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.

Should employers be banned from asking job applicants if they have been convicted of a crime? Professor Gowri Ramachandran explained to KPCC’s Erika Aguilar that employers should justify how past convictions relate to an applicant’s ability to perform the job safety and effectively in a segment on “‘Ban the Box’: LA mulls law to bar employers from asking about criminal past.”

Adjunct Professor Miriam Krinsky was quoted about the contingent of new officials Los Angeles County will have by the end of this year in today’s LA Daily News article reporting the recently announced retirement of LA County CEO William Fujioka (“L.A. County CEO William Fujioka retires”).

Residences Earn Accolades

Southwestern's Residences at 7th Earn Accolades from Residents and Recognition for Design and Sustainability

By the conclusion of the first academic year of use, it was clear that The Residences at 7th, Southwestern's new on-campus student residential complex, had fulfilled the goal of transforming the campus into a real living-learning village. Since The Residences opened in August, the students who have made their homes there, as well as other members of the Southwestern community, have enjoyed the spacious and inviting facilities that enhance the campus experience on both a practical and aesthetic level.

 In addition to the accolades from residents and visitors, the project has been recognized for distinction in sustainability and architectural design. At the 2014 Los Angeles Architectural Awards hosted by the Los Angeles Business Council in June, Southwestern received the L.A. County Sustainability Award in recognition of The Residences' design excellence and community impact. Back in December 2013, the complex earned LEED certification at the Platinum Level from the U.S. Green Building Council.
