Professor Doug Colbert

The Baltimore Examiner - A lawsuit filed by the students at the School of Law and a team of pro bono lawyers from the firm Venable LLP could have sweeping effects for a state judicial system in which arrested individuals generally do not have legal representation until days after their initial bail review, an informal meeting with a court commissioner that takes place within 24 hours of the arrest. Law students several years ago interviewed the defendants, some of whom lost their jobs because they were jailed. Douglas Colbert, JD, a professor at the School who assisted with the case was quoted in some of the stories.

Professor Larry Gibson

Kansas City Star (via AP), The Baltimore Sun - "Any accusation of wrongdoing is embarrassing," said Larry Gibson, LLB, a professor at the School of Law and a veteran political operative. "But considering how comprehensive and how long and how expensive this investigation was, it is almost a clean bill of health for city government."
