4 Feature Message from the Dean To Every Thing There Is A Season Alumni and Friends Continue to Energize the Law School I write in the heat of summer, with today s predicted temperature in the high 90s and back to school flyers in our Columbia newspapers. My hope is that you will read this on a crisp fall day, after a productive and restful summer (not necessarily in that order!), and that the Tigers already will be on the way to another successful football season and post-season. One of the wonderful aspects of teaching is the cycle of our educational system. Every August we begin again with another great class of first-year students. Secondyear students, who looked so tentative and uncertain just one year ago, return as wise veterans of the law school experience. Third-year students return for their final year of law school, usually having spent a summer at a law firm or with another legal employer. These returning students even sometimes admit, You know that time we spent in civil procedure studying pleading? I drafted some petitions and complaints this summer, and that s really important stuff! As you ll see from this issue of Transcript, this fall brings to the Law School several new and visiting faculty members. Rafael Gely joins us as the James E. Campbell Missouri Endowed Professor of Law, coming from the University of Cincinnati College of Law where he has built a national reputation in the area of labor law and labor arbitration. We also have three outstanding younger faculty visiting with us this year: Jennifer Reynolds, who served in law school on the Harvard Law Review and as a Harvard Negotiation Research Project fellow; Marc Roark, who comes to us from the University of Tulsa College of Law; and Erika Fadel, who has taught as an adjunct professor at the Law School for the last few years. During the past summer, students and faculty alike have had experiences different from those of the prior academic year. Our most recent graduates have spent June and July studying for the bar examination. The Class of 2008 will have to truly stretch to surpass the success of our students on the July 2007 Missouri Bar Examination. Over the last four summers first-time Mizzou takers of the Missouri Bar Examination have passed it at the following rates: 88.3 percent (2004); 89.5 percent (2005); 91.2 percent (2006); and 96.5 percent (2007). As I ve told our most recent graduates, they will have to pass the 2008 Missouri Bar Examination at a rate of about 99 percent to continue this wonderful trend. Our faculty, too, have spent the past summer in many and varied activities. Most faculty turned their attention to writing the law review articles and books that contribute to the development of the law and boost their reputations and that of the Law School across the nation and around the world. The Law School s reputation also was spread by the many faculty who talked at conferences this summer, while other faculty taught in our summer school programs here in Columbia and in South Africa. In this issue of Tr anscript you ll read about another way in which our faculty contribute to the ongoing analysis and development of the law through the legal blogging for which several of our faculty have become so well known. The stories that follow highlight a few of the many Law School activities last winter and spring. A slate of similarly exciting events already has been planned for the coming year, including a February 27 Missouri Law Review symposium on judicial selection and retention that will feature Justice Sandra Day O Connor. Your own activities as alumni and friends also energize us at the Law School. This issue s cover story focuses on those who serve as general counsel to major corporations and use their legal skills and business judgment to move those corporations forward. The leadership of these lawyers is representative of the varied ways in which outstanding Mizzou lawyers are setting a standard for the legal profession and many others both in Missouri and around the world. As we know from Ecclesiastes, To every thing there is a season. I wish you a season of learning and renewal just as exciting as that we experience each fall here at the University of Missouri School of Law. Very truly yours, 2 Transcript Fall 2008

7 Feature [ by Lindsey R. Laws, 2L ] The use of computers and technology is growing in society, and the legal world is no different. While law professors still utilize traditional print publications, many are now turning to web logs, commonly known as blogs. These online journals allow people to post anything caselaw, opinions, ideas or other commentary. Used in an academic setting, blogs can provide benefits that may not be offered by print publication, such as the ability to post daily regarding current events or the opportunity to discuss an idea informally before putting it to paper. Here you ll meet three faculty members who maintain or contribute to blogs that are related to their fields of expertise in law, and you ll learn how their involvement with their respective blogs affects both their scholarship and their teaching. Dennis D. Crouch Associate Professor of Law Professor Dennis D. Crouch is author and editor of Patently-O, a popular patent law blog. The Patently-O site is visited about 14,000 times per weekday, and the daily goes out to approximately 12,000 subscribers per weekday. Crouch was inspired to start Patently-O in April 2004, after reading a law blog. At the time, he was an associate at an intellectual property law firm in Chicago, where