SIMKIN ' S OWN STORY OF THE PEREGRINUS " You ask for the origin of Peregrinus. I well remember its birth - in fact, I was pre- sent at the accouchement. " This nondescript sprang fully armed and equipped for its mission not from a mental Jove, but from the disori- ent4ed brain of a Savage. " Many years ago, I was trying to explain to the class in Equity, the origin of the system in Rome and the sources of equity in the Roman Empire. At the time fledglings just from the high schools were admitted to the Law School. Many of them had never heard of the Roman Empire, and not a few spelled cow with a " K. " Well, I explained to them than when Rome conquered a nation it was incorporated into the Roman Empire sub- ject to its own laws and not to the laws of Rome - that the Roman citizen was not subject of the laws of these incorporated nations - that in due course commerce sprang up between the citizens of Rome and barbaric nations, and there was no law to determine and settle their contractual relations. The Roman Emperor, to set- tle the troubles arising out of the fact that there was no law applicable to control their contracts, appointed a Praetor or chancellor to trav- el among these nations and to settle all disputes without reference to the Laws of Rome, or of the incorporated Nations, but to do justice and decide all disputes, alone by the conscience of the Praetor. Peregrinating from one nation to the other, he was called a Praetor Peregrinus. " The boneheads of the class evidently thought that Peregrinus was an internal organ of the body for they continually greeted each other, " ' How is your Peregrinus today? " This fact seems to have developed the humorous side of the inci- dent, and Russell Savage developed a concrete expres- sion of it on the blackboard and thus the tradition began. Russell drew better than he knew, for the nondescript animal symbolizes both in limb and attitude the maxims in equity that guide the administration of the system. For instance, on one of the front feet as originally drawn was an Irish ditcher ' s boot - indicating the law ' s protec- tion of the least of mankind. On the other front foot were naked claws, indicating the greatest of mankind must fear its power. The arched back in the attitude of spring- ing, indicated the law was ever ready to protect right or prevent wrong. The sharp beak indicated the power to penetrate the mysteries of the law which the true student must obtain by study. The bushy tail indicated that Equity brushes away the technicalities of the law and does justice to the merits.

At the turn of the century, a salesperson offered to rent seniors caps and gowns. At that time, the School of Law was in the basement of the Main Building. No one thought to send a message downstairs and invite even a few law seniors to the meeting. A committee of faculty and seniors met and decided that the class would look very good in caps and gowns. An order went out that all seniors were to wear caps and gowns for the com- mencement. The law students then met, and, because they had not been invited to the original meeting and had not been consulted on the advisability of this step, they refused to wear caps and gowns. Perhaps foreshadowing later events, they then formulated the reason to uphold their decision. This was, that caps and gowns at such a time were traditional to, and rep- resentative of. the academic school and not the profes- sional school. Granted even that judges had worn the wig and gown for centuries, it was worn for a purpose entirely distinct from the pur- pose here proposed. The faculty met with the President, and a decision was reached that the law students must conform to the wishes of the senior class or they must wear a significant insignia at the exercises. It was not in a spirit of concili- ation or in appreciation of the dignity of the occasion that the sunflower was cho- sen as the " distinctive insignia. " It was agreed, however, that the senior law students would wear white suits. Once more reasons were advanced to justify the choice of the flower. The sunflower, genus Helianthus, belongs to a family of world- wide distribution. So, also do lawyers. As the sunflower always keeps it face turned to the sun, the lawyer turns to the light of justice. The Sunflower Ceremony used to be held once during the year, on Commencement Day. As the School of Law student population grew, it was decided to have two exercises during the year. one in November for the December graduates and another one in May for the May and August graduates. Originally, a sunflower was pinned on each senior by his or her best friend. This custom changed, however, and now an Associate Dean or Assistant Dean of the School of Law assumes this responsibility.

