Adjunct Professor Dan Friedman

Washington Blade – Nine same-sex couples are expected to be present in an Annapolis courtroom Monday, when Maryland’s highest court hears arguments over whether the state constitution allows the couples to cement their relationships through marriage. "This court is not ideologically driven," said Dan Friedman, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law. "It is difficult to predict how they will rule on this case. It’s a wild card issue."

Professor Susan Leviton

The Baltimore Sun – Just days before Maryland’s highest court hears arguments concerning gay marriage, a group of sociologists, psychologists, and child-welfare advocates spoke out yesterday in support of the issue. "The state shouldn’t treat committed couples as legal strangers, especially when you’re raising children," said Susan Leviton, JD, professor at the School of Law and founder of Advocates for Children and Youth.

Professor Doug Colbert

The Washington Post – A class-action lawsuit filed recently challenges Maryland’s long-standing practice of denying defendants the right to counsel when they first appear before a District Court commissioner in which bail, if any, is initially set. "You have a judicial hearing where no one knows what has taken place," said Douglas Colbert, JD, professor at the School of Law, whose clinic students are working on the case.

Professor Dave Bogen

The Daily Record – Bill Sleeman, AMLS, MA, assistant director for Technical Services at the Thurgood Marshall Law Library at the School of Law, and David Bogen, LLM, LLB, professor emeritus at the School of Law, have created a tour of Baltimore’s legal history that can be taken online or on foot. "We wanted enough sites that it would cover the span of legal history in Maryland," said Sleeman. "We wanted some from the federal period. We wanted some that would cover the civil rights movement something that would run the gamut of things that took place in Baltimore."

The Daily Record – The Westminster Preservation Trust has completed a new $200,000 historic exhibit at the Westminster Hall and Burying Ground, explaining the links between it and the School of Law, as well as the background of other prominent Baltimoreans buried there.

The exhibit will be officially recognized at a reception next month, said Mary Jo Rodney, director of special events at the School.
