KU Law students spend their summers learning in as many settings as there are varieties of legal practice. They develop their practical lawyering skills in small and large practices, public agencies and businesses all over the state, nation and world. They take law classes at home and abroad and they volunteer their time and intellect in far-flung regions of the world that most of us can only read about. You may be surprised to learn what KU Law students do during the summer.

“A lot of people of my

generation are looking at not addressing problems as they come, but addressing them before they come.” – Burton Warrington

Allen Doyel

Burton Warrington

Allen Doyel: Tokyo, Japan To further his knowledge in the field of intellectual property and to fulfill a desire to see Japan, third-year law student Allen Doyel participated in the Santa Clara University Summer Abroad Program in Tokyo. The Santa Clara program divides the summer into two halves. Students take Japanese law classes taught in English during the first half and spend the second half participating in internships with law firms and corporations in Japan. Allen attended classes on Japanese and intellectual property law then worked at a Japanese company that manufactures semi-conductors. Allen had what he calls a “very Japanese” experience. “The other employees would take us out and show us how they spend their down time,” Allen said. “I got to experience what it was like to be the Japanese salary man.” Though the language barrier didn’t cause Allen any problems in the classroom, not speaking fluent Japanese was his biggest obstacle during his time in Tokyo. “I was told that everyone speaks English, but that just isn’t true,” he said. “It was not bad at work because my supervisor spoke English. But most of my co-workers did

not speak English. And as far as getting around Tokyo was concerned, you were on your own.” Some of the best aspects of his experience involved travel throughout Japan and taking in the country’s rich history during his free time from school and work. He stayed overnight at a Buddhist temple and attended a sumo tournament during his stay. Allen has already passed the patent bar and plans to practice international patent law when he graduates. Ideally, he would like to practice somewhere on the West coast or in another area with close ties to Asia.

Burton Warrington: Albuquerque, N.M., American Indian Law Center Pre-Law Summer Institute Burton Warrington, a second-year law student from Wisconsin, spent the summer as a teaching assistant in the American Indian Law Center’s Pre-Law Summer Institute (PLSI) at the University of New Mexico School of Law. PLSI simulates eight weeks of law classes intended to replicate the intense experience of the first weeks of law school. Subject matters covered include torts, property, legal analysis, research and writing, and Indian law. The courses are treated the same as they


Burton said PLSI provides much more for the Native American legal community than educational opportunities for new law students. It also serves as a forum for discussing the pressing issues of tribal life and developing solutions. “A lot of people of my generation are looking at not addressing problems as they come, but addressing them before they come,” he said. “There was a lot of discussion of putting tribal customs into formal codes. The hope is that having our customs in written form will help avoid conflict.”

would be in any other law school curriculum, though participating students do not receive credit. The experience is often likened to boot camp by exiting students. “I went back as a teaching assistant because I wanted to give back to the program, but I also had other motivations,” he said. “First off, I have aspirations to be a teacher someday, so I wanted to get that experience. But it is also a prestigious program, and getting so many important people in one place was really beneficial. The program has been in existence for 40 years and most prominent Indian lawyers have been through the program and come back to teach there. Rebecca Tsosie, professor of law at Arizona State University and author of one of the main texts on Indian law, was an instructor in the program. I also had the opportunity to interact with Sam Deloria, who has been director of the program for 36 years. He has been influential in policy on a Congressional level since he started in that position.” Involvement with PLSI flows seamlessly with Burton’s aspirations for his post-law school career. His father was a member of the Menominee Tribe and his mother is a member of the Potawatomi and Ho-Chunk Tribes. He was raised on the Menominee Reservation and his family has a history of leadership in the Menominee Tribe. He feels a sense of duty to follow this tradition. His goal is to use his legal experience to bridge communication gaps between tribal and local, state and federal governments.

Devin S. Sikes: Overland Park, Kan., Sprint Nextel Corporation Devin S. Sikes, a third-year law student and Kansas native, balances a profound admiration for his home with a lively curiosity about foreign cultures and languages. He is pursuing a career in international law and is participating in the International Trade and Finance Certificate Program. He has studied in Spain and Turkey, worked as a law clerk in Argentina, and traveled extensively throughout Europe and Latin America. But Devin spent this summer much closer to home. Devin spent the summer clerking for the Office of General Counsel at Sprint Nextel Corporation in Overland Park, Kan. In keeping with his interests, he was able to work extensively on international commercial transactions. In all, Devin worked on transactions with entities based in more than 11 countries. “I particularly enjoyed finding the devil in the details while working on cross-border transactions,” he said. “I also achieved a greater appreciation for the complexity of internal business operations of a major corporation engaged in the global market and the considerations that weigh on company decisions.” university of kansas

Devin drafted, reviewed and helped close a number of transactions of great benefit to Sprint, including master agreements, services agreements and settlement agreements. He authorized a repayment agreement with a foreign entity that helped Sprint recover more than $1.5 million in overdue payments. He also completed an initial draft of an intellectual property agreement for a Sprint-led joint venture based in Dubai, Saudi Arabia. “I am confident these experiences will contribute to my future and a fruitful career in international legal practice,” he said. Based on his experience with and knowledge of international trade issues, Devin was offered and has accepted a law clerk position with Judge Judith M. Barzilay of the U.S. Court of International Trade in New York. He will begin his clerkship in September 2008. These clerkships are highly sought after by law graduates across the country. Devin will be joined by another KU Law student, John Foote, who will clerk for another judge on the U.S. Court of International Trade, Judge Gregory Carmen.

