A Glimpse Back In Time: 1925 Commencement Speech

As valedictorian of the Southwestern Class of 1925, Ivan Miller described commencement as a bittersweet moment, and exploded the myth of the strict and demanding law professors of that era, exclaiming, “No one occupies a higher place in our regard or a more lasting niche in our memory than the professors who worked so unselfishly to prepare us for our chosen profession.” Miller, a former telegraph operator for the railroad, went on to a successful career in the law and civic leadership, including a key role in the development of Playa del Rey and Marina del Rey, where a ballpark is named in his honor.

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.