We cannot do justice to these contributions in the time available before this issue of Townes Hall Notes goes to press. We will provide furthur reflections on his career and its impact on this school and the law in future issues and at future events. What follows are several pieces previous- ly written in his honor. First are two items previously published in 75 Texas Law Review, No. 7 (1997) as part of the W. Page Keeton Symposium on Tort Law. One is the Foreword to the Symposium written by Guido Calabresi, the former Dean of Yale Law School and now a judge of the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. The other is the first two paragraphs of the Introduction to that Symposium by Chief Justice Phillips of the Supreme Court of Texas. Finally, we reprint the piece I wrote on the occasion of Dean Keeton ' s retire- ment from teaching in 1995. He had retired as Dean in 1974 but continued to teach full- time until he reached the then-mandatory retirement age of seventy in 1979, and on a half-time basis thereafter, offering a popular torts seminar each semester, until the Fall of 1995. His leadership, scholarship and good works had been acknowledged by all and recognized in many forms and on many occasions. This continued even after his retirement. When his failing health permit- ted, he would attend the annual banquets of the Keeton Fellows held at the Chancellor ' s home and receive the applause and plaudits of these many admirers. In 1998, the City Council of Austin unanimously voted to change East 26th Street to Dean Keeton Street. We celebrated this event at the Law School with Page and his wife, Madge, in attendance in wheelchairs, to listen to praise from Mayor Kirk Watson, Judge Thomas Reavley, and others. Shortly thereafter, the 8 - W. Page Keeton engineering students, con- tinuing a long- standing rival- ry, changed the street sign back to 26th Street on the grounds that numbering streets was more rational. Yet even these unpoetic souls acknowledged in their manifesto that Dean Keeton was other- wise worthy of the honor. Prior to Page Keeton ' s death, UT President Larry Faulkner approved our rec- ommendation that the northeast por- tion of Townes Hall — the area containing our four large classrooms — be named the Dean Keeton Wing. Page knew of this honor and also of our commissioning of a bronze bust for display in that area. Among Page ' s many wonderful qualities were his charisma and a joie de vivre that allowed him to enjoy the apprecia- tion of so many for the progress of what he often and properly described as, " man law school. " We are all happy that he knew of these final honors that will keep his memory and visage before unending generations of law students as an inspiration to the greatest level of achievement and service. practitioners look into, they will find a major contribution by him. And the contri- butions that he has made have a quality all their own because one can always recognize Page Keeton ' s touch. His work combines in the best way the theoretical and the intensely practical. Good sense, sound judgement, and real insights, always written in a way that guides the judge, the practi- tioner, and the scholar — we take these so much for granted in Page ' s work that we Foreword to Symposium 75 Texas Law Review, No. 7 (1997) by Guido Calabresi When the history of tort law in the last half of the twentieth century is written, no person will loom larger than W. Page Keeton. Whatever area of torts scholars of almost forget how rare such scholarship is. Introduction to the Symposium 75 Texas Law Review No. 7 (1997) by Thomas R. Phillips By devoting this year ' s Symposium to the law of torts and dedicating it to Dean W.

Thanks to Dean Keeton ' s foresight, the student editors of the Law Review gained lasting editorial and financial inde- pendence. Finally, in three-quarters of a century, no one has approached the Dean in sheer numbers of contributions to the Review. From his three student comments in 1930 to his tribute to Professor Parker Fielder fifty-five years later, he wrote thirty- one articles and reviewed five books for this publication. His further contributions to and influence upon other writings as a stu- dent editor, faculty advisor, and colleague are incalculable. The University of Texas has accorded many honors to this living legend, who served on the faculty for all but six years from 1932 until 1995. The editors of the Review dedicated their August 1974 issue to him up on his retirement from twenty-five years as Dean, with tributes from Justice Lewis Powell, Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Joe Greenhill, attorney Harry Reasoner, and Professors Marshall S. Shapo, John W. Wade, Charles Alan Wright, George Schatzki, and Clarence Morris. These reminiscences tell of Keeton ' s successful battles for racial toler- ance and academic freedom at The Univeristy of Texas, his path-breaking scholarship in diverse