Structural Racism and Transportation Policy: The Road Ahead
As our nation continues to grapple with institutional racism, the inequities of transportation policies must be at the center. We use as a case study the defunct Baltimore Red Line project, a proposed 14-mile, east-west transit line that would have linked Baltimore's predominantly Black west-side communities to downtown and southeast neighborhoods, better jobs, and would have created a truly connected mass transit system for the city.

The Caring Lawyer: Applying the Principles of Therapeutic Jurisprudence
Today's most successful attorneys have embraced a new role in their relationships with clients. They see themselves as caring professionals who help clients navigate some of life's most difficult and complicated problems, such as divorce, business startups and dissolution, care of elders and persons with disabilities, and criminal law issues, among others.
Many of these attorneys have developed the skilled application of therapeutic jurisprudence, the perspective that all interventions into clients' legal problems and related nonlegal issues should make matters better, not worse, as a result of the law's involvement. Practitioners of therapeutic jurisprudence respond to the totality of a client's circumstances and become true partners with the clients they serve.
