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. Major social engineering imposed by judicial order well in advance of democratic change, has been the story of the whole post ww2 period. Contraception, desegregation, abortion, gay marriage: all rammed down the throats of Americans who didn't vote to change existing laws on any such thing, by the unelected lifetime tenure Supreme court heirarchs. Maybe people came to accept those things once imposed upon them, but, that's accommodation not acceptance; and surely not democracy. So let's quit lying to the kids telling them this is a democracy. Some sort of oligarchy, but no democracy that's for sure, and it never was. A bourgeois republic from day one.

  2. JD Massur, yes, brings to mind a similar stand at a Texas Mission in 1836. Or Vladivostok in 1918. As you seemingly gloat, to the victors go the spoils ... let the looting begin, right?

  3. I always wondered why high fence deer hunting was frowned upon? I guess you need to keep the population steady. If you don't, no one can enjoy hunting! Thanks for the post! Fence

  4. Whether you support "gay marriage" or not is not the issue. The issue is whether the SCOTUS can extract from an unmentionable somewhere the notion that the Constitution forbids government "interference" in the "right" to marry. Just imagine time-traveling to Philadelphia in 1787. Ask James Madison if the document he and his fellows just wrote allowed him- or forbade government to "interfere" with- his "right" to marry George Washington? He would have immediately- and justly- summoned the Sergeant-at-Arms to throw your sorry self out into the street. Far from being a day of liberation, this is a day of capitulation by the Rule of Law to the Rule of What's Happening Now.

  5. With today's ruling, AG Zoeller's arguments in the cases of Obamacare and Same-sex Marriage can be relegated to the ash heap of history. 0-fer
