Scalia to preside over Moot Court

by Melissa Peerless
Daily Staff Reporter
United States Supreme Court
Justice Antonin Scalia will preside
as chief justice for the University
Law School's annual Henry M.
Campbell Moot Court Competi-
tion finals.
Associate Dean Edward Cooper
originated the idea to invite Scalia
to the University. "We would like
to have a Supreme Court justice on
the finals panel each year. Last year,
we invited Justice Scalia, but he
couldn't fit it into his schedule.
This year, he was able to accept our
invitation," he said.

Cooper added that Law School
Dean Lee Bollinger decided to invite
Scalia because he has never visited
the University before.
Participants in the competition
will argue three rounds of cases in
front of panels composed of promi-
nent legal figures. Scalia will sit on
the panel for the third round of
competition, which will take place
April 6. The question for the first-
round was handed out last Thursday.
The competition is open to sec-
ond- and third-year University law
While it may seem intimidating

for law students to try their hands
at arguing cases in front of a justice,
Cooper said he does not expect stu-
dents to be more nervous than in
previous years.
"I think there will be a little bit
of extra excitement and anxiety, but
the judges are always very distin-
guished and able. In a way, I think it
will be more fun for the students to
argue in front of such a strong
court," he said.
However, some participants in
the contest said that the presence of
Justice Scalia has altered the atmo-
sphere of the competition.

Third-year law student Michael
Warren said, "The competition will
be stiffer earlier on in the contest
because Justice Scalia is only judg-
ing the finals. Some people joined
just because he is going to be here."
Warren added that Scalia is held
in very high esteem among in the
law school students.
"The general feeling at the law
school is that Scalia is the brightest,
most intellectually honest justice
on the court. It's quite a motivating0
factor to do particularly well. We
think of him as the God head of le-
gal analysis," he said.

It is not enough to have a good mind,
but most important is to apply it well.

chair of the Research Policy
Commission, a research oversight
board which reports directly to the
Vice President for Research.
"I think that probably my major
qualification is the amount of time
that I've spent on the faculty, the
fact that I've spent 21 years here
now and I have a strong basic expe-
rience in faculty administration of
different types.
"The second (qualification) that



is not that obvious is ... that the
word research means scholarship in
all different areas that faculty are
involved in. Although I'm one per-
son and I have a specific background
in one specific position, I feel that I
have commitment to all research ar-
eas - including those in non-funded
research. That doesn't make me dif-
ferent from the people who came
before me, but I want to emphasize
that," Newman said.
Newman's own research in neu-
ral and atomical studies and behav-
ioral psychology has made one of
her major goals encouraging multi-
disciplinary research.
"The University traditionally
has in my view... fostered interdis-
ciplinary research in a wide variety
of ways. For example, it used to be
that multidisciplinary research
might be the result of the integra-
tio-j of programs in closely-related
fields such as biology and
"But the kind of multidisci-
plinary programs that we are now
fostering... bring together people
from schools and colleges that may
never have interacted before,"
Newman said.
Newman's recent research, which
centers on the hearing and chemical
senses program, has been funded by
an extended grant - the Jacob
Javits Neuroscience Investigator
In addition to her vice presiden-
tial post, Newman spends Tuesdays
and Thursdays at the medical school
continuing her research.
And, in addition to her hours of
hard work in the laboratory,
Newman's work was complicated
by a personal tragedy.

This question was voted on in
case the contract was not ratified.
"It also shows solidarity within
the union," said Alan Zundel, a bar-
gainer for GEO.
"Without the support of our
members we are screwed, we have no
recourse," said a GEO member who
wished to remain anonymous.
Oko showed no surprise at the
outcome of this vote. "It's very
early in the semester, and people are
concerned about the effect it would
have on their students if there was a

'If I had to put any one element on her it
would be that she is simply a wonderful
person. Anyone who dislikes Sarah Newman
simply has something wrong with them'
- William Kelly
Vice President for Research

While doing much of her re-
search, Newman nursed a husband
sick with amyotrophic lateral scle-
rosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's dis-
ease. ALS is a debilitating disease
that strikes the nervous system, ul-
timately leaving the body unable to
function normally. There is no
known cure.
"This line of research was work
that I started when I came to the
University in 1970. My husband,
who I married in 1981, had ALS,"
Newman said.
"But at the time, it seemed that
the best use of my knowledge and

that I personally have been a victim
of sex discrimination here at the
University. I feel that I have had
tremendous opportunities to ad-
vance my career," Newman said.
"But the fact speaks for itself
that we don't have as many women
in high administrative posts as
would be appropriate to reflect the
number of women in the faculty. I
personally am anxious to help this
office pay attention to the opportu-
nities for women to move into lead-
ership roles."
Rather than engaging in active
protest, Newman said she has tried

my expertise was with research on
the system that I had worked on
previously, rather than redirecting
my research toward ALS. Another
factor in that decision was that at
the time, my energies were very lim-
ited, because I was taking care of
him at home during the time that he
was ill.
"My research efforts recently
have included how hormones influ-
ence nerve cells, so I feel like I am
contributing to the broad area of
treating ALS," she added.
Although Newman said that she
never has felt discriminated against
by the University, she believes a
problem exists in the low propor-
tion of women occupying high posts
in the administration.
"Personally, I think that it's re-
ally fair to say that I have never felt

to set an example for other women.
"I don't claim that I have been a
member of the various organiza-
tions, but I have chosen instead to
act as a role model. I have devoted
the time and energy I had to being a
role model to women medical stu-
dents and predoctoral students,"
Newman said.
In addition to the confidence
with which she tackles her work,
Newman is rather soft-spoken and
quite friendly.
Kelly made it clear that
Newman has more to offer than just
intelligence and experience.
"If I had to put any one element
on her it would be that she is simply@
a wonderful person. Anyone who
dislikes Sarah Newman simply has
something wrong with them," he
