Chaz Arnett, JD

Criminal Procedure

Race and Technology


Professor Arnett teaches in the areas of criminal procedure, race and technology, juvenile law, and education law, and his research interests lie at the intersection of race, surveillance, and technology. His scholarship examines the ways in which surveillance measures are used within the criminal justice system, in corrections and policing, and the impact these practices have on historically marginalized groups and vulnerable populations. His research agenda is aimed at highlighting how law and policy pave the way for new technologies, through their design and implementation, to reproduce and entrench legacies of state-sponsored racialized surveillance. Before joining the faculty, Professor Arnett was an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and a trial attorney with public defender’s offices in Baltimore and New Orleans. As a recipient of the Satter Human Rights Fellowship, he also has worked with the International Center for Transitional Justice on issues of constitutional development in Zimbabwe and on asylum cases for Zimbabwe refugees in South Africa.

Before joining the faculty at the Francis King Carey School of Law, he practiced tax law at McDermott, Will & Emery, LLP in Washington, D.C., where his practice included bankruptcy taxation, intellectual property transactions, and international tax planning. He also worked as a software design engineer for Microsoft Corp. and is the inventor of U.S. patents 7,617,204 and 7,580,951.

Russell McClain, JD


Law School Associate Professor and Associate Dean Russell McClain graduated Order of the Coif from the University of Maryland School of Law in 1995. From 1995 until 2005, Professor McClain was a civil litigator in Los Angeles, California. Professor McClain began teaching in the fall of 2005 as a legal writing instructor at Howard University School of Law. Professor McClain began teaching at the University of Maryland School of Law in 2006, and he received a full-time appointment to the faculty in 2007. Since then, he has worked as the Director of the law school’s Academic Achievement Program, which focuses on assisting with the academic development of law students. In 2016, Professor McClain was promoted to law school associate professor, and he was appointed by the law school Dean to the position of Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion. He also is a member of the President’s Diversity Advisory Council of the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Professor McClain’s scholarly interest is in the psychological factors that affect academic performance, including stereotype threat and implicit bias. This research explores whether stereotype threat (the fear of confirming negative group stereotypes) and implicit bias (subconscious categorizations that are biased against racial/ethnic minorities and women) work together to suppress the performance of these groups in higher education, including in law school. See Russell A. McClain, Helping Our Students Reach Their Full Potential: The Insidious Consequences of Ignoring Stereotype Threat, 17 RUTGERS RACE & L. REV. 1 (2016); Russell A. McClain, Bottled at the Source, Recapturing the Essence of Academic Support as a Primary Tool of Education Equity for Minority Law Students, 18 MD. L.J. OF RACE, RELIGION, GENDER & CLASS 139 (2018). Professor McClain has made dozens of presentations and conducted numerous workshops for educational institutions and professional groups. Professor McClain is the President of the Association of Academic Support Educators. He also has served as a member of the Law School Admissions Council’s Diversity Committee. Professor McClain was honored by the University of Maryland Chapter of the Black Law Students Association as the 2006-2007 Alumnus of the Year. In 2011 and 2018, the chapter named him Professor of the Year.
