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. I just wanted to point out that Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, Senator Feinstein, former Senate majority leader Bill Frist, and former attorney general John Ashcroft are responsible for this rubbish. We need to keep a eye on these corrupt, arrogant, and incompetent fools.

  2. Well I guess our politicians have decided to give these idiot federal prosecutors unlimited power. Now if I guy bounces a fifty-dollar check, the U.S. attorney can intentionally wait for twenty-five years or so and have the check swabbed for DNA and file charges. These power hungry federal prosecutors now have unlimited power to mess with people. we can thank Wisconsin's Jim Sensenbrenner and Diane Feinstein, John Achcroft and Bill Frist for this one. Way to go, idiots.

  3. I wonder if the USSR had electronic voting machines that changed the ballot after it was cast? Oh well, at least we have a free media serving as vicious watchdog and exposing all of the rot in the system! (Insert rimshot)

  4. Jose, you are assuming those in power do not wish to be totalitarian. My experience has convinced me otherwise. Constitutionalists are nearly as rare as hens teeth among the powerbrokers "managing" us for The Glorious State. Oh, and your point is dead on, el correcta mundo. Keep the Founders’ (1791 & 1851) vision alive, my friend, even if most all others, and especially the ruling junta, chase only power and money (i.e. mammon)

  5. Hypocrisy in high places, absolute immunity handed out like Halloween treats (it is the stuff of which tyranny is made) and the belief that government agents are above the constitutions and cannot be held responsible for mere citizen is killing, perhaps has killed, The Republic. And yet those same power drunk statists just reel on down the hallway toward bureaucratic fascism.
