Letters to the Editor: Readers rebut letter critical of UM law clinic

Stephen Z. Meehan’s letter (“Dean’s departure is opportunity for reform at UM law clinic,” July 24) about the resignation of the highly-regarded dean of the University of Maryland law school was irresponsible and misleading. As a lawyer, I am ashamed that it was written by another member of my profession. On its face, it appears a continuation of the shameless, divisive public relations campaign waged by Perdue and its agribusiness allies that characterized the Environmental Law Clinic’s lawsuit as part of a “war on the family farmer.”
