Prospective Students: Visit Maryland Carey Law

Deciding which law school to attend is a task fraught with competing factors: faculty reputation; location; cost; experience; specialty program strength; and alumni network – just to name a few. That’s why Maryland Carey Law opens its doors and classrooms every year to help make the decision as easy as possible. 

“We believe transparency is key to communicating the benefit of a Maryland Carey Law degree,” notes Katrin Hussmann Schroll, director of admissions. “We want prospective students to explore our school and experience the collegial and collaborative community that makes us unique.”

As part of their Visit Maryland Program, the admissions office offers a variety of ways for prospective students to explore the school, including open houses, law school preview days, chat sessions, class visits, and tours.

CLASS VISITS:
Selected first-year day classes are open to visitors Monday through Friday this fall from Tuesday, September 2 to Friday, November 21. Prospective students will sit in on a real class, experiencing the culture in the classrooms and the scholarship of our faculty.
