Fall 2013 | 1 | welcome From the Dean Ronald Weich we serve, law schools today must partner with other disciplines. They must equip students to work with the information technology that is transforming the profession. They must give students the chance to gain real-world lawyering experience before graduation. Above all, law schools must be willing to adjust course and remain nimble as the profession is buffeted by change. It’s been a year of hard work but also a year of celebration. Guests who helped open our new law center included Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, as well as Gov. Martin O’Malley, Chief Judge Robert Bell and scores of other Maryland leaders. Many other prominent legal figures, including my former boss, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, visited Baltimore during the year to speak to UB students. We are delighted to share these and other exciting developments with you in this first issue of Baltimore Law. I hope this publication makes you as proud to be a part of the UB community as I am. M y first year at the University of Baltimore School of Law has been a fascinating whirlwind of activity and change. I’ve loved every minute of it and learned a lot about this great school. The most unmistakable sign of change at UB is the new John and Frances Angelos Law Center, a sunlit, state-of-the-art, sustainable marvel of design. Though the building is 12 stories tall and clad in white aluminum and glass, it is no ivory tower in the traditional sense. Nor is there any stodginess in the law school’s approach to teaching law at a time when the legal profession is evolving dramatically. The challenges are daunting, but UB is well-positioned to meet those challenges, and I’m proud to be a part of that endeavor. After 30 years of legal practice in the public and private sectors, I wanted an opportunity to help prepare the next generation of lawyers. And I wanted to do that at a school that doesn’t simply adjust to changes in the marketplace but anticipates and helps to shape them. These aren’t small goals, but they’re necessary. To do well by students, and by the communities Ronald Weich Dean | 2 | Baltimore Law fall 2013 in this issue: 10 LIT UP The new John and Frances Angelos Law Center reflects and highlights the modern education offered within. 18 On the Map Professor Colin Starger plots the genealogy of U.S. Supreme Court decisions. departments Legal Briefs............................ 04 14 Annual Giving Report............. 20 The Unconventional Dean Notes .................................... 26 In Closing.............................. 32 Ronald Weich didnâ€™t come up the academic pipeline.

Fall 2013 | 3 | legalbriefs UB School of Law Joins Forces With KIND to Help Young Immigrants H ere’s the scene: A small boy —in his Sunday best and clearly nervous—sits in a large, formal chamber in Baltimore. All around him, other youngsters, some as young as 2 or 3, are standing, sitting, talking, moping. All of them wear an expression that seems to ask: When will this be over? What am I doing here? The children, who are awaiting a hearing in the federal courthouse, have been apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security and are facing deportation. According to KIND—Kids In Need of Defense—23,000 children will arrive alone in the United States in 2013. The national nonprofit, founded by actress and UNHCR special envoy Angelina Jolie and the Microsoft Corp., provides pro bono legal services to unaccompanied refugee and immigrant children in the United States. In June, UB became the first law school in the nation to house KIND, which works with the Immigrant Rights Clinic. (The group has had an office in Baltimore since 2009.) The problem of children left to fend for themselves is becoming epidemic. According to U.S. Border Control statistics, nearly 25,000 unaccompanied children were apprehended in fiscal year 2012—up from about 8,000 in FY 2008. Most came from Central America, KIND says. The children leave home because of violence, poverty, political turmoil, abandonment and other factors. Most of the children can’t comprehend the legal procedures they face and the options open to them, advocates say. And they do have options: roughly 40 percent of unaccompanied minors detained in federal shelters were eligible for some form of legal status, a 2012 report by the Vera Institute of Justice in New York said. But to fight for legal status—to fight being returned to the places they fled—these children need lawyers. More than half of the unaccompanied minors detained do not have legal representation, according to KIND. Back to our scene: An important extra sits next to the boy—a UB law student who is determined to persuade a judge to let the child remain in the United States. The student, too, is nervous. A lot is on the line. But University of Baltimore law clinic leaders say that in most such cases, the government, the judge and the other parties involved find a way for the child to stay. “Generally, we find that the government does not want to just send kids back over the border without knowing what’s going to happen to them,” said Professor Elizabeth Keyes, director of the Immigrant Rights Clinic, or IRC. “The technical standard is that the child is abused, abandoned or neglected. Once that is established and the child has legal status, we all work together to find a solution.” Liz Shields, supervising attorney for pro bono programs for KIND in Baltimore, said she hoped the nonprofit could serve as an example of a “different kind of law practice” that offers clinical and nonclinical students the chance to gain practical experience by helping pro bono attorneys. She also said she enjoyed working with the clinic. “I love placing cases with the IRC because rather than wanting one of the ‘neatest’ or most straightforward cases, the IRC welcomes the most difficult and challenging cases which allow for nuanced arguments, often contain ‘bad’ facts and ultimately provide an opportunity for the students to create new legal arguments,” Shields said. “Being located next door to the IRC means they