Lobby Day 2021 (Virtual)

Description

The Maryland State Bar Association (MSBA) and the Maryland Access to Justice Commission (A2JC) remain committed to advocating on behalf of attorneys, firms, and Marylanders. We have worked hard to advocate for the entire profession to protect your interests, from defeating proposed taxation of legal services to providing ongoing Covid-19 support. We’ve been recognized nationally by the American Society of Association Executives from over 10,000 associations for our efforts to defeat taxation of legal services. A2JC has led the efforts of a Covid-19 Task Force with the Attorney General and successfully secured over $11.7 million in Civil Legal Services to ensure housing security. We’ll continue to fight for you.

Join us on January 26, 2021, for our second annual Virtual Lobby Day and show legislators in Annapolis the strength of our profession. Attendees will:

  • Help advance the MSBA’s legislative priorities by meeting virtually with legislators,
  • Hear from MSBA leadership, staff, and legislators on key issues impacting the legal profession and Marylanders’ access to justice,
  • Learn about MSBA’s advocacy efforts and ways to get involved, and
  • Hear keynote speeches from Maryland leaders.

At the MSBA, our highest priority remains the health and safety of our members and our staff. Due to the spread of Covid-19 and current infection rates in Maryland, MSBA’s 2021 Lobby Day will be a complimentary virtual offering to members. The virtual format will give you access to the entire event and allow you to interact with fellow members and legislators from the comfort of your home or office.

Please RSVP by January 21, 2021. We will share MSBA Lobby Day details with registrants via email in the coming weeks, including access information and materials. For questions, contact MSBA Legislative Director Richard Montgomery at (410) 269-6465 or richard@msba.org.