he kept the firm s attorneys abreast of appellate court decisions and changes in the law. This task made it easier for Crouch to begin Patently-O. Regarding the blog s effects, Crouch explains, I had some inkling that the site could have a positive marketing impact, but I really had no idea. It took about three months before the first client walked through the door. He had read my discussion of his case and wanted us to handle the appeal. Crouch s goal is at least four short articles per week, with each article taking about an hour to write and edit. Over the last four years, however, his actual posts have exceeded this goal about nine posts per week have been published. A large part of Patently- O is Crouch s discussion of patent appeals cases; since beginning his blog, Crouch has covered every precedential patent appeal. Aside from patent appeals, Crouch also blogs on many other topics, including in part academic studies ( A First Look at Who Files Provisional Patent Applications, June 3, 2008), book reviews (Patent Appeals: The Elements of Effective Advocacy in the Federal Circuit by Mark Davies, July 20, 2008) Fall 2008 Transcript 5

8 Feature LAWBLOGS continued from page 5 The blog is a free lifeline to continued learning. and design patents ( Design Patents: Controlling Pendency, Dec. 28, 2007). The time invested in Patently-O does not go unrewarded. Crouch, who genuinely enjoys interacting with patent law issues, credits his work on Patently- O with providing him with a broader understanding of the issues. Additionally, some of Crouch s blog articles have served as bases from which longer articles are produced. Due to the fact that Patently-O is now read by most U.S. patent attorneys, the blog also allows Crouch to receive feedback on his ideas. Crouch is not the only person to benefit from Patently-O. Several thousand patent attorneys and patent agents operate as solo practitioners. For these individuals, Crouch explains, The blog is a free lifeline to continued learning. Additionally, Crouch includes Patently-O in his courses. In his electronic commerce course, his students analyze his blog s terms of use and privacy policies from a contractual point of view, and also examine how the site has been affected by issues such as typosquatting (URL hijacking) and trademark infringement. In his patent law course, he has his students write sample posts, with the best being published. Crouch received his bachelor s degree from Princeton University, where he also earned a certificate in engineering management systems. He received his law degree from the University of Chicago, where he was a Microsoft, Merk & Pfizer scholar, as well as a member of the Olin program in law and economics. Prior to attending law school, he was a technical consultant for manufacturing firms, a research fellow at NASA s Glenn Research Center, a software developer at the Mayo Clinic s Department of Biomedical Imagining and a volunteer in the Peace Corps in Ghana, West Africa. Before joining the School of Law, he was a patent attorney at the Chicago law firm of McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff, LLP, and a visiting assistant professor at Boston University School of Law. Thomas A. Lambert Associate Dean for Faculty Research and Development Associate Professor of Law market.com Dean Thomas A. Lambert is a busy man. In addition to teaching courses in contracts, business organizations, antitrust law and environmental law and serving as the faculty advisor of the Missouri Environmental Law & Policy Review, he is also the associate dean for faculty research and development. His focus on academics, however, does not end once he leaves Hulston Hall. Lambert is a co-founder of and contributor to Truth on the Market, a group blog which provides commentary on law, business, economics and more. Truth on the Market was started in January 2006 with the goals of publicizing the authors ideas and promoting their scholarship. Lambert contributes about one post per week and spends approximately three hours on each post. He says part of the beauty of the blog is that he can include anything he wants. His posts certainly reflect this freedom, exploring issues that range from the importance of a free market with respect to products from cloned animals ( Free to Choose (and Market) Clone-Free, Jan. 31, 2008) to trying to explain the popularity of Britney Spears by examining network effects ( Is Britney the Qwerty Keyboard of Pop Culture?, Feb. 5, 2008). 6 Transcript Fall 2008

9 Feature Lambert finds that writing for Truth on the Market provides both enjoyment and benefits. Contributing to the blog helps him test ideas and allows feedback from readers. Additionally, the informal style of the blog facilitates scholarship by allowing him to put ideas to paper more easily than if he initially tried to write in an academic format. This benefit is demonstrated by the transformation of a post, FTC to Dr. Miles: I wish I knew how to quit you into a law review article. This post discusses Leegin Creative Leather Products, Inc. v. Psks, a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court which overruled Dr. Miles Medical Co. v. John D. Parks & Sons, Co., a long-standing precedent holding that minimum resale price maintenance agreements are per se illegal. This summer, Lambert wrote a law review article based on ideas explored in the blog. Lambert also enjoys that the blog allows him to collaborate with others outside MU. In addition to personal benefits, Lambert seeks to benefit others