are the first folks I think of when a new case comes through the door.” | 4 | Baltimore Law A Sampling of News from the Centers n The Sayra and Neil Meyerhoff Center for Families, Children and the Courts received several grants in 2013 to support its Truancy Court Program: $83,751 from the Department of Family Administration’s Special Projects Grant Program of the Maryland Judiciary and $15,000 from the Zanvyl and Isabelle Krieger Fund. In late 2012, CFCC received a $300,000 grant from AT&T, as well as $60,000 from the Charles Crane Family Foundation. The fifth Urban Child Symposium, “A Holistic Approach to the Urban Child’s Trauma: From the Eyes of the Beholder,” attracted 200 people on April 4. Rain Pryor—singer, actress, producer and daughter of the comedian Richard Pryor—gave the keynote address. n The School of Law and the Center for International and Comparative Law were the hosts May 21 to 23 to the annual meeting of the European-American Consortium for Legal Education and its academic colloquium on “Multi-level-governance and Federalism.” On April 3, Anne Peters, professor at the University of Basel and president of the European Society of International Law, gave the University of Baltimore Stead Lecture, “Transparency in International Law.” The 2012 Stead Lecture, “Drones, Kill Lists and American Values,” was presented on Nov. 13 by Scott Shane, a national security reporter for The New York Times. n The Sixth Annual Feminist Legal Theory Conference, sponsored by the Center on Applied Feminism, was held March 7 and 8. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat from Minnesota and Professor John Bessler’s wife, gave the keynote address. New Fannie Angelos Program: Encouraging Diversity in the Law $1 million gift from Peter Angelos, LL.B. ’61, has permitted the expansion of the School of Law’s Baltimore Scholars program, an intensive, one-onone approach to enhancing diversity in legal education and in the wider legal community. The five-year-old program has been renamed the Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence after Angelos’ sister, a 1951 UB School of Law graduate. The program, directed by Professors Michael Higginbotham and Michael Meyerson and administered by Lenora Giles, is a partnership with Maryland’s four historically black colleges and universities, or HBCUs: Bowie State University, Coppin State University, Morgan State University and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. The program has helped 36 HBCU students enter law school. Each year, eight undergraduate HBCU juniors and seniors are chosen as Baltimore Scholars to take part in a two-week “boot camp,” in which they attend classes, read cases and write assignments for review by law school faculty. The scholars also meet with law students, visit law firms and speak with lawyers and judges. The scholars then enroll in a semester-long Princeton Review LSAT preparation class paid for by the University of Baltimore School of Law. Each scholar is assigned a law faculty adviser and a law student mentor. The scholars are not required to attend law school at the University of Baltimore, but those who complete the program successfully, maintain a cumulative undergraduate grade point average of 3.5 and score 152 or higher on the LSAT receive a full, three-year scholarship to the University of Baltimore School of Law. This year, four scholars attend the UB School of Law on full, three-year scholarships. A second part of the program provides an LSAT preparation class to more students.

Fall 2013 | 5 | legalbriefs commencement House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Baltimore native, delivered the School of Law’s commencement address on May 20, 2013. Here are excerpts: Today, you graduate at a time when public service is not only commendable, it is essential; when our common values of fairness and equality must not only be restated, but they must be strengthened. What we need now is the courage— your courage—to face, confront and overcome some of the challenges of our time, the challenges to our democracy. […] [T]he challenges that we face today … threaten the middle class and we must strengthen it, as I keep saying, in keeping the American Dream alive. We must honor the spirit of the great motto of this university, it’s fabulous: “Knowledge that works.” … Right now, the doors of opportunity are closed to many in our society. We must restore confidence in our economy, this is one of our challenges—to restore confidence in our economy by creating good-paying jobs for our workers, by making it in America and reigniting the American Dream. We must address this challenge, but I think it’s important for us to recognize that it is the issue of income disparity. We must close the gaping hole—40 years ago, those who measure such things determined that the average CEO ... made about 40 times what the average worker made. ... Today, the average CEO ... makes about 350 times the average worker. ... Productivity continues to increase, but the workers do not get the rewards. So, this is something that we have to address because income disparity undermines the middle class. … And one of the ways that we can address the disparity in income is to address the disparity in education. To make sure that every person can participate in our country’s prosperity, we must end disparity in education by supporting our teachers, by supporting education and by making college more affordable to many more people. … We must decrease the deficit. But nothing brings more money to the Treasury than investing in education. […] So, it’s up to you to have the courage to stand up for our values and keep the doors of opportunity open to all. Throughout our history, from the Bill of Rights to Brown v. Board of Education to the present, the realization of individual, political and economic rights has been central to the strength of our democratic ideals. My charge to you today is to build on that tradition and to make that legacy your own; to know that you have the confidence, you have the legal education … and the moral wherewithal to pursue the work of justice.

