Second-year law student Jackson Ely is spending his summer interning for Douglas County District Court Judge Sally Pokorny. Ely is earning academic credit for his internship through the school’s Judicial Field Placement Program.1960s.Matchbox.Lesney.36,OPEL,Vauxhall Diplomat BPW.Mint in box.OriginalBmw M535i Dark 1978 bluee White 1 43 Model NEO SCALE MODELS
At his internship, Ely researches issues, writes legal memos and observes courtroom proceedings. He also gets a behind-the-scenes look at the decision making process used by a district court judge.
“It is really rewarding to see the results of my work being used by the judge to make decisions and have a real impact in the justice system,” Ely said.
He enjoys the quick pace of working in a courtroom. Through his position, Ely has become efficient at legal research and writing.
“New issues crop up every day,” Ely said. “The courthouse is a busy place, and there is always something happening that requires research into an issue.”
Ely has developed legal skills through his internship that he intends to put into practice during the rest of his time in law school. He said the best advice he received was to strive to be unbiased in the courtroom.
“Judge Pokorny told me that the best thing to do is to stay objective, not get emotionally invested in a case and focus on the facts,” he said.
Ely enjoys doing legal work that influences the lives of community members.
“In most law school classes, the issues are hypothetical and everything takes place in a made up, controlled environment,” he said. “Here, the parties are real, the issues are real, and the results are real.”Hot Wheels Legends Vintage Record Holders 4 Car Set LE Challenger, Watson, NEW1 43 First Response Police Indiana State Police

Ely’s hometown is Flower Mound, Texas, which is just north of Dallas. He earned an undergraduate degree in history from the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri.
When applying to law schools, Ely did not let the Kansas/Missouri border war sway his decision making.
“KU Law is a well-established and respected law school, and the cost of tuition was very reasonable compared to other schools,” Ely said.
Ely said that after he visited KU Law prospectively, he was left with a positive impression about the school’s faculty members because they were, “really engaged and invested in the students compared to other schools I visited.”
“I felt that KU Law genuinely cared about its students,” Ely said. “KING AND COUNTRY SP016 SP16 REICH CHANCELLERY ANNEX 1 30 SCALE saw that I was a prospective student and took the time to talk with me for over an hour about the culture of the law school and the opportunities it offered. After I visited the school and spoke with Professor Hecker, I knew it was the law school for me.”
At KU Law, Ely serves as vice president of the Business and Tax Law Society and secretary of the newly formed Midwest Innocence Project Student Organization. He is also a member of the Sports Law Society.
Ely hopes to use the experience and knowledge he gained from his internship and extracurricular involvement to launch his legal career.

On my first day of law school, Verem Militär Armee 1 43 - Jeep Auto Verbindungasked our small section why we chose to come to law school. My answer without hesitation was, “I want to make a lot of money.” Being a lawyer meant making good money to me.
My first semester of law school, I received an email about a pro bono opportunity helping at the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Renewal Clinic. Being an immigrant to the U.S. myself, this opportunity instantly caught my attention. Before I could make up my mind, my body volunteered. There weren’t many who came to get help at the clinic, but I was fascinated by the willingness of the law school to help the people in need. After participating in the DACA renewal clinic, I was motivated to utilize my skills as a law student to give back to the community.
During my two years at the law school, I have participated in a variety of law-school-sponsored pro bono opportunities: DACA Renewal Clinic, Clean Slate Expungement Clinic, Guardianship Assistance Program, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program and judging mock trials. I interviewed individuals who need to remove charges from their criminal record, but don’t have the funds to do so. I drafted a petition for a mother in need of a guardianship of her son with multiple health conditions. I assisted international students file their tax returns and helped them understand the reason for filing taxes. Through these opportunities, I gained rewarding professional experience that can’t be taught.
The satisfaction that I got from knowing that I made a difference in the community was equivalent to the satisfaction that I got from money. The smiles on people’s faces as they thank you from the bottom of their heart was more than rewarding.
It wasn’t until the first semester in law school when I realized the importance of pro bono service. Uncompensated legal work seemed to be an oxymoron when I started law school. KU Law has taught me the responsibility that I have as a law student and a future lawyer, to serve and to give back to the community. Participating in a variety of law-school-sponsored pro bono opportunities not only helped me gain hands-on legal experience, but it redefined what being a lawyer meant to me.
