Advocacy at Work

Through our virtual Coffee and Conversation series, the MSBA continues to bring together Maryland leaders, elected officials, and MSBA members throughout the year to learn about key priorities, challenges, and advocacy opportunities for the legal profession. Join us and our host, former Senator Bobby Zirkin, as we connect with legislators and their support staff, Judiciary partners, the Executive Branch, newly elected officials across the state, and more.

You can tune in virtually in the mornings to connect to these conversations live, or enjoy the sessions on-demand through our website and YouTube channel. Please register through our website (upcoming sessions listed below) and send any questions prior to the sessions to advocacy@msba.org. Prior sessions with links to written recaps and video recordings are also available below.
