Professor Brenda Bratton Blom

The Baltimore Sun – The owner of Baltimore’s Senator Theatre, which is threatened with foreclosure, is investigating ways to run the Senator as a for-profit but with nonprofit components morning screenings for school children, for example, or other educational and civic uses. "Having the theater itself as a nonprofit may not be the answer," said Brenda Blom, JD, PhD, MPS, associate professor at the School of Law who was brought in by state economic development officials to explore turning the Senator into a nonprofit. "The issue is, how do we get the conversation going that can both maintain it as a venue for these fabulous first-run films and create the sort of community-building, nonprofit opportunities that can live in a symbiotic relationship?"

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

The Baltimore Sun – Douglas Gansler, Maryland’s attorney general is exploring the creation of a cold-case squad to investigate unsolved homicides, with an emphasis on racial crimes dating back to the civil rights era. Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, associate professor at the School of Law, said, "This idea is part of a national movement in many ways, prodded by families of victims of crimes never brought to justice."
