The Clinical Law Program upholds the school's Cardin Requirement and covers the integration of theory and practice through its in-house public interest law firm. Student attorneys represent clients under the close and supportive supervision of faculty practitioners, which enables students to continue the transition from learning to be a lawyer to being a lawyer.
By applying theory to practice, students are able to assist with some of the Clinic's initiatives, including immigration reform, community justice and the interdisciplinary practices of law and social work.
The Clinic has taken a leadership role regionally and nationally through initiatives such as the Law School Consortium Project in order to improve legal education and enhance access to justice.
The Clinic also supports JustAdvice®, a program administered by the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law in partnership with Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service (MVLS). JustAdvice® offers low cost legal consultation to Maryland residents through walk-in consultation sessions as well as on-line chat. Visit the JustAdvice® website to learn more.
