UM Carey Law Announces New Faculty

On July 1, UM Carey Law will welcome three new faculty members to full-time appointments.

The new faculty will strengthen the law school’s scholarship in technology, health, and immigration law – some of the fastest growing practice areas in the legal profession – in addition to its nationally ranked program in clinical law.

James Grimmelmann, Professor of Law
BA, Summa Cum Laude, Harvard University
JD, Yale University

Professor Grimmelmann joins UM Carey Law from New York Law School, where he was a member of its Institute for Information Law & Policy. After earning an A.B. in computer science from Harvard College, Grimmelmann worked as a programmer for Microsoft. His scholarship focuses on how the law governing the creation and use of computer software affects individual freedom and the distribution of wealth and power in society.  He is particularly interested in facilitating professional communications between lawyers and technologists.

Professor Pasquale comes to Maryland Carey Law from Seton Hall School of Law.  His research focuses on the effects of rapidly changing technology on information law, particularly in the health care, internet, and finance industries. He has published over 20 scholarly articles, and is currently writing The Black Box Society: Technologies of Search, Reputation, and Finance to be published by Harvard University Press. [Read more]

Maureen Sweeney, Law School Associate Professor
BA, Wesleyan University
JD, Yale University


Professor Sweeney has directed the Immigration Clinic at the School of Law since 2004. She has studied and worked with clients on the immigration consequences of criminal convictions, trying to ensure that defendants understand those consequences before they agree to accept a plea that could affect their immigration status, and that those consequences bear some relation to justice. Prior to coming to the law school, Sweeney served as a staff attorney at Associated Catholic Charities Immigration Legal Services in Baltimore. She also worked for the Migrant Legal Action Program in Washington, DC; Farmworker Legal Services of North Carolina in Raleigh, NC; and the Texas Center for Immigrant Legal Assistance in Houston, Texas.
