A newsletter for friends of the Indiana University School of Law—Bloomington • November/December 2007 (Vol. 5, No. 6)

Dear Friend,

Lauren Robel in China

Greetings from Asia. I have been in both China and Korea for the past week working through exchange agreements with partner schools and participating in a joint seminar between IU and Zhejiang University in Hangzhou.

During my visit to Shanghai, I was able to speak to Dong-Kuan Ju, a 1949 Indiana Law graduate. Mr. Ju's remarkable story illustrates IU's global reach. After graduating from the prestigious Soochow University, Mr. Ju came to Indiana to get a graduate degree. During the time he was away from China, the Communists took control of the government, and upon his return, Mr. Ju found himself unable to practice law. He worked for many years as a laborer and carpenter until, in 1980, he was re-called to the law to begin the process of opening China to joint ventures with Western companies. During the next 20 years, he worked on some of the largest joint-venture and private-direct investment activities in China. Now retired, Mr. Ju remembers Bloomington fondly, and recalls that he was one of 10 Soochow graduates who came to Indiana in the same year.

Students from China now account for more than 700 of the graduate students on the Bloomington campus and an increasing number of law students. It is important that our JD students have opportunities to connect with their professional counterparts around the world and that they are able to study in countries with such strong and growing economic relationships with the United States. While we can marvel at the extent of current globalization, Dong-Kuan Ju's story shows that Indiana's ties to the world — and to China — have deep and durable roots.

On a sad note, the Law School remembers and salutes Joseph B. Board Jr., JD'58, who passed away last month. Joe was a loyal alumnus and friend of the School, a member of the Academy of Law Alumni Fellows, and a wonderful scholar and teacher. We will miss him.

All my best,

Lauren Robel, JD'83
Dean and Val Nolan Professor of Law

Robel, Hoffmann Travel to Finalize Korea and China Partnerships

Last month, Dean Lauren Robel, JD'83, traveled to China and Korea, and Acting Executive Associate Dean Joseph Hoffmann to Korea, to finalize new partnership agreements with top-ranked law schools in those two countries.

In China, Dean Robel — together with new IU President Michael McRobbie and IU Vice President for International Affairs Patrick O'Meara — signed an agreement with the School of Law at Zhejiang University, one of China's top three institutions of higher learning. The Zhejiang agreement will foster exchanges of students and visiting scholars, and will also promote joint research activities and possible cooperative degree programs.

In Korea, Robel and Hoffmann executed agreements with four law schools ranked among the top 10 in that country: Yonsei University, Sungkyunkwan University, Ewha Woman's University, and Chung-Ang University. Over the past several years, Korea has emerged as the country with the largest number of Indiana Law LLM and SJD students and alumni. In 2009, legal education in Korea will change from an undergraduate to a graduate-school model, and these new agreements will ensure a continued high level of cooperation and exchange between Indiana Law and four of the leading law schools in Korea.

Director of Admissions Retires After 40 Years of Service

Pat Clark Alumni, friends, and family recently gathered to honor Director of Admissions Pat Clark for her 40 years of service to Indiana University and the School of Law. She will retire at the end of 2007.

Hundreds of well-wishers attended the Nov. 30 ceremony, sent e-mails, or left voicemail messages congratulating Clark. Current and former students around the world reminisced about their experiences of being accepted into law school. All were touched by the grace and personal care Clark provided.

Said Maryann Mukete of Cameroon, West Africa, "...what a wonderful feeling you must have knowing that your service has contributed to the well-being of a great school and to the lives of so many young people who have gone on to make significant contributions to our world! Thank you for your service to my school, to me, and to so many other students who have passed through its doors."

Clark, who arrived to Indiana Law in 1967 as a "naive" 18-year-old, discovered her first assignment would be working for legendary professor Jerome Hall. "A rather intimidating experience, to say the least," she said.

Without a designated position for Dean of Admissions, the responsibility fell to a faculty chair. "I had the good fortune to be mentored by and to have learned from the best," she said. Professors Bill Popkin, Harry Pratter, and Douglass Boshkoff also filled the role during Clark's tenure.

"I'll always remember fondly the conversations Harry and I had about admissions, but also about other events, particularly a lot of basketball," Clark said.

