Certificate in Family Law program highlighted in Daily Record

The University of Baltimore’s new Certificate in Family Law program was the focus of two recent Daily Record articles, “UB Law to offer first family law certificate program in the nation” (March 29) and “UB Law program helps you learn the ins and outs of family law” (April 3).

The program is the first of its kind in the nation. (Three other law schools have LL.M. programs in family law: Hofstra University, Illinois Institute of Technology’s Chicago-Kent College of Law and Loyola University Chicago.)

The new, 16-credit program addresses a growing demand for a family law curriculum that offers a holistic blend of theory and practice. In 2015, nearly half of Maryland’s trial court filings — 43 percent — consisted of family law cases. The post-J.D. program is designed for new attorneys beginning to practice family law and for attorneys seeking to add family law expertise to their practice.

Applications are being accepted now for the program, which begins this fall. Participants can complete the certificate in a year or can take classes at their own pace. Classes will be offered on weekends and in the evenings.
