since Betsy Tedrow got her law degree from the University of Kansas in 1987. Couple that demographic shift with Tedrow’s own experience helping her mother navigate the legal issues that arise with getting older, and you learn why Tedrow came back to law school in 2005. “I got interested in elder law by seeing how much of a struggle it was for older people to deal with the system. It was kind of a maze,” said Tedrow, who finished her LL.M. in Elder Law at KU last spring. “My hope was to help older people navigate that maze.” Since 1995, KU Law has been a leader in offering course work and a clinical experience for law students interested in elder law. The school offers a Certificate in Elder Law; 23 students have earned the certificate since 2003. In 2005, KU became the first law school in the country to offer an LL.M. in Elder Law. Tedrow is the second student to graduate from the program. The first was Lauren Marinaro, L’04, who now practices at Fink Rosner ErshowLevenberg in Clark, N.J. A third student, Steven Anderson, first graduated from KU Law in 1981 and has returned to Green Hall to pursue an LL.M. In addition to coursework that covers topics such as public benefits, the private pension system, property management, health care decision making, guardianship and
Betsy Tedrow, L’87 protection, end-of-life issues, wills and estates, and long-term care, students in the LL.M. program produce a thesis on an elder law topic. Tedrow focused her thesis on approaches to end-of-life planning by minority cultures. She did her required elder law externship with Stacey Janssen, L’88, who has an elder law practice in Overland Park. Having worked as a bank examiner at the Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City for 17 years, Tedrow was familiar with many of the financial-planning tools available to elder lawyers and their clients. “But the direct exposure to clients was new,” she said of her externship experience. “I really did enjoy working with that population because they’re so grateful for the help that you can give them.” Tedrow is now senior vice president at Country Club Bank

green hall news tion drug coverage for seniors. Medicaid is a joint program of the federal and state governments which provides benefits to low-income children and other lowincome individuals who are disabled or elderly. There are other long-range planning issues to address as well. One of the most difficult is a decline in mental capacity – the ability to make competent decisions. This does not mean that the individual always makes good decisions, just that she is capable of doing so. This can be an especially difficult situation for those involved. Client: What are the most common legal tools to assist with decision making in the elder population? McKenzie: There are a variety of tools you might want to consider, and an elder law attorney could help you with any of them. The elder law attorney can also advise you about the advantages and disadvantages of each option. Note that these tools are available to individuals other than seniors and may be appropriate in situations other than those discussed here. Tools for decision making and financial management include: Conservator: A person appointed by the court who is responsible for managing the estate and financial affairs of an incapacitated person. Guardian: A person appointed by the
court who makes personal decisions for an incapacitated individual. Durable power of attorney: A power of attorney is a document in which you appoint someone to manage your finances or make other decisions regarding your property. A durable power of attorney is one that is effective if you become incapacitated. The DPOA can serve as an alternative to the appointment of a guardian and/or conservator. Designated Payee: An individual or McKenzie organization appointed by the Social Security Administration to receive Social Security and/or Supplemental Security Income payments for someone who cannot manage his or her money. Tools specifically designed for health care decisions: Health care power of attorney: A document in which you appoint someone to be your health care agent to make any necessary health care decisions for you and to see that doctors and other health care providers give you the type of care you wish to receive. This is also typically a durable power. Living will: A written statement that details the type of care you want (or don’t want) if you become incapacitated. Living wills are based on the legal right to refuse treatment, and gained acceptance prior to the development of the comprehensive Health
and Trust Co. in Prairie Village, Kan., where she handles trust administration, working directly with clients and compliance issues. “So I’m still drawing on my bank regulation compliance background, but I’m getting to have that human contact in helping people with estate and retirement planning and trust administration,” she said. “We have all kinds of trusts here ... so I’m really getting to utilize that Elder Law LL.M. – Mindie Paget in my work now.”

