A newsletter for friends of the Indiana University School of Law—Bloomington • November/December 2006 (Vol. 4, No. 7)

Dear Friend,

It's the holiday season—a perfect time to reflect and give thanks. It's been a particularly good year for Indiana Law. We've added to our active and robust faculty with several great new hires; our student body continues to shine with the support and involvement of our loyal alumni; and we've expanded the breadth of our collaborations, both inside and outside the School.

The Law School in Winter Just a few days ago, we received a $160,000 grant from the Law School Admissions Council to administer "The Production, Content, and Consumption of Legal Scholarship: A Longitudinal Analysis." Professors William Henderson and Ken Dau-Schmidt will join efforts with faculty from the Northwestern University School of Law and the University of Illinois College of Law to construct a large-scale, relational database and related research that will serve as a valuable and novel resources for the legal academy.

In another exciting collaboration, the American Bar Foundation and Indiana University School of Law—Bloomington now co-sponsor the Law Firms Working Group. Pursuant to a special license with American Lawyer Media, law and social science researchers nationwide are submitting proposals via Henderson's Empirical Legal Studies Blog to gain access to a massive archive of cross-sectional and longitudinal data on law firms and practicing lawyers.

This past fiscal year, Indiana Law faculty experienced great success in research funding with more than $4.8 million awarded for cutting-edge projects. These endeavors continue a strong tradition of confronting issues that are integral to legal education, the legal profession, and legal scholarship.

Indiana Law is thankful for a supportive community of alumni and friends. I wish each and every one of you a happy and safe holiday season.

Film Features Dawn Johnsen Alongside Koh, Obama, Sunstein

Dawn Johnsen Professor Dawn Johnsen's research concerning the "Reagan-Meese Agenda" served as the impetus for a recent film titled Quiet Revolution. Produced by the Alliance for Justice, the film features Johnsen; Yale Law School's Bruce Ackerman, Drew S. Days III, Harold Koh, and Judith Resnik; Dahlia Lithwick, senior editor for Slate Magazine; U.S. Senator Barack Obama; and David Straus and Cass Sunstein of the University of Chicago School of Law. Bradley Whitford, star of NBC's The West Wing and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, narrates the film.

Currently being shown in law schools nationwide, the film claims to trace the growth of the ultra-conservative movement, shine a light on its strategies, and "expose how it envisions reshaping American law and life."

"Congress will be robbed of its power to enact federal legislation that it believes is necessary to protect the American people," Johnsen said of the movement.

Johnsen, who is co-chair of a project titled "The Constitution in the 21st Century," is currently writing a chapter of a book titled The Constitution in 2020, based on a conference held in April at Yale Law School.

Financial Aid Director Wins Top Staff Award

Jim Schutter Jim Schutter, Indiana Law associate director of financial aid, received this year's Bloomington Campus Staff Merit Award in the professional staff category. Schutter has worked with Indiana Law students for nearly five years. His goal, he said, is to ensure students receive the aid they need in a timely manner.

"I can think of no one more devoted to terrific student service than Jim," said Dean Lauren Robel. "Every year when the results of the Law School Survey of Student Engagement come back, we are off-the-charts in comparison to other schools in our students' satisfaction with their counseling on financial aid issues. Many students take the extra time to write comments about how far out of his way Jim goes to assure that they get their aid in a timely way, and to untangle the university's sometimes byzantine system when there are problems."

The former middle-school math teacher began his career in financial aid at IUPUI, where he worked for more than 21 years in various capacities, including director for Graduate Programs administering aid for the Schools of Law, Medicine, Dentistry and Social Work.

A ceremony honoring Schutter and other award-winners will take place at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 11, in the Frangipani Room at the Indiana Memorial Union.

Federalist Society Hosts Bob Barr Lecture

Bob Barr Indiana Law's Federalist Society for Law and Public Studies sponsored a lecture by Bob Barr, former U.S. Congressman and well-known conservative pundit. His talk "Are Privacy and Limited Government Casualties of the Global War on Terror?" drew an engaged crowd.

