Academic Advising

Students are encouraged to speak with faculty members about programs with which they are associated, subject areas of their expertise and courses they will be teaching. In addition, the Office of Academic Affairs (law-academicaffairs@law.umaryland.edu) and the Office of Student Affairs (osa@law.umaryland.edu) are available to talk about curriculum matters and the academic program. The Director of Law Registration and his staff in the Office of Registration and Enrollment (OR&E) (reg_enroll@law.umaryland.edu) are valuable sources of information about the academic rules and degree requirements. 

Students may also wish to consult Professor Emeritus Hornstein's Course Selection Advice.

As Director of the Academic Achievement Program, Professor Russell McClain rmcclain@law.umaryland.edu adds another perspective about course selection and academic and career goals. Dean Dana Morris dmorris@law.umaryland.edu and the professional staff of the Career Development Office (CDO) provide academic guidance as it relates to achieving career goals. Students may also wish to consult Professor Emeritus Hornstein's Course Selection Advice. The required courses will prepare you for many subject areas that will be covered on the bar exam, but not all of them. You might consider a bar exam subject course to supplement your education in preparation for the bar exam and your future legal practice.

Finally, the faculty members listed below serve as informal advisors for students seeking guidance in these subject areas.
