The work of a law student can be intellectually challenging and rewarding. It can also be demanding and stressful. At Maine Law, we are deeply committed to student wellness. We have programming starting at Orientation and running throughout the year, including Mindful Mondays, Wellness Week, and peer-led discussion groups.

Just a short walk from the Maine Law building, the Sullivan Recreation and Fitness Complex at the University of Southern Maine is a multipurpose facility designed with your fitness, recreation, and wellness in mind.  And, our student organizations offer terrific opportunities to form relationships and take care of your personal fitness.

Health and Counseling Services

Maine Law students can access a range of services through the University Health and Counseling Services (UHCS) at USM. UHCS provides health care, including wellness exams, lab services, immunizations, primary care, women’s health screening, birth control, STD testing, as well as individual and group counseling, to students taking 6 credits or more.

Health Insurance

The University of Maine System requires proof of health insurance as a condition of enrollment for all Maine Law students taking 6 credits or more. In conjunction with this, a Student Health Insurance Policy (SHIP) is available.
