Professor Steve Schwinn

The Daily Record "Initial bail hearings violate some of the most fundamental principles of transparency, equality and fairness in our justice system," writes Steven Schwinn, JD, associate professor at the School of Law. "Anyone would find this process intolerable. While a right to counsel at bail hearings will not solve all these problems, it will mark an important step in the direction of some of those fundamental principles of our justice system: transparency, equality and fairness."

Professor Doug Colbert

The Annapolis Capital Maryland is violating the rights of the poor by failing to provide them with taxpayer-funded lawyers at bail hearings, according to a class action lawsuit filed this week. "When we have a system like the one in Baltimore City, it calls out for immediate change," said Douglas Colbert, JD, professor at the School of Law, whose clinic students are working on the case. One of those students, Alex Thompson, shared his story of being arrested last Halloween in Fells Point. "My counsel, while I was in jail, came from my co-prisoners, and their counsel came from their own past experiences," said Thompson.

Professor Michael Greenberger

WTTG-TV, Ch. 5 It was discovered that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has lost nationwide more than 2,000 of its uniforms and badges. Local airports have lost 18 uniforms and badges. TSA says this is not a problem because other airport security measures would counter any attempt to use the uniforms. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor in the School of Law and director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security disagrees, saying that if these uniforms ended up in the wrong hands, it could create havoc at an airport similar to the problems experienced in Iraq. where insurgents are using Iraqi police and American military uniforms to carry off mass kidnappings.
