Following an international design competition, the selection of a world-class architecture firm, months of planning and the completion of a successful private fundraising campaign, the University of Baltimore will officially break ground for its new John and Frances Angelos Law Center on Aug. 26.
Recognizing that adversarial legal proceedings often have a devastating impact upon children and families involved in contentious cases, a group of more than 60 lawyers, judges, educators, mental health professionals, mediators and financial experts will meet at UB June 24-25 to consider better ways to address family law matters.
The University of Baltimore has received a second $5 million donation for its new law building from UB School of Law alumnus Peter Angelos, LL.B. '61. The gift, following Angelos's initial donation of $5 million in June 2008, signifies UB's achievement of its goal of $15 million in private funding for the building.
Michele Gilman, professor in the University of Baltimore School of Law, has been named a recipient of the University System of Maryland Board of Regents' 2010 Faculty Awards, the highest honor presented by the board to exemplary faculty members.
