Professor Larry Gibson

The Baltimore Sun – Long before May 17, 1954, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Board of Education that school segregation must end, Baltimore native Thurgood Marshall had been using the courts, particularly in Maryland, to fight for equality. "The first three big steps on the road to Brown occurred in Maryland, and Thurgood Marshall was involved in all of them," said Larry Gibson, LLB, professor at the School of Law.

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

The Baltimore Sun – "I originally thought I was going to write this encyclopedic book of lynching," says Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, a professor at the School of Law. Instead, her research took a narrative turn as she focused on the tragic deaths of Matthew Williams and George Armwood, two black men murdered by white mobs on the Eastern Shore in the 1930s the last two recorded lynchings, in Maryland. Ifill wound up devoting five years to writing On the Courthouse Lawn.

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

The Baltimore Sun – Joseph Moore, a former Worcester County prosecutor, is curious to see how a book by Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, a professor at the School of Law, titled, On the Courthouse Lawn detailing the murders of George Armwood and Matthew Williams and the legacy of lynchings will be received in Maryland. His guess is inhabitants of the Eastern Shore will react more in the spirit of accommodation than reconciliation. "I think they will be saying, ‘That’s the way it was then, but we’ve come so far it has no applicability now. That was a lifetime away.’"

Teresa Schmiedeler, Director of Pro Bono and Public Service Initiatives

The Daily Record - For 20 years, the Maryland Public Interest Law Project (MPILP) at the School of Law has raised funds to support students working in public interest law. Founders Nevett Steele and Michael Millemann, JD, professor at the School, will be feted at a champagne reception for MPILP alumni prior to its annual auction on March 10. "Twenty years is a milestone and we want to honor our two co-founders and the ways they contribute to the legal profession and the public interest community," said Teresa Schmiedeler, JD, director of pro bono and public service initiatives at the School. "They are mentors and role models for the next generation of public interest attorneys."

Dean Karen Rothenberg

The New Scientist – The shift in control of Congress has brightened prospects for approval of a law that would prevent employers or insurers from discriminating on the basis of genetic test results, according to legislators and other government officials. Previous attempts to introduce such a law faltered in a Republican-dominated House, but that all changed when the Democrats took charge of Congress last November. "There’s a willingness to get something passed," said Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, MPA, dean of the School of Law.
