Powell Celebration

All roads converged in Lexington the week of Sept. 17 to honor Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell ’29A, ’31 and his judicial legacy. The weeklong event kicked off with the Powell Symposium, which brought together some of the most important voices currently engaged in the ongoing debate between the First Amendment and national security. Lewis Powell III ’74A said his father would probably have been “embarrassed by the attention directed his way, but gratiFrom left to right: James B. Comey, Dayo Abah, Kathleen Sullivan, Rod Smolla, David Westin, and Chuck Rosenberg. fied that W&L continues to play a role in shaping the contours of a debate that is ever more important today than it was when he participated in the Branzburg v. Hayes decision.” He continued, “Anyone who has followed history lately understands the role of a free and brave and vigorous press in making sure the government keeps its skirts clean.” And he praised panelists James B. Comey, former deputy attorney general, and Chuck Rosenberg, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, as two public servants who were willing to go toe to toe with the president of the United States during a time of crisis. “When the full verdict of history is rendered on how the war on terror was waged internally, and when we know the full story, we will be more proud of them than we are already.” Symposium Participants On Sept. 19, Linda Greenhouse, New ..............................................................................

Robert T. Danforth, professor of law and Alumni Faculty Fellow, has been appointed associate dean for academic affairs. An expert in trusts and estates, estate

planning and taxation, Danforth served as a lecturer at the University of Virginia School of Law before joining W&L as an assistant professor in 1997. He recently chaired the search committee to fill the position of University provost. “I could not be more excited about joining Rod Smolla as he commences his deanship at Washington and Lee,” said Danforth. “Our Law School is blessed with a superb and dedicated administrative team, with whom I am honored to have been given the opportunity to work. The Law School has all the ingredients—bright, hard-working students, talented and energetic faculty and a first-rate group of administrators—for a very bright future.” Danforth earned his J.D. with high honors in 1986 from Duke University. He then served as a judicial clerk for the Hon. Stephanie K. Seymour, United States Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit. He entered academia after practicing law for 10 years, first at Arnold & Porter and then McGuire Woods.

The Law School celebrated its 152nd commencement on May 12, awarding 124 J.D. degrees and four LL.M. degrees. The graduates began their legal careers in 26 different states and one foreign country, BosniaHerzogovina. Eighteen graduates will go on to judicial clerkships, and 56 percent of employed graduates will work for law firms. The commencement ceremony opened with an invocation by William J.

Grisham believes the question is still valid today and that the answer is a resounding “Yes.” Recounting the suffering and need he has witnessed around the country while researching his novels or engaging in philanthropy, Grisham urged graduates to get involved with pro bono organizations such as the Innocence Project, a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted people through DNA testing. “Until you use your license and your brains and your enthusiasm and your youthfulness to reach out, to reach down and to help someone less fortunate, you won’t realize the power the law has to protect people,” said Grisham.

In April, Bill Goodell ’80 and his wife, Betsy ’80, stood before a small gathering in Classroom A to explain why they wished to name this room after Julian H. Robertson Jr., founder of Tiger Management Corp. and Goodell’s former employer. Goodell, president of the Robertson Foundation, opened his remarks with a brief recap of his W&L background. Betsy’s father graduated from the College, the couple met here and their daughter, Jackie, is a member of the Class of 2010. He continued, “There are three reasons we wanted to have Julian Robertson’s name associated with this law school. First, it’s been a blessing and a privilege to be a part of the Tiger management team and to be associated with Julian, Josie and their family. The generous compensation awarded all of us at Tiger has allowed for this gift and many others like it from our colleagues to other institutions and nonprofits. “Second, Julian and Josie have instilled in their children, their family and their business associates a culture of philanthropy that is unparalleled. But third, and most importantly, is Julian’s commitment to integrity that resonates so richly with our values at W&L. When one deconstructs the relationship between a hedge fund manager and his clients, at the core, it’s about being a fiduciary. There are manifold opportunities in the day-to-day operations of a very complex investment partnership for the interests of management and the limited partners/investors to conflict. As Tiger and the other early hedge funds grew and prospered, frequently there was no black-letter law that dictated the outcome of a problem. Issues of first impression abounded—and this can be the devil’s playground.” Goodell concluded, “But as one writer noted about

From l. to r.: Betsy ’80 and Bill Goodell ’80 and Josie and Julian Robertson.

Gen. R. E. Lee, ‘Leaders transmit values and embrace truth and integrity by walking their talk.’ By doing that consistently and unapologetically for the 27 years of Tiger’s existence, Julian has built an organization with a reputation for unimpeachable ethics. Every lawyer aspires to have a client who provides intellectual challenge, the opportunity to earn great reward and who has a moral and ethical construct. I have been privileged to have such a client in Julian Robertson.”

The

Class of 2010 This fall, 116 students matriculated at W&L. As always, the stats of the entering class are extremely impressive, but going beyond the numbers reveals interesting surprises, too. Here’s a look at the newest members of the Law School community.

First-year law students gather on the new patio, located just off the TV lounge, around the corner from the Brief Stop. The Class of ’67 funded this project in honor of its 10th Reunion.

Who Are The y? The Numbers The median LSAT score is 166, representing the 93rd percentile. The median undergraduate grade point average is 3.62, a slight uptick from last year’s median of 3.61. One quarter earned a 3.81 or above, a marked improvement over last year’s 75th percentile GPA of 3.73. Twenty-two members of the class (19 percent) have identified themselves as minorities: 10 are Black/African American, six are Asian/Pacific Islanders, two are Hispanic/Latino, one is Canadian Aboriginal and three are mixed ethnicity. The class is 36 percent female and 64 percent male. The median age is 23, and students range in age from 18 to 45.

Promotions & Appointments Elizabeth Outland Branner was promoted to the new position of associate director for advancement. She will focus on the Law School’s major gifts program. For the past eight years, Branner has worked in a variety of areas at the Law School, including event planning and alumni affairs. More recently, she has been responsible primarily for fund-raising and the Law Annual Fund. 

.........................................................

Lorriann Theresa Olan is the director of career planning and professional development. For the past eight years, Olan has clerked for the Hon. Rudolph Bumgardner III and the Hon. Elizabeth A. McClanahan on the Court of Appeals of Virginia. From 1994 until 1997, Olan was executive director of Project Horizon.

