At the University of Maine School of Law students receive an intense, rigorous legal education, in a close-knit community that fosters collaboration. Students are supported by top-notch professors, adjuncts, visitors, as well as practicing lawyers and judges who engage in teaching and other service to the Law School.


The three-year curriculum offers courses that range from the bedrock foundation of the socratic method, to legal aid clinics where students represent real clients in real Maine courts. The underlying purpose of the curriculum is to give students a solid foundation in legal analysis and practical lawyering skills that will serve them well in any field they choose to pursue. Maine Law also offers an Externship Program, where students work alongside seasoned attorneys at law firms, companies, and organizations for academic credit.

In addition to the core J.D. program, Maine Law offers a Certificate in Information Privacy Law, Dual Degree Programs and the post-professional LL.M. and J.S.D. degrees.