Care Power of Attorney. Tools for planning the disposition of assets: Estate plan: Documents in which you designate how you wish for your estate – real estate, bank accounts, stocks and other securities, and personal property – to be dealt with and distributed at your death. Wills and trusts are typically part of an estate plan. Client: Do the complexities of elder law cases call for an approach by attorneys that exceeds purely analyzing and advising on legal issues? McKenzie: Yes. Legal issues are often inseparable from the individual’s physical and mental condition, health issues and social setting. It may take a combination of professionals to assess what approach will be most effective. At the same time, the elder lawyer must be sensitive to the effects on the client, who may find dealing with multiple providers to be confusing. – Professor Sandra Craig McKenzie has been on the KU Law faculty for 30 years. She finds teaching elder law to be a wonderful experience that draws on her expertise in property, tax, estate planning, local government and alternative dispute resolution. As director of the Elder Law Program, she oversees both the Elder Law Certificate and the Elder Law LL.M. programs. She acknowledges a degree of personal interest in the subject based on her status as a member of the baby boom generation.
Support for elder law Several donors have specified support for the school’s Elder Law Program. Gifts from Donald W. Giffin, L’53, and Esther Brown Giffin, as well as Max and Mary Brown, established the Paul H. and Daisy E. Brown Elder Law Fund.

Kwapich started a classroom music program at St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf, a Lenexa school that prepares recent recipients of cochlear implants for the transition from a deaf education to a mainstream hearing program in public schools. “It was fascinating,” Kwapich said. “Basic concepts such as ‘high and low’ or ‘loud and soft’ were suddenly new and exciting. By the end of our first year, the students could read basic notes and play simple tunes with handbells.” For a final project, each student “composed” two measures of music. Kwapich

A modern Thoreau with mortuary experience It’s safe to say Damien Baranski took the road less traveled on his way to KU Law. While completing a horticulture degree at Kaw Area Technical School, he moved into a 14-square-foot stucco hut near the Kansas River outside of Topeka. He lived for a year in one room with no kitchen, preparing food with a hot plate and microwave and sleeping on a mattress on the floor. He had a stereo and chair, but no TV or air conditioning. “One time it got so hot in the hut that some long, tapered candles on my wall started to melt,” Baranski said. At the end of the Thoreau-like adventure, Baranski was more than ready to go to college. But his path didn’t get any more ordinary. For two years he lived in the basement of the Lawrence mortuary where he worked. Baranski cleaned, helped with visitations and funerals and did after-hours pick-ups of the deceased. “Sometimes I assisted the funeral director in preparing the body,” he said. Not one to shy away from challenging experiences, Baranski admits that his first semester of law school was pretty intense. To relax, he spends time with his wife, watches movies, plays pool and cooks. He would like to get into jury consulting when he graduates and eventually open his own restaurant near the ocean.
Yan Liu was studying in the apartment she shared with her younger brother on an October 2005 morning when a raging fire quickly engulfed the building. They managed to escape, climbing to the ground from a bedroom window. Not everyone was so fortunate. The fire claimed three lives and destroyed 76 units. But even in her hurry to evacuate, Liu grabbed her backpack, wallet and a blanket. She made it to class at the University of Kansas the next day, never allowing the tragedy to interrupt her studies. “I think you can always discover something good in life even when you are in a terrible situation,” Liu said. “I was lucky. There was a lot of help available for me afterwards.” Last spring, Liu, a native of Fujian, China, became the first recipient of the Nicole Bingham Memorial Scholarship, created by the mother of a KU student who died in the fire. Liu graduated from KU in May with a bachelor’s in history. As long as she’s been a full-time college student, she has been raising her brother and holding down a job. She is interested in international intellectual property law and hopes to help fund her brother’s college education.
A hometown voice for the legal stage Lawrence Henderson may be from Kansas, but he could fool you when he talks. The former theater major can speak in several accents, including Scottish, Cockney, Russian, Irish and Deep South. He picked up the skill from KU theater professor Paul Meier. “I only keep one or two accents in a condition that I would call acceptable, but I keep Professor Meier’s book on accents in my library in case I should need one for a voice-over or other purpose,” said Henderson, of Leavenworth. Growing up, Henderson participated in wrestling, football, track, forensics, and instrumental and vocal music. After graduating from KU, he worked as a professional actor at the Creede Repertory Theatre in Colorado. When he realized his heart wasn’t in the business, he returned to Kansas to follow in his mother’s footsteps; she graduated from KU Law in the 1980s and now practices in Leavenworth. Henderson enjoys watching KU sports and hanging out with his fiancée and their miniature Australian shepherd, Sasha Kaun. He intends to put his law degree to use close to home. “I’d like to go back to Leavenworth and work alongside my mother,” he said, “and give back to the community that helped to shape me.”

