In this clinic, you will be introduced to the basic skills of law practice by excellent mentors who are civil prosecutors in the Maryland Office of Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division, while under the general supervision of Professor McCray-Worrall. You will help investigate consumer scams, especially those that target the unsophisticated, and assist in litigation. Your work may include researching legal issues, drafting discovery requests, briefing motions, interviewing victims and finding facts, preparing legal pleadings, assisting with legislative projects, and more. Many private and public law firms and lawyers have substantial consumer practices, making this clinic an exceptional addition to any resume.
The amount of transferable skills I got in this clinic is immeasurable.
