Volume 47 Spring 2013

Fall Symposium, “Crisis in the Judiciary” The New England Law Review’s fall symposium, “Crisis in the Judiciary,” was held on November 15, 2012. The symposium was cosponsored by the Boston Bar Association, and was very well attended. The discussion focused on the state court’s fiscal obstacles and suggested ways to address this pressing issue. The morning panel, “A State Court System in Financial Crisis,” presented a variety of perspectives on the issue of state court funding. Panelists included the Honorable Robert J. Cordy, associate justice, Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and New England Law adjunct professor; Stewart Aaron, partner, Porter & Arnold, LLP, and president, New York County Lawyers’ Association; Paul T. Dacier, executive vice president and general counsel, EMC Corporation; Dean Emeritus Jon L. Mills, University of Florida Levin College of Law; Professor David A. Hoffman, Harvard Law School, founder, Boston Law Collaborative, LLC; and Harry Spence, court administrator, Massachusetts Trial Courts. New England Law | Boston Professor Jordan Singer moderated the discussion. The second panel, “Benchmarking ‘Justice on a Budget,’” examined specialized cases of state funding crises and showcased several interesting theories on how they might be averted. Panelists included Professor Donald Campbell, Mississippi College School of Law; Professor Martha Davis, Northeastern University School of Law; Dr. Roger Hartley, Western Carolina University; Professor Marie D. Natoli, Emmanuel College; and Lee Suskin, former administrator, Vermont State Courts. The Honorable William I. Cowin, justice, Massachusetts Court of Appeals (retired) moderated. A luncheon keynote address was given by Dean John Broderick, University of New Hampshire School of Law.

Dear New England Law Review Alumni: On behalf of Volume 47, I am pleased to be sending you our inaugural Alumni Newsletter. This newsletter highlights some of the recent accomplishments of the Law Review and its staff. We are also proud to introduce our new alumni relations effort. Volume 47 has instituted this new alumni relations effort to reach out to our alumni in order to keep you informed about the Law Review’s progress, events, and staff. We believe that our proud alumni have a strong connection to the Law Review, given the amount of time, effort, and dedication each member gives to the Law Review while on the staff. We believe that there is a need to connect with these alumni and keep them involved so that Law Review truly becomes a life-long endeavor. To promote this effort we will be surveying interest in a variety of events, including a Law Review alumni networking event to cultivate these relationships with fellow alumni and the current staff and to help bring our small community together. If you have any questions or the Law Review can be of service in any way, please do not hesitate to contact either me (william.h.wynne@nesl.edu) or our new Alumni Relations Editor Kim Butler (kimberly.a.butler@nesl.edu) by email or by phone at (617) 422-7294. Thank you for your continued support of the New England Law Review. Please enjoy the newsletter and the future correspondence regarding our new programs and events. Sincerely, j|ÄÄ|tÅ jçÇÇx William H. Wynne IV Editor-in-Chief

Find Out What’s Happening on On Remand On Remand was developed and launched by the members of the Volume 45 editorial board. It is an online resource featuring original articles and legal commentaries. The growth of On Remand has been incredible. Our online presence is far superior to even the highest-ranked law reviews in the country. We believe we have done justice to the vision of the editors of Volume 45 in those two short years since the concept’s inception. As the use of digital media in the legal field increases and the longevity of paper law reviews is in question, On Remand is the New England Law Review’s future. The first On Remand articles under volume 47 have been published. The first is written by Boston University professor and New England Law | Boston alum Kabrina Chang on social media's impact on employment law. Her article is available On Remand here: http://newenglrev.com/on-remand-2/v47orchang/ The second article published this year On Remand is by Mark Szal, associate attorney at Donovan | Hatem, New England Law Review alum, and adjunct professor at New England Law | Boston. His article on the NFL "Bountygate" scandal is available On Remand here: http://newenglrev.com/on-remand-2/volume-47-on-remand/szalprotecting-the-shield-and-its-players/ The most recent addition to On Remand is Joseph Blocher’s “Instituting First Amendment Institutionalism, A Book Review of First Amendment Institutions by Paul Horwitz.” His article is available here: http://newenglrev.com/blocher-implementing-first-amendment-institutionalism/ Do not be left in the dark!

Executive Article Editor Justin Kesselman Takes First Place in Writing Competition The Law Review is very proud of third-year student Justin Kesselman’s tremendous accomplishment winning first place in the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) national Mary Moers Wenig 2012 Student Writing Competition. Keep your eyes peeled in the ACTEC Law Journal for his winning paper, “Can State Law Remedies Revive Statutes Stricken by ERISA’s Preemption Provision?” Last year, Kesselman excelled in the National Tax Moot Court Competition, earning first runner-up for the Best Brief award and finishing as a quarterfinalist overall.

Managing Editor Leigh Ann Johnson Runner-up at National Trial Competition Volume 47 Executive Board member Leigh Ann Johnson finished as runner-up at the National Trial Competition, regional competition. Twenty teams from ten law schools participated. Johnson and partner Sara Peeling entered the final round as the top-seeded team. These two students demonstrated advanced advocacy skills; a judge and a panel of practicing attorneys evaluated and scored the teams. Johnson hopes this experience will give her an edge at her internship with the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

Congratulations to Justin from the Law Review community!
