– Longtime securities regulator Paul Atkins is under serious consideration to lead the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, (CFTC) according to two people briefed on the process. Atkins, a former corporate lawyer and accounting firm partner, has served as one of five members of the Security and Exchange Commission since 2002. His SEC term expires next year. Michael Greenberger, JD, a former CFTC official in the Clinton administration, the director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security and a professor in the School of Law, said it was "terribly important for someone experienced to be at the helm" at a time when market analysts increasingly warn that bad bets on derivatives could lead to a market meltdown.

– Paul Atkins, the senior Republican on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, is a finalist to lead the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), said two people with knowledge of the matter. "He may face some hard questioning about his attitudes toward fraud and manipulation in these markets and how aggressive he will be," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland and the former head of trading and markets at the CFTC.

- Two lynchings, in 1931 and 1933, were the last recorded in Maryland, and it’s unclear whether any witnesses to the events are still alive. But those events and other incidents of racial violence in the Jim Crow era on the Eastern Shore still affect the region, School of Law professor Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, argues in her book, On The Courthouse Lawn. "The wounds of white supremacy," Ifill writes, "still stand open and untreated."

– The trial plays out with no fanfare. Yet there has never been a U.S. criminal defendant quite like suspected Al-Qaida operative Jose Padilla, the U.S. citizen on trial for allegedly joining a support cell for Islamic extremists. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security and a former Justice Department official, said Padilla is a symbol of the Bush administration’s "circumventing of normal constitutional processes in the name of fighting terror. I think it is going to be a moral lesson in not trying to take shortcuts in trying to vindicate the war on terror," said Greenberger.

– Running a law school is a lot like running a business, says Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, MPA, the Marjorie Cook Professor of Law and dean of the School of Law. ‘‘As you can imagine, you have all these different constituencies you have to be attentive to. And you have the public interest, too," said Rothenberg, who is one of five recent inductees into the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame. ‘‘Dean Rothenberg is a tour de force in American legal scholarship and education," said David J. Ramsay, DM, DPhil, president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
