Family Law Program Description
The proposed PMC in Family Law program at University of Baltimore provides attorneys with the specialized training needed for the effective practice of family law, including knowledge of the relevant law, knowledge in areas impacting family law cases (e.g., finance, child development, mental health), and the technical skills needed to litigate or otherwise resolve a family law case.  This is achieved through intensive coursework, problem-solving, and simulations of real cases, taught by School of Law full-time faculty and prominent family law practitioners.  To enroll in this program, students must have obtained their J.D. degree.