Later, when Indiana Law officially created the position for Dean of Admissions, Clark was supervised by Karen Cutright, Frank Motley, Kevin Robling, and current dean, Dennis Long, JD'98. According to Long, those positions were merely "titular," as Clark was the real power behind the Office of Admissions.

Her duties and responsibilities quickly changed from performing clerical tasks to include counseling students, recruiting, reading and evaluating applications, and creating new programs and strategies for the Admissions Office. "I cannot say enough about those experiences and friendships and what they have meant to me and how they have allowed me to grow over the years," she said.

Clark said she has "literally grown up and grown with the Law School — through marriage, the birth of our son, the marriage of our son, and birth of our granddaughter." She is now looking forward to spending time with family and friends, vacationing in Florida, and "getting caught up on those things I have neglected over the last four decades."

Indiana Court of Appeals Visits for Oral Argument

A full audience heard arguments in the case of Shafer and Freeman Lakes Environmental Conservation Corp. v. Justin Stichnoth and Corraine Stichnoth, held Oct. 29 in the Moot Court Room. Judges Edward W. Najam Jr.; Paul D. Mathias, JD'79; and Cale J. Bradford heard the case on appeal from White Circuit Court.

A tort case, the two sides argued issues pertaining to a suit brought after an accident resulting in injuries to Justin Stichnoth when he dove off a dock into Lake Shafer and his his head on a dredge pipe. The Court was asked to determine whether the trial court erred in denying appellant's motion for summary judgment, and whether the trial court abused its discretion in denying appellant's motion to bifurcate the trial on issues of liability and damages, and in permitting certain expert testimony, among other issues. On Nov. 29, the Court handed down its decision in the case.

The Indiana Court of Appeals hears oral agument at venues across the state to enable Hoosiers to learn about the judicial branch. Students were able to ask questions about the judicial process following the submission of the case.

Gregg, JD'73, Honored by Justice Department

Larry Gregg, JD'73, was honored Oct. 2 at the Justice Department's 55th Annual Awards Ceremony at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. Gregg was presented with the Mary C. Lawton Lifetime Service Award. The award is given only in exceptional circumstances to those individuals who have significantly contributed to the success of the Department by a record of outstanding actions and career accomplishments.

As a civil chief in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia and as an attorney in the Department's Civil and Criminal Division, Gregg played a significant role in the development of immunities and defenses that protect federal officials charged with law enforcement and national security responsibilities. As an affirmative civil enforcement prosecutor, Gregg secured substantial recoveries for the U.S. where federal grants were obtained through fraud and misrepresentation.

"Larry Gregg is an extraordinary public servant who has dedicated his career to the service of our nation and the pursuit of justice," U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Chuck Rosenberg said. "He is a brilliant lawyer, a model of integrity, and richly deserves this recognition."

Cate Listed as Top Computer Privacy Expert

Professor Fred Cate Computerworld magazine has named Fred H. Cate, an Indiana Law professor and director of the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research at IU, one of the "best privacy advisers in 2007."

Cate is the only academic on the magazine's 25-person list of top individual privacy experts in the United States and Europe. He is No. 9 in a group dominated by private-practice attorneys and technology privacy consultants.

Jay Cline, president of Minnesota Privacy Consultants and the author of the article, contacted more than 400 corporate privacy leaders, asking whom they would call "if your company loses a laptop, rolls out a new Web site or globalizes its HR information system." The survey names New York-based Hunton & Williams as the top computer-security law firm and Ernst & Young as the best audit and consulting firm on the topic. Lisa Sotto of Hunton & Williams is No. 1 on the list of individual privacy experts.

The article quotes Cate on how the privacy market changed in 2007. "Disclosures of secret government surveillance and data-mining programs sharpened attention this year on the volume and types of personal information that businesses are collecting and sharing with the government," he told Cline.

Cate specializes in information privacy and security law issues, testifying frequently before Congress and regularly speaking to industry, professional and government groups. He is a member of Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing Academic Advisory Board, the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Technical and Privacy Dimensions of Information for Terrorism Prevention and Other National Goals, and the Research Steering Committee of the Center for Identity Management and Information Protection. He also serves as reporter for the American Law Institute's project on Principles of the Law on Government Access to and Use of Personal Digital Information.

