Four years ago, Baltimore defense attorney Gregg L. Bernstein emerged from a private practice to run an aggressive campaign targeting a longtime chief prosecutor who Bernstein said had grown complacent.

The incumbent, meanwhile, has run an understated campaign that emphasizes changes he has made to the office.

In-state students now pay about $3,300 in tuition each semester; out-of-state students pay $9,000.
