Professor Michael Greenberger

60 Minutes, WJZ-TV, "This American Life," WYPR – When large financial institutions began their love affair with credit default swaps (CDS)–instruments that experts say are at the heart of today’s financial crisis–in the late ’90s, few officials and lawmakers on Capitol Hill believed CDS should be regulated. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law, was a director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission during that time and called for the regulation of CDS. "The idea that you can have $60 trillion in a financial market, which is more than all the stocks sold anywhere in the world, and not have any oversight whatsoever is self-evidently absurd and we’re seeing the end result of that today," Greenberger said.

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

Flashpoint! With Lionel Waxman, PatDollard.com – The actions and remarks of Sarah Palin are something that caught the eye of Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, a School of Law professor who has taught voting rights, equal protection, and restorative justice. She said, "Black women are not easily confused by false claims to feminism. When women like Palin lay claims to ‘representing’ average women, I think that black women have a visceral reaction to it."

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

The Community Times – Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, a professor at the School of Law, whom Gwen Ifill has lauded as "my brilliant baby cousin," has written that black women are not buying Sarah Palin’s "false claims to feminism" and is portrayed as too perfect: "when women who are privileged present as though they have it all together, it’s offensive to black women. From the first day, Palin presented herself as shooting a bear in the morning, field dressing it, cooking up the breakfast, diapering the babies, passing legislation in the afternoon, cleaning the house, satisfying her husband, etc., etc., etc. And it’s just not true," she wrote in an e-mail interview. "It’s hard to be an average working mom, really hard. And when women who are privileged present as though they have it all together, it's offensive to black women."