A social worker at the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center in New York, Emerson worked with young survivors of sex trafficking. Observing the adolescents and the staff as they worked with attorneys to craft and eventually pass the New York State Safe Harbor Act, which decriminalizes prostitution for minors, Emerson had an “aha” moment. “I realized then the terrific partnership that law and social work can make and became inspired to put my social work skills to similar use,” said Emerson, who has a master’s degree in social work from Columbia University. Emerson jumped into law school—and extracurricular activities—with vigor. She served as president of UB Students for Public Interest, or UBSPI, which raises money for stipends that allow students to work for a public-interest organization over the summer. She was awarded the U.S. Court of Federal Claims Bar Association’s Carole Bailey Scholarship, an award given law students with a demonstrated commitment to public service, as well as the University of Baltimore School of Law’s Samuel I. “Sandy” Rosenberg public-service scholarship. Emerson competed for and won a two-year Equal Justice Works fellowship at the Women’s Law Center of Maryland, where she is working to implement a new Maryland law that allows survivors of sex trafficking to vacate their prostitution convictions. “It is truly my dream job,” Emerson said. “After three years in law school, I am finally able to immerse myself in an issue I have been passionate about for the better part of a decade.” Emerson is also developing a training program for attorneys that will teach them how to use the new Maryland legislation to aid sex-trafficking survivors. In return, the lawyers agree to take the cases on a pro bono basis. Even though Emerson is a New York native, she’s committed to doing her fellowship in Baltimore. “The public-interest providers in this community remain as deeply committed to the integrity and advancement of the city’s residents as any I’ve ever seen,” she said. Emerson said she looks forward to returning the favors done for her at the University of Baltimore School of Law: “The mentoring I received from both the faculty at UB and the public-interest community was invaluable to me, and I can’t wait to be a part of offering that same support and encouragement to another student like me.” bythenumbers 03 Of the region’s nine law schools, UB ranked third in the percentage of first-time test takers who passed the Maryland bar in July 2012, behind GWU and Georgetown. 23 In 2012, UB ranked 23rd in the country in the percentage of students employed at graduation. 28 The UB School of Law’s clinical program was ranked 28th in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for 2014.

It might bear no resemblance to any building you’ve ever seen. A juxtaposition of cubes, the school fills the compact site of a former parking lot at the corner of Mount Royal Avenue and North Charles Street in midtown Baltimore. From a distance the building’s white-and-black checkerboard façade makes it look like a monochrome Rubik’s Cube, but up close the structure is more dazzling than minimalist. In the lobby, strings of confetti-like LED lights lead the eye up through an atrium that runs the full height of the building like a stalk. The open core is crisscrossed by catwalks and free-standing stairs that link the two, asymmetric sides of the building. The dominant materials are glass, concrete and blond wood, set off by shots of lime, yellow and orange on walls, floors and furniture. But it’s the use of glass that most characterizes the new law school. Classroom and office doors and walls are see-through. So are the front elevators. Even the dean’s office is transparent. The building is an open book. With cutting-edge technologies for heating and cooling and a system to capture and reuse rainwater, it’s also a highly sophisticated structure that is expected to earn LEED Platinum status from the U.S. Green Building Council. No Powdered Wigs German architect Stefan Behnisch, who won an international design competition to land the job, said University of Baltimore President Robert L. Bogomolny was “looking for something to give students a feeling that the future is different, the future is changing”— and that the future is in their hands to create. (Chancell0r William E. “Brit” Kirwan lauded the president’s efforts, saying he thinks of the new building as “the house that Bob built.”) Above all, Behnisch said in an interview, the University of Baltimore did not want a law center that was “stuffy like the British lawyers with their hairdo.” School of Law Dean Ronald Weich finds the new building anything but stuffy or staid, and says its design is an apt metaphor for the rigorous, practical and modern legal education provided by the law school. “I saw it the first time I toured the building,” Weich said in a December 2012 interview in The BuildUp, a university newsletter that chronicled the construction of the law center. “This is more than an innovative, dramatic design—it’s also a symbol of legal education in the 21st century. In fact, it’s a reflection of law itself, creating order out of complexity.” Weich added that there was “a statement” in the use of concrete and glass: “We teach our students that law is about real people and live problems. There’s a grittiness to the building that’s going to bring a lot of energy and creative thinking to our whole community.” Behnisch, whose practice is based in Stuttgart, Germany, with offices in Munich and Boston, is the son of prominent postwar German architect Günter Behnisch. Behnisch père rejected authoritarian Nazi architecture and sought to counteract its pomposity and heaviness by creating