Writing in The Baltimore Sun, University of Baltimore School of Law Prof. Steven Grossman weighs the usefulness of narratives in the pursuit of justice - and finds them lacking, such as in the prosecution of the murder of a young girl in Houston.

Writing in The Baltimore Sun, Steve Isberg, associate professor in the University of Baltimore's Merrick School of Business, says that the recent ups and downs in the nation's economy - big job losses one day, and new hiring the next - are a reflection of the real economy.
