Timothy J. Kennedy Memorial Moot Court Fund Established at the Law School
Today the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis, together with Mike Miller, John Muller and Tilden Mendelson, founding partners of Montross, Miller, Muller, Mendelson & Kennedy, LLP, announced the establishment of the Timothy J. Kennedy Memorial Moot Court Fund. The endowed fund is being created with a $50,000 gift to the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis to honor Kennedy’s contributions to the practice of law and in support of the newly-created National Professional Responsibility Moot Court Competition, which will be organized and hosted by the school for the first time on March 9-10, 2012.
Dean Gary R. Roberts, Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis, says, “We are very proud that Montross, Miller, Muller, Mendelson & Kennedy has decided to continue Mr. Kennedy’s legacy by supporting the law school’s first national moot court competition, on professional responsibility, in Kennedy’s name. ‘Here we advocate with integrity’ is not just a slogan at our school. It is a cornerstone of our mission to produce ethical members of the legal profession. This gift will further that cause for many years to come. And because this competition is a national event, the impact will reach very far.”
Mike Miller, ‘75 said of the late Tim Kennedy, “Tim was not only our partner for more than 30 years, but was a colleague and friend.”
“Tim was an active volunteer in moot court and trial advocacy programs at the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis,” said John Muller.
“For over twenty years Tim chaired one of the Indianapolis Bar Association’s grievance committees, quietly working to preserve the integrity of the legal profession. We could not think of a better way to honor Tim than with a gift which will support a national moot court competition involving cutting edge professional responsibility concerns,” added Tilden Mendelson.
Kennedy was a founding partner of the firm and practiced in the areas of medical malpractice and personal injury. He also found time to give back to law students and fellow lawyers by volunteering at the law school.
