Regis Campfield who was on our faculty long ago, before moving to SMU Law School in 1977. Regis was a nationally known expert in trusts and estates and in particular estate & gift taxation. He was the founder of the Notre Dame Tax and Estate Planning Institute, an annual mega-CLE program, which he operated as a family project, with his dear wife Mary and various children drafted to work on everything from mailing lists to welcoming attendees. While Regis turned over the reins of the Institute to the Law School the year I became Dean, he always remained interested in the Law School and I enjoyed a close relationship with Regis and Mary in the ensuing years. The Tax and Estate Planning Institute continues under the watchful eye of Mike Kirsch and the direction of Jerry Hesch of the University of Miami. The 43d annual Institute was just held last week. Regis and Mary also created a generous fellowship fund at the Law School and generations of students will benefit from this gift.

One of our most cherished alumni, Judge Tom O’Toole, passed away on October 13, 2016.
A member of the NDLS Advisory Council since 2011, Tom and his wife Elaine generously endowed the O’Toole Professorship of Constitutional Law, a chair now held by Professor A.J. Bellia. Tom’s generosity went beyond financial support to include the kind of advice and wise counsel that are so important to the functioning of a great law school.
