2007-2008 Partners Archive

Boalt Hall’s Partners in Leadership Challenge invites alumni who work at firms with five or more Boalt graduates to join together to make a generous gift to the school. Those groups that achieve 100 percent participation receive special benefits and are honored as Partners in Leadership. Gifts to any area of the law school count. Whether you wish to advance Dean Edley’s vision for the school with a gift to the Boalt Hall Fund or by directing your gift toward financial aid, faculty recruitment, research initiatives, clinical projects, student journals, or another critically important area—your gift counts.

If you have already made a gift of any kind to Boalt Hall during this fiscal year, it will count toward the Partners in Leadership Challenge. If you haven’t given yet, now is the perfect time. Join with your fellow graduates and become Partners in Leadership.

 

We are delighted to recognize the law firms and organizations participating in the campaign in 2007-2008. Click on the name to go to each firm's or organization's webpage.

Highlights from Spotlight on Leadership 2006

Boalt's Steinhart Courtyard buzzed with activity on August 31 as about 125-150 students got a chance to informally meet alums representing 29 well-known law firms—and vice versa. Boalt graduates attending the first-ever Spotlight on Leadership reception shared insights about everything from the specialties to the work culture at their firms with students seeking summer positions and eventual fulltime jobs.

On hand were alums whose firms had achieved 100 percent participation in Boalt's Partners in Leadership law firm giving program. Launched in 2003, Partners in Leadership seeks annual gifts to the school from every Boalt graduate at each participating firm. "But for Boalt, where would I be now?" said James Ganulin '59, of counsel at Fresno-based Baker, Manock & Jensen. All eight Boalt graduates there donated to the program.

Along with the satisfaction of giving back to Boalt, participants said Partners in Leadership—and the August 31 reception--gave them valuable exposure to Boalt students, who are highly prized job candidates. "It helps firms stand out more," said Varya Simpson '91, senior counsel at Nixon Peabody, where all 16 alums supported the law school this past year.

Students also praised the event. "The most important part for me of working somewhere is a sense of the people," said Sara Adibisedeh '06, who is interested in intellectual property litigation and stopped by the Morrison & Foerster table for some information. Students said they welcomed the opportunity to ask questions in a casual, one-on-one setting.

Greg Broome '90, a partner at Thelen Reid & Priest, was pleased to answer queries about his national firm and its San Francisco office. The market for Boalt students is "very competitive," Broome noted. "Any leg up we can get with a student is helpful."
