Professor Douglas Colbert

The National Law Journal – Douglas Colbert, JD, a professor at the School of Law, wrote about equal justice for poor people accused of committing a crime, saying, "The longer an accused remains unrepresented and unable to challenge the government's case, the more likely delay jeopardizes a fair trial. The prosecutor’s decisive advantage often results in unjust convictions and coerced pleas."

Dean Karen Rothenberg

The Daily Record – This year also may be bittersweet at Maryland because it will be Dean Karen H. Rothenberg’s final year leading the School of Law. Rothenberg will step down in June after serving as dean for nearly 10 years. "There’s an anticipation of everything she wants to accomplish," spokesman Jamie Smith said. Already under way is the Leadership, Ethics and Democracy (LEAD) initiative, a first-of-its-kind program that integrates social and ethical skills throughout the curriculum. Part of the LEAD program, led by Professor Michael Millemann, JD, is the creation of a legal clinic in collaboration with the Mississippi Center for Justice to assist low-income communities still struggling since Hurricane Katrina.

Assistant Dean Dana Morris

The Daily Record – In the fictional town of Lake Wobegon, all the children are above average. In law school, not so much. Only a handful of people can be at the top of the class. But what about the rest of the class? Many report that they are having trouble finding jobs upon graduation. One man spoke about doing mindless contract work. "I never expected myself to be in this position," said the contract lawyer, a 2005 University of Maryland graduate. Dana Morris, JD, assistant dean for career development at the School of Law, wrote in an e-mail that the School can provide students with information on legal salaries and that salary information is available online.

Professor Rena Steinzor

The Baltimore Sun – Rena Steinzor, JD, a professor at the School of Law, wrote in a letter to the editor, "In last week's interplanetary news, we learned that NASA's Phoenix lander has discovered the toxic chemical perchlorate, an oxidizing agent, in the soil near the north pole of Mars, dimming hopes for discovering life on the red planet. Apparently, no landscape will be left unturned in the space agency's exploration of the planet, which orbits 55 million miles from Earth. Meanwhile, back in the United States, the Bush administration's top political appointee responsible for implementing water quality laws told Congress on May 6 that he was seriously considering abandoning efforts to issue a health standard for perchlorate, which is used in explosives and is estimated to pollute the water supply of 20 million Americans, including those who live near Aberdeen Proving Ground in Harford County. The juxtaposition of events on Mars and here at home would be funny if it were not so tragic.
