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.

Researchers explore ultrafast control of magnetism across interfaces: A new study discovers how the sudden excitation of lattice vibrations in a crystal can trigger a change of the magnetic properties of an atomically-thin layer that lies on its surface.

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.
The Juncal Viaduct, in Gran Canaria, has served as a reference for Spanish and British researchers to verify that the wind blowing between the pillars on this...
