MSBA will continue its comprehensive and award-winning virtual connections and digital information efforts for the remainder of 2020.  In-person programs to resume in 2021. 

MSBA continues to monitor the situation related to COVID-19, Maryland cases, CDC guidelines, and state responses through Governor Hogan’s office. The CDC and Governor Hogan continue to advise against large in-person gatherings and Governor Hogan has issued a public health advisory for all out-of-state travel. A recent increase in hospitalizations has paused Maryland reopening plans. Different parts of the state are being impacted by the virus to varying degrees. Accordingly, many organizations and schools have decided to “go virtual” for the rest of 2020.

MSBA virtual sessions and digital delivery has been consumed by tens of thousands. Over 23K hours of online learning and general information sessions have been consumed by attorneys all across the state.

Continued Free CLE for our Members

From March to June 2020, thousands of legal professionals consumed thousands of hours of free MSBA learning through our 30+ original COVID-19 webinars and from our 150+ on-demand CLE content that we offered for free to the entire profession. In continued support of our members, we are offering a new, member-only benefit from August 1 through December 31, 2020 that will extend 100% free access to online learning that is 90 minutes or less to all active members. Simply go to our CLE catalog HERE to access this incredible benefit.