Professor Fred H. Cate, who introduced the timely lecture, said, "[Barr] is a visible and vocal example of a man who has remained true to his beliefs in government and out, even when they brought him conflict within his political party."

In addition to occupying the 21st Century Liberties Chair for Freedom and Privacy at the American Conservative Union, Barr is a columnist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a syndicated radio host, and a regular CNN contributor among other impressive affiliations.

The Federalist Society promotes awareness of judicial restraint and separation of powers and to further the application of these principles through debates, forums and guest speakers. The society is one of Indiana University School of Law—Bloomington's more than 30 student groups.

Hurricane Katrina Winter Break Relief Trip

The Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) is organizing a winter break service trip to Biloxi, Miss., to provide legal relief and physical labor to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

In partnership with the Hands On Network, 25 Indiana Law students will support the hurricane relief effort by clearing and rebuilding damaged buildings at two locations in Biloxi. They will also conduct legal research and perform outreach, data collection, and other tasks to assist the Mississippi Center for Justice (MCJ), a non-profit dedicated to advancing racial and economic justice. The MCJ focuses on creating long-term, systemic change.

Students will benefit from hands-on legal experience, the opportunity to network with legal professionals and law students from around the country, and the personal satisfaction in helping Hurricane Katrina victims. On prior trips, students contacted homeowners regarding foreclosures, surveyed rental properties, observed court proceedings, conducted historical research, and provided homeowners with information about how to file Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) claims.

Donations from alumni, faculty, and staff are needed to offset the costs for transportation and food, and to supplement a donation to the host church, Our Lady of Fatima in Biloxi. To donate, please contact Katie Molter, PILF president, at kmccaule@indiana.edu, or Jen Nagourney, Student Hurricane Network liaison, at jnagourn@indiana.edu.

Alumna Runs Chicago Marathon to Honor Mother's Fight with Cancer

As Amanda Feltman, JD'05, reached mile 20 of the Chicago Marathon on Oct. 22, family and friends stood along the roadside cheering wildly.

Feltman ran her first-ever 26-mile trek as one of the Saucony 26—an annual selection of 26 participants who represent each full mile of the marathon. The 20-mile marker was dedicated to her mother, Carol, a survivor of brain cancer. Feltman's goal was to complete the 26.2-mile marathon and raise $10,000 for the American Cancer Society (ACS) in honor of her mother's heroic battle.

Amanda Felton "It was very emotional reaching that 20-mile point," Feltman said. "The crowds and the experience were just overwhelming. I didn't feel the pain."

For Feltman, mile 20 has been a lifelong lesson. "My mother is my hero, and I can never thank her enough for what she has taught me and sacrificed for me," she said.

When Feltman was only 6 years old, her mother was diagnosed with the devastating illness. And though the single mother resisted a risky surgery, Carol's doctor told her she would die without it. "Dr. Cerullo picked up a picture of me that was on my mom's night stand and told her not to teach me to quit—not to give up on me," Feltman said. Her mother had the life-saving surgery. And 20 years later, she is still fighting. "I know that she did it for me because she wanted to show me that she would fight to the end. She has done that."

Endurance must be in Feltman's blood. Emulating the action and determination learned from her mother's battle, she ran the full marathon in four hours, two minutes, and 22 seconds. But this is no finish line. She plans to continue running marathons to raise funds for the ACS, which offered an invaluable support network during her mother's surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and recovery.

The alumna, who currently lives in Bloomington and clerks for Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, continues to exceed her $10,000 goal.

More than $1,000 of the funds she's raised so far were donated by Indiana Law students and faculty. Robyn Carr, JD'05, a classmate Feltman hadn't seen since graduation, spread the word among her friends in Texas. Carr's and others' efforts delivered donations from people who had never met Feltman or her mother.

"It was truly inspiring watching everyone pull together—all in honor of my mom and fighting cancer," Feltman said. "It just goes to show the impact that each of us can have."

The NYJTL is the largest youth tennis organization in the country and the largest affiliate of the United States Tennis Association's National Junior Tennis League.

