Welcome to the first issue of Baltimore Law , the magazine of the University of Baltimore School of Law.
The Fall 2013 publication is designed to introduce Dean Ronald Weich and the new law center, which opened this past spring with appearances by Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, among others.
Said Weich: "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," Weich continued. "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."
We hope you enjoy Baltimore Law and we welcome your thoughts and ideas. And, alumni, please keep us up to date on your doings.
