- Maureen Sweeney, JD, a clinical instructor who teaches in the immigration clinic at the School of Law, wrote a letter to the editor, saying, "In this 21st century, in which people, ideas, commerce, and information will continue to flow more and more freely across borders and around our shrinking globe, our federal system charged with regulating the all-important flow of people has broken down."

- The Pentagon and the Environmental Protection Agency are mired in a dispute over the pace of environmental clean-ups at Maryland's Fort Meade and Fort Detrick, where contamination from fuels and munitions for years seeped into soil and groundwater. "This is stunning," said Rena Steinzor, JD, a professor at the School of Law and president of the nonprofit Center for Progressive Reform, who helped write the Superfund laws as a congressional staffer. "The idea that they would refuse to sign a final order that is the height of amazing nerve."

- The International Energy Agency (IEA) released a report this week that argued growing speculation in oil markets is not to blame for soaring oil prices, saying the real culprit is supply and demand. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, testified to the contrary before three congressional committees in June, telling lawmakers that on top of the supply/demand problem, excessive speculation by large financial institutions in unregulated oil markets is driving up the price of oil.

- The bail bonds industry, according to Doug Colbert, JD, is "an incredibly powerful, influential, and profitable industry." Colbert, a professor at the School of Law, estimates that bail bondsmen statewide make between $100 and $150 million each year. It’s a system that Colbert would like to see reformed with a supervised release program for nonviolent and minor offenders taking the place of the current system, where it all comes down to cash and who can pay it.

– The Pentagon and the Environmental Protection Agency are mired in a dispute over the pace of environmental cleanups at Maryland's Fort Meade and Fort Detrick, where contamination from fuels and munitions for years seeped into soil and groundwater. One environmental law expert said the Pentagon's stance is indefensible. "It is, in essence, the polluter defining how the cleanup should be done," said Rena Steinzor, JD, professor at the School of Law and president of the nonprofit Center for Progressive Reform. The EPA would typically sue private employers that refuse to sign cleanup orders. But the EPA would not take such action against the Pentagon, she said, because that would be tantamount to the government suing itself.