Gary Davis Davis was selected after a national search conducted by Korn Ferry. He joins the NYJTL after having served as the Port Authority's Manager of Airport Operations at Newark Liberty International Airport. He has been with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey since 1994, working in numerous facets of aviation.

Joel Pett: Editorial Cartooning and the Law

A captivated crowd watched Pulitzer Prize-winner Joel Pett sketch Ronald Reagan, both Bushes, Condoleeza Rice, and other political figureheads in the Law School's Moot Court Room. Using a stack of stark white paper and a sharpie marker, the IU alumnus and editorial cartoonist presented "Activist Judgments: One Editorial Cartoonist and the Law."

Dean Lauren Robel's introduction of the speaker included heartfelt thanks. During her recent trip to Liberia, Robel presented Liberia's president (the first female president in Africa) with a signed original cartoon by Pett. In the cartoon, a little girl in the United States tells her mother, "Maybe one day we'll catch up with Africa."

Audience members asked about the laws and cases that permit cartoonists to editorialize on today's political climate. Pett noted such cases as Falwell v. Flynt and the fighting that was incited after cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad were released last spring.

As head of the Cartoonist Rights Network, a group that aids cartoonists who have run into trouble, he knows firsthand the value of American freedoms and legal precedence. Referring to a cartoon he drew of President Reagan about the issue of overpopulation, Pett said that "there are not too many countries in the world where you can draw your leaders in any form—even as a bodily fluid."

Pett was a freelancer at the former Bloomington Herald-Telephone more than 20 years ago. He was later hired as the Lexington Herald Leader's first full-time cartoonist. Since then, his work has frequently been reprinted in magazines and newspapers around the country, casting many powerful figures in an entertaining—and often critical—light. He earned the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning, and he was a finalist for the award in both 1989 and 1998.

Indiana Pro Bono Commission Honors Three Indiana Law Alumni

Sherry Clarke, JD'81, was one of two Hoosiers to receive the Randall T. Shepard Award for commitment and contribution to the Indiana pro bono movement.

Clarke served as the plan administrator for the District 2 Pro Bono Legal Services Committee from its inception in 2001 until her recent retirement in April. During her tenure as plan administrator, Clarke worked with committee members of the Indiana State Bar Association and other plan administrators of the 14 pro bono districts throughout Indiana to organize the first Talk to a Lawyer program.

She also worked closely with the Pro Bono Committee of the St. Joseph County Bar Association to develop and implement its Modest Means program. The program matches clients of modest, yet non-poverty, means with an attorney at a reduced rate of compensation serving a growing population whose needs until that time had not been addressed.

The Indiana Bar Foundation also presented Indiana Law alumni Lance Wonderlin, JD'89, and Matthew Gutwein, JD'88, with the Pro Bono Publico Award. The IBF recognizes the extraordinary contributions that are made to ensure that legal services are available to persons who otherwise could not afford them. The award also enhances public awareness of the substantial voluntary services rendered annually by Indiana lawyers.

Wonderlin was recognized for donating his time to the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic on family law pro bono cases as well as volunteering as the intake attorney at the NCLC's Noblesville location. Gutwein, of the Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County in Indianapolis, was honored for his dedication and service to law-related education and particularly his involvement in expanding and promoting the We The People program.

Colts Honor Faculty Member, Alumna for Community Service

James A. Tanford Professor Alex Tanford and his wife, Philippa Guthrie, JD'91, were selected as recipients of the 2006 Colts Community Quarterback Award, presented by the Colts and sponsored by Bose McKinney & Evans. The award, which was presented during a luncheon on Nov. 14, recognized 25 Colts season ticket holders who have demonstrated outstanding service to their community through volunteerism and support of community service initiatives.

The couple co-founded the Beatty Foundation in honor of Guthrie's mother, who was dedicated to community service. The Beatty Foundation raises and distributes money to families in the Bloomington area who are in need of temporary economic assistance due to the disability of a primary wage-earner. The Foundation offers assistance with health care, utility, rent, and child-related expenses and has distributed more than $100,000 in assistance over the last four years.

Tanford also serves as a Cub Scout den leader and volunteer youth sports coach.
