Professor Robert Percival

The Daily Record – Environmental groups increasingly are enlisting clinical law school programs in their confrontations with government and industry. One such program at the School of Law has achieved enough of a track record that its officials now want to share its techniques abroad. The School will mark the 20th anniversary of its environmental law program and clinic by hosting a conference, opening today, to offer guidance and stimulate cooperation among law schools around the world. "There is already a good network of global environmental law professors, but they’re not devoted to clinical law%85," said Robert Percival, JD, MA, professor at the School and the program’s director. The clinic serves to train the next generation of environmental lawyers but also provides legal help to environmental advocacy groups. Most of these groups can’t afford in-house legal counsel, said Rena Steinzor, JD, professor at the School and director of the Environmental Law Clinic.

Professor Michael Greenberger

The Chicago Tribune (published in 12 newspapers and 15 Web sites) - Some of New York’s biggest investment banks would like to make sure top-ranked Chicago becomes the Second City when it comes to exchange-traded derivatives, say experts who have followed the bidding for the Chicago Board of Trade. "This is hand-to-hand combat, Chicago versus New York," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former director of trading and markets for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. "It’s a massive power play by New York and global banks against the Chicago futures infrastructure."

Adjunct Professor Judge Paul Grimm

The Daily Record – Under the guidance of Magistrate Judge Paul Grimm, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, has published a Suggested Protocol for Discovery of Electronically Stored Information (ESI). The protocol, like Judge Grimm’s opinion in Hopson v. Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, is already gaining attention across the nation and, like Hopson, is likely to further shape the development of the law relating to the discovery of ESI.

Adjunct Professor Dan Friedman

The Washington Blade (published in two newspapers and six Web sites) - A decision in the lawsuit that seeks to overturn a state law barring same-sex marriage could come at any time from the Maryland Court of Appeals. Dan Friedman, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law, said there have been few indications of how the court will rule. He noted that even the court’s lack of questions during the Dec. 4 oral arguments gave no clues. "I always caution folks about reading too much into the questioning of the bench," Friedman said. In a brief filed with the court, Friedman and more than 50 other professors from the School and the University of Baltimore reviewed previous case rulings that could support such a ruling.