Sarah Nichols Hughes, who was assistant director of admissions, was named assistant director for advancement. She will focus on the Law School’s Annual Fund.

.........................................................

B r e t t Tw i t t y ’ 0 6 is the assistant director of admissions. He served as a recruiter for the Law Admissions Office in the fall of 2006. 6

Who Are The y, Really? The Back Stor y The first-year students hail from two foreign countries, 34 states and the District of Columbia, and more than 60 percent of the class spent some time outside the world of academia before beginning law school. They’ve worked on local, state and national political campaigns, Habitat for Humanity construction projects, Red Cross disaster-relief efforts, danceathons, walkathons and marathons for worthy causes. Several have already begun fine-tuning the skills that might land them a Kirgis Fellowship: they’ve been counselors in undergraduate residence halls, mentors to underclassmen and tutors to their peers. Five are Eagle Scouts. Our class includes the star of a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, two yoga instructors, several jazz musicians and radio DJs. Language skills include Italian, French, German, Hindi, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese. As always, students have worked for law firms and elected officials, for the federal government and public interest organizations, for real estate concerns and financial institutions. Several have experience at the front of a classroom, one teaching English in the Peace Corps. Others have had more unusual occupations: the class boasts a union pipefitter, an intelligence analyst for the Combat Terrorism Division of the United States Pacific Command, a meteorologist and an agronomist. They’ve also held more pedestrian positions. We number nannies, golf caddies, fishing guides and camp counselors among their ranks, as well as those who have labored at Chili’s, Wegman’s and Spencer Gifts. They’re athletic, too, having played lacrosse, field hockey, baseball, rugby, crew, swimming and cycling at either the club or varsity level. We have a Silver Life Master in bridge and at least one softball ringer whose presence will no doubt be felt at the Dean’s Cup tournament in April. If we Admissions folks were the betting kind, we’d lay odds that this class will yield the law school’s first female Sports Czar. —Andrea Hilton Howe ’85, Director of Admissions

As part of the Law School’s International Law Practicum, students will provide detailed analysis on legal issues for the Defense Support Unit of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC). “Reading about all the terrible things that occurred tears at us as human beings,” said Juliette Syn ’08. “Nearly two million people died from hunger, disease, overwork and execution.” But to have legitimacy in the eyes of the international community, a vigorous defense is essential, according to the project’s director, visiting professor Thomas H. “Speedy” Rice. “The representation of accused war criminals is never popular, but it is honorable and essential to the rule of law. Appropriately, honor is at the core of the W&L educational and social experience.” Syn, along with David James Knight ’08 and Jennifer Lavoie ’08, traveled to Cambodia to discuss ongoing work and future assignments. They observed a three-day training session for the defense attorneys covering the highly complex and unique legal issues that emerge during international criminal trials. For the remainder of the semester, along with a fourth student, they will work with defense attorneys in Cambodia via conference call, e-mail and Internet, researching emerging legal issues and developing advocacy materials. 7

Go to the consumer-driven archive section and movement. Jost’s scroll down to the analysis of the soludate of the show. tions proposed by consumer-driven advocates reveals serious shortcomings, even though consumerdriven health care has gained tremendous momentum as a health care panacea. Jost proposes to divide health care into three areas: catastrophic care, acute care and preventive care. Catastrophic care, for the highest cost procedures like organ transplants, and preventative care, which, if neglected, results in higher health expenditure later in life, should be covered completely by government plans. The insurance market would then compete with a third government plan to cover all other acute services. Since the highest cost procedures would not be a factor anymore, health insurance costs in general would be lower. “The basic responsibility for the cost of health care, and particularly high-cost health care, must be borne by the community as a whole, which means it must be financed in part through taxes,” Jost explained. “This is the way most other developed countries do it, and although every health care system has problems, most are doing better than we are.” “The Role of the Civil State in Marriage and Divorce,” Pepperdine University School of Law. “Law’s Inadequacy,” Barnes Symposium, University of South Carolina School of Law.

Q&A

W i t h D e a n Ro d Sm o l l a B y L o u i s e Uf f e l m a n Rodney A. Smolla became dean of the Washington and Lee School of Law on July 1. Smolla graduated from Yale University in 1975 and from the Duke University School of Law in 1978, where he was first in his class. He then served as a law clerk to Judge Charles Clark on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. After practicing law in Chicago at Mayer, Brown and Platt, he taught at several law schools before joining the William and Mary 10

the city and the suburbs. My dad was an air traffic controller, so we moved around a bit.

as a law clerk. I learned a lot about professionalism, civility and modesty. To this day, I value that wonderful educational experience. Then I went from being a law clerk to practicing at a large corporate firm in Chicago. I was a young litigator, and I loved being a litigator. I had the good fortune to not be assigned to any large, giant cases where I was lost in a team of 25 or 30. I was the utility player as an associate and was able to handle many relatively small cases. So I was able to learn a lot in a short period of time. But I was restless for the academic life, for the profession. I left relatively soon to start teaching. But even after becoming a professor, I remained active in practice, first for the firm that I had worked for. Down the road, I developed an expertise as an appellate lawyer and have done a lot of practice in that area throughout all the years I’ve been in the academic profession.

Q. What drew you to the legal profession?

..........................................

A. I got interested in law my

senior year at Yale. You could say I wandered into law school. No one in my family had gone to college before me, let alone law school. I had one cousin who was a priest. That was the farthest along anyone in my extended family had ever gone into higher education. I went to Yale originally to play football and gradually became a more serious student as I progressed through college. I became very passionate about American studies. For me that was a cross between American history and American literature. I toyed with going to graduate school in American studies, but this was a time in which teaching jobs at American universities were scarce, and graduate school, for that reason, didn’t seem as inviting. But I’d been fortunate at Yale to take a number of courses as an undergrad from law professors. I also had a number of friends who were law students. The combination of taking courses from law professors and knowing a number of law students who were very turned on by what they were experiencing was probably what drew me to law school. I went directly from undergraduate to law school. The practice of taking time off—which I think is a great thing to do—just wasn’t done as much back in those days. So I went to law school and was one of those rare students who completely enjoyed every minute of it. I shocked myself in doing well academically. Everyone else seemed so much smarter than me. I had so little conception of what it was to be a lawyer. I had no frame of reference in terms of my family life compared to many of the other students. I had never met a lawyer prior to college.

