Now Announcing: MSBA Connect

Online Discussion Platform Upgrade

MSBA is now offering your committee access to MSBA Connect, our new online discussion community exclusively for members. This new tool will replace the current Email Discussion Lists (more commonly referred to as the MSBA’s ListServs) as we modernize our online presence. MSBA Connect will provide members with a more functional and reliable means of connecting with each other well into the future.

Make sure you’re logged in with the email you use for your MSBA account and click the button below. You’ll find detailed FAQs and “How-To” videos to help you get started.

Access MSBA Connect

This Committee works to enhance the public’s understanding of the law through community education and outreach.

It has facilitated several ongoing public service projects on behalf of MSBA, including its series of 24 public awareness legal information guides, which are disseminated to the public free of charge; its Speakers’ Bureau, through which volunteer attorneys go out into the community and educate the public about the law; and, in conjunction with the Young Lawyers Section, the One Bar/One Community volunteer opportunities, which this year included such initiatives as the MSP Polar Bear Plunge benefiting Special Olympics Maryland, BARCs, The Friends of Patterson Park, Operation Welcome Home, Honor Flight, and many more.

The Committee sponsors an annual Law Day program in conjunction with MyLaw (formerly the Citizenship Law-Related Education Program, CLREP).