through Truth on the Market. Noting that this blog is more policy oriented and theoretical than others, Lambert explains that it is aimed at academics, and most of the readers are professors of law and economics. By this, he seeks to better the legal community by contributing to the world of ideas. The benefits of Truth on the Market go beyond just establishing and spreading ideas, however. Lambert incorporates the blog into his courses and views it as a supplement to his lessons. He has blogged about class discussions and assigned blog posts for students to read in preparation for class discussions. In this way, he seeks to benefit his students by allowing them to go deeper into ideas and providing them with a summary of policy issues. Lambert received his bachelor s degree at Wheaton College and his law degree from the University of Chicago. Before entering law school, he was an environmental policy analyst at the Center for the Study of American Business at Washington University in St. Louis. Before joining the School of Law faculty, he clerked for Judge Jerry E. Smith of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, then spent a year as the John M. Olin Fellow at Northwestern University Law School. He practiced antitrust litigation at the Chicago law firm of Sidley Austin LLP from 2000 to He has worked at the School of Law since LAWBLOGS The informal style of the blog facilitates scholarship by allowing him to put ideas to paper more easily. Professor Margaret E. McGuinness writes and teaches in the area of international law. She is also a co-founder of and contributor to Opinio Juris, a blog dedicated to reports, commentary and debate on current developments and scholarship in the fields of international law and politics. Opinio Juris was started in 2005 by McGuinness and two other law professors, Christopher J. Borgen of St. John s University School of Law and Julian Ku of Hofstra Law School. Collectively, the founders of Opinio Juris wanted to facilitate discussion about international law. For McGuinness herself, Opinio Juris was not only a way to benefit her teaching Margaret E. McGuinness and scholarship, but also to keep in contact with other international law scholars. Associate Professor of Law Fall 2008 Transcript 7

10 Feature LAWBLOGS continued from page 7 An unintended consequence of Opinio Juris is the degree to which the blog becomes a means to educate the general public beyond our students or other international law students. To further vigorous intellectual engagement in international law, the authors of Opinio Juris strive to provide information and to be thought provoking. McGuinness posts tend to explore events and respond to articles and books written by others, as well as discuss her own ideas and scholarship. Some of her more recent posts have discussed the prohibition upon U.S. personnel overseas engaging in partisan activities in conjunction with Barack Obama s visit to Germany ( Who Attended Obama s Speech in Berlin? (Hint: Not U.S. Diplomats!), July 24, 2008), voiced her agreement with journalist Nicholas Kristof s condemnation of the lack of collective response to Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe s actions ( Kristof: If Only Mugabe Were White, July 7, 2008), and discussed U.S. foreign aid in the area of fistula care ( How $300 Can Save Women s Lives, May 21, 2008). McGuinness enjoys writing for Opinio Juris and her participation with the blog has positively influenced her scholarship. Posting allows her to think out loud about ideas that later are developed into articles. An example of this is her article Medellin, Norm Portals and the Horizontal Integration of Human Rights, which began as a blog conversation and was ultimately published in the Notre Dame Law Review in Additionally, her participation in Opinio Juris allows her to be connected with the virtual community of international law scholars. McGuinness involvement in Opinio Juris benefits government lawyers, private lawyers and scholars who use the blog as a resource. It also helps her students, to whom she recommends reading the blog daily, and law students all over the world who are daily readers. Students everywhere can take advantage of the up-to-date discussions regarding events in international law. Further, the authors of Opinio Juris have hosted discussions of cases and have partnered with the Yale Journal of International Law and the Virginia Journal of International Law to encourage student editors to contribute content and comments to Opinio Juris. The benefits of Opinio Juris go beyond those involved in law and reach into the general public. As McGuiness explains, An unintended consequence of Opinio Juris is the degree to which the blog becomes a means to educate the general public beyond our students or other international law students. All readers of the blog are benefited by the blog s dynamic nature. Since its creation, six more co-bloggers have joined: Roger P. Alford (Pepperdine University School of Law), Kevin Jon Heller (University of Auckland Faculty of Law), Duncan B. Hollis (Temple University Beasley School of Law), Peter J. Spiro (Temple University Beasley School of Law), Kenneth Anderson (American University Washington College of Law), and Deborah Pearlstein (Princeton University Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs). Recently, the blog has moved to a new Web platform, received sponsorship from Oxford University and formed a book club with Oxford University Press. In 2007, the legal advisor to the State Department was a guest blogger. McGuinness joined the School of Law faculty in 2003 after a career as a corporate litigator in New York City. Prior to becoming an attorney, she was a foreign service officer for the U.S. Department of State. 8 Transcript Fall 2008