Danny Moskowitz: Memphis, Tenn., Ballin, Ballin & Fishman Second-year law student Danny Moskowitz spent the summer working for Ballin, Ballin & Fishman, a criminal defense firm in Memphis, Tennessee. The firm’s name may sound familiar to those who followed the notable Mary Winkler case. The firm represented Winkler who was accused of murdering her minister husband. According to MSNBC, Ms. Winkler said her husband had been a highly abusive partner throughout their marriage. She was convicted of voluntary manslaughter.1 According to ABC News, she was sentenced to three years in prison, but given credit for time served and allowed to complete her sentence in a mental hospital.2 “In the Winkler sentencing, Danny was prominently seated behind the firm’s other attorneys,” Marvin Ballin, one of Danny’s supervisors, said. “He wrote the sentencing brief under the supervision of my son (Leslie

Ballin) and Mr. Farese (Steve Farese, another of Winkler’s attorneys), and he did a wonderful job on it.” Danny said his work on a high-profile case like the Winkler sentencing was fun, but that he found most of the cases he worked on equally exciting. His dayto-day work in the practice presented plenty of intriguing challenges. “We saw maybe 150 clients each day, so there was always something interesting to work on,” he said. “There was never a dull moment.” Danny’s experience at Ballin, Ballin & Fishman reinforced his aspiration to practice criminal defense work, including white-collar crime. He came to understand more fully the importance of a good defense for every accused criminal. “My experience there reaffirms that no matter who you are or what you’ve done, you deserve representation under the law,” he said.

Beau Jackson: Washington, D.C., Office of the U.S. Trade Representative With a background working in the Peace Corps in Africa and strong interest in international law, secondyear law student Beau Jackson secured a summer position in the general counsel’s office of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR). The general counsel’s office assigned Beau to the African Affairs Division, where he performed a mix of legal and policy work related to U.S. bilateral relations with African nations. Beau was one of 50 students in the nation selected as a 2007 Sonnenschein Scholar. The program provides selected students with summer stipends to underwrite the cost of student summer public service or policy programs. The Sonnenschein Scholar Program was created by the Sonnenschein Scholar Foundation, an outreach arm of the Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP law firm.


“It was so inspiring to me to have these experiences because it gave me a great idea of what a lawyer should be. If we are going to fight for justice, we have to be acquainted with marginalized people.” – Julie Larson Beau Jackson with colleagues at the USTR.

Beau had many educational opportunities in his role at the USTR. He drew heavily upon the writing skills he developed in his Lawyering classes. “On the legal side I helped draft a trade and investment cooperation agreement with the Southern African Customs Union, worked on a bilateral investment treaty with Rwanda, drafted memoranda regarding International Trade Commission hearings on the abundant supply provisions of recent legislation, and researched appropriate sanctions for an international company accused of illegal transshipment,” Beau said. Beau found his experience immeasurably worthwhile. He not only learned a great deal about practicing international trade law, but he also felt he was able to contribute to the mission of the USTR. “Working at USTR was an endlessly fascinating and educational experience,” he said. “Not only did I gain a foundation of technical skills necessary to become an international trade lawyer, I also had an inside view into the complexities of trade policy formulation. I’m humbled by having had the opportunity to work in such a dynamic environment, and I am grateful for the excellent preparation provided to me by KU Law.”

Julie Larson: Khartoum, Sudan, Mutawinat Legal Aid Clinic During her summer break, second-year law student Julie Larson volunteered with Mutawinat, a legal aid clinic in Khartoum, Sudan, that provides assistance to displaced individuals. Julie has a passion for refugee and asylum law and wanted to spend the summer engaged in legal work in a conflict or post-conflict center. She searched through an on-line refugee rights database and started contacting legal aid organizations that work with internally displaced people. Mutawinat was receptive to having her as a volunteer, so she started making travel plans. She lived with a host family in Khartoum close to the center of the city, which allowed her to visit the refugee and internally displaced persons (IDP) camps and build relationships with the people living there. “With the IDP camps, I always had to go with a Sudanese person who had a permit,” she said. “But the refugee camp was open.

“Not only did I gain a foundation of technical skills necessary to become an international trade lawyer, I also had an inside view into the complexities of trade policy formulation. I’m humbled by having had the opportunity to work in such a dynamic environment.” – Beau Jackson Julie Larson and friends Anab and Cipriano in Khartoum, Sudan.

Ethiopia, Somalia, Iraq and Syria lived there in cardboard boxes behind the UN High Commissioner for Refugees’ home, just a ten-minute walk from my house. They became dear friends to me.” Julie’s main role in assisting Mutawinat was writing grant proposals. Through this work Julie helped fill the organization’s greatest, most time-consuming, need, and she developed firsthand knowledge about the people served by the agency. “They have to submit funding proposals to get money from the UN, CARE, UNICEF, Save the Children and other such organizations, and they spend about 50-60% of their time writing the proposals,” Julie said. “Through my work on the proposals, I got to learn about what kind of legal aid Sudanese refugees need most.” The Sudanese lawyers’ interaction with their clients and the legal process itself were much different than Julie expected when she imagined what her experience would be like. The clinic handled prosecution of some kinds of crimes, such as child rape, but also defended juveniles and worked with clients needing assistance with non-criminal matters.

“Before we went to the IDP camp to meet with clients, I pictured the American way of getting the process moving, but when we arrived, we first sat down and everyone got a Fanta or Coca-Cola and cookies and the lawyers gave human rights and legal awareness workshops,” Julie said. “At the end, they asked people who needed legal assistance to come with them. That day all the people needing assistance were women, mainly involving divorce and alimony-related issues.” In addition to her work with Mutawinat, Julie also spent time working with another legal aid organization, Al Manar. This gave her further insight into the relationship between Sudanese legal aid lawyers and their communities. When flooding in the main IDP camp kept most aid organizations away, Al Manar’s director took Julie with her to assess the damage and begin serving clients. Julie realized how integral the Sudanese lawyers were to their communities. “It was so inspiring to me to have these experiences because it gave me a great idea of what a lawyer should be,” she said. “If we are going to fight for justice, we have to be acquainted with marginalized people. Their philosophy is that


if they are going to serve those people, they can’t be distant bystanders. In legal clinics here (the United States), people come to us, and we can find it kind of scary and uncomfortable. I feel so blessed to have come to know people who see people as people.”

