Dean Karen Rothenberg

The Daily Record – First-time takers of the Maryland Bar Exam from the University of Maryland School of Law scored a 90 percent passage rate this July, according to James Smith, the School’s director of communications. "It’s extremely gratifying to know how well our law students are doing on the bar exam, especially with the inclusion of the [Multistate Performance Test] portion, which evaluates their practical and analytical skills," said Karen Rothenberg, JD, MPA, dean of the School. "We have had a trend of increasing our bar passage rates over the last number of years [which] has consistently surpassed the state average."

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

The Minnesota Lawyer – Nov. 17
The Minnesota Lawyer - The Court of Appeals celebrated its 25th anniversary with a red rose-bedecked feast at Landmark Center in St. Paul on Thursday, Nov. 6, the site where the first judges for the court took their oaths. The evening featured a video on the history of the court and a speech by Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, professor at the School of Law, an authority on judicial diversity and independence. She recommended that judges "aggressively fight to restore the rights of litigants to center place in the discussion of judicial independence." But she also said that the national trend to nasty, expensive judicial campaigns is not all attributable to Republican Party v. White.

Professor Michael Greenberger

All Things Considered, WNYC (NPR) – The 111th Congress and the incoming Obama administration face the daunting task of overhauling the government’s financial regulatory system, and that push could include increased regulation in the opaque derivatives market. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), advocated increased federal oversight of derivatives when he was with the CFTC in the late 1990s. "I think the American people now are insistent after having to make this huge investment in the financial services market that no part of this market be a secret to the United States government."

Adjunct Professor Andrew Levy

The Daily Record – Health care advocates are set Wednesday to unveil a $15.5 billion proposal to offer medical coverage to everyone in Maryland, but their proposal which relies heavily on a new business tax faces a difficult path during tight economic times for the state. There are larger issues than a single tax increase to consider, said Andrew Levy, JD, adjunct professor at the School of Law.
