Giving Back & Planning for the Future - Anna Tarasyuk '10

align='left'

As a Nickel Club Public Affairs Committee member, I am always keeping an eye out for a good opportunity to help the public. Recently, I started working with Bet Tzedek’s pro bono Advance Planning Clinic, helping low-income individuals prepare statutory wills and health care directives. 

As part of my own practice, I always emphasize the importance of planning, and especially the importance of having the essentials, among which is a health care directive. Advance life planning is, unfortunately, an issue that tends to get brushed aside, often with devastating results. If ignored, planning can become a drawn-out nightmare, one that leaves families fighting; adding to the already-mounting stress of dealing with the death or incapacity of a loved one. The individuals that come to the Advance Planning Clinic often do not have the necessary resources to devote to advance life planning, and therefore frequently resort to a default ‘no planning’, or at best, improvised planning, which can be disastrous. Through the Advance Planning Clinic, eligible clients have the opportunity to meet with volunteer attorneys who draft the documents on their behalf.

Faculty in the Media 7/28/14

Fortune Magazine’s Chris Matthews discusses CEO pay in the article "Your boss is way better than you at getting a raise." He includes references to and quotes from Professor Michael Dorff’s new book and the argument that increases in CEO compensation have far outstripped what executives actually produce for their firms and society at large.

In his guest column for The Hollywood Reporter titled, "James Garner: A Lawyer Reflects on the Actor's Legal Legacy," Adjunct Professor Neville Johnson '75 explains how the late James Garner wasn't afraid to fight for his share of success - and his legacy will live on in film and in the lawbooks. Look for it in the August 1 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

Antitrust expert Professor Warren Grimes’ article, "Minus the TV Subsidy, Whither College Sports?" examines the current cable broadcast delivery system from the viewer, broadcaster and content providers' perspectives. Specifically for TheBootleg.com - a site dedicated to Stanford sports - he also ponders the future of sports on television, and how the ongoing cable TV programming battle will affect Pac-12 sports, athletes and fans.