structures stripped down to their essential elements, according to architect and commentator Klaus Philipsen. Stefan Behnisch, too, seeks this “lightness of being” in his buildings, wrote Philipsen of Baltimore’s ArchPlan Inc. in a blog post. With wide expanses of glass, free-floating stairways, thin tubular railings and bright colors, as well as unpainted materials and exposed ductwork, Behnisch’s creations are open and cheerful—but they are more than that. In a 2011 interview with the World Intellectual Property Organization magazine, Behnisch said he sought to bring people together with his T | 12 | Baltimore Law he John and Frances Angelos Law Center, at the corner of North Charles Street and Mount Royal Avenue, is named after the parents of School of Law alumnus Peter Ange- los, LL.B. '61, who donated $15 million to the project. UB raised a total of $22 million in private funding for the building, which cost $119 million. Here are some particulars about the law center, for which ground was broken on Aug. 26, 2010: By Hope Keller designs. (Behnisch designed an extension of the group’s Geneva, Switzerland, headquarters.) “I like creating spaces where people can work and live together; where they can communicate, interact and work in an interdisciplinary way,” Behnisch said. “Such buildings have a great impact on our society, and designing them is a great honor.” At the law center, students study at counters overlooking the atrium, or sit and talk together in the clusters of colorful upholstered chairs scattered throughout the building. Faculty, staff and students mingle in the tangle of said. “We can make sure that our law graduates are prepared to contribute to the tectonic shifts we’re seeing in the global economy and in our national institutions. Or we can marginalize ourselves by sticking to old beliefs and old ways of doing things.” So far, the building has earned rave reviews from the people who use it. Professors said the striking design had improved morale. “It’s not just aesthetics,” said Robert Rubinson, director of clinical education. “It’s how students feel about their learning experience. I think the building clearly enhances that. “It’s time for law to be innovative,” she said. ‘The Best Of Disinfectants’ Weich recalled the words of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis, who remarked that sunlight “is said to be the best of disinfectants.” “Like Brandeis, I like transparency,” Weich said in the newsletter interview. “I want people to know what’s going on in the law and in our school.” Continued Weich: “The building is undoubtedly complex. It’s multifaceted and multidirectional. But it’s also systematic and intentional, and to me that’s a symbol of how the law brings order to our chaotic lives. The fact that it’s also a highly sustainable building shows that we can leverage a measure of control over our environment. I think that’s just inspired.” Professor William Hubbard, who teaches intellectual property law, said that the school’s design was indeed inspirational—and that it reminds students and faculty of why they went into law in the first place. “Sometimes claiming physical spaces can affect the activity within [is] a concept that is given lip service,” he said. “But here I think it’s true.” Charles Cohen contributed reporting to this article. “ n The University of Baltimore did not want a law center that was “stuffy like the British lawyers with their hairdo.” Architect Stefan Behnisch “There is a rush of excitement when you walk into a building and it makes you feel good about yourself and what you are doing. You are more open to learning.” Professor Barbara White, who teaches business law, said the building was a reminder that the legal profession is changing and that it’s time legal education changed with it. catwalks and stairs, and co-workers wave to each other through glass walls and doors. Weich, who said buildings should “facilitate” the work of the people who use them, said in the BuildUp article that the law center’s design represented a new way of thinking about the law and legal education. “We face a stark choice,” Weich 1 2 stories n 1 92,000 square feet n 1 5 classrooms n 2 9 large- and small-group study spaces 3 2,000-square-foot library n 3 00-seat moot courtroom n n G reen roofs and terraces with n C entral atrium featuring natural light, greenery and areas for contemplation and collaboration n I ndoor and outdoor water plantings and trees n C utting-edge technologies for features n R ainwater capture and reuse heating and cooling Fall 2013 | 13 | Dean Ronald Weich By Joe Surkiewicz Unconventional candidate reflects after a year T he view from atop the University of Baltimore School of Law’s gleaming new building encompasses some of Baltimore’s major arteries: Charles and St. Paul streets, Interstate 83, Mount Royal Avenue. Across the highway is Pennsylvania Station. “From the 12th floor, looking out across Baltimore, you realize where you are,” said Dean Ronald Weich. “It’s the proverbial crossroads.” The law school sits at a metaphorical crossroads as well. With the legal profession confronting a sharply straitened marketplace, legal education is facing unprecedented challenges. Applications are down and class sizes are shrinking at law schools across the nation. Newspaper articles raise the specter of law schools closing and graduates reduced to working at Starbucks because they can’t find jobs as attorneys. Into this breach comes Weich. At 53, he has served multiple stints on Capitol Hill, advising some of Washington’s most powerful politicians, and has also spent time in private practice. Until last year, the one area he hadn’t worked in was academia. He’s perfect for the dean’s job, those who know him