Daniel Belhumeur: Houston, Texas, Ernst & Young LLP Global Energy Center Third-year student Daniel Belhumeur utilized his academic knowledge of international law, international trade law and international investment law as an intern at the Ernst & Young LLP Global Energy Center’s International Tax Services Group in Houston, Texas. Daniel’s assignments were concentrated on international trade treaty analysis and international transaction-based consulting. He drafted, reviewed and researched client issues as related to integrated oil and gas entities and advised clients on international corporate-based restructuring, inbound and outbound transactions and international tax strategies. Daniel’s work also involved analyzing tax treaties relating to transactions in North, Central and South America, Western Europe, Africa and the Middle East. “One particular project involved assessing the international tax consequences associated with a U.S. integrated oil and gas company’s cross-border acquisition of a foreign entity,” Daniel said. “The project required analyzing post-acquisition tax consequences in the United States and the entity’s country of residence. Many issues were taken into consideration for this transaction including applicable tax treaty networks, governing law and the legal and tax system of the acquired company’s country of residence. I also assessed the legitimacy of the acquired company’s country of residence tax system under appropriate international trade agreements.” The internship was a perfect fit for Daniel’s international law interests because representing integrated oil and gas entities requires a high level of technical expertise in international trade and tax. “Effective international trade and tax planning is critical for integrated oil and gas entities because of the global business activities associated with their business model,” Daniel said.

“My ability to analyze the implications of proposed transactions was of significant benefit to Ernst & Young and its clients.”

Conclusion Each of these students returned to KU Law this fall armed with extensive practical knowledge and excitement about the possibilities for their future legal careers. For most of them, their summer experiences reinforced their instincts about the path they would like their careers to take. For others, the magnitude of their experiences left them more contemplative than ever about the best ways to achieve their goals. Either way, they all gained knowledge they could not have otherwise acquired in a traditional classroom setting.

UPDATES & ACHIEVEMENTS

IN DIVERSITY

MAGAZINE RECOGNIZES KU LAW FOR RATE OF DIVERSITY INCREASE

ALUMNUS SPEAKS AT DIVERSITY IN LAW BANQUET

National Jurist magazine has ranked the University of Kansas School of Law second among ABA approved law schools in rate of increase in student diversity. The list appeared in the magazine’s March issue.

The Hispanic American Law Students Association hosted the 12th annual Diversity in Law Banquet on March 3. This event brings together students, faculty and alumni from across the country to celebrate KU Law’s proud tradition of admitting and graduating students from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

KU Law recorded a 201 percent increase in enrollment of minority students between the years 2000 and 2005. At law schools nationwide, minority enrollment has declined by 5 percent or greater at 57 percent of schools, while it has increased by 5 percent or more at 85 U.S. law schools.

Increasing and celebrating diversity and the ways in which diversity enhances the educational experience of all KU Law students has long been an institutional focus. In recent months, exciting and noteworthy achievements have demonstrated the success of these efforts.

Dean Gail Agrawal said this achievement is a reflection of the School’s long-standing commitment to an improvement in the institution’s diversity.

“From its Free State origins, KU Law was founded on principles of inclusiveness; a commitment to diversity is in the very bricks and mortar of this place,” she said. “Under the leadership of former dean Professor Steve McAllister, we began an active and comprehensive effort to increase the diversity of our student body. We continue to build on that foundation to improve the number and the percentage of students of color in our classes and the diversity of our faculty and staff. While much remains to be done before our reality fully matches our values and aspirations in this regard, we are proud of our accomplishments and grateful for the recognition of the National Jurist.”

Fall/Winter 2007

The banquet serves as an important fundraiser for the Minority Scholarship Fund and provides an opportunity for students and faculty to celebrate the contributions of culturally diverse individuals to the legal profession. Students from the Asian American Law Students Association, Black Law Students Association, Hispanic American Law Students Association and Native American Law Students Association collaborate in supporting the banquet and take turns hosting the event.

Robert Correales, L’91, assistant professor of law at the University of Nevada Las Vegas William S. Boyd School of Law, presented the keynote address at the event. Michelle Delgado, 2007-08 HALSA President and second-year student, said Professor Correales focused on diversity in education in his address. “The theme of his address was supporting diversity in education while addressing some of the hurdles that minority students have faced or may face when pursuing higher education,” she said. “And he also thanked Professor (Ellen) Sward for supporting him throughout his time here at KU Law.”


Robert Correales, L’91 keynote speaker at Diversity in Law Banquet.

FIVE KU LAW STUDENTS RECEIVE DIVERSITY CLERKSHIPS The Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association Summer Diversity Clerkship Pilot Program awarded summer clerkships to five students at the University of Kansas School of Law. The program is an effort to provide employment opportunities to diverse first-year law students at KU, the University of Missouri, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Washburn University. Participating firms made full-time, paid summer job offers to nine students, five of them KU Law students: Vedrana Balta, Polsinelli Shalton Flanigan Suelthaus PC; Trinia Arellana, Van Osdol, Magruder, Erickson & Redmond PC; Daniel Morris, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LP; Jomana Qaddour, Stinson Morrison Hecker LLP; and Helen White, Shughart Thomson & Kilroy PC. White said she was able to build on the knowledge she developed as a 1L by gaining first-hand experience in the practice of law through the program. “I feel honored that I can be a part of such a worthwhile program. I was able to apply some of the legal learning and research skills I acquired during my first year,” she said. “I have a better understanding of the American legal system and how to shape my future career within it.”

SCHOOL OF LAW RECEIVES KU BLACK FACULTY AND STAFF AWARD The KU Black Faculty and Staff Council (BFSC) awarded the law school its 2007 BFSC Unit Award in recognition of the law school’s success in the recent hiring of faculty and staff members whose inclusion increases KU Law’s diversity. Hobart Jackson, president of the council and associate professor of architecture, presented the Unit Award to Dean Gail Agrawal during ceremonies in April honoring black faculty, staff and students. To date only three other university units have been recognized by the BFSC with this award.

