IU McKinney students receive puppy love before exams

Students at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law will enjoy a little stress relief courtesy of a couple of visitors with four paws, tails and wet noses.

The Indianapolis Healing Paw Chapter of Love on a Leash is scheduled to bring dogs of all shapes and sizes to the IU McKinney Law School Dec. 5. Students will be able to interact with the pooches at the Ruth Lilly Law Library.

“We provide a moment of joy and connection that only a pet can provide,” said Angela Huser, Love on a Leash volunteer. “A therapy pet’s primary function is to brighten someone’s day.”

A senior editor at the popular online magazine Slate spoke recently to students at Notre Dame Law School about the female justices who have sat on the Supreme Court of the United States.

Dahlia Lithwick, senior editor, presented “How Have Women Changed the U.S. Supreme Court?” Nov. 21. The program was co-sponsored by the American Constitution Society and the Women’s Legal Forum.

At Slate, Lithwick writes the “Supreme Court Dispatches” and “Jurisprudence” columns. She has twice been awarded an Online Journalism Award for her legal commentary and was the first online journalist invited to be on the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. She has also written for the New York Times, The New Yorker and Harper’s and appeared on CNN, ABC and The Colbert Report.

With a J.D. from Stanford, Lithwick is currently working on a book about the four female justices of the United States Supreme Court.

Indiana University Bloomington Provost and Executive Vice President Lauren Robel traveled to South Korea after the Thanksgiving holiday to meet with alumni and partner institutions.

Robel, former dean of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law, led a delegation that visited universities, businesses and cultural institutions and looked for opportunities to create new academic, research and professional partnerships.

IU has a number of collaboration agreements with universities in South Korea involving many academic units, including Maurer Law School. The agreements are part of IU Bloomington’s global engagement initiative, which seeks to strengthen and capitalize on the school’s presence around the world.•

  1. My husband financed a car through Wells Fargo In dec 2007 and in Jan 2012 they took him to court to garnish his wages through a company called autovest llc . Do u think the statue of limitations apply from the day last payment was received or from what should have been the completion of the loan

  2. Andrew, you are a whistleblower against an ideologically corrupt system that is also an old boys network ... Including old gals .... You are a huge threat to them. Thieves, liars, miscreants they understand, identify with, coddle. But whistleblowers must go to the stake. Burn well my friend, burn brightly, tyger.

  3. VSB dismissed the reciprocal discipline based on what Indiana did to me. Here we have an attorney actually breaking ethical rules, dishonest behavior, and only getting a reprimand. I advocated that this supreme court stop discriminating against me and others based on disability, and I am SUSPENDED 180 days. Time to take out the checkbook and stop the arrogant cheating to hurt me and retaliate against my good faith efforts to stop the discrimination of this Court. www.andrewstraw.org www.andrewstraw.net

  4. http://www.andrewstraw.org http://www.andrewstraw.net If another state believes by "Clear and convincing evidence" standard that Indiana's discipline was not valid and dismissed it, it is time for Curtis Hill to advise his clients to get out the checkbook. Discrimination time is over.

  5. Congrats Andrew, your street cred just shot up. As for me ... I am now an administrative law judge in Kansas, commissioned by the Governor to enforce due process rights against overreaching government agents. That after being banished for life from the Indiana bar for attempting to do the same as a mere whistleblowing bar applicant. The myth of one lowly peasant with the constitution does not play well in the Hoosier state. As for what our experiences have in common, I have good reason to believe that the same ADA Coordinator who took you out was working my file since 2007, when the former chief justice hired the same, likely to "take out the politically incorrect trash" like me. My own dealings with that powerful bureaucrat and some rather astounding actions .. actions that would make most state courts blush ... actions blessed in full by the Ind.S.Ct ... here: https://www.scribd.com/doc/299040839/2016Petitionforcert-to-SCOTUS
