The School of Law's location in Maryland's largest city and proximity to the state and national capital are uniquely beneficial, providing our students access to all levels of government and the judiciary. Located near the beautiful Inner Harbor and a short walk from Camden Yards, the school of Law is playing a vital role in the renaissance of Baltimore's downtown.
Our leading role in the Mid-Atlantic region gives our graduates an advantage in pursuing a wide range of careers. Nearby Washington, DC, is the center of the nation's legal institutions and the second largest legal market in the country. Our alumni network includes leaders of local, national and international firms, government agencies, public interest groups, and corporations.
Baltimore has all the advantages of larger cities—a thriving arts community, museums, professional sports, charming neighborhoods and outstanding cuisine—but is more affordable than most.
The law school is located on the dynamic University of Maryland, Baltimore campus. Featuring professional schools in medicine, public health, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy and social work, UMB is home to a state-of-the-art BioPark that is bringing together researchers and businesses to expand Maryland's growing biotechnology industry.
The law school is a short commute from Capitol Hill, and Maryland's capital in Annapolis.
