Moot court endowment

On Aug. 22, Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis announced the creation of the Timothy J. Kennedy Memorial Moot Court Fund. The endowment fund is being created with a $50,000 gift to the school from Montross Miller Muller Mendelson & Kennedy, of which Kennedy was a founding partner. With the endowment, the law school plans to host the first National Professional Responsibility Moot Court Competition, March 9-10, 2012.

Founding partners Mike Miller, John Muller, and Tilden Mendelson attended the check presentation in honor of their former partner.

“For over 20 years, Tim chaired one of the Indianapolis Bar Association’s grievance committees, quietly working to preserve the integrity of the legal profession. We could not think of a better way to honor Tim than with a gift which will support a national moot court competition involving cutting edge professional responsibility concerns,” Mendelson said.

Notre Dame conference

Notre Dame Law School has planned a one-day conference in honor of John M. Finnis, the school’s Biolchini Family Professor of Law. Finnis is being recognized for his five-volume collection of essays published by Oxford University Press last year, as well as the Oxford-published second edition of Finnis’ “Natural Law and Natural Rights.”

Among those scheduled to speak at the Sept. 9 event are the Hon. Neil Gorsuch of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, Dean Timothy Endicott of Oxford University, and Robert P. George, McCormick professor of jurisprudence at Princeton University.

George said that Oxford choosing to publish Finnis’ essays demonstrates the high regard others have for his work. “Needless to say, Finnis has won this esteem by the force of his intellect and the power of his arguments, and not by validating or reinforcing prevailing academic orthodoxies,” George said. “Indeed, at every level Finnis’ work challenges and undermines such orthodoxies.”

  2. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.

  3. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  4. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  5. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.