Qaddour said she appreciates the firms’ commitment to providing opportunities for highachieving law students from a variety of backgrounds. “As one of the few Arab-Americans in the area studying law, it is nice to know that these firms are looking for students with my experience and background,” Qaddour said. “My hope is that I was able to contribute to my work environment in a way that reflects the essence of the Middle East: honesty, hard work and a constant passion to learn.” One representative of each participating firm gathered in February to determine how to apply selection criteria and review applications. They received more than 30 applications and interviewed 19 first-year law students in late February.

REGULATION OF GMOs FOCUS OF

LAW JOURNAL SYMPOSIUM Perhaps because food is such a basic part of our lives, few topics have sparked the kind of intense discussion and disagreement as that of genetically modified crops and foods. Questions about their safety and optimism regarding their ability to improve health and reduce the environmental impact of agriculture have framed the debate regarding their proper role.

European Institute for Food Law; Jody Roberts, Gordon Cain Fellow, Chemical Heritage Foundation; Margaret R. Grossman, Bock Chair in Agricultural Law, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Drew Kershen, Earl Sneed Centennial Professor of Law, University of Oklahoma; and Rebecca Bratspies, associate professor, City University of New York School of Law.

The Kansas Journal of Law & Public Policy hosted a forum on the regulation, science and philosophy of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on March 15.

In his opening presentation, Torrance discussed the origins of genetic engineering and GMOs. He traced the history of genetic engineering from concept to reality and described the controversy that has followed developments in the field. Additionally, Torrance argued the suspected health and safety concerns about GMOs largely have been scientifically disproven. He said this is why GMO critics have refocused their questions to the potential problems for farmers in allowing patents to be held on GMO crops.

Andrew Torrance, associate professor of law at KU, said this controversial topic sparked the kind of engaging discussion hoped for by the event’s organizers. “GMOs, including genetically modified crops, have sparked more controversy than almost any other new technology,” he said. “Although society has demanded that the law ensure safe regulation of GMOs, this challenging task must be accomplished within a witches’ brew of complex science, woeful ignorance, high anxiety and sky-high hopes.” John Smolen, L’07 and 2006-07 journal editor in chief, said the symposium achieved a good balance between the vastly different perspectives on this divisive issue. “I was pleased to have observed farmers, policy makers and lawyers ostensibly on both sides of the GMO debate,” he said. “Each felt free to contribute to the discussion, and I think all benefited as a result. Being as GMOs are coming to Kansas, we were pleased to facilitate an intellectually stimulating conversation about that, and we hope that our record of the affair proves useful to our state’s policy makers and other stakeholders as Kansas figures out how it’s going to handle genetically modified foodstuffs.” The following experts spoke at the event: Torrance; Bernd van der Muelen, professor of law and governance, Wageningen University, and director of the

Van der Muelen presented the Judge Nelson Timothy Stephens Lecture and discussed regulation of GMO crops and foods in the European Union under the precautionary principle, which is the guiding rule for regulation of GMOs in the E.U. Van der Muelen said because the science is not sorted out as to the possible dangers of GMOs, the E.U. has taken an approach that calls for caution as to health and environmental safety in allowing GMOs to be grown and distributed. The question of why we need GMO crops at all was the focus of Roberts’ presentation. He said we should be asking ourselves why there is a need to explore the use of GMO crops when it is possible to utilize organic and low-impact farming techniques, thereby protecting the environment and human health without creating unanticipated consequences. He suggested selection of farming technologies should be conducted in a democratic fashion.


Associate Professor Rebecca Bratpies

Grossman discussed the legal and regulatory implications of the contamination of standard or organic seeds by genetically modified seeds, specifically the treatment of this issue in the E.U. She discussed the requirements for tracing and labeling in the E.U. and questioned whether these regulations have the ability to address concerns about contamination. A passionate appeal for use of GMOs to address humanitarian and environmental concerns was the focus on Kershen’s presentation. He said people who are uneasy about the unknown possible effects of GMO crops on human health and the environment should consider the potential GMO crops hold to alleviate famine and manage disease around the world. He pointed to “golden rice” as a representative example of the kind of product that has the potential to improve the health of people in developing countries, but has been viewed with cautiousness because of fears regarding its safety. Golden rice is a genetically modified crop that has been fortified with vitamin A to help prevent blindness and reduce child mortality in developing nations where rice is a dietary staple. He said the developers of the technology have offered to donate the crop for humanitarian uses.

Bratspies presented a lecture on the U.S. approach to regulation of GMOs, which bears some significant differences to the approach used in the E.U. While the E.U. utilizes the precautionary principle in determining how to regulate GMOs, she said there are no mandatory guidelines or mechanisms for enforcement relating to GMOs in the U.S. She described the difficulties in regulating science and technology and pointed out that not only do we not have mechanisms in place for regulation of GMOs in the U.S., it is not even clear how to define GMOs, which could conceivably fall under food or medicine or some other label. As a result, three different U.S. federal agencies – the Food and Drug Administration, Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Agriculture – have a potential role to play in regulation of GMOs. Heather Ousley, L’07 and the journal’s symposium editor, was pleased with the level of participation and interaction with the speakers. “The spirited discussion between presenters and the well-articulated questions from the audience kept the symposium interesting and thought provoking,” she said. “I was excited to have the day come together so well.” The papers of all symposium participants will be published in the Kansas Journal of Law & Public Policy.

