The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law believes that effective legal education must combine classroom teaching with actual lawyering experiences and the development of practical abilities. Through our nationally recognized Clinical Law Program, students learn by serving real-life clients and graduate with the skills needed to succeed in the modern legal environment. A wide range of externships and practicums offer students additional opportunities to gain experience.
Additionally, the School of Law is committed to a strong partnership with the local, state and federal bench. Our Asper Fellowship Program gives students opportunities to obtain credit for supervised work with state and federal courts.
