MLaw Programs is the undergraduate law programming at the University of Maryland. Undergraduate students in any major who are interested in law, justice and society can participate in MLaw Programs through the Law and Society Minor and the Justice and Legal Thought Program.
Dr. Robert Koulish served as a political analyst in the recent Sputnik International news article, "US-Mexico Development Deal Likely to Remain Unrealized - Analysts." This article describes a recent proposal by the President-elect asking the Trump administration to invest in employment opportunities as a means to reduce migration to the United States. Dr. Koulish is quoted as considering this deal to be an effective first step in resolving conflict between the two countries created by undocumented migration to the United States. But, he does not believe such an agreement will be realized unless the Trump administration receives something even greater in return for its investment.