11 Feature by Judith A. Willis, 2L Energetic MU Lawyers Take the Corporate Ride These companies products and services range from insurance policies to baby bottles to windfarms. Their corporate counsels have two things in common a love of business and Mizzou. Some of those profiled in this article enjoy being able to follow business goals from inception to fruition, others appreciate the satisfaction of being able to prevent legal problems instead of fixing them. They all love the law, but they also relish the thrill of the deal. The corporate counsel often handles every type of legal issue that confronts a company, putting these lawyers in positions that require a wide spectrum of legal and business knowledge and an awareness of the forest of ever-changing national and international regulations. This is a challenge, but also keeps things interesting, and they are stimulated by the constant novelty this sort of position can entail. These energetic counsels also find time to contribute to their communities in a variety of ways, from pro bono work to educational programs. The following profiles manage to show only a fraction of what these individuals do for their companies, their communities and their families. Fall 2008 Transcript 9

12 Oh, The Thrill of It All! Prevention of problems and community outreach are vital parts of her work Alonzo herself manages one of Unigroup s special programs MoveRescue JAN ROBEY ALONZO, 82 SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, GENERAL COUNSEL AND COMPLIANCE OFFICER, UNIGROUP, INC., ST. LOUIS Jan Robey Alonzo, 82, works for Uni- Group, a worldwide transportation company with annual revenues of $2 billion. The trucks of United Van Lines and Mayflower have been familiar sights on American roads for decades and belong to the largest household goods moving companies in the world, just two of the subsidiaries of Unigroup, which also include an insurance company, a finance company and a container company. Alonzo is part of UniGroup s senior management team and is responsible for managing the company s law department. She supervises 20 lawyers and a nationwide network of outside attorneys. Together they handle all legal issues for the company, and keep the company abreast of possible legal risks and opportunities. Prevention of problems and community outreach are vital parts of the department s work. UniGroup s compliance program, Integrity First, was designed to keep legal compliance issues in the forefront of its business. Alonzo herself manages one of Unigroup s special programs, MoveRescue. This is a pro bono program to assist victims of crimes involving household goods moves, she says. Alonzo enjoys the variety of the legal issues with which she is involved corporate, transactional, litigation and legislative. She likes the fact that she is often involved in the development of company projects at an early stage and helps shape the final form of those projects. She also appreciates being able to work side by side with her business clients over long periods, getting to know them well and seeing long-term results of her work. Alonzo says that one of the best parts of her job is that she has repeatedly been able to go to Washington to work on legislation dealing with her industry. She has helped draft consumer protection legislation that was enacted into federal law, conferred with members of Congress and chosen the company s lobbyists. These are things she believes she would not have been able to do in private practice. Before law school, Alonzo taught U.S. history for a year in a high school in California, but even then she knew she wanted to be a lawyer, and began law school the following fall. Upon graduation she went to work for Thompson Coburn in St. Louis and remained there for 22 years. During her days there she represented UniGroup several times, and when its general counsel retired, the company was happy to hire Alonzo for the position, which she has held since While she was very happy in private practice, she feels that her in-house position has given her a much wider variety of issues to work on and learn about. As for her views on the School of Law, Alonzo says, The longer I have been in practice, the more I appreciate the education I received at the law school. Two areas of training in particular stand out in her mind: ethics and problem-solving. The ethical obligations we have as attorneys are what sets us apart from all other professions and puts us in a position to guide our clients in issues of business ethics and compliance, she explains. And the training in advocacy, analysis, dispute resolution and approaches to problem solving has been invaluable in facing the many challenges brought to her. No one doubts for a minute that Alonzo and her family appreciate Mizzou. Her husband Ray, to whom she has been married for 30 years, has three degrees from the university (BES 81, BSEd 81, MEd 82). Their oldest, son Joe, received two bachelor s degrees from The Alonzo family is on its way to sporting its ninth degree from Mizzou! MU, and was born while Alonzo was in law school. He is an attorney himself. Daughter Jen graduates from Mizzou s College of Education this December, and youngest son Ken entered Mizzou as a freshman in August. His arrival marks the beginning of the family s ninth degree from the University of Missouri! 10 Transcript Fall 2008

