FEATURES FROM THE SUMMER 2004 "STANFORD LAWYER"UPCOMING REGIONAL EVENT
"LOOKING FOR MORE THAN A FEW GOOD DIRECTORS"
"The New York Times" featured the Law School's Directors' College, to which Joseph Grundfest, the W.A. Franke Professor of Law and Business and former SEC Commissioner, has now for a decade attracted such luminaries as SEC Chairman William Donaldson, Berkshire Hathaway Vice-Chairman Charles Munger, securities attorney William Lerach, and Goldman Sachs Chair and CEO Henry M. Paulson, Jr. The "San Francisco Chronicle" covered the Munger and Donaldson keynote speeches in "Dueling Views of Reform."
"SUMMER ASSOCIATES WORK ON SUPREME COURT PLEADINGS"
"The American Lawyer" looked at the Law School's Supreme Court Litigation Clinic, led by Kenneth and Harle Montgomery Professor of Public Interest Law Pamela Karlan, which in June went three for three in persuading the U.S. Supreme Court to grant petitions for certiorari on which much of the actual legal work was done by Stanford Law students.

"NEW COPYRIGHT GRANTS ARTISTS GREATER LICENSE"
In June, the "International Herald Tribune" covered the launch of the German version of Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization cofounded by Lawrence Lessig, Professor of Law and John A. Wilson Distinguished Faculty Scholar, to give artists the freedom to choose "how they want to share the work, specifying whether they want credit for reuse, whether they want to be paid for commercial use, and whether it is acceptable to change it."
