Professor Rena Steinzor

The Baltimore Examiner, The Baltimore Sun Students across the country will bring together educators, policymakers, and activists on Jan. 31 for a national teach-in called "Focus the Nation" to concentrate on climate solutions. "Its an appeal to student activism," said Rena Steinzor, JD, professor at the School of Law. "Climate change news grows bleaker by the day. Around the world, policymakers struggle to find politically workable solutions to these problems. Students want to help them," wrote Andrew Gohn, a second-year student at the School, in an Op-Ed about the consequences of inaction in regard to the environmental issues.

Professor Douglas Colbert

WYPR-FM, WYPR.org More than 80 students from the School of Law spent their winter break in Louisiana and Mississippi, donating their time with criminal and civil cases, and rebuilding projects in an area still struggling to recover from 2005s Hurricane Katrina. Douglas Colbert, JD, professor at the School, described how Eric Garvey, a first-year student, skillfully answered a question from a judge. It showed, Colbert said, how Maryland students think on their feet. "Being a lawyer is about helping people, and you lose sight of that," said Garvey. "It helped us reconnect. These arent just names, faceless people. These are real lives and these are real people." Anne Deady, a third-year student, marveled at how this program has become part of the law school culture. "Its amazing. Something that started as an idea with a few students has become a rite of passage."

Associated Press (Also published in nine newspapers and two Web sites) - U.S. prosecutors face steep legal hurdles if they appeal prison terms imposed on Jose Padilla and two other men convicted of terrorism conspiracy and material support charges because of the broad powers federal judges have to decide sentences. "Judges are now untethered from the guidelines," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "It means they have a lot more discretion."

The Christian Science Monitor, CSMonitor.com This April, the first tests of technology to counter shoulder-fired missiles will begin aboard commercial airplanes. Three American Airlines 767s that fly daily between New York and Los Angeles will be fitted with little laser-equipped robots designed to detect and divert shoulder-fired, heat-seeking missiles. "Its always hard to make these judgments," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, about whether the plan is a good use of resources. "It is wise to test to see how it works, but I just dont think it should be a priority, given that there are just so many other things we should be doing that were not."
