The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law’s 2023 Hooding Ceremony on May 19 will feature a keynote address from former Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, who served as the state’s 46th attorney general from 2015 to 2023.
As a leading figure in Maryland legal circles for over three decades, Frosh has partnered with Maryland Carey Law to advance access to justice and train the next generation of lawyers committed to equal justice for all.
One of his primary efforts as attorney general was to protect Maryland consumers, recovering millions from organizations and businesses taking advantage of unsuspecting people. This work extended to supporting and invigorating a longtime partnership with Maryland Carey Law’s Clinical Law Program through which students in the Consumer Protection Clinic work under the supervision of lawyers in the Consumer Protection Division of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office.
Additionally, he chaired the Maryland Cybersecurity Council on which two Maryland Carey Law faculty members sit. His final meeting as chair of the council took place in Westminster Hall at the law school.
Prior to his tenure as attorney general, Frosh served in the Maryland General Assembly for 28 years, 20 in the Senate and eight in the House of Delegates.
There, one of his central goals was to promote stronger environmental policies and ensure state enforcement of environmental laws. In this effort, he also joined forces with Maryland Carey Law, enabling students in the Environmental Law Clinic opportunities to work on cases to protect the Chesapeake Bay.
The Maryland Carey Law Hooding Ceremony will take place at the Hippodrome Theatre. More information is available on Maryland Carey Law’s graduation page.
