Friday, November 16, 2007Adjunct Professor Dan FriedmanThe Daily Record
– In what it deemed "considered dicta," the Maryland Court of Appeals clarified whether limited pretrial discovery was allowed in district court in a breach of lease action. "As a matter of constitutional law there is no prohibition against rendering advisory opinions and Rule 8-131 seems to even encourage the practice," said Dan Friedman, JD, special counsel at Saul Ewing and an adjunct professor at the School of Law. "If the answer is clear and the court can save parties’ litigation, and can save itself a subsequent appeal, that is an efficient way of doing business."

– Strip away the brand-name products and gossipy inside Hollywood milieu of the writers’ strike, and what you have is a question of fair compensation and just treatment of labor. "Business ethics is the arena where the ethereal transcendent teachings of holiness and spirituality confront the often grubby business of making money and being engaged in the rat race that often comprises the marketplace," writes Rabbi Yitzchok (Irving) Breitowitz, JD, an associate professor at the School of Law. "It is the acid test of whether religion is truly relevant or religion is simply relegated to an isolated sphere of human activity. It is business ethics, one could posit, above all, which shows God co-exists in the world rather than God and godliness being separate and apart.

– Because of the young age of the Jena noose-hangers and many of those who deface Jewish temples and graves, some religious and civil rights leaders say a stronger education in U.S. and world history may be part of the answer. "Many white people are unaware of the incredible power of the lynching story for African Americans," Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former civil rights attorney, told the San Francisco Chronicle
Tuesday, November 13, 2007Professor Taunya BanksThe Daily Record
– An adjunct professor at the Georgetown University Law Center is teaching a class this spring called "The Law of ‘24,’" which discusses legal issues of counterterrorism raised in the show’s plot. Taunya Lovell Banks, JD, professor at the School of Law, said "no one looked at me twice" when she proposed the Law in Film class seven years ago, a seminar course that explores the function of law in society by examining legal decisions, statutes, and legal commentaries in the context of films. Banks said the School will be hosting a symposium in February about the portrayal of the criminal justice system in documentaries. Robert Percival, JD, MA, professor at the School and director of the Environmental Law Program, approaches the concept from the other side: he turns his environmental law students into filmmakers. Each year some of his students form groups and make a short documentary film about an environmental issue of their choosing.