I chose to come to law school to make good money, while serving and giving back to the community.

As a lesbian woman, LGBT+ activism and advocacy have been a part of Delaney Hiegert’s life since she came out.
Hiegert, a second-year KU Law student, is spending her summer as a law clerk at the Norev Porsche 917K 1971 1 18 van Lennep Larrousse 6h Watkins Glen (MCC) (NCLR) in San Francisco.
“There’s really no words for how excited I was when I received the call that I got the job,” Hiegert said. “I never imagined I’d be working in San Francisco alongside attorneys responsible for the first state bill to protect LGBT+ youth from conversion therapy or who are representing some of the plaintiffs in the Trans Military Ban cases.”
Hiegert is one of six law clerks at the NCLR this summer. Each of the law clerks answer phone calls on the NCLR’s national helpline, which takes calls from LGBT+ community members or individuals with LGBT+ children who are seeking legal information and resources.
“It is such an amazing feeling to know you’ve helped someone handle a problem that was causing them genuine distress,” she said. “Though I’m not able to provide every caller with good news or even with a solid answer, I’m still able to listen to them and be empathetic to their situation. That is something I’m proud to do each day and is what makes this job truly rewarding.”
At her internship, she also assists staff attorneys with legal research, memos, and letters of support for policy initiatives that will benefit the LGBT+ community and other minority communities.
“Though it’s invigorating working at an organization that is actively fighting for LGBT+ equality, it’s also harrowing to see the breadth of challenges our community is still facing,” Hiegert said.
Hiegert applied for the internship after speaking with KU Law Associate Professor Kyle Velte, 1937 Dodge Airflow - Budweiser Matchbox YVT02-MJOHN DAY MODELS 001 MARCH 761- VITTORIO BRAMBILLA - F1 orange 1 43 - GOOD IN BOXwho served as a law clerk at the NCLR in 1997.
“Talking with Professor Velte is what initially got me interested in the job. Once I researched the position after our conversation, I realized this was basically my dream job,” Hiegert said.
Through her internship at the NCLR, Hiegert has solidified her intentions to pursue a career that incorporates LGBT+ advocacy through both litigation and policy.
Hiegert is originally from Topeka. She earned an undergraduate degree from Newman University in Wichita, where she was actively involved with the university’s LGBT+ and ally organization, Kaleidoscope.
She elected to continue her education at KU Law because she felt most at home while visiting Green Hall.
“I loved that the school was set up in a way that made the faculty easily accessible. The environment felt friendly, and the students were all welcoming,” Hiegert said. “I am able to stay close to family while getting my degree, which is a nice bonus.”
Hiegert is the president of KU Law’s chapter of OUTLaws & Allies, BIANTE 1 18 FORD BF FALCON COULTHARD PATRIZI 2009 BATHURST TEAM MCGRATHErtl 1 18 scale Diecast - 7726 '39 Ford High Tech with lights and soundsa student group devoted to making KU Law a safe and welcoming place for LGBT+ students, staff, faculty and their allies. As president of the organization this year, Hiegert plans to incorporate programming for, “larger collaborative law school events that could help to foster an even more inclusive and diverse environment at KU.”
As a member of the organization last year, Hiegert enjoyed participating in OUTLaws & Allies events such as an annual tailgate with Lawrence High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance Club, a panel and movie screening of the film “Milk” First Legion - GERSTAL007 - Heer Infantry Kneeling Firing - WWII, and a presentation about the ban on transgender military service by 1 43 Best Model Lola T70 Coupe Car from 1968 12 H of Sebring.
Hiegert is also the vice president of the Dean’s Diversity Leadership Council, 2L Representative for the Black Law Students Association and Sergeant-at-Arms for the American Civil Liberties Union of KU.

The state of Kansas recently enacted changes to the law related to limited liability companies, supported by a drafting team led by University of Kansas School of Law faculty, alumni and supporters.
The team drafted revisions to the state’s statutes governing LLCs on behalf of the Kansas Bar Association. The revisions amend the Kansas Revised Limited Liability Company Act and the Business Entity Standard Treatment Act.