say. “I know the challenges law schools are facing,” said U.S. District Court Judge James K. Bredar, who met Weich shortly after they both graduated from Yale Law School. “UB Law couldn’t have found a better person to lead it.” Weich, Bredar said, is “incredibly talented with people and intelligent about relationships. He can figure out how to make a deal happen and has a talent to make people comfortable. He’s disarming, very funny, quite sharp, engaging, energetic and creative.” It is Weich’s unconventionality that makes him the right person to lead the law school now, said Bredar, who serves on the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, Northern Division in Baltimore. “[He’s] what the school requires at this point,” Bredar said, citing Weich’s stature in Washington. “UB has two assets other schools would like to have: an extraordinary physical plant and a visionary new leader with a fresh perspective. Ron is a uniquely gifted guy who will sort out those challenges.” Weich acknowledged that the traditional model for a law dean is a law professor who’s worked his or her way up to the top spot. “There’s a growing recognition that the job isn’t about teaching,” said Weich, | 14 | Baltimore Law Fall 2013 | 15 | Dean Ronald Weich with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder at the University of Baltimore School of Law in November 2012. seated in his light-filled, seventh-floor office. “It’s about representing the university in these different times, presenting its case to the applicants, the donors, the administration and the faculty.” He listed some of the political talents he learned over his 30-year career in the public and private sectors: building consensus, forging compromise and holding the attention of an audience. “So far, I’ve found all these skills transferable,” he said. Before becoming dean at UB in July 2012, Weich served as the assistant attorney general for legislative affairs in the U.S. Department of Justice, a position to which he was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2009. “It’s a very high position at the DOJ, with very challenging and complicated work,” said Judith C. Appelbaum, who met Weich when they both worked for Sen. Edward Kennedy and who later served as one of Weich’s deputies at the Justice Department. “He manages difficult situations well,” continued Appelbaum, now a visiting professor of law and the interim director of the Federal Legislation and Administrative Clinic at the Georgetown University Law Center. “He has a set of values that transfers anyplace. He understands competing interests. He keeps people motivated and satisfied. It was a brilliant selection by UB.” Martin Himeles, managing partner at Zuckerman Spaeder’s Baltimore office, got to know Weich when the latter worked at the law firm’s Washington office in the 1990s after serving as chief counsel to Sen. Kennedy. Weich, Himeles said, is “[the most] humble guy you could ever meet—he’s just a regular guy.” Himeles said the dean is also a pragmatist. “He’s a leader who people want to follow and he gets things done in a way that doesn’t ruffle feathers,” Himeles said. “He just inspires people.” And he seems to like them too. Himeles recalled that shortly after Weich became dean the two attended a game at Camden Yards. “I was chatting with Ron, asking him how things were going,” Himeles said. “A guy sitting in front of us in the stands turned around and asked Ron if he was the new dean. The guy had just graduated. Ron really engaged with him and asked him to stop by his office.” Another Weich trait is knowing his own mind. Herbert Better, who also worked with Weich at Zuckerman Spaeder, said Weich called him last year to discuss the UB job offer. “I said, ‘Do you really want to do this?’” Better recalled. “His answer was ‘yes.’ It was clear to me he was really serious—that he had thought about it and viewed it as a tremendous opportunity.” Better said Weich fully grasped the challenges facing the institution. “If there’s ever been a low point in law schools, this is it,” Better said. “But he saw it as an opportunity to make a difference. For Ron, this is the time to do this—a special opportunity to make a difference.” A year after he started, Weich has settled into his corner office in the brand-new John and Frances Angelos Law Center and into the job. “They were looking for something different—and that’s me,” he said with a laugh. “The problems facing UB Law are varied. But the situation isn’t dire— or as bad as [it is at] other law schools around the country.” For one thing, the school is on solid financial footing. “State funding has remained level,” Weich said. “Other states have seen significant funding cuts.” One of his first decisions was to shrink the class of 2013 by 50 students, or by roughly 15 percent. “The class will have a better educational experience and there will be less competition for [students] when they enter the job market,” Weich said. “It’s a sensible reaction. We also won’t be digging deeper into a smaller applicant pool, which means we’ll get people | 16 | Baltimore Law who will succeed.” Looking ahead, Weich said that the School of Law will make sure students get hands-on, practical experience, especially when it comes to technology. “They need to be sophisticated about the ways technology is changing every aspect of law practice, from complex litigation to business transactions. They need to understand how lawyers solve problems in the 21st century,” Weich said. “The new building reflects that. Of course, our classroom technology is state-of-the-art. And beyond that, this may be the most contemporary law school building in America.” Weich’s vision for the school recognizes that UB can serve populations