Q. How did you end up in the dean’s office at the University of Richmond?

...................................................................................

A. Another accident. I was as happy as could be as a profes-

sor, as a writer, as a practitioner, and really had never given much thought to academic leadership. The Richmond Law School had a change in leadership—the dean resigned—and a number of my colleagues encouraged me to apply. It was a huge turning point for me, because once I became a dean, it felt as if I had finally found what I was supposed to be doing as a professional. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it, how fulfilling it was. I’ve never looked back from that first day of starting down the road as an educational administrator.

Q. What attracted you to W&L? A. I had been fortunate for years to know many of the

...................................................................................

members of the faculty here. I had been invited to campus a number of times as guest lecturer. So on that personal sense, I had a real affection for W&L. It also has a tremendously favorable reputation nationally. It is a very special school. I had also become very connected to the Virginia legal community over the years, and so even though W&L is a national law school, the fact that it was located in Virginia, where I could still be a leader in the legal community that I’d become very attached to, was very appealing.

Q. What do you think makes W&L unique? A. I think that relatively small size, coupled with the tradi-

...................................................................................

tion of putting the student’s development at the center of

11


our mission, makes us a law school that is truly unique in the country. Like Frank Sinatra says in “New York, New York,” if I can make it there, I can make it anywhere. The ideal of a “W&L lawyer” is not just a slogan. I’ve experienced the confidence and strong sense of ethical integrity that our alumni feel. And I’ve witnessed how lawyers out in the profession treat the W&L brand name as something special. For a reputation like that to have meaning, it has to be something that has been nurtured for generations.

Q. What are your plans for the School? A. Our economy is global, and our political interactions are

...................................................................................

global. Anyone who practices law in any sense today needs to understand other legal systems, other legal and political cultures if he or she expects to be able to practice successfully and serve the public and/or his or her client. And an understanding of international transactions, international law, has now become part of the reading, writing and arithmetic of law school. It is as important as contracts, property and constitutional law in educating a modern lawyer. This means that any steps we can take to enrich our international focus will bring great dividends. The Transnational Law Institute, exchange programs with foreign law schools, opening up the law school to international LL.M. students are all examples of that at W&L. However, the Law School’s beautiful law building is no longer entirely adequate to meet our needs. It has had very attractive renovations, and we’re in the process of planning more of those to make more efficient use of our space and make those spaces more aesthetically pleasing. Yet, down the road we will inevitably need to expand the footprint of the building to accommodate our growing programs and expanding faculty. I think the student body size should always remain at its current cap. But adding programmatic activity, faculty members, practicing lawyers and other professional staff to help us carry on our mission is important. That will require more space. Right now, there’s not a single free office for any professional staff or faculty offices. We’ve got to do some reconfiguration in the short term, and, longer term, we’ve got to have some additional space.

job in training students to think like lawyers. We need to do a far better job of helping students develop into being lawyers. By the end of the second year, law students have learned the process of legal reasoning and most of the basic educational building blocks required for law practice. What most law students have not experienced in any serious way is the translation of that intellectual side of study into the exercise of professional judgment in the service of clients. It is not anything so mundane or simplistic as exchanging intellectual rigor for practical skills, however. The trick is to integrate the two as successful lawyers learn to do after years and years of experience. One year of apprenticeship won’t provide all of that experience, but it can give students road maps, frames of reference, exposure to experienced lawyers, ethical training and all the other complex experiences that are part of professional life. I think W&L is uniquely well suited to being a leader in helping legal education and the profession learn how to treat the task of educating lawyers as a joint venture. We have a small student body size, we have exceptionally loyal and engaged alumni and we have a tradition of student-centered focus and emphasis on ethics and honor. Given the global nature of modern practice and the ease of modern communication, we can provide these experiences and draw on partnerships

Q. You also have plans to change the third-year experience for W&L law students.

...................................................................................

A. The concept is to make the third year an apprentice-

ship—a year that bridges academic study and professional practice. It would involve a blend of simulated practice experiences, actual practice experiences and intensive mini-courses that emphasize problem solving and the development of professional judgment and skills. American law schools, and W&L in particular, do a superb 12

from practicing lawyers, government agencies, public interest groups and corporations throughout the country and the world.

Q. Service is an important tradition at W&L. How do you see it fitting into the education of lawyers?

...................................................................................

A

. I think that service is one of the three core missions of any university. Public service is particularly important at a professional school and should be encouraged and promoted constantly. Young lawyers need to be encouraged in the habits of pro bono legal service and civic participation. To me, teaching the values of pro bono service is as core as teaching the basic subjects of law.

Q. What books would you hope every incoming law student would have read?

...................................................................................

A. The

top book on my list would be To Kill a Mockingbird—it’s on my coffee table. Another book I think law students should read—and it happens to have been the subject for our alumni Law & Literature course—is All the King’s Men by Robert Penn Warren. Beyond that I’m eclectic. I highly recommend Dr. Seuss. He’s a natural wordsmith and isn’t afraid to make up a good word when it comes in handy. That can often work well for a lawyer.

Q. One of your books, Deliberate Intent, was made into a

television movie, and you worked with the screenwriters on the project. What was that experience like?

...................................................................................

A. The screenwriters took almost a year to write the

script. They constantly consulted with me, and I very much enjoyed that creative collaboration. It was fascinating to see the challenges presented in taking a complex legal dispute and reducing it to two hours of drama, while still trying to preserve the essential truth of the actual events. I was pleased with the outcome. It’s an interesting coincidence that I’m not the only W&L character in the story. Judge Mike Luttig ’76A, a close friend of President Ken Ruscio ’76A, wrote the opinion on the case.

Q. You have a very busy schedule.

How do you like to spend your down time?

...................................................................................

A. It’s totally focused on my family and kids. My wife,

Michele, and I have a blended family of five. Daughter Erin is a freshman at Duke; stepdaughter Sarah is finishing high school; stepson Miles is a junior in high school; daughter Corey is an eighth-grader; and our son Dylan Elliot is a first-grader. Q

Mark Crosby ’87 i n Wa s h i n g t o n Square, New York City. He has, as the song goes, “made it there” a s a l aw y e r , photographer and documentary producer.