13 Energetic MU Lawyers Take the Corporate Ride Linda Legg, a dynamic force in the legal profession, is senior vice president, general counsel and secretary of AT&T s Advertising and Publishing division, headquartered in St. Louis. The division is the largest Yellow Pages and local search marketing company in the world in terms of revenue, publishing 1,250 AT&T directories in 22 states. The company provides a complete suite of print and online advertising search solutions for small and medium businesses through AT&T Real Yellow Pages and yellowpages.com. Legg s current position involves supervising about 30 attorneys, paralegals and support staff who provide a variety of legal and external affairs support services for the business, as well as managing all litigation and labor arbitrations and providing legal advice and counsel on a wide ranging number of issues, including employment, intellectual property, commercial issues, competition, legal compliance and public policy. In addition, Legg and her team play a key advisory role on the company s environmental issues and sustainability, which she considers essential to American business. Legg has been with AT&T for 33 years, coming to the company straight from law school. She has watched the company grow through many mergers and acquisitions from a regional telecommunications service provider Southwestern Bell Telephone Company to now being AT&T, one of the largest enterprises in the world. When she started, the company employed 35 lawyers in a five-state regional area; now AT&T has almost 500 lawyers located worldwide. Legg has great respect for the company, its ethics and corporate culture. She says that throughout her time there, she has felt valued and appreciated and has had a fascinating career with the opportunity to delve into many different areas of the law. I haven t had a chance to be burned out! she says. In particular, Legg values being able to help shape business plans and educate about the law. It s always better to identify and stop a potential problem before it happens than to later litigate a solution, she said. Although she is a proud graduate of the University of Kansas School of Law, Legg, a member of the School of Law s For All We Call Mizzou Campaign Steering Committee, is also a very devoted MU supporter. She and her late husband, Judge Lawrence G. Crahan, 77, shared ardent beliefs in the value of quality state education and in giving back to the educational systems that nurtured their careers. And she doesn t see this support as just generously donating money she expends a great deal of her personal time and energy promoting education. I believe that new law students must understand they are not just getting a degree they are entering a profession, Legg says. That brings with it requirements and standards for everything from capability to integrity. To foster this knowledge, she has appeared at 1L orientations, spoken on professionalism and has helped introduce professionalism programs into the curriculum. With Dean Dessem s help, she recently established the Judge Lawrence G. Crahan Judicial Fellowship, which gives MU law students the opportunity to clerk at the Missouri Court of Appeals and enables participants to experience many facets of the legal profession. Legg loves her career and works vigorously to strengthen the legal community and ensure that future colleagues are ready to meet the opportunities that await them. It s always better to identify and stop a potential problem before it happens than to later litigate a solution. Linda S.

14 Oh, The Thrill of It All! I wouldn t work for a company that didn t do the right thing. RANDA RAWLINS, 82 GENERAL COUNSEL, SHELTER INSURANCE COMPANIES, COLUMBIA Randa Rawlins, 82, is general counsel at Shelter Insurance Companies, headquartered in Columbia. A Missouri native, she attended Truman State University, where she later completed two terms of service on the board of trustees, and graduated with a degree in political science. After obtaining her law degree, she spent 19 years in private practice in Kansas City, largely as a trial attorney working in insurance defense and medical malpractice. Shelter Insurance Companies is comprised of 11 entities 10 insurance companies and a charitable foundation. The original company started in Missouri, and the group now covers 14 Midwestern states and Nevada. Its reinsurance division is worldwide. Rawlins has worked at Shelter for six years. She was acquainted with the former general counsel for the company, and when he decided to retire, he called to tell her the job would soon be open. Her extensive experience in major litigation and working in front of juries helped convince her employers she was the right fit for the position. Rawlins duties cover a very wide range of activity. She is the general supervisor of the law department, overseeing five attorneys, three staff members and a part-time law clerk. The department is like the companies own law firm taking care of as many legal issues inhouse as possible. Rawlins and her staff keep the companies apprised of regulatory and legislative rules and changes in relevant states, help write policies and work on issues of employment, contracts, banking and advertisement. They assist the companies in legal decisions of every stripe, keeping the other departments informed as to what they may and may not do under the law. Although she sometimes misses the rush of being in front