Program and strongly recommended for current students in those programs. Overseas Visiting Scholars were also encouraged to attend. Bhala suggested five dos and five don’ts to help international students acclimate to the legal and educational culture in the United States. For example, he recommended that the students join a study group with American students and bring their country into the classroom, teaching fellow students how a legal problem might be examined and decided in their country. Conversely, he urged the students not to pass when called upon in class and not to be intimidated by their teachers and classmates.

Fourteen students are enrolled in the school’s Two-Year J.D. Program, and seven are pursuing an S.J.D. The Two-Year J.D. Program allows students who hold law degrees from accredited foreign law schools to obtain a U.S. law degree in two years. The S.J.D. Program is designed for academics who already have an advanced law degree and wish to pursue in-depth legal scholarship. Many of the program’s participants are international scholars.
“The bottom line from this list seems to be that the ICL tradition at KU Law is long and deep – in a word, grand,” said Raj Bhala, the Raymond F. Rice Distinguished Professor of Law. “The law school appears to have been a ‘Powerhouse on the Prairie’ in ICL for a century.”

The event, which took place on the seventh anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, was sponsored by the International Law Society and Phi Beta Delta, an international scholar honor society.
The International and Comparative Law Program at KU has expanded rapidly in the past several years. Research conducted by Tammy Steinle, information technology and digital librarian for the Wheat Library, shows that scholarship in the area is deeply rooted in the law school’s history.
Steinle has compiled a list of 10 former KU Law faculty members – who predate current active and emeritus faculty – and their publications. Five of the 10 scholars served before World War II, and two of them began their service about 20 years after the law

Raj Bhala, the Raymond F. Rice Distinguished Professor of Law, received a W.T. Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence, a universitywide award that recognizes outstanding teaching and advising as determined by a sevenmember selection committee. Bhala, who earned his law degree from Harvard University in 1989, has not wasted any time since arriving at KU in 2003. “I cannot remember any faculty member who has so quickly and effectively transformed what we do,” said a colleague in nominating Bhala for a Kemper fellowship. Among programs Bhala has created and implemented at KU are the Certificate in International Trade and Finance and the Two-Year J.D. Program for Foreign-Trained Lawyers, which allows international students with prior law experience to obtain a degree that entitles them to take bar examinations in the United States. Programs such as these have brought to KU Law students from Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, France, Germany, India, Liberia, Nigeria and Saudi Arabia. As his nominating colleague said, “Perhaps most important is his celebration of the limitless variety of the human condition. If the world is to be a better place, it is students of teachers like Raj Bhala who will make it so.” Shelley Hickman Clark, clinical associate professor, received the Heritage Preservation Award for legal advocacy from the Shawnee County Historical Society.

