I support of letter writer Claudia Diamond's idea that new lawyer applicants in Maryland should be required to perform a set number of pro bono volunteer hours before being awarded a license to practice ("Bar exam does not a lawyer make," Nov. 7) I would even go a step further. Each lawyer should be required to provide a set number of pro bono hours each year of practice as well. We currently require our graduating high school students to perform a set number of volunteer hours as a requirement of graduation.

A disbarred Annapolis lawyer was ordered Thursday to serve 18 months in the Anne Arundel County jail plus five years on probation for siphoning nearly $308,000 from a client. Jerold K. Nussbaum, 60, whom Karen Gunther hired to handle her mother's estate, stole most of it in 2005 and 2006, according to prosecutors and court records. He had pleaded guilty in January. "Mr. Nussbaum not only stole my money, but I've lost my home," Gunther, the heir, told Judge Paul A. Hackner, according to a recording of the court hearing.

Clare Lenore Stoudt and Thelma Wynn appeared to have little in common except their age, gender and motherhood, but the two Howard County women were killed just days apart in their homes in what police believe were likely domestic violence incidents. Stoudt, 35, the mother of five children, had worked doggedly for years to graduate from college and then law school in 2008 and was a valued tax attorney at the Washington firm of Pillsbury Winthrop, Shaw and Pittman. "She was a special person," said her boss, Tina Kearns.

Catholic schools in Baltimore propelled George W. McManus Jr. from poverty to success as a lawyer, he says, providing him a solid education. And years later, when the legal tables turned and he needed defense, priests and school officials were there as character witnesses. Now McManus, 92, plans to leave an $8.5 million bequest to benefit the schools he attended as well as other charities. Officials with the Baltimore Community Foundation expect to distribute the funds for years to come, as the fund would generate an estimated half-million dollars a year in interest.

When the CIA's chief lawyer, John Rizzo, first came across the term "enhanced interrogation technique" shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, he was struck by the phrase's deceptive blandness. The words sounded mild, possibly even salutary. But Rizzo knew they referred to the harshest methods used to elicit information from suspected terrorists in custody, including waterboarding, which mimics the experience of drowning. For Rizzo and others, the "EITs", as they were called, were repugnant but necessary for ensuring the nation's safety.

WASHINGTON - An Annapolis lawyer who has long represented unions tried to assure Senate Republicans on Tuesday that she could serve as an impartial member of the National Labor Relations Board. Nancy Jean Schiffer and another attorney are President Barack Obama's latest picks to fill the long understaffed board that hears disputes between workers and management. Obama nominated Schiffer and Attorney Kent Y. Hirozawa last week as part of the deal that ended a GOP filibuster threat and cleared the way for the Senate confirmation of Marylander Thomas E. Perez as labor secretary.

JAMES KRAMON gets a slight twinkle in his eye when he tells about his experience as an assistant U.S. attorney. "One of my responsibilities was prosecuting lawyers," Kramon said, not bothering to conceal the smile on his face. "I hold my colleagues to high standards." So you figure this Kramon guy is not your ordinary lawyer. He delighted in prosecuting other attorneys and now, as if that weren't enough, he's written a book about his profession. What's it called? Why, You Don't Need a Lawyer, of course.

While the lawyer for one Baltimore police officer warned of her client being judged too quickly after allegations surfaced that he helped cover-up a child's killing when the rifle was found in his car, another officer apologized for his own misdeeds in a kickback case. In the middle was Baltimore's embattled police commissioner, Frederick H. Bealefeld III, who came out swinging against bad cops and a perception that his department is full of them. It was a day full of dueling quotes.
