It is the first in a line of programming to bring world renowned leaders to ignite critical discussion and inspire action among all legal professionals in Maryland. The first Spark Series discussion, entitled Democracy in Peril: The Role of Lawyers and the Legal Profession, will explore the role of lawyers as Guardians of Justice. The event will feature a discussion with Sherrilyn Ifill, President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF). The event will be livestreamed on Thursday, January 13, 2022 at 6 p.m.
The Maryland State Bar Association’s 125th anniversary presents more than an opportunity to commemorate the past. It also invites us to pause for critical reflection on the state of our profession, how we have wielded our position of influence historically ; how we might exercise that privilege responsibly going forward, and, finally, what we imagine and dare to reimagine about the legal profession’s role in the future of justice in our state, nation, and world.