FORMER JAPANESE CONSUL GENERAL LECTURES AT DIPLOMAT’S FORUM

Takao Shibata, the former Consul General of Japan in Kansas City, presented a public lecture titled “The United Nations and America: A Japanese Perspective” at KU Law in March. Shibata’s presentation was part of the Diplomat’s Forum, a prestigious annual event co-sponsored by the KU Law School and the KU Center for East Asian Studies. Dean Gail Agrawal said the Diplomat’s Forum is the most important international legal event presented by the law school. The event’s aim is to provide a platform for an open sharing of thoughts on international relations, the law and the United States through the unique perspective of someone with experience in diplomatic service. Shibata was the 2006-07 University of Kansas Chancellor’s Lecturer. In this capacity he presented lectures for the KU Center for East Asian Studies and in other disciplines throughout the university. He also spent time meeting with groups of students, faculty and community members to share his knowledge and experiences as an economist and diplomat and his role in the drafting of the Kyoto Protocol. Shibata was Consul General of Japan in Kansas City, Mo., from 2002 until the Kansas City office was closed in 2004. He has also served in the Japanese embassies in Nigeria, Pakistan, Sweden and Zimbabwe and in the position of Permanent Mission of Japan to the United Nations. Shibata was chairman of the drafting committee for the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, an agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change on the reduction of greenhouse gases.

FACULTY KUDOS Members of the law faculty have been recognized for their outstanding service, teaching and interaction with students in many ways. Elizabeth Cateforis, L’94 and Clinical Associate Professor of Law, received an Outstanding Service Award from the Kansas Bar Association at the group’s annual meeting in June. The KBA Continuing Education Committee nominated Cateforis for the award in recognition of her work on the fourth edition of the Kansas Criminal Law Handbook. Cateforis has supervised students in the Paul E. Wilson Defender Project since 1999. Prior to joining the faculty, she was an assistant appellate defender at the Kansas Appellate Defender Office for five years. KBA Outstanding Service Awards are given to recognize lawyers and judges for service to the legal profession or the KBA and to recognize non-lawyers for especially meritorious deeds or service that significantly advance the administration of justice or the goals of the legal profession. No more than six Outstanding Service Awards may be given in one year. Professor Emeritus Robert C. Casad received a KBA award for 50 years of service to the legal profession at the KBA annual meeting in June. Casad joined the KU Law faculty in 1959 and was named John H. and John M. Kane Professor of Law in 1981 in recognition of his internationally-known scholarship in civil procedure, jurisdiction and conflict of laws. His work is often quoted and cited by legal practitioners. In 1997 he retired from classroom teaching, but continues his research and writing activities.

CAREER SERVICES UPDATE By: Todd Rogers, Assistant Dean

The Office of Career Services recently unveiled a web-based method of organizing and disseminating job-search information to students, alumni and employers. Our goals for the 2006-07 academic year included both streamlining and modernizing our operations and making our services more accessible to all of our constituencies. In the fall of 2006, we carefully compared the features of the two most widely used, webbased products in the law school career services market before deciding to purchase Easelaw. We trained on Easelaw in the spring and worked with their customer service representatives to build an interactive web site to allow students to electronically submit resumes for on-campus interviews and other job opportunities. We debuted Easelaw in May. Students and employers alike had time to adjust to the new technology before on-campus interview season began in mid-August. Students now post their application materials on Easelaw several weeks in advance of the oncampus interviews. Employers log onto our custom-built website at www.easelaw.com/ kula to review cover letters, resumes, transcripts and writing samples. The employers designate on Easelaw the students they wish to interview, and students are directed by email to schedule an interview time on line. The “wailing wall” method of notifying students of their selection for an interview and the early morning trips to our office to sign up for interview times, have been replaced by a convenient, confidential web site that can be accessed around the clock. The next step is to build an accurate database of alumni to allow them to more easily connect with those who are interested in participating in the career development of our students. The registration process is simple. When you arrive at the Easelaw website (www.easelaw.com/ kula), click on “Alumni/Mentor” and complete the brief profile. At the end of the profile you will see several questions concerning annual Career Services events and activities such as

our Alumni Network, 1L Mentor Program, Legal Career Options Day and others. Please indicate your interest in these programs, as we would like to move away from mass-mailed invitations. Once we hear from you via Easelaw about your willingness to participate in one or more of our events, we will follow up with a prompt email. In the next few months we will be moving our job postings from the main KU Law website to Easelaw. Only students and alumni who are registered on Easelaw will have access to these job postings. Also, as an Easelawregistered alumnus or alumna you will be able to quickly and easily enter your own job postings when the need arises to hire law clerks or additional attorneys. On a related note, students have the option of making their resumes available in an interactive, searchable databank on Easelaw. Several employers have already taken advantage of this unique feature to search for students who fit their hiring needs. If you are interested in interviewing a student on-campus please let us know. Also, through our relationship with Law School Connect we are now part of a nationwide remote videoconference-interviewing network that includes law schools, law firms, legal non-profits and judges. If you are interested in interviewing a student via videoconference, we will gladly make these arrangements. Please take a couple of minutes to submit your contact information on Easelaw, even if you have shared this information with us in the recent past. By doing so you provide a great service to the students of KU Law and pave the way for a more efficient and interactive utilization of our office’s recruiting efforts.

Joyce McCray Pearson, Director of the Wheat Law Library and Associate Professor of Law, received the Douglas County Bar Association’s Liberty Bell Award on May 1 in recognition of her work in establishing the law library at the downtown courthouse. Judge Terry Bullock presented her with the award. Pearson has been with the KU law library since 1994, serving initially as electronic services librarian. In 1995 she was named the associate director of the library, and in 1997 she became director of the law library and associate professor of law. She participates in the legal research component of the Lawyering course for first-year students and teaches Advanced Legal Research and Law and Literature. She has published extensively in both law and librarianship and is active in national and regional law library associations. Professor John W. Head received the 2007 Dean Frederick J. Moreau Award. Just before the traditional Walk to Old Green on the last day of spring classes, Student Bar Association President Dan Calderon, L’07, presented Head with the award. Head is an outstanding teacher who has held the prestigious Schroeder Teaching Fellowship. He previously received the Moreau Award in 2000 and has been awarded the Kemper Teaching Award, the Provost’s Award for Leadership in International Education, the Immel Award for Teaching Excellence and the Graduate Mentor of the Year Award. Head coaches the school’s highly successful international law moot court teams and is a sponsor of the K.U. International Law Society. The Moreau Award honors Dean Frederick J. Moreau who served as dean from 1937 through 1957. Jean Moreau established the award in 1987 to perpetuate her husband’s memory. Each year SBA officers seek nominations from the student body for a faculty member who they consider to have been particularly helpful in advising and counseling students. Upon consideration of the nominees, the SBA makes a final selection.

