Areas of Study

Gender and Family Law

If you are interested in gender or family law, we offer extensive coursework and some of the most cutting edge programs in these areas of the law. From child custody, marital property, and elder law to a wide variety of gender-related topics, you can learn about gender and family law from nationally recognized legal scholars who are well-respected thought leaders in this area of the law.

We also offer many ways for you to get hands-on, practical experience in gender and family law. In our Gender Violence Clinic you will have the opportunity to provide real-world legal counsel to clients experiencing intimate partner violence. In our Erin Levitas Initiative, you can work with middle school students in Baltimore City to help them identify, question, and reject the destructive ideas that give rise to sexual violence. Our one-of-a-kind Women, Leadership, and Equality program will help you understand the historical and structural barriers that prevent women from ascending to positions of leadership, and develop the skills you need to identify and attain leadership roles.
