Maryland Katrina and Indigent Defense Project

WYPR-FM – Fifty students from the School of Law, who formed the Maryland Katrina and Indigent Defense Project, traveled to Louisiana last week to aid in the ongoing process of rebuilding New Orleans and its legal system. "They’ve just kind of been sitting, languishing in jail, without any knowledge of the status of their case," said second-year student Brigid Ryan. "We as lawyers can do something in the legal system," said Douglas Colbert, JD, professor at the School. Second-year student Clayton Solomon, who started the project last year, said he and others came to New Orleans to help people and as a kind of lawyer's image rehabilitation effort.

Professor Michael Greenberger

Dow Jones Newswires – Congress is preparing to launch a raft of legislation and hearings that aim to increase oversight of energy trading, aides and spokespersons said Tuesday. Democrats and Republicans alike are preparing to examine whether oil and gas companies have been price-gouging during a year of volatile and record-high oil and gas prices, and whether hedge funds and investment bank trades need greater regulation to prevent market manipulation. Michael Greenberger, JD, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security and a professor in the School of Law, pushed for over-the-counter energy regulation when he served as director of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Trading and Markets in the late 1990’s. Greenberger says investment banks and hedge funds "are preparing for a massive fight."
