Consumer Protection Clinic

This Clinic will be offered in spring semester, 2022 as a one-semester clinic for 5 or 7 credits, in the student’s choice. (The hours students will be expected to devote to the clinic will be adjusted to reflect the credits.) Students who took the Consumer Protection course/seminar in fall semester, 2021, will receive admission preference. The Clinic satisfies the Cardin requirement.

The Professor who teaches the course will help to supervise students who will be placed in the Consumer Protection Division of the State Attorney General’s Office. Students will work on all phases of litigation, from investigation through litigation.

Through the classes and legal work, the students will gain valuable insights into the substance of Consumer Law and how the State Attorney General’s Office seeks to enforce a broad variety of consumer laws that protect all Marylanders, especially low- and moderate-income families, including through litigation, administrative proceedings, and negotiations.

In addition to the legal work, students must be prepared for and participate in class and attend a weekly supervisory meeting with Professor Millemann.

Students who enroll in this clinic are encouraged to take one or more of the following: Consumer Protection Seminar or Course, Business Associations, Bankruptcy, or Counseling and Negotiation.

Limited to 6 students.