A team led by Provost Richard Lariviere, left, surprises KU Law Professor Raj Bhala during class with news that he has received a Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence. the Friends of Bethany Inc., a nonprofit group dedicated to the preservation of Bethany Place, a property listed on the Register of Historic Kansas Places. Professor George Coggins’ casebook “Federal Public Land and Natural Resources Law” was recognized as the dominant authority among natural resources law textbooks for the past 25 years in a University of Colorado Law Review article. The article (Vol. 78, Issue 2, Spring 2007) traces the evolution of natural resources law casebooks and pedagogy over the past half-century. The article authors, Michael Blumm and David Becker, write of Coggins’ book: “More than any of the earlier texts, this casebook presented the rich cultural history of the law of natural resources,
identifying landmark cases of the nineteenth and early twentieth century and establishing a Western canon of public lands and resource law.” They also credit the book, which Coggins co-authored with Charles Wilkinson and (beginning with the third edition) John Leshy, with “placing resource expansion on equal footing with resource consumption.” That groundbreaking approach, write Blumm and Becker, appealed to many law students who study natural resources law with the hope of protecting natural resources. Professor John Head was one of three recipients of the 2008 Michael P. Malone International Leadership Award, granted by the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges. The award Head
recognizes individuals with a “career of outstanding contributions that furthers international education of state and land-grant institutions.” Head has taught law in several countries in Europe and Asia and regularly undertakes overseas assignments involving international financial law, international organizations, and international legal training. He coaches the law school’s highly successful international law moot court teams and cosponsors the International Law Society. In addition to the Malone Award, Head also received a Fulbright Distinguished Chair Award to teach and conduct research at the University of Trento in northern Italy. This is Head’s second Fulbright award; he went to China in 1994. Webb Hecker received the 2008 Frederick J. Moreau Award, given annually to a law school faculty member who, in the eyes of law students, has been particularly helpful in advising and counseling students. Hecker teaches Business Hecker Associations and Estates and Trusts. He was the Robert A. Schroeder Teaching Fellow from 1990 to 1993 and received the Immel Award for Teaching Excellence in 1996 and a W.T. Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence in 2000. Professor Stacy Leeds won a Fletcher Fellowship for work that contributes to improving racial equality in American society and furthers the broad social goals of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Brown v. Board of Education. She received a $50,000 stipend to produce a book called “Ties
that Bind: Freedmen Citizenship and the Cherokee Nation,” which will provide a comprehensive history of the Cherokee freedmen, the African American slaves held by the Cherokee Nation until the 1860s, and their descendants. While a Leeds justice on the Cherokee Nation Supreme Court, Leeds authored the majority opinion in Allen v. Cherokee Nation, a judicial decision that upheld the tribal citizenship rights of the “freedmen” and is considered a decision parallel to Brown v. Board. Stephen R. McAllister, professor of law, has received a Steeples Service to Kansans Award, which is given to faculty members who provide significant service to the people of Kansas as a purposeful extension of their teaching and research. Previously, the award was McAllister limited to faculty in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. This year, faculty members from the entire university were eligible. McAllister has served as dean of the law school and as interim director of the Dole Institute of Politics. He teaches courses in Constitutional Law, Constitutional Litigation and Torts. He is currently the solicitor general of Kansas, and is the first person in that position to represent the state in constitutional cases. The award provides recipients with $1,000 and an additional $1,000 base adjustment to their salaries.

Raj Bhala received a book publishing contract to write “Understanding Islamic Law.” The book will be published by LexisNexis and is designed for Islamic Law courses taught in English in law schools in the U.S. and around the world. The project will take about two years to complete. Bhala’s article, “Virtues, The Chinese Yuan, and the American Trade Empire,” was published in the Hong Kong Law Journal (Vol. 38, 2008). He presented the article in February in Toronto at Heenan Blaikie, one of Canada’s premier law firms, to an audience that included Canada’s former Minister of Trade. Bhala also presented his research titled “Doha Round Schisms: Numerous, Technical and Deep” at a symposium on the World Trade Organization (WTO) in February at Loyola Law School in Chicago. Along with Professor Steve McAllister, Bhala wrote an amicus brief for the United States Supreme Court in a case involving alleged dumping of enriched uranium by French producer-exporters into the American market. It is rare for the Supreme Court to accept certiorari in an international trade matter. The amicus brief argues that both WTO and American antidumping law apply only to goods, not to services such as uranium enrichment, and that is how it should be. LexisNexis has appointed Bhala to its Law School Publishing Advisory Board for a three-year term commencing Jan. 1, 2009. He received a W.T. Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence in September. Finally, Bhala completed the 9/11 Patriots’ Run Marathon in Olathe in a time of 3 hours and 44 minutes, and continued on for another 45 minutes for an Ultra Marathon of 30.5 miles – good

