Enter Perry Mason: The case of the law school dean and the famous actor
November 2015
Fascinating read about how Earl Stanley Gardner, who penned the Perry Mason mysteries, Raymond Burr, the actor who played Mason in the TV series, and Gordon Schaber, former McGeorge dean, intersected in 1960. Gardner agreed to deliver the law school's commencement address that year but fell ill with appendicitis and offered Raymond Burr as a substitute. Burr delivered the commencement address outdoors in Old Sacramento. Harriet Zook, librarian at McGeorge, is quoted about the Burr collection at McGeorge, which includes Burr's personal Perry Mason scripts.

KCRA
Proposed California law would allow ballot selfies at polling place
Nov. 3, 2015
Clark Kelso, professor of law, said assessing the benefits of ballot selfies requires balancing Constitutional rights: maintaining voter secrecy versus freedom of speech.
"I think the Constitutional right of free expression, free speech, which lets me tell the world who I voted for - I think that will win out if this issue were put before a court," Kelso said.
