OU Law and OCDLA Host Reception Honoring Cindy Foley

May 1, 2012 | By Tim Laughlin, OCDLA President 2012

The University of Oklahoma College of Law and the Oklahoma Criminal Defense Lawyers Association invite you to attend a reception honoring Cindy Foley and the presentation of a replica Lord Erskine trophy to the College of Law Legal Clinic on Tuesday, May 8, 2012, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Sneed Lounge. Please join the University of Oklahoma College of Law and the Oklahoma Criminal Defense Lawyers Association as we commemorate the awarding of the OCDLA's 2010 Lord Erskine to Cindy Foley.

Cindy passed away on August 10, 2010. Upon her passing, Cindy's friends and family reflected upon her life and career as a criminal defense lawyer and mentor to law students who participated in the University of Oklahoma's Criminal Defense Clinic. Cindy was an amazing criminal defense lawyer in her own right and an inspiring mentor to many of our colleagues who are now criminal defense lawyers, prosecutors and judges.

On Tuesday, May 8, 2012 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. we will meet at the University of Oklahoma Law School in the Sneed Lounge to dedicate a replica of Cindy's Lord Erskine Award to be placed on display at the Law School. Food and drink will be provided. Please take a little time on May 8 and raise a glass with us in celebration of the life and legacy of one our most inspiring members.

OU Law Conversations: Dean Emeritus Andrew Coats

What led you to OU Law? I have wanted to go to law school since I was a teenager. I was active in speech contests and enjoyed making oral presentations. When I was in high school, I would go downtown and watch some of the trials at the courthouse, so, I got acquainted with the courtroom rather early. I obtained a Navy scholarship to go to OU. I was a regular Navy midshipman then I served three years in the far east before coming back to law school. I wanted to attend law school and came back to OU.

OU Law Conversations: Robert Barnes

What led you to OU Law? OU Law has been part of my family since the 1920s. My great uncle was Dr. Maurice Merrill, a 1922 graduate of OU Law who then earned a Doctorate in Law from Harvard University in 1925. Merrill taught at OU Law for 30 years, published numerous seminal works in oil and gas law, constitutional law, administrative law and the law of Notice. While still in his twenties, Merrill published the seminal treatise Implied Covenants in Oil and Gas Law, which has been a cornerstone of my cases. In law school, I lived with Uncle Maurice and marveled at his longhand scrawl which was literally final copy in its first draft form. In my mind, he will always be ten times the lawyer that I ever became.
