Professor Michael Greenberger

The Washington Post Ė Democratic leaders preparing to take control of Congress have vowed to push through a host of reforms recommended two years ago by the 9/11 commission, such as better port security and improved radio communications for first responders. "Itís easy to say theyíll implement the 9/11 recommendations. But some of the recommendations have not been implemented because theyíve been so hard to swallow," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "It remains to be seen if the Democrats have an answer to that."

School of Law Trial Team

The Baltimore Sun Ė The National Trial Team at the School of Law won the National Institute for Trial Advocacyís 17th annual Tournament of Champions late last month. Talking about their success this week, students credit dedicated coaches, hours of late-night preparation, and their diverse backgrounds for an unexpected win. "I just have a lot of practical, hands-on experience that most people donít get until they graduate," said Jessica Butkera, third-year student. "I think itís in the performance. Itís about connecting with the audience," said Sig Libowitz, third-year student. "You just donít walk into court without a lot of preparation," said third-year student Jason Downs. Jerome Deise, JD, professor at the School of Law and the teamís coach, said the training is not designed to make a group of lawyers who think and act exactly alike. "My goals are to try to create in each student the very best lawyer each student can be," he added.

Professor Steve Schwinn

The Daily Record Ė The U.S. Supreme Court has once again delved into the morally and legally contentious issue of abortion rights, writes Steven Schwinn, JD, associate professor at the School of Law. "While these cases putatively deal with a womanís right to seek an abortion, another, equally significant issue is at stake: Congressís power to define fundamental rights. The court should seize this opportunity and overturn Congressís sloppy and short-sighted attempt to politically manipulate fundamental rights."

Adjunct Professor Dan Friedman

The Daily Record Ė During the recent elections, Maryland voters said "yes" to an amendment of Section 22 of Article IV of the Maryland Constitution. The amendment provides a direct appeal to the Court of Special Appeals following in banc review of a circuit court decision as long as the appellant was not the one who sought in banc review in the first place. Dan Friedman, JD, an adjunct professor at the School of Law, notes that the amendment reverses the Court of Appeals 2005 decision in which the top court determined that the only appeal route from an en banc decision is to the stateís highest court.