of a jury, she appreciates the benefits of an in-house position. She has more control over her schedule, the hours are not as gruelling, the tasks are diverse and she is able to participate in the business as a whole, not just in its legal aspects. This involvement in the business side of the enterprise is one of Rawlins favorite things about her position. She is able to participate in both business and law, using her knowledge of the applicable law to help ensure the companies are in compliance and to apprise them of the nature and weight of the risks involved in various decisions. With her guidance, the business leaders are able to make decisions that are legally responsible and economically sound. Defending insurance companies can be a struggle juries and the public tend to have an automatic negative perception of them. Rawlins takes the philosophical view that it is an issue that exists, and that sometimes you overcome it, and sometimes you don t. She derives satisfaction from the knowledge that her employer provides a necessary beneficial service, and that with her help the companies can do so within the law. She believes in her employer, and says, I wouldn t work for a company that didn t do the right thing. Rawlins values the education she received in Missouri at both the undergraduate and professional levels and notes that getting a law degree from MU is especially beneficial to those considering working in Missouri and is also affordable. She is still in contact with many of her former classmates, and recently attended her 25-year law class reunion. 12 Transcript Fall 2008

15 Energetic MU Lawyers Take the Corporate Ride Robert E. Stemmons, 86, as he says, has travelled some way from home port. As general counsel of Citi Global Wealth Management EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), he must keep up with legal and financial systems in more than 60 countries. Home port is much closer to Mizzou, in his hometown of Mount Vernon, Mo., and at the law firm of Stemmons and Stemmons, which his grandfather, W. Robert Stemmons, started in It was at this law firm that Stemmons began his legal career after graduation, practicing with his father, Robert L. Stemmons, 51, and sister, Randee S. Stemmons, 83, for two years. He then moved to a large New York firm, doing corporate work mergers and acquisitions, banking, private equity and securities. The hours were grinding, but it was at this firm that he made the contacts that took him to London. Stemmons went there with another New York firm, handling banking, private equity and investment funds. When he wasn t setting up fund structures, he still stayed busy getting an MBA from London Business School and marrying his English girlfriend, Shirel, with whom he now has four children. He then went to work for Coutts & Company, a UK and European bank, as its general counsel. This bank is quintessentially English; it dates from 1670 and is known as the Queen s bank. Stemmons was custom-fitted with a frock coat while there! But he and the new American CEO successfully helped transform the bank into a modern investment house. He then worked for an American mutual fund house as its European general counsel before settling at Citi. Citi Global Wealth Management includes Citi Private Bank, Smith Barney and Quilter, a UK investment manager. He calls himself a manager of legal issues and risk, advising the senior management and boards of the legal entities. He also works on regulatory issues and corporate governance. While Stemmons is a member of several states bars, and is admitted to U.S. federal and bankruptcy courts, his current position does not involve appearing before courts; he advises the company on legal issues, engaging lawyers in various countries as the need arises. Being an advisor requires extensive knowledge of other countries judicial and banking systems and conditions whether certain contracts are enforceable there, what needs to be done to ensure that his company can operate there, whether there is stability in the country s judicial system and what political considerations exist. He has learned a great deal about these subjects, and teaches solicitors in his group how other countries banking systems work. Constant change keeps the work interesting. It is a highly transactional business and I enjoy rolling up my sleeves and doing the deals, he says. All this international financial adventure has not made Stemmons forget home. He recently returned to Mount Vernon for a visit and talked with his sister about her legal and community work in the area. He has fond memories of Mizzou, and credits the broad exposure to legal thinking he received at the school with helping him along his career path. He especially enjoyed evidence and trial practice, which he says sharpened his trial skills, making him a better corporate lawyer. The following class exercise he heard about from his sister, who was three years ahead of him, and participated in when the time came for him to have the same evidence course: Professor Ed Hunvald: Mr. Stemmons, give me a fact. Stemmons: You have on a tie. Hunvald: That s your opinion. Now, Mr. Stemmons, give me an opinion. Stemmons: You have on an ugly tie. Hunvald: Is that a fact? Hunvald was actually quite amused, realizing Stemmons had been anticipating the questions. Hearing such a story suggests that no matter how tough Mizzou law classes seem at the time, years later and far from home port, it will be the challenges, inspiration and ugly tie stories that are remembered most.