I

In 1991, Mark Crosby ’87 was struggling with the grinding life of an associate in the New York office of Wildman Harrold. The Memphis native had worked in Manhattan since 1989, but he wasn’t positive this was the right career for him. So he decided to take a personality test, one that matches your answers to your ideal job. The results did not impress him. Apparently, he was supposed to be a movie producer.

16

“I remember thinking, ‘That is so out to lunch,’ ” he said, laughing at the thought. How could Crosby have guessed that the test would be spot-on, that 15 years later he would produce a critically acclaimed documentary and would be working on a feature film? Then again, he probably never imagined he’d eventually publish two books of photography, either. Perhaps if he had looked more closely, he would have seen the signs.

Crosby enjoyed music and the arts from a young age. Having a late birthday and being younger than most of his classmates, Crosby took the year between high school and college to attend the Interlochen Arts Academy in Traverse City, Mich. There, he pursued piano studies before enrolling at Furman, where he majored in philosophy and served as the pianist for Furman’s big band. While many of his Interlochen friends had gone on to pursue careers in the arts in New York City, he couldn’t quite bring himself to take that chance. Instead, he enrolled at W&L. “It probably came from not being bold enough to make a big leap,” he explained. “Feeling that I wouldn’t be able to cut it. But toward the end of law school I thought differently. Maybe I could try it for a year, and if nothing pans out, I’ll return to Memphis to practice law.” Making that choice set up the pattern that Crosby has followed to the present day: taking chances on what he loves doing. Sometimes, he created those opportunities. Other times, they fell into his lap. “I wasn’t a driven person; I was a drawn person,” he explained. “Everything was fun and interesting to me and not like work. If there’s any driver, it’s that I get an idea in my head that I believe is worth pursuing, and I will absolutely not let go.”

In 1988, while waiting for the results of their bar exam, Mark Crosby and classmate Daniel Fetterman took a five-month whirlwind tour through Nepal, Bhutan, Thailand, India, Indonesia and Australia. Crosby brought back a souvenir plate from Thailand with a photo of himself (right) and Fetterman on it.

It wasn’t long into his year that Crosby saw New York as the place for him, despite letting go of his desire to pursue piano along the way. So he sat for the New York bar in the summer of ’88. While waiting for the results, he and class-

mate Daniel Fetterman ’87, who had also taken the bar that summer following a clerkship with the Second Circuit, bought around-the-world tickets on Pan Am airlines. They headed east and traveled for five months in Nepal, Bhutan, Thailand, India, Indonesia and Australia, celebrating in India their mutual passing of the bar exam. An amateur photographer, Crosby took his camera along. When they returned in early 1989, Crosby accepted a job with the Chicago-based Wildman Harrold’s Manhattan office as a litigation associate, with the majority of his work involving intellectual property matters. His creative side lay dormant until 1996, when Wildman decided to close the New York office. Crosby saw an opportunity. “They gave me 18 months’ lead time,” he said. “So I had all the time in the world to figure out what my next move was going to be.” Crosby had been mulling a New “He is a talented York Christmas photography book pianist. Then he got idea at the time, “largely from having worked in Rockefeller Center for years involved in photography and seeing wall-to-wall crowds of tourand in a short period of ists there every December.” But he time became a knew if he accepted a job in another firm, he wouldn’t have the time or published photographer, freedom to see the book idea through. with multiple books He took a chance and opened a solo of photography, law practice in January 1997. “It was kind of a ready-made practice to step all while conducting into,” he said. “I just maintained those a law practice.” relationships [that Wildman had in — Dan Fetterman ’87 New York] and stayed in close contact with the Wildman firm in Chicago.” Crosby had plenty of work in his new practice, but he was also his own boss, so he could work just as hard at finding a publisher for his book concept. “I was absolutely certain I had a winning idea on my hands. Even though I went through two dozen rejection letters and two years of pursuing it, it never felt like a chore. I just knew that sooner or later someone would say yes.” Universe Publishing liked Crosby’s idea, but with an unexpected stipulation. Crosby pitched the book as Christmasthemed pictures of New York featuring many photographers, himself included. Universe, impressed with his work, wanted to feature only his photographs, which meant another season of shooting to cover the subject in full. In November 1999, Crosby’s patience paid off with the release of New York Christmas. A year later, Universe published his second book, New York: The Ultimate Photographic Journey. Fetterman marvels at the achievement. “He’s tremendous,” the Mobile, Ala., native said. “He is a talented pianist. Then he got involved in photography and in a short period of time became a published photographer, with multiple books of photography, all while conducting a law practice.”

17


If perseverance made Crosby a published photographer, providence helped fulfill his personality test prophecy. In 1999, a group in Memphis began planning a museum in honor of Stax Records, the preeminent soul music label of its time. From 1959 to 1975, Stax released hits like “Soul Man,” “Dock of the Bay” and “Respect Yourself.” Artists on the label included Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes and Booker T and the M.G.’s. Stax Records, aka Soulsville U.S.A., became a symbol of the civil rights movement. One of the principals of the museum was a childhood friend of Crosby’s. “He called me up,” recalled Crosby, “and said, ‘Hey man, you’re an artist, you’re from Memphis, a photographer, an I.P. lawyer, you love music. You’re hitting on all cylinders for us. We know you. We trust you. This is kind of up your alley.’ ” The Stax museum group quickly became Crosby’s biggest client. At first, Crosby identified and resolved all intellectual property issues, such as clearing the use of video and music clips, as well as items that different groups had the rights to. The early days of the museum effort were, in Crosby’s words, “just kind of a shoestring operation.” He began to take on more responsibility. His location in Manhattan gave him easy access to archival footage needed for the short videos chronicling the Stax story. Crosby eventually

jumped in as a writer and editor on these videos, claiming the role of executive producer of Soulsville, the 20-minute film on the history of Stax that now plays continuously throughout the day in the museum. One of the writer/directors Crosby worked with was a high school friend named Robert Gordon. “Mark made it a very powerful piece,” Gordon said of Soulsville. “He was very good at refining particular points and bringing a lot of emotion to them. That’s something you take for granted.” Both thought the Stax story was worthy of a full-scale documentary. “We put the word out to filmmakers that we were interested in looking at proposals, that we would fund a documentary,” Crosby said. “We had a number of people come in and essentially audition to make the documentary.” That was back in 2001. The documentary, “Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story,” aired this past August on PBS. What happened in the intervening six years says a lot about the business of making movies, as well as about Mark Crosby. Directors signed on (including Taylor Hackford, director of Ray and producer of the Muhammad Ali documentary When We Were Kings), then bowed out; funding was secured, then lost. Competing documentaries seemed to be gaining momentum, then faded away. There were times when it seemed like a lost cause.

