JD, LLM, JSD
Three levels of legal education grounded in legal analysis, ethical context, and practical lawyering.
Open to current JD students, this certificate builds expertise and skills in a highly sought-after niche of the legal realm — one of only two such JD programs nationwide. Practicing attorneys and current JD students can also participate in Maine Law’s annual Information Privacy Summer Institute.
What people are saying
“The invaluable skills and relationships that I gained during my externships at Maine Law allowed me to start my career in Compliance, which perfectly blends my interests in both business and law. The externship program demonstrates Maine Law’s commitment to supporting a wide array of career aspirations including those that fall outside of traditional client advocacy.”
“My externship experience was eye-opening. Beforehand, I had a vague inkling that I wanted to practice municipal and land use law after graduation. My experience cemented that thought. I was able to convert ideas to practice, to tackle a wide range of real, immediate issues, and interact with city administrators, staff, and citizens, in a way that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.”
