Lights! Camera! IU Maurer team takes action for film project

Faculty and students from Indiana University Maurer School of Law are helping to create a little silver screen magic.

The IU Maurer team is lending its legal expertise to a crowdfunding project launched by IU film students who are trying to raise capital to cover expenses for 13 short films.

The filmmakers, with support from their professor, veteran actor Robby Benson, are soliciting financial backers at the crowdfunding site Indiegogo. So far, they are more than a quarter of the way toward their goal of raising $10,000.

The films will be premiered at the IU Cinema in April. Benson hopes his students’ work will also have an opportunity to grace the screens at the Sundance, Slamdance and Heartland film festivals.

No word if anyone from IU Maurer will make a cameo appearance.

Diversity work at IU McKinney recognized by ISBA committee

Carlton Waterhouse, professor of law at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, and the IU McKinney School of Law Chapter of Black Law Students Association were honored for their work during the 2013 annual meeting of the Indiana State Bar Association.

Waterhouse and the student organization were named the recipients of the Rabb Emison Award for their efforts to increase diversity in the legal profession. In addition, the Chapter of BLSA was lauded for its work with the ISBA Diversity Committee to host the inaugural Diversity and Alumni Reception held in February.

Waterhouse was also recognized for his work in organizing the partnership between the law school and Shortridge Magnet School for Law and Public Policy in Indianapolis. The ISBA’s Diversity Committee was unanimous in deciding to name Waterhouse as the recipient.•

  1. "...not those committed in the heat of an argument." If I ever see a man physically abusing a woman or a child and I'm close enough to intercede I will not ask him why he is abusing her/him. I will give him a split second to cease his attack and put his hands in the air while I call the police. If he continues, I will still call the police but to report, "Man down with a gunshot wound,"instead.

  2. And so the therapeutic state is weaonized. How soon until those with ideologies opposing the elite are disarmed in the name of mental health? If it can start anywhere it can start in the hoosiers' slavishly politically correct capital city.

  3. So this firebrand GOP Gov was set free by a "unanimous Supreme Court" , a court which is divided, even bitterly, on every culture war issue. WHAT A RESOUNDING SLAP in the Virginia Court's face! How bad must it have been. And all the journalists, lap dogs of the status quo they are, can do is howl that others cannot be railroaded like McDonald now??? Cannot reflect upon the ruining of Winston and Julia's life and love? (Oh I forget, the fiction at this Ministry of Truth is that courts can never err, and when they do, and do greatly, as here, why then it must be ignored, since it does not compute.)

  4. My daughter is a addict and my grandson was taken by DCS and while in hospital for overdose my daughter was told to sign papers from DCS giving up her parental rights of my grandson to the biological father's mom and step-dad. These people are not the best to care for him and I was never called or even given the chance to take him, but my daughter had given me guardianship but we never went to court to finalize the papers. Please I have lost my daughter and I dont want to lose my grandson as well. I hope and look forward to speaking with you God Bless and Thank You for all of your help

  5. To Bob- Goooooood, I'm glad you feel that way! He's alive and happy and thriving and out and I'm his woman and we live in West Palm Beach Florida, where his parents have a sprawling estate on an exclusive golf course......scum bag