beyond J.D. students, such as practicing lawyers who seek specialized post-graduate training and foreign-trained lawyers, who can sit for the bar examination in Maryland, New York and Washington, D.C., after receiving an LL.M. degree in the Law of the United States. And, with a nod to the nearby railroad station that puts Capitol Hill less than an hour away, Weich said he has been tapping his Washington connections. “I’ve begun to open some internship opportunities in D.C.,” he said. “And I want to work with UB alumni in D.C. to broaden the availability of jobs and strengthen UB Law’s stature.” The law school’s reputation as a place where students get a solid, practical education is “an important asset,” Weich said, but he stressed that it doesn’t fully describe the rigorous academic training He can figure out how to make a deal happen and has a talent to make people comfortable. He’s disarming, very funny, quite sharp, engaging, energetic and creative. students receive from the school’s expert faculty. “We don’t just offer a practical education. We offer an excellent education,” Weich said. “It’s not just vocational. It’s also teaching students how to think and analyze and apply legal theory.” But the University of Baltimore will always keep its eye on the real-world practice of law, he said. “That’s why UB Law grads succeed in ages all to take advantage of hands-on experience before graduation. Weich said his first year has gone by quickly and he’s happy with the team he assembled to move the law school forward. “We’ve got a good group working on this project,” he said. “We’re feeling good.

Fall 2013 | 17 | on the map Colin Starger plots SCOTUS genealogy M Man has made maps for thousands of years to help people navigate their world, the better to understand it. Some of the earliest maps, on the walls of France’s Lascaux caves, are dots representing the stars. With inventions such as the compass, sextant, telescope and printing press, maps became more precise and more widely used. Today, with computers, mapmaking has taken another gigantic leap forward. Professor Colin Starger has a cartographic idea of his own: He is mapping Supreme Court decisions —majority opinions, dissents and concurrences—using computer software to plot relationships that show how various lines of precedent have evolved. That is, he’s mapping the arguments in long-running legal controversies. “It’s about how Supreme Court doctrine works,” said Starger, 43, who joined the UB law faculty in 2010. “In any Supreme Court controversy, litigants will advance many arguments and cite competing precedents. And then the court will choose a winner in the case by choosing one line of precedent over another.” Then that case itself becomes precedent for future litigants to cite. “This creates a chain of precedent,” Starger said. “Opinion A cites Opinion B, which in turn cites Opinion C, and so on all the way back to the Constitution.” The genesis of the mapping project— which has been subsidized by a University of Baltimore grant and law school support—was Starger’s research on dissenting opinions in the high court’s due-process jurisprudence. “I wanted to figure out a way to show how dissents contribute to the development of the law and to visually show it,” Starger said. “I want dissent to be part of the story.” Starger, a New York native, took a circuitous route to Baltimore. His father was an international banker and Starg- er lived abroad from ages 2 to 16, with eight years in Hong Kong and stays in Australia, Greece and Malaysia. He finished high school in northern California, where he continued developing a passion for computers conceived in ninth grade. Enrolling at the University of California at Los Angeles, he planned to be a math major but quickly changed direction. “It was way too intense,” said Starger, who switched to history and got involved in competitive debating. After graduating summa cum laude, Starger was hired by a California startup that was developing derivatives-trading software. “It was an exciting time to work in Silicon Valley and I was financially independent right out of college, but at the end of the day I wasn’t interested in derivatives,” Starger said. He soon discovered what he was interested in: prisons and the pursuit of | 18 | Baltimore Law By Joe Surkiewicz justice for innocent prisoners. His watershed moment came in 1992, when he was arrested during a demonstration in San Francisco. The protest was called after the acquittal of four L.A. police officers charged with savagely beating black motorist Rodney King, a 1991 incident recorded on videotape and widely viewed around the world. “The police arrested everyone within a square block,” Starger said, recalling the Mission District rally. “I spent two and a half days in jail and it completely changed my worldview.” After being slapped in plastic handcuffs and hustled onto a bus, Starger and other demonstrators were taken to the Alameda County jail. “My first memory of that place is of the intake,” Starger said. “You had to take off all metal—earrings and so on. The punk rocker in the line right in front of me took about 30 minutes to get all the studs and rings out of his face.” A National Lawyers Guild attorney represented Starger at his arraignment. “There was no charge, just release,” said Starger, who recalled that he and a friend who’d also been arrested were shipped back across the Bay Bridge to San Francisco and dropped off near a freeway. “The experience was eye-opening,” Starger said. “I was treated like a criminal. We were all scum in the eyes of the authorities. I developed a very strong suspicion that what I understood of the world was wildly incomplete, that I had not glimpsed the whole truth and