FUNERAL PICKETING LAWS AND FREE SPEECH: EXCERPT By: Professor Stephen R. McAllister

IV. THE CHALLENGES OF ENACTING CONSTITUTIONAL FUNERAL PICKETING ACTS A. A Philosophical Question The funeral picketing laws raise the important philosophical question whether speech conveying deliberately hurtful messages—often referred to as hate speech—really deserves First Amendment protection at all. This is a fundamental question about the nature of our First Amendment and its protection of freedom of speech in America. The question is hardly novel, but it clearly arises in the context of the funeral picketing laws. And, of course, a corollary problem if courts pursue a hate speech doctrine is what exactly constitutes hate speech? Are some deeply offensive messages still part of the public debate, even if ill-informed, bigoted, and offensive, or do they so exceed the bounds of societal acceptance that they are outside constitutional protection? The Supreme Court thus far has declined to carve out a category of hate speech subject to greater restrictions. Indeed, for the most part, the Supreme Court effectively has refused to engage in picking and choosing between the acceptability or condemnation of any particular messages, whether the cases have involved racially or ethnically or otherwise derogatory speech,127 or even the burning of an American flag to convey disrespect for American government.128 The only exception appears to be a situation in which the speech effectively conveys an actual or true threat of violence and intimidation, not just offensiveness.129 Certainly, arguments can be and have been made that hate speech stands on different footing than much other potentially offensive speech and, therefore, should be subject to greater restrictions.130 But to this point, that is an academic and philosophical argument, one the Supreme Court has not yet accepted in the First Amendment context. Were such an argument to be adopted, it might well strengthen the justifications for the funeral picketing laws considerably, since the messages of the Westboro Baptist Church are more than just offensive—they are hateful and deliberately provocative with respect to their target audiences.

B. Pragmatic Considerations 1. Attention to Hateful Messages Our very attention to the funeral picketers has fueled their “success.” Had Americans and the media been able to ignore the picketers, it seems likely that their funeral protests would have ceased. But the fact that their activities generate such outrage—including so much new legislation— emboldens rather than discourages the Westboro Baptist Church. Thus, one easily could conclude that the enactment of state funeral picketing laws ironically has prolonged the practice of funeral picketing, rather than deterring or stopping it. Newspapers and media outlets in Kansas are well aware that publicly criticizing the activities of the Westboro Baptist Church only seems to encourage the church’s members. The author recently attended a funeral for a deceased government lawyer at which the picketers were present. Rather than let the picketers upset them, family members and friends made clear during the service that the departed lawyer would have viewed the protesters’ presence as a badge of honor. But adopting such an attitude toward the protesters is perhaps easier said than done,

demonstrating” to injunctive and declaratory relief (i.e., no damages allowed); and (2) no attorney’s fees could be awarded under § 1988 in such cases.132 Furthermore, the proposal includes a section prohibiting the awarding of attorney’s fees in any lawsuits challenging federal funeral picketing laws.133

In the long run, the most effective strategy of all may be simply to ignore the funeral picketers. Even assuming some versions of the funeral picketing laws ultimately are found to be constitutional, it seems unlikely that any sizeable buffer zone This proposal attempts a very lawyerly approach to the will pass muster. Thus, the best-case scenario may be that the situation, but it may be both unconstitutional and a bad funeral protesters are only a few hundred feet or less from the idea from a policy standpoint. As for constitutionality, entrances to cemeteries and churches where funerals are being the Constitution may not compel Congress to create a held. I do not claim to begin to understand fully how some of civil cause of action for plaintiffs whose constitutional the families are grieving at such a time but, perhaps, upon rights have been violated by state or local officials.

First, it is constitutional to prohibit noise or physical interference that actually disrupts or disturbs a funeral or memorial service. Second, it is constitutional to


ensure unimpeded access to and egress from a funeral or memorial service. Third, given the substantial privacy interests at stake in the context of a funeral, and the at least somewhat captive nature of the mourners who attend, some kind of limited, tailored buffer zone likely is constitutionally acceptable. Beyond these propositions, everything becomes arguable. And even relying on the foregoing three propositions, there are not necessarily clear answers as to how to enact a constitutional law. Guaranteeing access is constitutional, but the more difficult question is how to do so? And even assuming some buffer zone is constitutional, certainly anything greater than 100 feet seems inherently suspect under the Supreme Court’s cases, and there is no clear indication in those cases that even 100 feet will pass muster. Thus, my best advice to those considering the enactment of, or defending the implementation of, any of the funeral picketing laws is to focus on the foregoing three principles and to enact or defend the narrowest law that one’s constituencies can tolerate.

V. CONCLUSION Though it may be a bedrock principle of the First Amendment that “government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea itself offensive or disagreeable,”135 it similarly is a bedrock principle that people need not hear or tolerate every message no matter where conveyed.136 Thus, some careful and thoughtful restrictions on funeral picketing may pass constitutional muster. But emotional reactions written into law as zealous restrictions may only line the protesters’ pockets with attorney’s fees if and when the courts strike down unconstitutional laws. And, even assuming that only constitutional laws are enacted, a serious question remains whether such legislation actually furthers the goal of dissuading the protesters from their offensive and provocative actions. The more attention the Westboro Baptist Church receives, the more likely its members are to continue and even to expand their activities. Paying them no notice whatsoever, or viewing their presence near a funeral as a sort of badge of honor for the deceased and the mourners, would be the truest triumph of all. And unquestionably constitutional.