areas of tort law, and his public contributions ranging from help- ing Texas draft a proposed new state consti- tution to heading the American Association of Law Schools. His colleagues recount his remarkable leadership skill, while his stu- dents marvel at his pedagogical creativity, and all emphasize his unshakable integrity and unfailing generosity. " The End of an Era: Page Keeton Retires " Townes Hall Notes, Fall 1995 by Dean M. Michael Sharlot The decision of W. Page Keeton — the greatest Dean The University of Texas School of Law has ever had — to retire marks the end of an era. Page had a story- book career that puts Horatio Alger to shame. Coming out of what we would now call " a seriously deprived background " in East Texas, he put himself through the University and then the Law School, gradu- ating in 1931. He then arranged for his brothers to have the advantages of higher education. His devotion to his family is demonstrated by the wonderful children and grandchildren who have been inspired by his example. His personal kindness is leg- endary. Many a graduate can tell of an emergency loan from the Dean that made it possible to pay rent or finish a semester. He received his BA and LLB as combined degrees from the University in 1931. He joined the faculty in 1932, and served the Law School continuously with two excep- tions. During World War II, he was Chief Counsel, Fuel Division, Office of Price Administration, and Assistant Chief Counsel, Petroleum Administration for War from 1942 to 1945. From 1946 thhrough 1949, he was Dean of the University of Oklahoma School of Law. He received an SJD from Harvard in 1936 and his LLD (Honorary) from Southern Methodist University in 1974. Page became Dean of the Law School in 1949, a position he held for twenty-five years. His tenure as our Dean is the longest in the School ' s history but involved much more than longevity. He arrived at a school that was not readily distinguishable from most other state schools, and laid the foun - dation for its transformation into an institu- tion of the first rank in American legal edu- cation. His extraordinary time with us as Dean and Professor should be called, by anal- ogy to Queen Victoria, " The Keetonian Age. " His impact was incomparable. He searched out and hired great talent from other schools and from practice. He initiat- ed our earliest efforts at obtainig significant private subsidies from alumni and others, providing the margin of excellence that now distinguishes Texas. It was during his tenure as Dean that both the Law School Foundation and the Law Alumni Association were created. After stepping down as Dean, he contin- ued to teach for the next twenty-one years. Ernest E. Smith, who succeeded him as Dean in 1974, states that " Page Keeton easi- ly ranks among the greatest Deans that any law school has ever had. Page ' s efforts brought Texas into the top ranks of the law Schools in the country. " John F. Sutton, Jr., 1941, who was Dean from 1979 to 1984, says, " Everyone knows that during a deanship of twenty-five years our affable, hard-hitting, lovable, astute, aggressive Dean Page Keeton was instrumental in changing the status of our good regional law school into that of a leading national law school, and that along the way he willingly skirmished with anyone — politicians, university administrators, or others — who intentional- ly or unintentionally tended to slow his progress. Everyone knows that. " UT Eecutive Vice President and Provost Mark G. Yudof [now the President of the University of Minnesota], who was Dean from 1984 until 1994, says, " Page taught all of us on the faculty that it is possible to achieve excellence while nurturing civility, respect and community. Page Keeton performed all of the duties of a faculty member superlatively. He was an enormously effective and appreciated teacher, a scholar of national reputation, and a person who provided highly esteemed ser- vice to his community, his state, and his nation. We — alumni, students, and faculty — are all so much richer for being a part of an institution on which Page Keeton has placed his indelible stamp. On a numbr of occations Page Keeton stood up against powerful political forces inside and outside the University when he believed academic freedom or civil rights were in jeopardy. The ties he built with alumni and leaders of the judiciary, bar, and legislature served the School well in its process of transformation into a national law school. Every Dean we have had since — and we have been blessed with many tal- ented and devoted ones — has operated with the knowledge that this was Page ' s school. We could only hope to lay another course of bricks on the ambitious and true foundation that Page Keeton has created. A truly great man has been lost, but the memory of his works lives on in his family, his students, his friends and colleagues, and in this institution that will bear his stamp for- ever. W.

