The School of Law's commitment to and support of the pursuit of justice extends beyond this core curricular requirement. Four academic specialty centers in intellectual property, mediation, health and homeland security and tobacco control each have a public service mission, operating as a resource to national and local communities on these issues. Public conferences for the academic community, bench and bar address critical issues facing the legal system. A wide array of student organizations support public service projects, helping students make a difference in the local community. The student-run Maryland Public Interest Law Project provides summer grants for students to work at public interest organizations.
