Director Greenberger to Teach Portion of Unique Law Course on Civil Unrest in Baltimore
The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law will begin offering a special topic course this fall entitled Freddie Gray’s Baltimore: Past, Present, and Moving Forward. CHHS Founder and Director Michael Greenberger, who is administering the course, will open the class in early September with an overview of the recent unrest in Baltimore and discuss community policing. The course will also examine causes and possible solutions by focusing on social, economic and other issues, including policing practices, criminal justice, access to housing, health care, education, joblessness and community development.
The law school’s efforts are part of a larger push underway at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, to engage and revitalize the West Baltimore community in which it resides.
