On Wednesday, Nov. 7, the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law convenes a panel of experts to discuss the issues raised by the prevalence of arbitration clauses, and how they are used.
Representatives of consumer interests, corporations, and the courts will discuss and defend their viewpoints in a session that begins at 4 p.m. and runs at least until 6 p.m. The Business Law program at the UM Carey School of Law invites your coverage of the event; your RSVP is requested.
The panelists are: F. Paul Bland, Jr., Public Justice; Christopher R. Drahozal, University of Kansas School of Law; Alan S. Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr, LLP; Nicole Frush Munro, Hudson Cook, LLP; Hon. Randall J. Newsome, JAMS, Retired Fed. Bankruptcy Judge; and William R. Wade-Gery, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The moderator is Christine A. Edwards of Winston & Strawn, LLP.
The program is hosted through the generous support of the Pittler Fund for Excellence in Business Law. It will be held in the Ceremonial Moot Court Room. The program reflects the UM Carey School’s commitment to engaging in critical and creative thinking about cutting edge issues in business law.

Transparent electronics devices are present in today’s thin film displays, solar cells, and touchscreens. The future will bring flexible versions of such devices. Their production requires printable materials that are transparent and remain highly conductive even when deformed. Researchers at INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials have combined a new self-assembling nano ink with an imprint process to create flexible conductive grids with a resolution below one micrometer.
To print the grids, an ink of gold nanowires is applied to a substrate. A structured stamp is pressed on the substrate and forces the ink into a pattern. “The...

On the monitor, a brain spins slowly and can be examined from every angle. Suddenly, some sections start glowing, first on the side and then the entire back of...
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered an unusual property of purple bronze that may point to new ways to achieve high temperature superconductivity.
While studying purple bronze, a molybdenum oxide, researchers discovered an unconventional charge density wave on its surface.
Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.
Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...
Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases
Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...