Faculty blogs explore scholarly interests
everal KU Law faculty members supplement their scholarship and teaching with blogs about subjects that interest them most. Among them, Professor Michael Hoeflich might win the prize for quirkiest blog. He started one last spring called “The Legal Antiquarian” (www.thelegalantiquarian.blogspot.com). Its purpose, he explained, is to “foster interest in the material and popular culture of the law, a subject which I have published on over the past decade in various law journals, including a series of articles in The Green Bag and Commonplace.” Hoeflich’s posts have included musings about the history of binding law books, a series of 19th-century French feminist postcards in support of women attorneys and his discovery of a Colorado beer called Collaboration Not Litigation Ale, which he contends should be the official brew of any law school course on alternative dispute resolution. In addition to “The Legal Antiquarian,” Hoeflich maintains the “KUContracts1” blog (http://kucontracts1. blogspot.com) and “The Ethical KS Lawyer” blog (http://theethicalkslawyer.blogspot.com). Both are associated with Hoeflich’s fall courses, and he uses them to provide assignments and commentary for the classes.

Alumni, students spend day ‘Making a Difference for Lawrence’
ournalist Tom Brokaw said, “It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot tougher to make a difference.” A group of KU Law alumni and students took that message to heart on a picturesque Saturday in September as they completed service projects during the second annual “KU Law – Making a Difference for Lawrence.” More than 100 volunteers donned blue T-shirts bearing Brokaw’s words and, after some words of encouragement from Dean Gail Agrawal, headed to sites across the community to lend a hand. Armed with work gloves, paint brushes, wrapping paper, cleaning supplies and bingo cards, the volunteers completed the following projects: n Cleaned a half-mile stretch of road between Louisiana Street and Haskell Avenue on 31st Street for the Haskell Ecology Club, which had scheduled canoe rides and tours of the wetlands for the following weekend. n Sorted, inventoried and wrapped dozens of gifts at the Lawrence Arts Center for its Children’s Holiday Shop. n Organized building materials at Habitat Restore. n Helped run a nonprofit soccer tournament. n Painted six bedrooms and closets at The Villages, a nonprofit organization that provides housing to children in need. n Did yard work and other cleaning, cleaned vans and did deep-cleaning at three Community Living Opportunity homes for adults with developmental disabilities. n Helped greet and answer questions at the River City Reading Festival. n Painted and did yard word at East Heights Early Childhood Family Education. n Ran a bingo session with seniors at Pioneer Ridge Retirement Community. n Painted three wooden playground structures with wood preservative at Hilltop Child Development Center. “We had glorious weather, everyone showed up ready and eager to work, and I think we got everything accomplished that we hoped to,” said the Hon. Janice Miller Karlin, L’80, a U.S. bankruptcy judge for the District of Kansas who helped organized the service projects through the Roger Hill Volunteer Center. “I was especially proud of the students, who took a beautiful fall day out of their busy schedules to help others less fortunate than they.” Organizers also conducted a mini-food drive in conjunction with the event, and contributions were distributed to a local food pantry.

Kemp, 750 F.Supp. 1001 (W.D.Mo. 1990), was one of the first cases to allege that HAKC’s failure to maintain hundreds of public housing units constituted de facto demolition of those units and violated Fair Housing laws.

Shortly after pocketing the mortgage proceeds, the “remodeler” disappeared. Sutherland sued the remodeler on behalf of his client, successfully obtaining a default judgment. However, the defendant turned out to be judgment proof. Unable to keep up with the mortgage payments, the client was faced with a foreclosure action. After two years of litigation, Sutherland was able to resolve the matter by having the client refinance her house and pay the existing mortgage at about 30 cents on the dollar. Sutherland’s hard work and diligence prevented his client from becoming homeless. He devoted 145 hours of pro bono service on the matter.

Students don professor’s ‘uniform’ for Halloween trick
wenty-one years ago on Halloween, the students in Professor John Peck’s small section of Contracts I decided to haunt their teacher with his mirror image. Make that 21 mirror images. The students observed that Peck almost always wore the same basic outfit to class: khaki pants, a white or blue button-down shirt rolled up to the elbows, a tie and a wristwatch (which he routinely offered to sell in class). They thought it would be fun to emulate him, although they weren’t sure he would notice because he always conducted class in a very down-to-business manner.