that I should try to find out more.” Said Starger: “If they treated a middle-class white guy like that, what about others?” He set out to investigate, working with the American Friends Service Committee and volunteering on prison visits. After these experiences, Starger applied to law school. “I decided to make my money where my mouth was,” he said. Starger said he’d sworn never to go into law, as most of his friends from the UCLA debating team had done. “But I was wrong,” he said. “I saw how incredibly helpful lawyers were when I was arrested.” Fast forward: Starger was accepted at Columbia. After graduating in 2002— he served as graduation speaker for his J.D. class—Starger clerked for Magistrate Judge Michael Dolinger in the Southern District of New York and in 2003 was hired as a staff attorney by the Innocence Project at the Cardozo School of Law. “It was a phenomenal job,” said Starger, who was the lead counsel on four DNA exonerations, including one off Oklahoma’s death row. Starger then moved on to the Lawyering Program at New York University, where he taught legal research, writing and lawyering skills to first-year students. Doing so helped him make the transition from practice to academia. “The academic thing made sense and deepened my study of rhetoric— what persuades, which goes back to Aristotle,” he said. It was at this point that he began conceiving a way to represent doctrinal thought visually. “The computer programmer side of me kicked in,” Starger said. “I could picture how the software could work.” He got in touch with his high school friend Darren Kumasawa, a programmer. “As we went to work I realized it could work for the Supreme Court and I saw its potential,” said Starger, who in his second year at UB received a provost’s technology grant to develop the mapping technology for use in the classroom. “It mixes the things I love, debate and rhetoric, drawing connections and relationships, using computer schematics and math,” Starger said. The maps are genealogical, showing the different lines of argument that led to a decision. They distill arguments that can run 30 pages or more and they clearly locate the controversy. Practically, the maps help law professors teach any area of doctrine, Starger said, adding that appellate advocates also could use maps to determine the essence of competing traditions. Professor Amy Sloan, associate dean for academic affairs, has used Starger’s mapping technology. “As a professor I have to look at the whole body of law on a particular subject to see what to emphasize and deemphasize to help students see the big picture,” Sloan said. “[The maps] help me put together a course that will make sense to students.” Sloan said being able to follow the “trail” of jurisprudence visually from one point to the other allows students to more easily grasp the development of doctrine and, moreover, gives them a look at how U.S. legal institutions operate. Starger said creating a doctrinal map is far from sketching out a kind of legal Cliff’s Notes. “It’s not automated,” he said. “It requires reading and interpreting lines of authority and then presenting it in a way that’s nearly instantaneous. It’s a way to present the basic business of law.” Hope Keller contributed reporting to this article.

Holder. She argued that the court must not roll back voting rights, specifically Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, which requires “covered jurisdictions” to get federal approval of voting changes before they can implement them. Wrote Daniels: “Many of the outlawed acts of the past have comparable companions in this new millennium. Poll taxes are the forefathers of voter ID laws, and the old literacy tests are similar to proof of citizenship laws. These contemporary methods of voter suppression may not be as overt as George Wallace standing in the schoolhouse door or Bull Connor refusing to register African-American citizens to vote, but the impediments to voter registration and Dean Ronald Weich In an op-ed published in The Daily Record on Feb. 21, Dean Weich addressed concerns about upheaval in legal education and in the legal marketplace and described the School of Law as well-positioned to flourish despite the changes. Wrote Weich: “Increasingly, lawyers work in tandem with other professionals on multi-faceted assignments. They must be fluent in the sophisticated information technology that dominates both litigation and commercial matters today. They are often judged—and compensated—according to the outcomes they achieve rather than the hours they tally. And in this fastpaced, competitive atmosphere, law school graduates don’t always have the luxury of on-the-job training. Not all law schools will successfully adapt to this brave new world, but I’m confident the University of Baltimore will do so.” voter participation are very much the same in intent and impact.” PROFESSOR DIONNE KOLLER Professor Koller was quoted in an April DC Bar cover story titled “Playing It Safe: Are Concussions Ruining Sports?” Koller said she believed football could adjust its rules and still thrive. “The NFL … can change the expectations of the fans by evolving the game and emphasizing passing, catching, running, kicking, and strategy,” she wrote. “There’s a lot that goes on in that sport. It doesn’t have to be marginalized because it loses some of the violence. Look at [Olympic] hockey—people start appreciating the strategy and the team aspects when you take out the fights.” PROFESSOR MICHAEL MEYERSON Professor Meyerson published an op-ed in The Baltimore Sun on April 21 about cyberbullying. Wrote Meyerson: “Cellphones and the Internet have not only altered the way we communicate, they have changed the way we can injure one another.

