On Monday, June 13 the University of Denver Sturm College of Law challenged defending champ Colorado Law in the third annual Battle of the Barrister’s Boot.  Proceeds from the good-spirited golf tournament support scholarships at the law schools.  Some 84 golfers, including CU alumni Ed Perlmutter ‘78 and Colorado Attorney General John Suthers ‘79, turned out at Pinehurst Country Club in Denver for a perfect day of golf.  We are pleased to report that defender CU retained the Barrister’s Boot for the third year running, thanks to the low scores of the winning team, Tim Scully ’96, Greg Leibold ’96, Evan Husney ’96, and Chris Bowery, playing for Merchant & Gould.In thanking this year’s players and sponsors after the tournament, Kirsten Dueck, CU Law’s Director of Alumni Relations and Communications, said, “Those of you who are University of Colorado Alumni recently received a letter from Dean Getches detailing the many successes of the Law School this year.  He ended by saying, ‘Our reason for doing all that we do is our students.  Not a week goes by without our multi-talented students achieving new honors.’  Today I extend our special thanks to you, the CU alumni, for reciprocating that commitment by your participation in this event to raise scholarship funds for a new generation of students following in your footsteps.” The University of Colorado School of Law extends special thanks to the sponsors of the 2005 Battle for the Barrister’s Boot: Berenbaum Weinshienk & Eason; Merchant & Gould; Lindquist & Vennum; Montgomery Little & McGrew; Ritsema & Lyon; Wheeler Trigg & Kennedy; Perkins Coie; Marya Brancio at Special Counsel; Colin Kresock at RR Donnelly; Richard A.
