Who We Are

MSBA Speakers’ Bureau is a collection of over 200 volunteer attorneys, throughout the entire state, who go into the community and speak to the public about numerous legal issues. 

The Bureau’s 41 topics range from adoption, bankruptcy, wills and estate planning to taxes and the legal needs of senior citizens.  MSBA attorneys are willing to speak and inform the public about the law.

The Maryland State Bar Association is a voluntary, non-profit membership organization comprised of more than 23,000 attorneys and judges.  The MSBA monitors judicial and legislative issues, offers legal education opportunities and promotes leadership within the legal profession.  The MSBA offers public service programs to ensure the delivery of quality legal services to all citizens and is committed to furthering the efficient administration of justice and equality for all.

Any group interested in having a member of the MSBA Speakers’ Bureau visit their organization should contact Lisa Muscara of the MSBA at lmuscara@msba.org, or 800-492-1964.  Click here for the complete listings of topics.
