University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law

The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law began teaching its first students in 1824, making it one of the oldest law schools in the nation. Today, its outstanding faculty, innovative programs, and superb student body make it one of the most vibrant places to study law.

Taking advantage of its location in the Baltimore-Washington corridor, Maryland Carey Law has a wealth of opportunities for working and learning as part of state and national legal, political, and business communities. Because of its commitment to integrating theory and practice, Maryland Carey Law offers extensive clinical and experiential learning opportunities, an academically rigorous core curriculum, and specialty programs that are consistently recognized as among the very best in the country.

Maryland Carey Law’s student body is talented, diverse, and collegial. The school’s size and low student-to-faculty ratio create a welcoming community dedicated to fully developing each student’s talents. Our nationally distinctive Cardin Requirement provides that each full-time student will have a faculty-supervised experience providing free legal services to people and organizations that lack access to justice. This requirement helps instill a spirit of public service in all students—regardless of their chosen career path—and ensures that students have practice experience when they graduate.

Maryland Carey Law students are recruited by many of the nation’s most respected legal employers. Graduates assume positions of leadership as lawyers and judges, business executives and community advocates, legislators and policymakers, and other agents of social, political, and economic progress.

Maryland Carey Law is fully accredited by the ABA, is a member of the AALS, and has a chapter of the Order of the Coif.