Amusingly, the preamble to the bill reads “[t]o amend the Revised Statutes of the United States to provide for legal protection against frivolous lawsuits directed at statutes prohibiting picketing at military and other funerals.” H.R. 6157 pmbl. (emphasis added). The irony, of course, is that if the funeral picketing laws in fact violate the First Amendment, a lawsuit challenging them is hardly frivolous. But if, instead, the lawsuits are frivolous, then plaintiffs will not prevail and there is no basis for awarding either damages or attorney’s fees under sections 1983 and 1988 anyway, so there is no need to change the law. 133. Section 1983, with its requirement that the offending officials act “under color of” state law, does not apply to the enforcement of federal law. Presumably, a suit against federal officials would be brought as a Bivens action in federal court, as an implied right of action arising under the First Amendment. See Bivens v. Six Unknown Unnamed Agents, 403 U.S. 388, 390 & n.1 (1971) (finding that the complaint did state a cause of action under the Fourth Amendment because the complaint alleged that the arrest was done “unlawfully, unreasonably and contrary to law”). Or, a claim of unconstitutionality would arise as a defense to a criminal prosecution for violation of the federal act. Cf. United States v. Grace, 461 U.S. 171, 173–74 (1983) (hearing a suit regarding the unconstitutionality of a federal statute from two petitioners who were subject to arrest for their actions). But, in either event, the American Rule is that each party generally bears its own attorney expenses, and the only real exception is when a statute—such as § 1988— explicitly authorizes fee awards. The general understanding seems to be that attorney’s fees are not available in Bivens actions, precisely because there is no statutory authorization for them. And it is not apparent that any other federal statute would authorize such fees in the context of challenging the federal funeral picketing law. So Representative Tiahrt’s proposal may be a nullity and unnecessary in this regard. Furthermore, the Congressman’s proposal does not purport to limit or preclude awards of damages in suits against the United States or federal officials, see H.R. 6157, § 3, so it is not clear that his proposal would have any effect whatsoever on current law that otherwise would apply in litigation challenging the federal act. 134. Funeral picketers apparently are not the only target of congressional proposals to amend and limit sections 1983 and 1988. Another such effort passed the House of Representatives in late September 2006. Known as the Veterans’ Memorials, Boy Scouts, Public Seals, and Other Public Expressions of Religion Protection Act of 2007, H.R. 725, 110th Cong. (2007), that bill “would bar courts from awarding any [§ 1988] attorney[’s] fees to plaintiffs who successfully challenge government expression or endorsement of religion” under the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause.

Schultz, 487 U.S. 474, 488 (1988) (holding that a prohibition on picketing was valid because it protected individuals who were “presumptively unwilling to receive it”); Rowan v.

WE CAN RUN, BUT WE CAN’T HIDE:

International and Comparative Law Come to Criminal Procedure By: Professor David Gottlieb, Associate Dean for Clinical Programs

Like many or most of the more senior readers of this magazine, I came of age at a time when International Law was regarded as a discrete and somewhat esoteric subject. Those of us going into practices where we were going to represent the concerns of “ordinary people” in the criminal area assumed that the law we would be applying would be state law or, at most, federal constitutional law. The clients I represented at the beginning of my practice were caught in the vice of state criminal law. Most of the time, their legal claims involved assertion of matters of state procedural law or, at most, federal constitutional law. The idea that the acts they committed or the procedure upon which they relied could involve international law seemed far-fetched, to put it mildly. Things have changed. Just as our globalized commercial environment has expanded the dimension of commercial law, our globalized world has changed the way in which anti-social acts are adjudicated. The increased human traffic across borders makes it more likely that criminal defendants will hail from abroad. The interdependence that is a feature of our life makes it more likely that acts we prosecute will occur abroad. Our signature to a number of treaties means that individuals coming into our custody may have newly-minted rights or protections. Finally, the internet revolution gives us the ability to access international and comparative law sources that would have entirely eluded us in previous generations In the space that follows, then, I wish to highlight just a few prominent examples of the way in which international legal principles have appeared in major cases. The most dramatic appearance of international law has been in cases surrounding our anti-terrorism policies. Here, international law does not appear merely as an interpretive option, or even because of the existence of an applicable treaty, but because of its incorporation into domestic law itself. The best example of this process is probably Hamdan v. Rumsfeld,1 the Military Commissions case. Hamdan was a Yemeni national, who was believed to have been Osama Bin-Laden’s driver. He was turned over to the United States in 2001 by the Northern Alliance and taken to the facility at Guantanamo. Eventually, he was brought before a Military Commission to face charges of conspiracy to commit attacks against civilians and acts of terrorism.

This Military Commission procedure, established by Executive Order in November of 2001, differed radically from the protections offered by civilian courts or by traditional courts martial under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The Commission process allowed the exclusion from portions of the trial of the defendant and defendant’s counsel and the admission of “any” evidence that in the opinion of the tribunal might aid in its determination. The construction of the commission also differed from a regular court martial. By a 5-3 vote, the Court struck down the President’s Commission procedure. The majority noted that in time of war, where military necessity requires, military commissions may provide for summary procedures. However, these deviations from ordinary Constitutional process or courts martial must be consistent with the “law of war.” That “law of war” in turn derives from the rules and precepts of international law of war, primarily the Geneva Conventions. The Court noted that the Geneva conventions require that trials be conducted by a “regularly constituted court” with those procedures recognized as “indispensable by civilized peoples.” Both the plurality opinion of Justice Stevens and the concurring opinion of


