It's all fine and well to exonerate Law Schools offering consumer law for people interested in pursuing an honorable career assisting and defending consumers. The inherent problem with defending consumers is overcoming the corruption that exist within the Courts and clerks offices. Attorneys are filing massive amounts of disingenuous or fraudulent claims in every court in Maryland and across the country. Judges are rubber stamping either default judgments or summary judgments that are unlawful according to UCC rules, controlling law, and state debt collection laws. Until the controlling bodies (Appeals Courts or the State Bar) end fraud being filed openly and notoriously by corrupt attorneys nothing will change for consumers. The illegal debt collection scheme that has inhibited the Maryland Judiciary is akin to the actions and behavior of a criminal syndicate. As long as judges and corrupt attorneys are becoming fabulously rich off of the backs of fraud used against innocent victims with the backing of the courts nothing will ever change. Hopefully a new young bred of honest attorneys who care about the quality of our justice system and our society will fight the evil posture of the justice system's current demeanor towards consumers who are being railroaded with fraud by courts that are obviously biased and prejudice.

At Howard, I (a tenure-track faculty member) teach Consumer (Finance) Law every other year, alternating with a consumer bankruptcy seminar.

For G'town there are three full-time, tenure-track faculty who teach in the area: Anne Fleming, David Hyman, and Adam Levitin. Note that we have a former Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection on the faculty, but he doesn't teach in the area!
