Material published in the Maryland Bar Journal may thereafter be reprinted with the Special Committee’s approval and appropriate credit. Unsolicited manuscripts are limited to one submission per year per author.
  • Articles must be submitted electronically to the Content Submission Portal at, in Word or Google document format. Questions can be directed to editor Andrea Solan,

  • Articles should not exceed 2,500 words unless the editor assigns or agrees in advance to a longer length. The title, author’s name, and byline information should appear on the first page.