Its businesses include Energizer products, Schick Wilkinson Sword shaving products, and Playtex infant care, feminine care and sun care products, generating about $4 billion in annual Stratmann just keeps going and going and going! GAYLE GRISSUM STRATMANN, 87 VICE PRESIDENT AND GENERAL COUNSEL, ENERGIZER HOLDINGS, INC., ST. LOUIS sales. Stratmann manages the entire legal department and is ultimately responsible for all legal matters of the company. This position is a major shift from her early career. She taught special education for five years in the Columbia area. She then went to law school and worked for a St. Louis law firm practicing commercial litigation for three years before going to work for Energizer. When she started with the company, it manufactured only batteries and lighting products and she worked on only the U.S. legal issues. Energizer has grown a great deal in the last 10 years, acquiring (among others) Schick and Playtex. Stratmann s role in the company has grown as well; she took over as general counsel in She supervises about 50 people, including 20 attorneys. The legal matters they take care of involve the whole spectrum of issues, but she says the things she becomes most involved with are matters of major litigation, corporate governance and mergers and acquisitions. Stratmann is happy with her in-house position. One of her favorite aspects of the job is the opportunity to be intensely involved in the business side of the enterprise. She likes partnering with her business colleagues and learning about the company s new businesses and product lines, and finds the international aspects of the businesses especially interesting. I really can t think of any disadvantages, she says. She does recommend working at a good law firm for a while before attempting such a position, because of the background training involved and the fact that large companies often prefer to hire attorneys with such experience. Stratmann speaks very highly of her MU Law education: that the school prepared her very well for her present career, that the atmosphere was collegial and that she remains in contact with a good network of colleagues from her Mizzou days. For cases, her company sometimes uses outside attorneys who come from firms all over the country, and she compliments the Mizzou grads as being some of the best outside attorneys she works with. She has another reason for having fond memories of the school she met her husband, David A. Stratmann, 86, there! About that bunny Stratmann says that he s a very important figure in the company and gets involved in quite a few legal issues of his own. As for Gayle Stratmann we can t resist she just keeps going and going and going and going. 14 Transcript Fall 2008

17 Energetic MU Lawyers Take the Corporate Ride The answers are rarely black and white. If it were that easy, lawyers wouldn t be necessary. CAROLYN BENTON AIMAN, 92 SENIOR CORPORATE COUNSEL, SHELL OIL COMPANY, HOUSTON At Shell, it s not just about oil. Carolyn Benton Aiman, 92, has done work for Shell s hydrogen and biofuels businesses, and now she has moved into another renewable area and turned her attention to the wind. As the primary business lawyer for Shell Wind Energy, Aiman is supporting the company in its efforts to find a path that includes renewable energy sources. Shell s wind energy subsidiary concentrates on large-scale wind farm projects around the country. Aiman advises the business concerning the multiple issues surrounding the prospecting, development, construction, execution and operation of wind farms. There are lots of places with strong winds for development purposes, she says. The legal issues Aiman handles are varied and interesting and generally concern property access, infrastructure issues like access to the grid and construction matters, and environmental issues. It is not uncommon for the best wind to be in areas without major transmission lines or access to the grid, Aiman explains. Wind projects also deal with a wide variety of wildlife, viewshed and regulatory issues that vary from region to region. Among others, she is involved in projects under development in the Texas Panhandle and in West Virginia, which are expected to be operational before the end of the year. Aiman grew up in the Rio Grande Valley of deep South Texas and earned an undergraduate degree in mathematics before coming to Mizzou. Following law school, she clerked for a federal judge in Houston, worked in commercial litigation at a downtown St. Louis firm, and then worked for a labor, employment and commercial litigation boutique in Houston. While there, she handled the defense of class action suits brought by private parties as well as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and tried several cases related to employment, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title VII and related litigation. Ultimately, one of her in-house clients convinced her to join the in-house department, and through mergers and business changes, she ultimately landed in the Shell legal department, where she has been for almost seven years. She is very happy to have found a place at Shell where she can support the development and advancement of a business with her legal skills. The conjunction of business and the law is one of the things that particularly excites Aiman about her position. She enjoyed being a litigation attorney, but she says, This is better. She believes that being a former litigator helps her better advise her clients on the front end of the