The writers and producers of “Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story” are, from l. to r.: Morgan Neville, Robert Gordon and Mark Crosby ’87.

Crosby realized if the project was going to get done, he would have to do it himself. “I went to law school and was a lawyer for years and years and years, so it’s a very difficult thing to say, ’I’m going to be an artist.’ You don’t regard yourself that way. You begin to think about how other people will perceive you, like an interloper, a dilettante.” So Crosby and Gordon wrote a treatment—a detailed road map of the film—and began shopping it. Crosby had a friend with PBS’s “Great Performances” series who really liked it. So did others at PBS. They were willing to put up a quarter of the more than $1.1 million budget for a two-hour show. That was back in 2004. It took Gordon and Crosby two more years to find the rest of the funding. “That’s just kind of the nature of the business,” Gordon said. “To me, the scariest part was all the other people out there trying to make Stax documentaries. In addition to almost getting ours made and having it fall apart, we knew that was happening to other people as well. It was just a race.” When the funding finally came through, Crosby put his practice on hold while he and Gordon hit the ground running in December 2006, rushing to get the picture made for PBS in time to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Stax. They worked seven days a week until it was done. “It was a labor of love, because we toiled on it for six years with no promise of reward. That’s not easy to do,” Gordon said.

“You’re constantly getting close and then getting shot down. You’ve got to get back up and keep going.” Crosby agreed: “Probably what’s given me the most satisfaction is that it exists at all, that I helped to see it through.” Crosby’s determination to see his project through has spawned other opportunities. He has been offered a co-producer role in an upcoming HBO Films dramatized version of the Stax story, with Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker as an executive producer. Groups have also approached him about getting involved in three other documentary projects that he calls “preliminary at best, but interesting.” One is music related; one is about global warming; the other concerns the work of a Christian orphanage in Mozambique. Crosby’s path from lawyer to photographer to movie producer has had many twists and turns. But his success in turning those interests into such a varied and rich professional life “It was doesn’t surprise classmate and good friend Mike King ’87. “He is a a labor of love, Renaissance man. He can do lots of because we toiled different things and do them well,” on it for six years King said. “Frankly, I think there’s a lot more to come. Without being able with no promise to predict what it might be, I think of reward.” we’re going to be seeing more of him — Robert Gordon in productions, if not other things he hasn’t even thought of yet.” Q

Although a successful lawyer, Paul Ware ’86 also defines himself as an artist.

Returning to an Art-Full Life

A top merger and acquisitions attorney in Birmingham, Ala., Paul Ware ’86 had closed hundreds of deals with price tags as high as $14.3 billion. His law work was intense, successful and profitable, but his life lacked harmony—until he returned to making art and began living, as he says, art-fully.

P h o t o s b y O w e n S t a y n e r

“Art is about becoming, observing and receiving,” Ware said. “It is not a passive exercise at all. It has meant letting the work come and getting out of the way.” Ware has achieved respect in the Birmingham art world and beyond, showing his work in both the controversial public arena and in private, commercial galleries. Art is also bringing him closer to his family and his community. “My wife and children love my art,” he said. “We go to shows and exhibits together. Hannah (18) and Jameson (16) appreciate and praise the work, and they tell me when it’s bad or they don’t like it.” No one is more surprised than he is with his success. “Growing up, I didn’t know any artists, architects or designers,” he said. “I had no formal instruction.”

Ware took the long road to becoming an artist. After graduation, he joined Bradley, Arant, Rose & White, where he is now a partner, focusing on corporate securities, banking and financial services. Ware earned a special place at the firm as a keen listener and tireless producer who helped his clients find ways to expand their businesses. “Beginning in 1985, there was significant expansion of bank mergers and acquisitions, particularly in the Southeast, as regional banking compacts allowed interstate acquisitions for the first time,” Ware said. “I’d like to say I had a crystal ball and knew that all that activity would take place. I was interested in that area of the law and was pretty good at it.” Over the years, he got even better. He said, “My clients are forward-looking and ethical. I look for ways to construe regulations to permit otherwise previously prohibited or restricted activities.” He was so successful that he and his firm were consistently listed in the top 10 in the country, starting in the late ’90s and continuing to the present, in bank mergers and acquisitions based on the number and volume of transactions. “I knew we were being noticed and recognized for our practice and expertise,” he said. “I began to notice that other lawyers and firms had F a ll

2 0 0 7

begun to copy my agreements and my versions of, or revisions to, particular clauses and sections.” But that tremendous success in law was not enough. The long hours at the office left him feeling frozen and emotionally exiled from life. “I was kind of burning out—pressing on the gas and the brake at the same time,” Ware said. “I was working against the grain, making noise instead of music.”

Art has always been a joy to Ware, going back to his preschool days. About 10 years ago, in response to the stresses in his life, he began to putter around and gradually returned to the studio. He also started hanging around with artists in Birmingham. “There is art and then the rest of what you do. I guess it’s about harmony. I wasn’t doing any art to speak of or creating anything positive. I was just living hard and working hard,” he noted. Ware tapped into the left side of his brain and found relief in the hands-on aspect and intense focus art provides. He admits some of his early work was bad, but it gave him tremendous pleasure. Being receptive to his creative insights paid off in his professional life, as well. “I got better as a lawyer,” he acknowledged. Ware’s art is imbued with meaning, and he is always pleased when his viewers respond to it. His exhibition, supported by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation and called “Questions to the New South,” provided such an opportunity to share his views and deeply held personal and political beliefs. “I started making big portraits about six or eight months ago, mostly of national political figures,” Ware said. “Big paintings of big people. I felt anger at what these big, important people 21


