Professor Abraham Dash

WBFF-TV, Ch. 45 – Courts in the State of Maryland are selling lists of traffic citations to attorneys so they can solicit clients through the mail. Some of the recipients of this mail are objecting, but Abraham Dash, JD, professor at the School of Law, says that a single solicitation by attorneys is legal and making the lists public was the result of a court decision.

Professor Roger Wolf

The Daily Record – Twenty-five years ago, mediation and alternate forms of dispute resolution were not part of an effective lawyer’s practice. Now they are. And for that we have Roger Wolf, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Dispute Resolution, to thank. He was one of a few forward-thinking people who long ago recognized that the win-at-all-costs approach to dispute resolution was neither a satisfying nor a healing process, and then dedicated his professional life to doing something about it. For this, Wolf was recently honored with the Chief Judge Robert M. Bell Award for Outstanding Contribution to Alternative Dispute Resolution in Maryland.

Professor Abraham Dash

The Baltimore Sun – Joseph W. Rutter Jr., a former Anne Arundel planning officer-turned-developer who was cleared to work as a consultant on the county’s once-a-decade growth plan, has sparked a renewed call to bolster the county's ethics rules. The difference in Rutter’s case, legal experts said, is that Rutter is working for the county, so his expertise would presumably benefit his former employer, said Abraham Dash, JD, a professor at the School of Law. Dash said that Rutter followed the highest level of ethics. "To me, I don’t see where he’s doing anything wrong," the professor added.