Recently retired KU Law KK-Scale KKDC180152 VW T1 Samba, 1959, bluee creme chaired the drafting subcommittee, joined by 1 43 Skyline 2000 Gt-R. They worked with attorneys William Matthews, L’97, and William Quick, along with Garrett Roe of the Kansas Secretary of State’s Office. The group was a subcommittee of the KBA Section on Corporation, Banking and Business Law.
The subcommittee recommended four significant changes for LLCs: establishing public benefit LLCs; adopting changes regarding series LLCs; allowing LLC divisions; and clarifying that default fiduciary duties apply to LLCs. Hecker and Matthews testified this spring in support of the revisions in the Judiciary Committees of the Kansas House.
During the 2017 legislative session, Hecker, Harper Ho and the subcommittee provided research and testimony in support of allowing public benefit corporations in Kansas. Model_kits Hobby Japan MARK43 1 43 Honda Quinto Integra (AV) Gsi Victoria Red SBNorev 1 43 - Citroen Jumper whiteoThose companies are profit-oriented for shareholders, while also supporting a mission that provides public benefit, Hecker said. The law allowing public benefit corporations took effect in July 2017. The 2019 update extends that ability to LLCs.
“This bill does the same thing for limited liability companies – you can have limited liability companies that are for-profit but are also for the public good,” Hecker said.
The public benefit LLC and other revisions are based largely on Delaware law, considered the gold standard on business entity law. Kansas has patterned its business statutes on Delaware dating back to the 1940s or earlier, Hecker said. That’s because Delaware updates its statutes every year and has a special court to hear business cases.
“When Delaware updated its series LLC statute in a way we viewed as beneficial to Kansas, we decided to draft a bill adopting that change and also making other updates to the statute,” Hecker said. The revisions all follow Delaware law.
House Bill 2039 passed during the 2019 Kansas legislative session and was signed by Gov. Laura Kelly. It took effect on July 1, with the exception of the series LLC provisions, which take effect on July 1, 2020.
Hecker has researched, drafted and testified on business law in Kansas regularly since the late 1990s, when he pushed for the Revised Uniform Partnership Act to be adopted in the state. Hecker considers this work his lasting impact on the law. He retired from the KU Law faculty this summer, after 47 years of teaching business law.

A professor at the University of Kansas School of Law is digging in – sometimes literally – to the challenges of environmental protection during a teaching residency this summer.
KU Law Professor Uma Outka is spending six weeks as a Distinguished Scholar in Residence at the Welly 1 18 Jeep 1941 Willys MB Racing Car Vehicle Diecast Model NEW IN BOXDINKY 138 HILLMAN IMP SALOON in Honolulu.
“This is a very interesting time to be in Hawaii from an energy and environmental law perspective, as it was the first state to set a 100% renewable energy goal for its electricity sector,” Outka said.
During her residency, Outka is teaching a course on environmental justice, working on her own scholarship, and connecting with faculty members and attorneys involved in energy and environmental law.
During the trip, Outka and the rest of the environmental law team planted 521 native trees and understory plants as part of a massive restoration effort. The refuge was established in 1985 for the protection of endangered Hawaiian forest birds and their habitat on the windward slope of Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano on the Island of Hawai’i.
“The refuge is a clear example of the importance of the Endangered Species Act and the attention it brings to the need to protect threatened and endangered species of birds and plants from extinction,” Outka said. 1967 DODGE CHARGER 1 24 DIECAST FACTORY SEALED 2003 CLASSIC METAL WORKS NOS NEO NEO46575 1 43 MERCEDES 500SEC AMG BB MAGIC TOP CONgreenIBLE 1985 METALLIC WHI
The environmental law team joined Baron Horiuchi, an award-winning U.S. Fish and Wildlife horticulturalist who leads the restoration project. Horiuchi has lived in a remote area of the refuge since 1996. With volunteer support from teams like the one Outka joined, Horiuchi has planted over 500,000 native trees and plants for endangered bird habitats.
“The trip was eye-opening – I hadn’t fully appreciated how much work goes into restoring refuge land for native species,” Outka said. “It was a privilege to spend time alongside this dedicated expert planting in an area of Hakalau where the public is not allowed without permission.”
Working with the school’s environmental law program, Outka has made connections for her work in energy, environmental law and climate policy. The University of Hawai’i has strong faculty involvement in the Academy of Environmental Law of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). KU Law recently became an institutional member of that organization.
