Professor Michael Greenberger

Law.com – Now that President Bush has nominated Michael Mukasey to succeed Alberto Gonzales as attorney general, the question is how much influence the retired federal judge will wield in filling the unusually high number of vacancies at the Department of Justice. "If Mukasey is confirmed, he will have substantial input," says Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor in the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security who served in the associate attorney general’s office under Attorney General Janet Reno. "Mukasey has been brought in there to clean up the Department of Justice. He has a chance to completely remake the department right now."

Professor Jana Singer

Washington Blade – The Maryland Court of Appeals has rejected same-sex marriage in a 4-3 ruling and upheld the state’s statute defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman. Jana Singer, JD, a professor at the School of Law who was among the 58 professors from the University of Maryland and the University of Baltimore law schools who filed friend-of-the-court briefs supporting the plaintiffs, said the decision represented "a step backward" for the court. "It seems in many ways to have taken a step backward in its interpretation of the Maryland Declaration of Rights," she said, "and the protections it had affirmed for individuals under the Maryland Constitution."

Professor Lawrence Sung

The Gazette – The patent process is a lot more costly and time-consuming than many people might imagine, said Lawrence Sung, JD, PhD, professor and director of the Intellectual Property Law Program at the School of Law. Most people probably expect it to take a year or so to get a patent application granted, but it can take three to five years assuming things go well, he said. ‘‘If a patent is poorly drafted, then it may provide almost no protection for you at all," Sung said.

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

Chronicle for Higher Education – In a column about academic blogs, School of Law professor Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, was noted for her comments at BlackProf.com that she has been feeling grim this month since a noose was left hanging near the office of the black faculty and staff association at the University of Maryland, College Park campus. But Ifill writes that she has been comforted by attending a commemoration at Brooklyn’s St. Paul Community Baptist Church, which focuses on the crimes of the Atlantic slave trade. The column notes "Earlier this year, Ifill published a book about the history of lynching in the United States, and the prospects for healing its wounds by using tribunals modeled after the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission. And yesterday she published a related essay in Baltimore’s Sun."