were doing.” He summed up the images: “It’s reminiscent of totalitarianism—the cult of personality represented in stadium-card sized images of Mao or Stalin.” Anne Arrasmith, founder of Space One Eleven Gallery in Birmingham (which hosted the show), said, “Paul’s work on religion and politics and celebrities in the news is a wonderful tug of war between the holy and the profane. His wit is razor sharp.” Another aspect of his work reflects his quieter side and the inner world of his past. His Southern roots play a large part in his art, and he finds inspiration in the works of William Faulkner, Eudora Welty and Flannery O’Connor. “We Southerners are inbred and tied to the soil and to places and to our ancestors, or lack thereof. And we are drunks and crazies and all that stuff. There is an immediacy and richness and physicality that appeals to me, tactile and rich in feeling,” Ware said. “As a child, I always made things out of old wood scraps and found objects.” He returned to that era in his life for an upcoming group show. For the Bare Hands Gallery exhibition entitled Dia de los Muertes (Day of the Dead), he has assembled a special work. “Golgotha is a piece of copper cut from an old copper-bottomed skillet that is shaped like a skull. Animal teeth have been wired into the copper skull and a miniature painting of Christ are all assembled in an old drawer with gold leaf, and thin strips of broken glass—kind of a shadow box,” Ware said. He noted that Golgotha is where Christ was crucified. “Not the Mel Gibson version,”

Paul Ware met his wife, Joanna, in 1978, when they were both undergraduates at Sewanee. They were married the summer between his second and third year of law school.

Paul Ware not only paints, but also creates art from odds and ends he finds in the streets.

he said, “But sure ’nough dead. There is nothing pretty about crucifixion, and this piece is made up of things I've picked up— trash—shiny things and stuff that kids put in their pockets.” Ware describes this piece both as an offering or a prayer and as a metaphor for who we are, particularly the disabled people he volunteers with. “We're all damaged goods,” he said.

While reconnecting with art has freed him on some level, his law work is still integral to his life. “I can’t stop practicing law and become a full-time artist,” Ware said. “I could—but not with the folks who depend on me. But that’s OK. They support and love the art and me and what I do with it.” His friend Amasa Smith, a local artist, said, “Paul’s success at demonstrating an impossible juxtaposition—that of being a devoted family man and attorney with a premier law firm, while in his spare time delivering art—is nothing short of phenomenal.” Ware said, “My artist friends say it’s not fair—that I can be a good artist, but make a good living as a lawyer. My lawyer friends ask me when I’m going to quit practicing law and just paint full time. I’m lucky. I get to do both. Occasionally, I remind myself that Mark Twain sold insurance. I want to work harder at both,

and do better at both, and reach higher levels of success at both.” Realizing how beneficial art has been to a healthier and happier life, he is now sharing his knowledge with others through Studio by the Tracks, a local, nonprofit mentorship program that provides art instruction. “I realized that my passion was in the visual arts and that community. We give free art instruction to adults and children with mental illnesses, mostly autism. I also volunteer with VSA, Very Special Artists, and paint collaboratively with artists with disabilities. “I think for me this kind of [activity] captures the essence of my volunteerism. I feel connected with people when I am with them in a place of quiet respect and engagement. It’s not about doing for someone; it's about being with someone.” What are Paul’s expectations for his art in the next 10 years? “I’m just glad when my feet hit the ground each morning,” he said. “I have a desire and drive to be the best, but I am interested in something beyond that. I look at art as a progression toward spiritual growth and emotional maturity. Art is just part of who I am. It’s not something I do. It’s how I live.” Q An example of one of Paul Ware’s smaller religious icon paintings. Some are so small that they fit into the palm of your hand.

Larger Than Life In April 2006, at the Lyda Rose Gallery in Birmingham, Ware exhibited super-sized facial portraits of political figures. Dick Cheney’s huge face, at a scale of 4’ x 4’, was juxtaposed with other political leaders. “It’s a brilliant commentary on the machine-made politician,” wrote James R. Nelson, art critic for the Birmingham News, about Ware’s billboard-sized portraits. Ware explained, “The Cheney piece was part of several portraits that were all 4’x 4’ square head shots. There were a bunch of them—Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Richard Perle, Robert Novak—many of whom were involved in outF a ll

2 0 0 7

ing Valerie Plame, which was sort of the impetus of that. But there was humor along with the political stuff. Dick Cheney was paired with Richard ‘Dick’ Scrushy (the HealthSouth CEO who was indicted for huge financial crimes in Birmingham and ultimately acquitted) to form a Dick-typ.” Ware noted, “In an odd way, in the process of painting politicians, public figures who have created themselves into something larger than life, I think I shrink them and make them human.”

May It Please the Court

O ver the past year , several alumni have argued and won important cases . H ere are brief recaps .

Greg Wiercioch ’92 and his wife, Cristina, at the Supreme Court

In March, Greg Wiercioch ‘92 wrote, “My life has been turned upside down over the past two months. The Supreme Court decided to grant cert in one of my cases, after 14 years of writing them!” On April 18 he appeared before the justices on behalf of the defendant to argue Scott Panetti v. Quarterman. “The question presented was whether the Eighth Amendment prohibits the execution of a severely mentally ill, death row inmate who has a factual awareness of the reason he is being executed but does not have a rational understanding of the reason,” Wiercioch explained. “Scott suffers from schizophrenia and genuinely believes that Satan, in a conspiracy with the state of Texas, sought his execution to prevent him from preaching the Gospels. He was aware of the state’s purported reason for his execution—the murder of his parentsin-law—but he thinks that reason is merely a pretext to allow the Devil to carry out his plan.” Amy Dillard ’91 was present at the oral argument and said, “Greg was terrific.” She noted that this is a “fairly unfriendly court,” and correctly predicted that the decision would turn on Kennedy. He, indeed, wrote the majority opinion overturning Panetti’s death sentence. 26

