Kate Christensen, Associate Director, Center for Health and Homeland Security

The (Baltimore) Examiner – Maryland state agencies responded Thursday to the first federal Code Red alert since Sept. 11, 2001. Red is the highest threat level, and it was only in effect Thursday for commercial flights between the United Kingdom and the U. S., said Kathryn Christensen, JD, associate director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security at the School of Law. "We carry a high regard for the United Kingdom counterterrorism work they’ve been doing since July 2005. The U.S. cooperation with the U.K. has been extensive. That lends credibility and reason for us to raise the alert level to red," she said.

Professor Michael Greenberger

In a wide variety of live and taped interviews on August 10 and August 11, Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, discussed how a bomb plot aimed at U.S. airplanes subverted in Great Britain Thursday, has dramatized the ongoing terrorist threat to airlines and quickly changed what Americans can carry on board. Greenberger said air travel is markedly safer since the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, but that improvements still can be made. "The fact that we had no countermeasures in place for liquid explosives is evidence that we still have a high level of vulnerabilities on this front," he said.

The Daily Record – Starting Sept. 1, property manager Centrum Management, LLC, will ban new residents from smoking in its 49 buildings, 10 of which are in Maryland. "The most common complaint that we receive at the center is from a tenant dealing with smoke drifting in from an adjacent apartment," said Kathleen Dachille, JD, assistant professor at the School of Law and director of the Legal Resource Center for Tobacco Regulation, Litigation and Advocacy. "What Centrum is doing is the height of what we’re looking for."

Adjunct Professor Maureen Rowland

The Daily Record – Due to a change in state law, nearly four dozen inmates sentenced under Maryland’s ‘three strikes’ law have a brief opportunity in which to seek the possibility of parole. Maureen Rowland, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, who has been working with 13 students at the School of Law on the cases, said they have really gotten into the work. "It is fascinating because in the very beginning, I wouldn’t say they were reluctant, but I don’t think they appreciated what they were really going to be doing," Rowland said. "I think they just thought it was kind of an exercise."
