UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL
Entrepreneur
law program
to encourage
collaboration

Zell program
to debut next
semester
By PAIGE PEARCY
Daily StaffReporter
Law' School students cur-
rently have the opportunity to
prove accused people innocent,
work on environmental issues
and starting next semester,
they'll have a chance to col-
laborate with aspiring entre-
preneurs.
Through the University's
newest clinical law program,
the Zell Entrepreneurship and
Law Program, Law School
students will gain practical
experience in entrepreneurial
law, and student entrepreneurs
will have free access to other-
wise expensive legal advice.
The program is named after
and funded by Sam Zell, a Law
School alum who donated $5
million to help start the pro-
gram.
Law School Dean Evan
Caminker said he was
approached last fall by alumni
who saw a need for an entre-
e preneurship program at the
school. The program has since
been in development and is the

Law School's 12th clinic. Other
Law School clinics include the
Michigan Innocence Clinic, the
Child Advocacy Clinic and the
Environmental Law Clinic.
Caminker said the ZEAL
program is unique because
it caters to students who are
already involved in entrepre-
neurship at the University. He
added that the ZEAL program
will give field experience to
Law School students, since they
will aid student entrepreneurs
with their legal transactions.
"We believe that we will be
the first program which servic-
es entirely a student entrepre-
neurship clientele," Caminker
said.
After graduating from the
University, Zell founded Equity
Group Investments, an invest-
ment company headquartered
in Chicago. Zell also owns the
Tribune Company and helped
launch the Samuel Zell & Rob-
ert H. Lurie Institute for Entre-
preneurial Studies in the Ross
School of Business about 11
years ago.
Zell said in an interview with
The Michigan Daily that based
on his past experience start-
ing the Zell Lurie Institute, he
thinks the ZEAL program will
be successful. He added that

By PAIGE PEARCY
Daily StaffReporter
University President Mary
Sue Coleman told University
students yesterday morning that
they are goingto be living, seeing
and breathing a lot more green in
the next 14 years.

Speakinginthe Hatcher Grad-
uate Library's Gallery Room,
Coleman introduced an ambi-
tious new set of sustainabil-
ity goals that the University will
start working toward this year
and are projected to be complet-
ed by 2025, including changes to
the University's transportation,
emissions and academic offer-
ings.
Coleman announced a $14 mil-
lion investment the University is
making for several sustainability
projects including one that will

fund new hybrid cars and buses
- making one in six University
buses a hybrid. The seven new
hybrid buses are expected to
arrive in December.
The University will also part-
ner with DTE Energy to install
solar panel fields on North Cam-
pus. Additionally, the new Weis-
feld Family Golf Center, which is
scheduled to open this fall, will
be heated with geothermal tech-
nology, Coleman said. When the
Weisfeld Center opens on South
Campus, it will be the first build-

ing at the University to use the
technology.
Coleman also announced that
the College of Literature Science,
and the Arts will offer a new
academic minor in sustainabil-
ity through its Program in the
Environment. The minor will be
available to all LSA undergradu-
ates.
"I want the message to be
clear: Sustainability defines the
University of Michigan," Cole-
man said. "Combine maize and

IN MEMORY
Fleming remembered
by 'U' Marching Band

Trumpet player
Patrick Fleming
died Monday ,
in car accident
By BETHANY BIRON
Daily News Editor
Members of the Michigan
Marching Band were gathered
in Revelli Hall before practice

on Monday when they received
the sad news that their friend
and bandmate, Patrick Flem-
ing, had died in a car accident
that morning. Instead of stop-
ping the practice, most of the
band members came together
and continued playing, knowing
that the effervescent Fleming
wouldn't have wanted them to
stop the music.
Fleming, a sophomore at the
University's Flint campus and a
graduate of Pioneer High School,

was commuting to school from
his home in Ypsilanti on Monday
morning when he encountered
sudden traffic while driving in
a construction zone. His 1994
Oldsmobile Bravada crashed into
the vehicle in front of him, police
told the Flint Journal. Fleming
was traveling northbound on
US-23 near Fenton, Mich.
A second-year member of the
trumpet section in the Michigan
Marching Band, Fleming was

recent assaults
By SABIRA KHAN
Daily StaffReporter
The ongoing pertinent topic
in the University community
- student safety - was on the
Michigan Student Assembly's
agenda last night.

At the student government
meeting in MSA Chambers,
Greg O'Dell, chief of the Uni-
versity's Department of Public
Safety, addressed the assaults
that occurred near campus dur-
ing the summer and have per-
sisted into the fall semester.
O'Dell, who began his posi-
tion as University police chief
at the end of August, began
his presentation by explaining
the department's jurisdiction,
which includes all property

owned or leased by the Univer-
sity. However, O'Dell said DPS
and the Ann Arbor Police
Department work closely, and
when individuals dial 9-1-1they
will be connected to the appro-
priate department.
O'Dell specifically addressed
the six assault cases that
occurred between July 15 and
July 26 - four of which were
sexual assaults. He added that