deal. I get to have a real, direct impact on bringing about the success of these projects, she explains. I am involved with the ongoing decisions and creation of practical solutions to the multitude of issues that come up. When asked if the work was easier in-house than trial work at a boutique, Aiman answered with an emphatic no. She explains that the work and deadlines can be every bit as intense and the pace is very fast. Still, Aiman enjoys the continuity of getting to know the business and clientele while making formative contributions to assist them in realizing their business goals. The professors at the School of Law consistently reminded Aiman and her classmates to do more than understand the black letter law. They gave me a great foundation for practicing law, she explains. Aiman recalls that her professors observed that it s not enough to know rules and regulations; one must understand the policy and issues that shape them and must know how to approach current matters with an understanding of those policies and issues. The answers are rarely black and white. If it were that easy, lawyers wouldn t be necessary, she says. Her professors taught with enthusiasm and sincerity and helped give her the tools to think about the profession analytically and creatively. So while Aiman does have to endure a lot of gentle teasing about wind (some of which she says is not printable in a polite publication), Aiman is sailing confidently into the future. Aiman is married to Kevin C. Aiman, 92, and they have two children. Fall 2008 Transcript 15

20 News F A C U L T Y N O T E Former Missouri Governor Tried for Outlaw s Murder by Jay Atkins, 08 Carl H. Esbeck has three forthcoming articles. The Supreme Court s recent treatment of taxpayer standing is the subject of What the Hein Decision Can Tell Us about the Roberts Court and the Establishment Clause, in 78 Mississippi Law Journal (fall 2008). The Application of RFRA to Override Employment Nondiscrimination Clauses Embedded in Federal Social Service Programs, in 9 Engage (summer 2008), concerns the use of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 to permit federal grantees who are faith-based charities to continue to employ those of likeminded faith. The focus of Protestant Dissent and the Virginia Disestablishment, , 7 Georgetown Journal of Law & Public Policy (winter 2009), is that the modern Supreme Court has elevated the Virginia experience as the relevant history giving meaning to the Establishment Clause. In late May, Esbeck attended the board of directors meeting of the Christian Legal Society in Washington, D.C. He is a director of the society and presented a report on the work of the Center for Law & Religious Freedom, the public interest law firm that litigates on behalf of the society. An article Esbeck first completed more than a decade ago was recently selected for republication in a classroom reader on church-state relations. The article, The Establishment Clause as a Structural Restraint on Governmental Power, in 84 Iowa Law Review 1 (1998), appears in Ravitch s Law and Religion, A Reader: Cases, Concepts, and Theory (Thomson West 2008). Photos courtesy of Scott Braudis Notorious outlaw Jesse James was killed by Robert Ford 126 years ago. On April 3, School of Law students brought to justice the man responsible, former Missouri governor Thomas Crittenden. The School of Law s Historical and Theatrical Trials Society (HATTS) presented a historical mock trial of Gov. Crittenden for his role in the murder of Jesse James. In 1881, Gov. Crittenden began strenuous efforts to rid Missouri of James gang of criminals and, as part of his efforts, allied with railroad companies to circulate a $5,000 reward poster for James apprehension dead or alive. Robert Ford infiltrated James gang and killed him on April 3, HATTS presented the trial of Gov. Crittenden for solicitation of murder through the reward poster and an alleged meeting with Ford. As part of the trial, MU law students and members of the Columbia community portrayed characters involved with the James murder, with Prof. Greg Scott portraying Gov. Crittenden. The case was tried by two teams comprised of one MU law student and one experienced attorney each. The State of Missouri was represented by Professor Frank Bowman and Carrie C. Moreland, 08, while the defense was represented by Christopher A. Slusher, 91, and Joshua M. Jones, 3L. Jay Atkins, 08, former president of HATTS, says that one of the most important elements of the event was its historical accuracy. All participants dressed in period costumes and acted in ways appropriate for the time period, which made the trial both realistic and very entertaining, he says. Prof. Steve Easton, HATTS faculty advisor, says that the trial was meant to appeal to more than just legal scholars. The way we put together this event, we involved not just the School of Law, but also the greater university and Columbia communities, he explains. We had local high school students and members of the state archives involved this year, so it was really a community event. The Crittenden jury ended up hung, seven to two in favor of conviction. HATTS is a group of students and faculty dedicated to exploring the intersection of law, history and theatre. Each year the society selects an event from history that represents a potential cause of action but was never tried in its own time. Members then research the event and stage a mock trial in which they apply modern law to the historical facts. 18 Transcript Fall 2008