Justice Kennedy concluded that in the absence of an immediate emergency or Congressional authorization, a trial in which the defendant could be excluded or any evidence admitted did not constitute a “regularly constituted court” with adequate procedures. A second use of international law is the effort to apply directly a treaty, on the grounds that the instrument itself provides rights to the defendant. Sanchez-Llamas v. Oregon2 presents an application, albeit ultimately unsuccessful for the defendant, of this process. The defendant was charged with homicide and, during his incarceration, the police secured a confession from him. The Vienna Convention on Consular Relations requires that a person detained in a foreign country be informed of his right to notify his own country’s consular officials. Oregon police had failed to notify Sanchez-Llamas, a Mexican national, of this right prior to securing the confession, and Sanchez-Llamas argued that the confession must, therefore, be suppressed. A majority of the Court rejected the argument that SanchezLlamas was entitled to suppression. Although acknowledging the applicability of the treaty, the Court noted that it mandates no specific remedy for violation of one of its provisions. The majority then stated it would not read the treaty to imply that suppression be required. Justice Breyer dissented in part on the suppression question, in an opinion joined by Justices Stevens and Souter. The dissenters noted that the treaty requires each signatory to give full effect to its purposes. They reasoned that in cases where no other remedy could give such effect, suppression might be required. While the Court seemingly rejected that position, both the majority and dissent assumed that the treaty, in fact, did apply to the defendant, and that he, in fact, did possess the right to be notified. Even though the Court was unwilling to reverse the defendant’s conviction, it did acknowledge the existence of an obligation that almost assuredly was unknown to most members of police and prosecution prior to the opinion. The third example of application of international law is the use of Court opinions or legal standards as evidence of “the decent opinion of mankind,” as persuasive authority in the same manner that opinions from sister states are used in domestic litigation in state courts. A recent and controversial example of the process came in the Supreme Court’s decision striking down the death penalty for 2 3

offenders under 18 as a violation of the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment. In Roper v. Simmons3, Justice Kennedy noted that the Supreme Court has referred to the laws and opinions of other countries as “instructive” for its interpretation of the meaning of cruel and unusual punishment. The majority then declared relevant the “stark fact that the United States is the only country in the world that continues to give official sanction to the juvenile death penalty.” Justice Kennedy also noted the number of international conventions prohibiting the practice and the scarcity of reported executions, and declared this opinion “respected and significant confirmation” of the Court’s own views. To put it mildly, Justice Kennedy’s decision to rely upon foreign opinion was not received with unbounded enthusiasm. In an opinion joined by Justice Thomas and Chief Justice Rehnquist, Justice Scalia excoriated the majority for its reliance upon foreign law or practice. He argued that reliance upon the view of international sources for guidance on the meaning of cruel and unusual punishment was hypocritical if foreign law was discounted in consideration of the necessity of the exclusionary rule or the validity of abortion restrictions. Despite Justice Scalia’s derision, it is almost certain that the internationalization of criminal law and procedure will not abate. We have continued to sign international instruments, making more probable incorporation of some of these sources into domestic law. As a result of the success of our Constitutional system, our language of rights is no longer unique. Countries all over the world are applying language such as equal protection and cruel and unusual punishment, adding to the potential source of persuasive material. Moreover, access to these authorities has become much easier. The internet has placed international conventions and foreign cases at the fingertips of public defenders and prosecutors in a way that was unthinkable to us when we entered practice. You should know that this evolution is reflected in our teaching as well as practice. It is now common to include consideration of practice abroad not only in stand-alone courses in comparative criminal law and procedure, but as a part of basic criminal procedure. While these sources of law will never supplant state and federal sources, they are a part of our atmosphere in a way that we would not have imagined a generation ago.

50/50+ REUNION

Class members from 1957 and earlier gathered in Lawrence this past April to celebrate KU Law’s annual 50/50+ Reunion. Reunion attendees, many accompanied by spouses, represented the classes of 1940, 1942, 1944, 1947, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1954, 1955 and 1956. Eleven 50-year returnees attended from the class of 1957. Members of the class of 1957 were interviewed by current law students and staff. The interviews were recorded and added to the growing collection of past 50 year reunion attendee interviews. The collection offers a rare glimpse into the rich history of KU Law in the words of its graduates.

During the traditional reunion dinner, held this year at the Adams Alumni Center, Dean Gail Agrawal addressed the group. She also passed the microphone to reunion attendees who took the opportunity to share stories and reminisce about their student years.

LETTER

FROM

THE

DEAN

Dear Alumni and Friends of KU Law, The annual giving report from the period that corresponds with my first year as dean follows this letter to you. It is an impressive list. Over sixteen percent of our alumni made a gift to us this year, a significant increase over prior years. We welcomed ten new James Woods Green Medallion honorees. Deans Club membership is up substantially. And, I am especially heartened by the early commitment from the Class of 2007. Members of that class made a three-year pledge to begin June 1, 2008. Eight members of that class beat the clock by 11 months, making their first gifts within weeks after commencement. On behalf of the students, staff, and faculty of KU Law, thank you. Your gifts make the difference between a good and a great educational experience for our students. They provide scholarships and financial aid to students who would otherwise incur large debts to pursue their legal educations. They support cutting-edge faculty research and provide for important educational enrichment programs. They ensure a first-class law library. And, they enable us to maintain a strong learning and teaching environment in “new� Green Hall. The tangible effects of your generosity are essential to us in these times of increasing costs and decreasing state support. But, your gifts also have other, less tangible but no less important effects. To the institutions that accredit and rank American law schools, 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. It is a legacy to be celebrated. You will read in this issue about KU Law students who are making a difference in our world, working in areas devastated by floods, famine, or war. The faculty is working at the frontiers of legal knowledge. We are hosting conferences to examine emerging legal issues that affect the environment in which we live: global warming and climate change and the intersection between bioscience, genetics, and law. In a world that is increasingly flat, our international law program is thriving. Our law school community continues to benefit from the wisdom and insights of our senior faculty members, even as we welcome two new highly qualified faculty colleagues to our ranks. These are exciting times at KU Law. Your gifts make our successes possible. I ask you to support us as you can. We have made great strides this year. Our next goal is to reach 25 percent annual giving, the average for public schools nationally. Every gift counts, every year. We promise to use your money wisely to build an even stronger KU Law School. Rock Chalk,

Gail B. Agrawal Dean and Professor of Law. 44
