Valparaiso Law renames Professionalism Series to honor late dean Louis Bartelt

Valparaiso University Law School is recognizing longtime faculty member and former dean Louis F. Bartelt Jr. by renaming the school’s Professionalism Series in his honor.

Bartelt, who died in January 2007, built a distinguished career at Valparaiso Law.

He graduated from Valparaiso Law in 1947 and, after a year in private practice in Milwaukee, he returned to join the faculty and taught for 38 years until he retired in 1986. He served as dean of the law school from 1965 to 1969. He served as acting dean from 1964 to 1965 and again from 1971 to 1972.

A scholar of the law, Bartelt was a Sterling Fellow at Yale Law School in 1954 and was named a Rockefeller Research Fellow at the University of Wisconsin Law School from 1956 to 1960.

The Professionalism Series was established at the law school in 2012 with the intent of teaching the values and ideals of the legal profession to the students and equipping them with the skills and attitudes they will need after graduation.

Designed like a continuing legal education program, all students are required to attend one program in the Professionalism Series each semester they are enrolled. The topics cover a range of subjects from legal ethics, professional judgment and the importance of civility to wellness, diversity and networking.

  1. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  2. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  3. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.

  4. The sad thing is that no fish were thrown overboard The "greenhorn" who had never fished before those 5 days was interrogated for over 4 hours by 5 officers until his statement was illicited, "I don't want to go to prison....." The truth is that these fish were measured frozen off shore and thawed on shore. The FWC (state) officer did not know fish shrink, so the only reason that these fish could be bigger was a swap. There is no difference between a 19 1/2 fish or 19 3/4 fish, short fish is short fish, the ticket was written. In addition the FWC officer testified at trial, he does not measure fish in accordance with federal law. There was a document prepared by the FWC expert that said yes, fish shrink and if these had been measured correctly they averaged over 20 inches (offshore frozen). This was a smoke and mirror prosecution.

  5. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)
