Chair in public service law to recognize Klaus' legacy


In recognition of leading legal luminary William R. Klaus' legacy, Community Legal Services, Inc. (CLS) has set up "William R. Klaus, Esq., Chair in Public Service Law." Klaus was one of the first to advocate legal services for the poor in Philadelphia as well the rest of the country.

The Chair, the first of its kind at CLS, will memorialize Klaus' dedication and initiative in assisting low income residents of Philadelphia with legal services. It will be awarded to an upcoming attorney sincerely committed to public interest law. The nominees must not have worked in public interest practice at CLS for more than 10 years.

Klaus, a chairman emeritus of Pepper Hamilton, LLP, played a key role in the formation of CLS. He was the first to chair the CLS board, and remained in that position for 22 years. Klaus died in 2005. Pepper Hamilton, LLP and CLS have joined their hands to raise $350,000 to endow the Chair. During the initial two-year period, Pepper Hamilton will donate $50,000 for the purpose.

BIZARRE NEWS

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder
Riggs finally made it. He was crowned the Most Beautiful Bulldog 2007 at the "Beautiful Bulldog" annual contest held to kick off the Drake Relays athletics competition. Riggs, a drooling pooch with teeth sticking out of his mouth, beat out 50 other dogs to win a crown, a throne, and a bone. The beauty king's best pastimes include begging and assaulting noisy appliances. Cordell Miller is the proud owner of the three-year-old male bulldog. As Riggs clumped down his path, Hannah, the last year's winner reportedly gave him a snarl. However, the smart dog kept his cool, and gracefully continued his walk. The contest included pooches in colorful and amazing costumes. Drake University in Iowa holds the bulldog as its wrinkled mascot. This year's 98th annual Drake Relays is expected to attract 8,000 athletes this year. It is one of the nation's oldest and most esteemed track and field events.
