Baltimore is a destination & a departure point
The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law is part of the Baltimore-Washington corridor and is located in downtown Baltimore. The School of Law is within walking distance of several great internship and externship opportunities, including the Baltimore City Circuit Court, the U.S. District Court, the Baltimore Immigration Court, City Hall and offices, and several national and regional law firms. In fact, DLA Piper, one of the world's largest law firms, has two offices in Baltimore! You are also a short drive away from other major companies located in Baltimore, such as T. Rowe Price, Under Armour, and Legg Mason.
Drive just 30 miles southeast and find yourself in Annapolis, interning at the Maryland State House and arguing to support legislation you drafted in a Maryland Carey Law clinic. You can also seek out a clerkship in Annapolis at the Maryland Court of Appeals.
Hop in the car or board the MARC train (Camden Station is within walking distance from the law school) and take the short 38 mile trip to Washington, D.C. to work for the Department of Justice, the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the Department of Health and Homeland Security, the Environmental Protection Agency, Congress, or other trade associations, NGOs, non-profits, govenrment agencies, or major law firms.
Get Started in Baltimore. Stay here, or go anywhere!
|The Center of It All|
The Mid-Atlantic is a densely populated urban strip hugging the coast from Washington, D.C. to New York - the two largest legal markets in the country.
It's easy to get around. Planes, trains and now low-fare luxury buses with wi-fi run up and down the northeast connective corridor.
Almost nine million people live in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. area. Commuting is common and easy.
