2 faculty at IU McKinneyawarded Grimes fellowships

Two professors at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law have been selected to receive 2013 Grimes Fellowships.

Eric Dannenmaier received the fellowship to work on his proposal, “Legal Frameworks for Great Lakes Governance.” This is the third time Dannenmaier has been awarded the fellowship, having received it in 2009 and 2010.

Yvonne Dutton also received the fellowship to work on her proposal, “Piracy and Ransoms.”

The John S. Grimes Faculty Grants and Fellowships were established by the estate of long-time McKinney professor John Grimes who taught property, and trusts and estates. The fellowships are awarded to faculty to develop and improve teaching and curriculum.

IU McKinney bolsters 3 legal concentration areas

The Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law has bolstered its focus on three specific areas of practice. The school is now offering a concentration in corporate and commercial law. In addition, certificates are offered in international and comparative law as well as for the concentration in intellectual property law.

The corporate and commercial law concentration focuses on giving students a basic grounding in a range of topics that are essential in business representations as well as helping them develop deeper expertise in one or more areas through advanced coursework, practical experience and independent research pursuits.

The certificate in intellectual property law is designed to enhance students’ education experiences and aid them in seeking employment in intellectual property and related areas. The certificate in international and comparative law will draw upon the expanded research and practice expertise of the faculty.•

  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.