A handful of numbers will illustrate the condition of the Law School during this year. IS is our latest overall ranking by U.S. World Report. Without endorsing the flawed system by which the ranking is calculated, we must recognize that such rankings are important to many people, and we were naturally gratified to be placed 15th which is our highest ranking. This can properly be considered an exceptional achievement given the difficulties of com- peting with other national schools; even with the other great public law schools which are able to charge vastly more in tuition. Note also that three curricular areas at Texas were ranked among the top 10 in the nation: Dispute Resolution where we were 9th: Tax where we were 6th; and Intellectual Property where we were tied for 5th. Another is 1st. For the first time in our history a UT team won the ATLA National Mock Trial Competition National Championship over more than 200 teams from 186 schools. Our other Board of Advocates team placed 5th nationally. The University Tower was lit orange in honor of this great victory, suggesting that we finally have a Law School in which the football teatn can take pride. 93.55% represents the pass rate of our graduates on the February 1999 Texas Bar Examination. This marked a substantial improvement over the 87% pass rate on the July 1998 exam. We were second only to Baylor and 15 percentage points ahead of the state ' s overall pass rate. 3% is another number of note. This rep- resents our first increase in the number of applications (3.282) that we have had since 1994. This occurred in the teeth of a steady level of law school applications nationally. After eight years of decline in the number of persons seeking admission to all American law schools, it was thought that the number of candidates would begin to increase, but nationally this does not appear to have hap- pened. We also enjoyed a 17.5% increase in the number of African-American applicants and a 19.2% increase in the number of Mexican-American applicants. We have increased the number of offers made to can- didates from these groups and hope to have an increase in the number enrolled, but the competition is fierce with other elite schools all over the nation. It is well to bear in mind this school ' s exceptional contribution to the effort to diversify the legal profession. During the decade before Hopwood. we graduated more African-Americans and Mexican- Americans than did any other law school not founded to serve minorities. Despite our continued efforts to enroll sig- nificant numbers of minority students, only a victory in our appeal of the Hopwood decision will permit us to resume our lead- ership role in this area. □ 97.47% was the percentage employed of our 1998 graduating class. They also achieved an average starting salary of $61,545. Finall y, and with great gratitude, I want to mention 21%. This is the percentage of alumni who made gifts to the school this year. It is especially gratifying that we have moved to this point after many years in which only 6% to 8% of alumni participat- ed. It is only through the generosity of our alumni that the school has been able to dis- charge, with such distinction, its assigned task of preparing our enormously able stu- dent body to become skilled practitioners and leaders of the state and nation. It has been in many ways a banner year for all parts of the law school community. We bid hasta la vista to our graduating class with the best wishes for their careers and lives. We look forward to their many achievements that will reflect so well on their alma mater, and hope that they will feel a continuing sense of gratitude for how the school transformed their lives, and will provide the support to make that experience and education available to future students.

The BOA promotes excellence in trial and appellate advocacy, as well as other forms of dispute resolution. The BOA is open to all students at the law school, but participa- tion is a prerequisite for mem- bership. Students earn member- ship points through participa- tion in competitions and through administrative duties. Officers are elected. The Board of Advocacy is responsible for coordinating every interscholastic and intra- mural advocacy competition held at UT. BOA sponsors com- petitions including mock trial, moot court, negotiation, voir dire, and client counseling. These competitions are held in cities across the country. A spring banquet honors out- standing competitors, officers, and attorneys who support the organization. Advocacy awards, such as membership in T he Order of the Barristers, are pre- sented at this banquet. 1999 National Champion Admiralty Moot Court Team William Dominguez, Charles Ragland, Coach Bruce Bennett, Ralph Graham, Robert Galvin. Board of Advocates The University of Texas School of Law claims the priviledge of being the creator of the Order of the Barristers. The Order recog- nizes excellency in appellate advocacy (moot court) and trial advocacy (mock trial). Eventually the Order was expended on a nationwide scale, and today there are over 100 law schools across the country which boast Order of Barristers chapters. The UT law school is now the national administrator for the Order. •k Order of the it Barristers Brad Benoit John Scott Black Jennifer Britton Leah Castella Glenn Cormier Don Cruse Robert Galvin Laurie Higginbotham Jeremy Monthy MacRust -k Niemann Cup k Best Litigator of the Graduating Class John Scott Black Establishe d in 1912, Chancellors is the most prestigious honorary society of the School of Law.

The first UT team swept the ballots at the Kansas City regional competition and then advanced to the National Student Trial Advocacy compe- tition in New Orleans, bringing home the trophy. The second team finished fifth. Robert C. May, coach of the team and a professional trial lawyer, said his team had a tremendous amount of experi- ence and they were willing to work hard. " This team was just awesome and I ' m so proud of these guys, May said. " I cried when they announced we won. It was uncontrollable. " May said he felt anxious dur- ing the final round because it was a tough competition that could ' ve gone in any direction. He said the teams ' success was due to the mutually supportive family atmosphere. " These students set their lives aside to do this, " May said. The championship team con- sisted of law students Jennifer Britton, John Scott Black, Rex Zgarba and Kathy Silver. Britton said an unknown mis- take in the registration proce- dure prevented the team from receiving their preparation packet until February — several months late and just a month before the competition. " It was intense practive for about 20 hours a week, " Britton said. " But we knew if we could get ready in two weeks for rew- gionals, we could get ready for nationals. " Britton said the competing teams were given a case topic and had to act out each part of the trial from cross examina- tions to closing statements. She said the mock trials are a tremendous benefit to studnets studying to be a tral lawyer because they become familiar with courtroom settings and more comfortable in front of a jury- May added that the practice students receive from the mock trials is invaluable. " The trials can h elp you beyond measure by going through the actual trial phase, " May said. Black said the short prepara- tion time helped the team devel- op the focus they needed. " Our focus was at a level I ' d never seen, " Black said. " We saw each round as a battle and, after every round, we felt like we could go on and win the whole thing. " He added that the talented team, tremendous amount of work, and one of the finest trial coaches in the country con- tributed to their championship. Black said, because their team won first place in this champi- onship, they have a chance to be invited to another mock trial competition — The Tournament of Champions — where only championship schools compete. Glenn Cormier, chairman of the UT Board of Advocates, who manages logistics for the team, said, though the University is known for acade- mics, the students have proven that the University has a good advocacy program. " We go to all the heavy-hit- ting competitions and we do well, " Cormier said. " This championshiop certainly helps our reputation by bringing us up another notch.

