For more than a decade, Maryland's Clinical Law Program has been ranked among the nation's top ten by U.S. News & World Report. A national leader, it was the first law school program in the country to receive the John Minor Wisdom Award, the American Bar Association's leading public service honor.
Each year, 20 faculty lead 150 students in providing almost 75,000 hours of free legal services to the community, making the Clinical Law Program one of the region's largest public interest law firms. The Program allows students to work alongside faculty members on real-life cases, and gain a unique combination of theoretical study and practical experience that prepares them to hit the ground running in their legal careers.
The Clinical Law Program provides legal services to individuals, families and communities throughout Maryland in a variety of ways, including working with the professional schools (medical, pharmacy and social work) on interdisciplinary approaches that serve clients holistically.