Ross Goldstein ‘01 and Randy Hawkins ‘01 joined forces in court to win two cases challenging the constitutionality of the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act of 2005 (IMBRA) in both Georgia and Ohio. Goldstein, an attorney with Arnold & Porter in Washington, has provided pro bono services over the past four years to the nonprofit group Tahirih Justice Center. He was one of three lawyers who tried the famous mail-order bride case Nataliya Mikhaylovna Fox v. Encounters International. An important outcome of the case was the IMBRA, a law designed to provide greater protection from domestic abuse for foreign women who marry men through mail-order-bride agencies. President George W. Bush signed the bill into law January 2006. Soon after, the act was challenged as unconstitutional in two lawsuits brought by mail-order-bride companies. “The first of the lawsuits was in Georgia,” said Goldstein. “Tahirih wanted to get involved, which meant getting local Georgia counsel. I contacted my classmate Randy, an associate at Jones Day in Atlanta, who stepped up to the plate.” Goldstein credits Hawkins with organizing other Jones Day attorneys to work on the cause, including the second lawsuit in Ohio. “Not only did he serve as local counsel,” he said, “but Randy also played a key role in chasing down leads and potential witnesses. The U.S. Attorney essentially turned the case over to us to defend, recognizing on the record in open court that we had the resources and expertise on this issue that the government lacked.” On March 26, Judge Clarence Cooper, United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, rejected an international marriage broker’s claim that the IMBRA is unconstitutional. Earlier, the other lawsuit, brought in Ohio by a consortium of IMBs, made similar constitutional arguments and was dismissed in January 2007. .................................................... In March of 2006, Harry F. Bosen Jr. ’75 won a criminal jury trial, Commonwealth v. William Garland Havens Jr., in Bland County, Va., where his client was charged with having violently raped his then-5year-old niece almost 12 years before her report to the authorities. Bosen said, “Havens had confessed to the crime after three-anda-half hours of interrogation by the Virginia State police under highpressure circumstances and without sleep for a significant period of time. He had worked all night before the interrogation. The case dealt with false memory (either willfully made up or imagined) on the part of the purported victim, mental retardation of the defendant (borderline retarded, IQ of 79), false confession and a crime that I eventually proved at trial had never actually been committed at all.” The case appeared in the American Bar Association’s 2006 March/ April issue of Mental & Physical Disability Law Report and The Virginia Lawyers Weekly (March 20, 2006), among others. In June, Bosen traveled to Padua, Italy, to present the case at the 30th Congress of The International Academy of Law and Mental Health.

It’s a case that’s sure to make it into future textbooks, and Chris Manning ’97, an attorney with Manning & Sossamon, was in the middle of it all. In 2005, Roy L. Pearson Jr., an administrative law judge in D.C., filed a $50,000 lawsuit (Roy L. Pearson Jr. v . Soo Chung et al) in the District of Columbia Superior Court against Soo and Jin Chung, whose Washington dry‑cleaning business had allegedly lost his pair of trousers. The W&L network proved its strength, as the Chungs hired Manning based on the recommendation of their cousin Kathy Suh ’98, who heard about Manning from classmate Chris Yianilos ’97, who is legislative director to Sen. John Warner ’49A. Although the Chungs offered three different settlement amounts of $3,000, $4,600 and $12,000 and to return his pants. Pearson refused. He said the Chungs tried to pass off a pair of pants that were not his and that signs in the store— “Satisfaction Guaranteed,” “Same Day Service” and “All Work Done on Premises”—were misleading. In June 2007, the case finally came to trial, and when Pearson changed his claim to $67 million just before trial at the pretrial conference, the international media lampooned it mercilessly as an example of American legal excess. “This is quite possibly the most amazing example of frivolous and ridiculous litigation ever,” said Manning. On June 25, Judge Judith Bartnoff ruled resoundingly in favor of the Chungs with a full defense verdict and an award of court costs to the Chungs. In an attempt to persuade Pearson not to appeal (and because they knew he couldn’t pay), the Chungs withdrew their motion to claim reimbursement of attorney’s fees from him, as generous private donations had already covered their costs. Pearson went ahead with the appeal anyway. “The question is how do we balance the need to protect consumers against the need to protect the legal system from abuse,” said Manning. “I think it boils down to heavily penalizing those who abuse the legal system so others won’t try to do the same.” Meanwhile, the pants are hanging in the closet of Manning’s law office.

The prisoners “sleep on blankets on the floor, too tightly packed to reach the toilet—too packed, in fact, even to turn in their sleep. One inmate awakens the rest each night for mass turnovers. The most privileged inmates sleep on their backs, ringing the walls of the cell. Everyone else sleeps on his side.”

He told the Lynchburg News & Advance, “I’ve never had a burning desire to do a marathon, but I’ve always wanted to go to Iceland.” Previously, Sorenson, an attorney with Edmunds and Williams in Lynchburg, Va., had raced only a 5K in Richmond and the Charlottesville 10-miler. “It was not a typical race experience [but] it was really the best experience of my whole life,” he said. “It is hard to overstate how much fun it was. The race exceeded my expectations, and the country itself exceeded my expectations, which were pretty high. [Iceland] is the prettiest place I’ve ever seen.” Just before the race, Sorenson paused with his wife, Sarah (sister of Jack Craddock ’03A and daughter of Ted Craddock ’68A), at the start/finish line. 32

Honor Roll of Donors

The Moot Court Room lobby underwent renovations over the summer— new carpeting, new furniture and better lighting—and is now a more inviting space for faculty and students to mingle.

LETTER OF APPRECIATION FROM DEAN ROD SMOLLA am pleased to present this 2006-07 Honor Roll of Donors to you. On behalf of the faculty, students and staff at Washington and Lee University School of Law, thank you for your generosity during the past fiscal year. In 2006-07 the Law School raised $2.3 million from alumni, friends, parents, faculty and staff, a sum crucial to providing the margin of excellence that students, alumni and the legal profession have come to expect from W&L. Tuition only covers approximately 60 percent of a student's education, so your donations are vital to the operation of the Law School and to enhancing the value of a W&L Law degree. Each generation of students benefits from the generosity of the alumni who come before and of the parents and friends who believe that W&L School of Law makes a difference in the legal profession. Thank you for playing a part in continuing the Washington and Lee tradition of philanthropy. I appreciate your continued support of W&L School of Law.

