After Baltimore Unrest, Md. Law School To Offer New Course

BALTIMORE (AP) -- A law school in Baltimore says it will offer a new course examining the unrest in the city following the death of Freddie Gray, who died in police custody earlier this year.

The University of Maryland's Francis King Carey School of Law announced Tuesday it is offering a new course titled, "Freddie Gray's Baltimore: Past, Present, and Moving Forward." The school says the eight-week course will begin in September and be taught by law school faculty members as well as other academics, practicing professionals and elected officials. The school says the course will look at the causes and possible solutions to the unrest.

The course will be open to law school students as well as students at the University of Maryland School of Social Work.
