MLAW provides comprehensive programming in undergraduate legal studies with a curriculum designed to be interdisciplinary, experiential, and applicable to a variety of educational and career opportunities. Taught by UMCP faculty in behavioral and social sciences and arts and humanities, and law faculty from the Francis King Carey School of Law at UMB, the program integrates a social sciences approach to law designed to develop legal and law-related skills. Now in its third year, MLAW programs have more than 300 undergraduate students in the College Park Scholars Justice and Legal Thought living-learning program that serves freshman and sophomore students, and in the Law and Society Minor serving primarily upper-level undergraduate students representing majors from nine UMCP schools.