Halloween arrived, and all the students donned the “Peck uniform.” They were waiting in the classroom when their professor arrived. Peck didn’t seem to notice.
Then student Sam Logan made his entrance. “I sat next to him and took my watch off and put it on the table next to me – another mannerism John always did to keep the class on schedule,” said Logan, L’90, a partner at the Overland Park office of Foulston Siefkin LLP. “He looked at me and laughed.” Then another student asked, “Don’t you notice anything else?” As Logan recalls, Peck “then looked around and noticed everyone else dressed like him. I recall he was thrown off a bit in class that day and cracked up every time he looked over at me.”
Dear alumni and friends of KU Law, Thank you for your support and generosity to your legal alma mater. Just over 930 of you made a gift to the law school this year. Approximately 120 of you are members of the Deans Club, and six of you are new James Woods Green Medallion honorees. The classes of 2007 and 2008 have begun to fulfill their three-year pledges to give back. With them, we continue to build a culture of philanthropy to support a strong future for KU Law. Your gifts helped talented law students, making it possible for them to attend law school and enriching their educational experience in Green Hall. You provided scholarships and financial aid. You gave summer stipends to 19 law students who worked in otherwise unpaid public sector positions during the summer. You sent students to compete in moot court competitions, including the prestigious National and Jessup International Law Moot Court competitions, and specialty competitions in environmental and health law. You made it possible for a team of our Native American law students to travel and compete in the National Native American Law Students Association Moot Court competition. Your gifts support an outstanding faculty and their cutting-edge research in environmental law, international arbitration, intellectual property and international trade law, to name just a few of the areas in which our faculty members are working. You made sure that we have a first-class law library for our students, practicing lawyers in our community and legal scholars to study, read and to conduct research. Because of you, we renovated the Stinson Morrison Hecker Lecture Hall, our largest classroom and frequent meeting place. And we finally bid farewell to the 1970s-era orange chairs in one of our most-used classrooms with its remodeling over the summer. You ensure that Green Hall offers a strong learning and teaching environment to prepare tomorrow’s leaders. The tangible effects of your generosity are essential amid decreasing state support. To the institutions that accredit and rank American law schools, financial resources count. Your support is used as a measure of the quality of your law school. As we succeed, your investment in our future enhances the value of the degree you earned here. To our current students, your contributions signal your commitment as a member of the KU Law family to them and their success. We build the KU Law legacy with each donation. This issue of the KU Law Magazine celebrates that legacy: three distinguished alumni recognized for service and excellence in the practice of law; five exceptional KU Law graduates who served as law clerks on the Supreme Court of the United States; and four talented second-year law students who presented their moot court arguments before Chief Justice John Roberts. In recent weeks, we hosted the Diplomat’s Forum, the annual Law Review and Law Journal symposia, and the inaugural Robert Casad Comparative Law Lecture. We will begin the spring 2009 semester with the Hon. Robert Henry, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit, who will present the inaugural lecture of KU Law’s Shook Hardy & Bacon Center for Excellence in Advocacy. These are exciting times in Green Hall. On behalf of the students, staff and faculty of KU Law, thank you for making our successes possible. In these trying economic times, your continued support is crucial to our ability to provide a first-rate legal education to the daughters and sons of Kansas, as well as the students from across the nation and around the world who join them in Green Hall.

Class of 2007 nurtures culture of philanthropy at KU Law
hirty members of the KU Law Class of 2007 have taken the first steps toward building a culture of philanthropy at their legal alma mater. We want to say thank you. These newly minted alumni – who can still see Green Hall in their rearview mirror – have begun to fulfill the first generation of the Class Pledge. This giving initiative, created by the Class of 2007, asks alumni to donate at least $25 one year out of school, $50 two years out and $100 three years out. The amount of the gift is not the most important factor. The creators of the Class Pledge wanted to establish a habit of giving, a sense of pride that their law school continues to produce excellent lawyers because of their support – now and in the future. We extend special thanks to 2007 graduates Dan Calderon and Katie Gates who, as president and vice president respectively of the Student Bar Association, led the charge to establish the pledge and encourage their classmates to invest. Thirty members of the class have accepted the challenge so far, contributing a total of $1,840. That’s a giving rate of about 20 percent, which exceeds the overall KU Law giving average by approximately 6 percent. Already, a handful of alumni from the Class of 2008 have started fulfilling their pledges. Some of them wrote checks as soon as they graduated, and we thank them for leading by example. At right are the members of each class who had made a contribution through Oct. 31, 2008:

