At the University of Baltimore School of Law, you will learn doctrine, theory and skills through traditional study and through clinical and lawyering courses. We strive to make sure that all students attain critical core competencies. Your education will be enriched by work on journals, externships, membership in student organizations, moot court teams, student government, and your participation in centers and programs focused on local, national and global issues. The School of Law also offers opportunities to study abroad so that you may focus on international and comparative law.

The School of Law offers a full-time day program, a part-time evening program, and a part-time day program—all are designed to give you the maximum amount of flexibility you need to be a successful student. The School of Law's required course offerings provide a solid foundation in the fundamentals of the law while developing the legal skills to practice law. Upper level courses offer a range of in-depth concentrations that provide you with a sophisticated understanding of a particular area of law. Advisors in the Office of Academic Affairs are here to help you select the schedule that works for you. 

We take professionalism seriously here.  Students at the University of Baltimore School of Law must exhibit high standards of academic and professional responsibility.  Our academics are governed by the Honor Code which is implemented by the student Honor Board.