Johnsen Testifies in Mukasey Attorney General Hearing

Professor Dawn Johnsen Recent confirmation hearings for Michael B. Mukasey, nominee for Attorney General of the United States, included testimony from Indiana Law's Professor Dawn Johnsen.

Johnsen, a well-known expert in constitutional law and former acting assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel under President Bill Clinton, was among a panel of experts and former U.S. Department of Justice officials who testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary on Oct. 18.

Her testimony explored the ways in which the Department of Justice's legal advice to the president has been dangerously compromised, particularly on issues of national security and counterterrorism — as well as what must be done to correct this deviation from tradition and best practices.

Johnsen appended to her testimony a statement of "Principles to Guide the Office of Legal Counsel," which she co-authored with 19 former OLC lawyers, in an effort to avoid future errors along the lines of the infamous and now-discredited 2002 OLC Torture Memo, in which OLC advised President Bush that he had the constitutional authority to order torture in violation of federal statute.

Her testimony also drew upon an article in which in which she explored the appropriate role of presidential lawyers, published last month in the U.C.L.A. Law Review and entitled Faithfully Executing the Laws: Internal Legal Constraints on Executive Power.

Recently, the professor took part in a National Press Club event that featured former Department of Justice Officials addressing "Principles to Guide the Department of Justice under the Next Attorney General." The American Constitution Society, for which Johnsen is the Indiana Law chapter adviser and a national board member, released video of the event. View the video.

Harvard, Virginia Publish Ochoa's Research

Professor Christiana Ochoa Forums such as the Harvard International Law Journal, the Virginia Journal of International Law, and the highly trafficked blog Opinio Juris are featuring Professor Christiana Ochoa's important investigations of customary international law and the Odious Debt Doctrine.

"From Odious Debt to Odious Finance: Avoiding the Externalities of a Functional Odious Debt Doctrine" argues that democratic successors to despotic governments should not be bound by the contractual and commercial obligations of prior despotic governments if the benefits of those obligations were not passed on to the people.

The Harvard Journal of International Law selected the article for an issue forthcoming in early 2008. "'Odious Finance' is a contribution to the broader developing literature and doctrines that connect economic activity to the human rights implications of that activity," Ochoa said.

Published this fall by the Virginia Journal of International Law, The Individual and Customary International Law Formation" argues that international law will be more internally coherent and outwardly legitimate if individuals are formally recognized in the process by which customary international law is formed.

"There are disjunctures imbedded in customary international law doctrine." she said. "For example, it is problematic that states, who are often human rights violators, are the only type of entity currently recognized as empowered to form customary international law."Further exploration of this work takes place at Indiana Law this spring in a conference, The Individual and Customary International Law Formation, to be held April 3–5, 2008 in Bloomington.

Ochoa's research also appeared recently — with several responses from academic peers — on the popular Opinio Juris law blog and on the IntLawGrrls blog.

In Memoriam: Stanley Jablonski, JD'72

Merrillville lawyer Stanley Jablonski, JD'72, died Oct. 11. He was 59.

Jablonski served as a deputy Lake County prosecutor, a public defender, and a private attorney during a 35-year legal career.

"As an attorney, he was unyielding and could make my job difficult in court," said former judge Richard Maroc, who now is a private lawyer in Munster.

County Sheriff Rogelio "Roy" Dominguez said Jablonski could display a vinegar sarcasm against anyone the lawyer opposed.

Jablonski defended a number of police officers in disputes with administrators, including a 1992 case in which he released the testimony of top-ranking Merrillville police officers using racial slurs when referring to blacks, causing a shake-up in the department.

In another case, he successfully represented county police officers who former sheriff John Buncich wished to discipline. Years later, Buncich successfully employed Jablonski to reinstate the former sheriff on the corrections merit board against opposition by the current sheriff.

Other clients of Jablonski's private law practice form a "who's who" of Lake County, Ind., politics. They included Lake Station mayoral candidate Keith Soderquist; former East Chicago Republican Chairman Robert Cantrell; and Robert Velligan, a contractor caught up in the East Chicago sidewalks-for-votes scandal.
