Dean Karen Rothenberg

The Baltimore Sun – 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.The fight is an early harbinger of the legal issues raised by the proliferation of genetic tests, now conducted by 610 laboratories into more than 1,350 diseases. "It is just one major public policy issue, and it might be the easiest," to address, said Karen H. Rothenberg, JD, MPA, dean of the School of Law, who is scheduled to testify in support of the measure today before a House subcommittee.

Professor Rena Steinzor

The Washington Post – President George W. Bush issued an executive order curbing the power of agencies to regulate industry through "guidance" informal advice that falls short of official rules yet can still cost companies millions of dollars to comply with. Under the order, regulators also will have to estimate the total costs and benefits of planned rules.

Adjunct Professor Rod Rosenstein

The Daily Record – Lawyers throughout the state are encouraged by their peers and the judiciary to use their legal skills to help those in need. For government lawyers, however, it isn’t always easy to volunteer. "There was a time that pro bono work was discouraged," said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. "In 1990, when I joined [the Justice Department], it was discouraged because of the risk of a conflict of interest or the risk that someone would misunderstand the lawyer’s authority." Today, lawyers are encouraged to donate their services but avoid conflicts. Rosenstein teaches law at the University of Maryland School of Law.

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

"The Front Page with Craig Thompson," WEAA-FM – "I have been amazed to discover how often and how pervasively racial violence figures into the history of small towns and cities throughout the United States," Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, associate professor at the School of Law, writes in the introduction of her new book, On the Courthouse Lawn: Confronting the Legacy of Lynching in the Twenty-First Century. The book not only discusses lynchings on Maryland’s Eastern Shore but also offers South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, with its emphasis on restorative justice, as a way to finally bring all the stories of the shore’s painful past to the light to facilitate healing for individuals, communities, and organizations. Ifill’s colleague, Taunya Lovell Banks, JD, professor at the School, praised the book, and what it puts forward, as "groundbreaking."