“I am learning more about how KU Law faculty members working in environmental and international law can engage with a truly international cohort of scholars focused on the environment,” Outka said.
Outka’s current research focuses on the effects of energy law on low-income households. Continuing that research in Hawaii – a state with a SAM021 Mtd. Samurai Charging w Yari & Sashimono - Takeda Clan by First Legion, affordable housing issues and income disparity – is helpful in considering how equity concerns overlap with energy reform, Outka said.Vintage - LAMBORGHINI MARZAL - 1 43 Sablon n°6 Belgium - perfectIXO RAM326 FORD FOCUS RS WRC N.3 WINNER JORDANIE RALLY HIRVONEN-LEHTINEN 1 43
“Home energy bills are a strain for many low-income households, and there is potential in clean energy reform efforts to mitigate this burden in many ways,” she said.
Outka was honored this year with the 2019 Immel Award for Teaching Excellence for her record of teaching at KU Law in the areas of environmental law, energy law, property and related courses. She was also recognized this year with the William R. Scott Law Professorship, which recognizes a faculty member’s record of scholarship, concern for students, colleagues and the law school, and service to the University, professional organizations, and communities at the local, state, national and international levels.
Her most recent article, titled Matrix MX50407-031 1 43 DELAGE D8S DE VILLARS ROADSTER 1933 WHITE examines corporate pledges and state energy laws. It appears in the Utah Law Review.

At the beginning of my 2L year, I began to look at what type of law I would be interested in practicing after graduation. I liked the idea of doing estate planning and the accompanying work that goes along with that planning. I took Professor Reaves’ Elder Law class in the fall. That course provided a good overview of the programs and benefits that are available to older clients.
In the spring, I structured my schedule so that I could spend Fridays in an externship with the Kansas Legal Services office in Kansas City, Kansas. KLS is funded by several different state and federal funding allocations. Some of that funding is specifically allocated for older clients (over 60 years of age). As an “Elder Law” extern, I was assigned to those cases funded for elder clients. That provided me with the opportunity to work a wide variety of issues. I drafted wills and Powers of Attorney, wrote land transfer deeds, gave advice on elder care and Medicaid considerations, and provided statutory guidance.
Although I was not an expert on any of these topics, I was assigned to an experienced lawyer in the office who provided necessary guidance as I worked through each issue. It was an excellent opportunity to practice transactional law while under the direct supervision of experienced lawyers. My time at KLS included the opportunity to interview clients at senior centers around the metro with my advising attorney. Those interviews covered a myriad of issues and allowed face to face interactions to deal with those issues. It was particularly rewarding when we could prepare the appropriate legal documents on site and meet their legal needs in a single visit.
While I worked on Elder Law issues with my advising attorney, I also had the opportunity to learn from lawyers in the other specialties at KLS. That gave me the opportunity to observe court cases and participate in conferences for a wide variety of legal issues. I also gained an appreciation for the complexities of operating a law office under the budget constraints and requirements of different government programs.
The field placement experience provided me with a broad overview of the type of legal issues that elder clients face and the legal documents that support responsible later life planning. I didn’t specifically build estate plans while in the field placement but the interviews that I did and the documents I drafted gave me a solid background on many of the components of an estate plan. I’ll take Professor Donaldson’s Estate Planning Principles and Practice classes during my 3L year and expect to incorporate many of the things that I’ve learned in the elder law field placement.

Kansan Ellen Bertels finds reward in the opportunity to help those in need in her home state.
Bertels is spending her summer as a summer clerk at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Foundation of Kansas in Wichita. The ACLU Foundation of Kansas is an organization dedicated to protecting civil rights and liberties for Kansans.
“The ACLU of Kansas is the preeminent public interest impact litigation group in Kansas,” Bertels said. “Their attorneys get to work on the forefront of state and federal law all around the state. I was so excited when I saw there was a 1L position where I could research Constitutional law and work directly with social and public policy issues in my home state.”
Bertels, a rising 2L from Overland Park, aspires to make a difference for Kansans.
“The more familiar I become with the practice of law in Kansas and the more compassionate people I meet advocating for underserved and underrepresented Kansans, the more sure I am that I want to stay in Kansas and follow in their footsteps,” she said.