He had planned to practice law on the Eastern Shore, where he lived with his wife, Tui. Before enrolling in law school, Minderhout worked as an editor, writer, translator and teacher. Fall 2013 | 31 | m in closing By Garrett Epps any years ago, William Faulkner had an epiphany. “One day,” the author said later, “I seemed to shut the door between me and all publisher’s addresses and book lists. I said to myself, Now I can write.” As a law professor, I’ve spent nearly two decades fretting about law review editors and webmasters. One day about four years ago, I decided I would write something just for myself. Maybe only I would ever read it, but the writing would be fun. Thus, for nearly two years I read the Constitution’s text every day, and wrote— for my own satisfaction alone—an analysis of what the Constitution really says, article by article, clause by clause, amendment by amendment. It was fun, and more than fun: It was the most satisfying work I have done in my 20 years as a legal scholar. It was the kind of experience law teaching is supposed to provide and too seldom does—the chance to think about the law and the Constitution independent of the latest headlines and the vagaries of five justices of whatever Supreme Court is current. Remarkably, what I wrote has now been published by Oxford University Press as American Epic: Reading the U.S. Constitution. That fact astonishes me; no one should get paid for having that much fun. I didn’t read the Constitution seeking light on the subjects of the day—the Affordable Care Act, same-sex marriage, the Voting Rights Act. Instead, I just read, in all the ways I know how. I used the modes of Bible reading I learned in a Christian school decades ago; I used my training as a lawyer, with specific techniques in interpreting contracts and statutes. I used ways of reading I learned many years ago as a folklore major in college. And finally, I read the Constitution as lyric poetry. I learned something from each way of reading. Some parts of the Constitution are Homeric; some are as dry as the English Statute of Frauds. Some are as elusive as a poem by Emily Dickinson, and some—for example, the “thou shalt nots” of the Bill of Rights—echo the thunder atop Mount Sinai. Sometimes we find the meaning in the thunder—and sometimes in the still small voice. I think most citizens should take time to give the Constitution—even the “boring parts”—a careful read. Though it contains many disparate parts, “we the people” need to read the entire text—and, whoever we are, to read it with our entire selves. “Law, say the gardeners, is the sun,” the poet W.H. Auden once wrote; and gardeners may see in the Constitution a diagram of growth; engineers a blueprint; scientists the ongoing record of an experiment. All these modes of reading should play a part in our national game of interpretation. The Constitution is not just for judges and lawyers, nor for historians. It is for all of us. The Russian-American novelist Vladimir Nabokov once suggested that a good reader does not need specialized training but does need a dictionary, some imagination, a good memory and some artistic sense. When I read the Constitution as this kind of reader, it says some surprising things to me. It says some of them in the words it chooses; it says some of them in the way it places words and ideas in conjunction, or separates them; it says some in the words it doesn’t say and the places where it doesn’t say them. Here are some things the Constitution, one way or another, says to me: n It seeks to create a powerful national government, not to restrain it. n It aims to restrain state governments, not to empower them. n It contains seven amendments enacted since 1787 that further restrict the states, and further empower Congress to enforce them. n Congress is the most important political institution in American political life—not the president, not the state governments and certainly not the Supreme Court. n N either state nor federal governments have any power to supervise our spiritual lives. n T he right of citizens to vote, mentioned more often in the text than any other right, is the central right of our form of government. I can’t find anything in the text that allows the Supreme Court to decide that Congress has protected it too much. I could go on, but my reading is my own. You may read it differently. If so, you have my respect as long as you are reading this Constitution. Not Magna Carta; not the Articles of Confederation; not the Declaration of Independence; not Madison’s Notes or The Federalist or The Road to Serfdom. This Constitution, not common law. This Constitution, not “natural law.” This Constitution, not “divine law.” If you are a reader of this Constitution, then I welcome your disagreement; to quote Walt Whitman, our greatest constitutional poet, “every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.” Garrett Epps is a professor at the School of Law.
