Byron L. Warnken, the legendary University of Baltimore School of Law professor known to many as "Mr. UB," will retire this spring. He has been at the law school for 45 years – starting as an evening student in 1973 — and helped launch the careers of hundreds of attorneys. Warnken's singular career will be celebrated during a special event in the school on May 3.
The University of Baltimore School of Law, with the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, will offer a free program on March 3 to help Marylanders who make less than $14.50 an hour and owe back taxes. The "Offer in Compromise" program allows taxpayers to offer the Internal Revenue Service an amount they can afford to pay in exchange for the IRS's dropping the amount owed in back taxes.