At her internship, Bertels attends hearings, depositions and client meetings; conducts research; helps draft deposition and direct examination questions; reviews and analyzes discovery documents as they come in; and interviews potential clients. Bertels enjoys the quick pace of her office’s workflow and the opportunity to do new things each day.
“It is really rewarding to get to do work that serves communities all across the state of Kansas,” she said.
Bertels was pleasantly surprised by how involved she gets to be with supervising attorneys and their work at her internship.
“It’s challenging, but it’s also a real privilege to be in the middle of it after only one year of law school,” she said.MARK43 1 43 MAZDA Roadster (NB8C) RS 1998 Classic Red PM4325AR JapanMaserati Levante V8 Trofeo grey 1 18 - BBRC1844A BBR
Bertels earned undergraduate degrees in English and Italian from the University of Kansas. She decided to stay in Lawrence for an additional three years to pursue her legal education after receiving, “incredible support from staff and faculty at KU before even submitting an application.”
“I knew that there were so many opportunities for me to get involved — clinics, research, publications, student groups — and that I wasn’t precluded from doing any of them based on the size of the student body or because of an overly competitive culture among the students,” Bertels said.
Bertels is the president of the Public Interest Law Society; the vice president of KU’s chapter of the American Constitution Society; a KU Law Student Ambassador; a research assistant for 1L Lawyering classes with Professor Pamela Keller;Jaguar F Type R Coupe (2015) Composite Model Car 736521 18 Gemballa Mig-U1 (Red) GT Spirit GT766 and a member of both Women in Law and OUTLaws & Allies.
She looks forward to the opportunity to pursue VINTAGE DINKY TOYS MODEL No.161 FORD MUSTANG 2+2 PERSPEX BOX VN MIB at KU Law and experience other forms of public interest litigation. Ultimately, Bertels plans to pursue a career in her home state as a litigator or trial attorney with a focus on public interest work.
“Kansas is wonderful, but there is so much work to be done to make it a safe and equitable place for everyone,” Bertels said.

A law school alumnus has pledged to support students pursuing public interest work at the University of Kansas School of Law.
The planned estate gift by Donald Giffin, L’53, is a percentage of investments with a maximum value not to exceed $1 million. The gift will go toward establishing the Donald and Esther Atha Giffin Public Interest Law Fund. The fund will provide support that may include scholarships, stipends, awards, fellowships and research assistantships for KU Law students pursuing public interest law.
Donald Giffin said he hopes the gift will allow KU Law students “to study public interest law and to become interested in it, despite the cost of obtaining an education in law.”
Giffin had followed the work of the Vintage Original 1930s Girard Chrysler Airflow Fiction Pressed Steel Toy CarHeco Modèles Kit Monté 1 43 - Ferrari 250 Europa redMercedes-Benz 1 12 Model Car GT S AMG C190 B66961339 at Yale Law School, and wanted to support interest in work that’s “compassionate and considerate to all members of society” at KU Law, he said.
Stephen Mazza, dean of the law school, expressed his gratitude for the gift.
“The Giffin family’s commitment to supporting education and opportunities for future Jayhawk lawyers is admirable. This latest gift will open doors for students wanting to pursue public interest law, regardless of their resources,” Mazza said.
Giffin has been a consistent supporter of the law school as an alumnus. He has been part of the school’s Board of Governors for nearly 30 years, including time as the president of the board and as a senior governor. In 2007, Giffin received the Distinguished Alumni Award, the law school’s highest honor. He is a recipient of the James Woods Green Medallion and previously was an advisor and supporter for the school’s LL.M. in Elder Law program.
During his time as a student at KU Law, Giffin was a founder and editor in chief of the Kansas Law Review, and a member of Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity and Order of the Coif. Giffin also holds a bachelor’s degree from KU and an LL.M. from Yale Law School.
“My legal education has been very good to me,” Giffin said. “I’ve appreciated it and been able to use it throughout my life, and I’ve been very grateful for it.”
Giffin is a retired partner at Scania R Low Loader with Atkinson Borderer Scotlee Transport, where he practiced business litigation and alternative dispute resolution, concentrating in the areas of civil litigation, antitrust litigation and officers, and directors and professional liability law.