Jana Lynne Mackey 1982-2008
ana Mackey applied to the University of Kansas School of Law to “become a more effective advocate for the people and the issues” that mattered to her. Her hope, selflessness and optimism inspired others at the school, and she has been greatly missed. The second-year law student and ardent advocate for women’s rights was found dead inside her ex-boyfriend’s home on July 3, 2008. An estimated 1,100 mourners attended a celebration of Mackey’s life on July 9 at Liberty Hall in downtown Lawrence. Dean Gail Agrawal noted during her remarks at the service that Mackey would not have measured personal success by the numbers on her paycheck: “Her ‘eyes on the prize-in-thedistance’ gazed not toward Wall Street and large law firms with long names for founding partners, but to a clear we-can-do-it vision of social justice – for women, for gays and lesbians, for all those whose voices were too rarely heard or listened to in the corridors of power,” Agrawal said. “Jana would make a difference, and the large and small steps our society took toward human rights would be the measure of her success.” Mackey volunteered at agencies that served rape victims and survivors of domestic violence. She was a lobbyist for women’s rights organizations in Kansas and was active in state and national political campaigns. She started law school in the fall of 2007 and was involved in the Public Interest Law Society and Women in Law. She was enrolled during the summer in the Paul E. Wilson Defender Project. There she represented her first client, setting aside her passions to advocate for the interests of a federal prisoner who was a repeat perpetrator of violence. “I regret, more than I can say, that we will not come to know the lawyer Jana would have been,” Agrawal said at Mackey’s memorial service. Earlier this month, the Kansas Association for Justice awarded the Paul E. Wilson Advocacy Award to Mackey posthumously. The annual award recognizes a Defender Project intern who has demonstrated outstanding advocacy for a client’s legal claim as well as compassion and respect for the client as an individual.
The Public Interest Law Society and the Student Bar Association have raised more than $2,500 for the Jana Mackey Support for Public Advocacy Fund, which the law school established through the KU Endowment Association at the request of Mackey’s parents. Other donations have come from a wide range of friends, family and members of the law school community. Friends and family have launched a campaign in Mackey’s memory called Eleven Hundred Torches, which encourages 1,100 people to serve others. The campaign’s name symbolizes the number of people who attended Mackey’s memorial service and were asked to pick up the young activist’s torch and carry her work forward.

Andrew John Mullin
he University of Kansas School of Law community lost a promising young student in October. Andrew Mullin, whom family and friends remember as encouraging, inquisitive and witty, died Oct. 18, 2008, at his home in Lawrence. Mullin entered KU Law with the Class of 2009 after spending several years as a paralegal. He graduated with distinction with a bachelor’s in English from KU in 1998. He was a Summerfield Scholar and participated in the University Honors Program. Mullin was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, an ac-
72 KU LAW MAGAZINE
ademic honor society, and studied at the American University in Cairo. “Andrew was interested in media and entertainment law and was known by his friends and teachers for his dry wit and ability to turn a phrase,” said Dean Gail Agrawal. “He has been sorely missed by his friends at Green Hall.” At an Oct. 23 memorial service for Mullin in Prairie Village, a reading of thanks captured the many facets of his personality at different stages of his life. There was “Andy the child,” who liked to walk in “sock feet,” feed the fish off the dock at the lake and tie the
dog to his Big Wheel so he could be pulled around. There was “Andrew the brother,” who built snow forts with his younger brother in the winter and provided his sibling constant comfort and friendship. “Andrew the traveler” ventured to Disney World, the Grand Canyon, Mexico and Europe. He studied abroad in Cairo and Turkey. The “inquisitive and clever Andrew” communicated with a dry wit, loved a challenge and read every chance he got. Mullin’s family also characterized him as a humble person who underestimated the depth and breadth of his talent and was open to learning from a diverse range of people. He was “warm, accommodating, genuinely sweet,” they said, and he “left this world wanting his friends and family to know how much he loved and cared for them.”