TQs teach the legal research portion of this course and serve as teaching assistants to the writing lecturers for the legal writing portion of the course. Students selected to serve as Teaching Quizmasters must successfully complete a compe- tition based on demonstration of research, writing, and teaching skills. The TQs ' role in the law school community often extends beyond their official teaching duties. TQs are frequently called upon by their students to advise them on such matters as study techniques, career plans, taking examinations, personal problems, and how to adjust to the stress of law school. Being the one small group environ- ment in such a large law school, the TQ groups often participate in a variety of social and athlet- ic events, as well.

Five hundred neophyte law students took shelter from the August heat in Bates Recital Hal 1... just across the street from the most imposing battle station in the uni- verse, Townes Hall. Gathered together for the first time, these aspiring Jedi Lawyers looked for familiar faces from college or high school, and sized up the other new recruits who had been accepted for training. We pledged away three years of our lives, and thosands of dollars, in exchange for a Jedi education at one of the most presti- gious law schools in the universe. Together, we would learn ... of ...The Law. During tha t orientation, we heard from two speakers, Dean Michael Sharlot and Professor Bill Powers, both Jedi Masters. With Sharlot in his white suit and Powers dressed as ... well, Powers ... a cloud of trepidation settled over the once eager audi- ence ... To become a Jedi Master, must I first lose all fashion sense? We ' ve learned quite a bit since that day. BPL, UCC, UPC, TXCRPC, TLR, BBCC, MDL, ... and, of course, the synoptic gospels of aspirig lawyers, The Law accord- ing to Gilbert, Glannon, and Emmanuel. But we also learned some things that you can ' t find in a commercial outline. We learned that The Law, like The Force, is all around us. It ' s in the quality of the food we eat for breakfast; the first stoplight we come to on the way to work or school; every contract, lease, waiver, and license that we ' ve ever signed. We have been invited to join that select group of Jedi Knights that guide and protect The Law, the Law that guides and protects society at large. We have also learned a lot about ourselves at this Jedi training ground. Each of us learned how well, or how poorly, we handle adversity, stress, and competition. We also learned how other people in our class respond to those same challenges. Long after we forget who did well on bluebook exams, we will still remember who did well at being a good person. I have been told when we leave this place and venture out into the real world, we will face many temptations from The Dark Side of the Law: ethical compromises that promise shortcuts to wealth, power, and prestige. But we must remember the teach- ings of those sages long on wisdom but short in stature ... Yoda ... and Ddizenkowski, because unless we resist that seduction, The Law will lose its power. Our graduation marks the close of the first stage in our training to become Jedi Masters. We still have much to learn. To our Clients and Supervisors, be patient — we ' ll get there. To the other members of the graduating class ... May The Force Be With You. -J. Eric Lockridge 1 16- Sponsorships blocks away Editor discovers ' Rule Against Perpetuities ' and other mysteries of the law Dear Fellow UT Graduates, Well, we survived another year. We may never have figured out what the Rule Against Perpetuities really meant, and we may have caused great emo- tional stress to our friends and loved ones (remember, no neg- ligent infliction of emotional distress in Texas), but we final- ly made it. I hope that the pictures and events in this yearbook allow you to look back fondly on your law school experience— at least in a few years, after we ' re all a lot more successful, and have caught up on all the sleep we missed. Whether you ' re a first year, and are really not sure whether or not a nuclear war broke out, or a third-year, and you really don ' t care whether a nuclear war broke out, I hope that there ' s something in this year- book for you. I hope that our paths will cross in the future. Best Regards, Edward L.