2006-2007 LAW ANNUAL FUND The Law Annual Fund supports the general operating expenses of the Law School including library books, student organizations, Moot Court competitions, student journals and technology. Gifts to the Law Annual Fund are critical to retaining our standing as one of the best while adhering to those characteristics that make W&L School of Law unique—the Honor System, small class size, open-door policy, low student-faculty ratio, intensive writing program, the speaking tradition and sense of community. In 2006-07, the Law Annual Fund raised $804,857 from 1,831 donors.

LAW SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS There is a continual need for student financial aid to augment our current scholarship endowment. This need is virtually unlimited. In this fiscal year, the need presented by W&L law students totaled $15,854,103. We were able to provide $3,616,000 in merit and needbased aid to 249 students. For the

ADDED VALUE H. Marty Kang ’08 provided a few remarks about scholarships from a student's perspective at the Benefactors’ Dinner on April 19, 2007. Kang, who earned her B.A. at the University of Texas at Austin, noted, “While borrowing money for education is a fact of life for many students, when I saw [W&L’s] tuition figures, I was pretty daunted. So I knew I was truly fortunate when I received a scholarship from W&L. But I have to explain that the phrase ‘a scholarship that helps pay for my law school education’ encompasses so much more than the words that make up that sentence.”

She noted that her scholarship: THE BARRY CROSBY LAW SCHOLARSHIP

• “Gives me the chance to interact daily with bright colleagues and generous teachers and administrators.

S. Gates Shaw ’68A

• Enables me to learn from acknowledged experts in their fields how to advise and help others. • Provides an opportunity to sit and talk with legal scholars who have argued multiple times in front of the Supreme Court. • Lets me walk past the chair that Justice Powell sat in while judging historic cases. • Gives me the chance to watch the Fourth Circuit be in session in the same building where I eat lunch everyday. • Helped me meet lifelong friends and colleagues.” She continued, “Your scholarships, the scholarships that the benefactors in this room have provided, give students more than just a degree. Your scholarships help cultivate a passion for generosity, the desire to give back and the recognition that, as able attorneys, we need and can do more. “So, on behalf of all the students here who receive your generosity, I simply say, ‘Thank you for making it possible for us to attend Washington and Lee.’” Class of 2007L, the average debt load at graduation was $78,372.

INTERDISCIPLINARY GIFT Pete Hendricks ’66A, ’69 believes, “It’s important to have a sense of history to put what you are studying into context.” Following that philosophy, he decided to endow the Hendricks Lecture in Law and History. “I know W&L’s philosophy is to produce a well-rounded lawyer,” he explained, “and I hope this lecture series will serve as an interface between the two disciplines.” A history major himself, Hendricks endowed the Ollie Crenshaw Prize in History at the College several years ago in honor of his favorite professor, whom Hendricks described as “a wit, a scholar and an academician among academicians. He was also the consummate gentleman.” Scheduled to début on George Washington’s birthday in the Millhiser Moot Court Room, the inaugural Hendricks Law and History Lecture will feature William E. Nelson, the Judge Edward Weinfeld Professor of Law at New York University Law School. Hendricks lives in Atlanta with his wife, Kathryn, and has a private practice in the areas of land use zoning and government permitting.

SHEPHERD LOAN REPAYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM The Law School established the Shepherd Loan Repayment Assistance Program to assist law graduates who choose public interest careers. The Shepherd LRAP meets a portion of the recipients’ educational debt commitments so long as they work in public interest. This year we provided $47,500 to nine alumni. Sara A. Allenson ’06L Ryan R.

GRAYBEAL-GOWEN SCHOLARSHIP FUND

PARENTS, FRIENDS, FACULTY AND STAFF While the majority of our donors to the Law School are alumni, a good number are parents, friends, faculty or staff. The individuals listed below supported a variety of funds in the Law School during the 2006-07 fiscal year, providing W&L with additional resources to achieve our mission. Russell T.

Last summer, Tris and Jim Graybeal ’49A, ’51L, put the finishing touches on a gift to W&L, part of which went toward funding the Graybeal-Gowen Scholarship Fund. Over Homecoming Weekend, they had the chance to meet Aaron Cook ’10L, the inaugural recipient of their gift. The couple have strong ties to W&L. His brother, William, graduated from the College in 1942. Her late father, Howerton Gowen, was a member of the Class of 1930A. Graybeal said, “I am extremely grateful that I was able to receive my undergraduate and law degrees from Washington and Lee. Not only did this educational experience pave the way to a successful career, but it also provided me with an incredible network of alumni that has enriched my life. It is only fitting that I give back and provide another generation of students with the opportunity to achieve the success that I have enjoyed. “My wife, Tris, and I are proud to establish this scholarship in memory of her father, who had a deep and abiding love for Washington and Lee. To be able to meet Aaron, the recipient of our scholarship, was very important and added the personal touch, which means so much to us.” The Graybeals’ gift will also support the University’s GraybealGowen Library Acquisition Fund and the Virginia Poetry Center’s Graybeal-Gowen Prize.

Plan Your Charitable Giving Contributions to the University are investments in the education of generations to come. Although your contributions may help you realize financial and tax rewards, we hope that the primary motivation to give will come from your desire to be a partner in the Law School’s broad and earnest mission. For more information, please contact Elizabeth Outland Branner, associate director of Law School Advancement, at (540) 458-8191 or brannere@wlu.edu. Testamentary Gifts Some of the largest gifts made in support of Washington and Lee have been testamentary gifts. Bequests, retirement income plans and other estate gifts offer significant tax advantages and allow donors to make sizeable and important contributions to the future of the University. Fixed Term Gifts Gifts that pass assets to heirs Charitable lead trusts are powerful but complex tools in gift and estate tax planning. Donors in effect lend the assets to Washington and Lee for the term of the trust. At the end of the term, the trust distributes the assets to designated beneficiaries (usually heirs). Main benefits include reducing or eliminating transfer taxes (estate and/or gift taxes) imposed on the heirs, and the ability to make a gift to the University today without giving away your property. Gifts That Generate Income You can make a gift to W&L that returns income to you. Learn about annuity trusts, charitable remainder trusts and pooled income funds. Gifts of Property The University evaluates and accepts gifts of tangible personal property on an individual basis. Donors can realize an income tax deduction for these gifts. You can learn more about these types of gifts online at support.wlu.edu. Click on the “plan your charitable giving” link on the right-hand side of the Web page. The Karyn Gerschel Lamb Fnd.
