JD Transfer Information

Thank you for your interest in transferring to the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Maryland Carey Law is a top 50 law school located in the Baltimore-Washington corridor.  Our approximately 6:1 student to faculty ratio provides students with a collegial and community-based atmosphere while providing them with the myriad of experiential learning opportunities available by being located in the second-largest legal market in the country.  While in law school, you will be a short walk away from three major courthouses, large national law firms, and government offices.

As a transfer student, you will receive many of the same opportunities provided to students who began at Maryland Carey Law for their first year.  As a transfer student, our Career Development Office will contact you immediately upon your transfer to Maryland Carey Law, working with you individually to arrange internships and externships during the next school year and summer.  Most transfer students are also eligible to petition for one of our five Academic Journals, try out for one of our many Trial Teams and audition for our Moot Court Board.  Additionally, transfer students can become actively involved in our approximately 40 student groups.  Please reach out to our Office of Admissions at admissions@law.umaryland.edu if you have any questions!
