MSBA is actively seeking Program Proposals from the Maryland Legal Community to enrich our 2024 event. Submit Your Program Before the Priority Deadline: December 4, 2023.

Sections facilitate connections between MSBA members in every field of practice.

When you join the MSBA, you’ll also have the opportunity to register for one of our 25 unique sections. Organized by practice area, these groups are where MSBA members go to share news and resources, learn from each other via regular events and CLE programming, and stay connected to the profession by way of discussion groups and newsletters.
