This Section kicked off this bar year’s theme, professional development, by collaborating with the Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland, the University of Maryland, and the University of Baltimore to create a new program, the Pro Bono Connection, as a means of providing information to young lawyers on how to use pro bono opportunities to gain valuable legal experiences. Its focus on professional development included increased nuts and bolts programs such as practicing before Appellate and Administrative Courts as well as collaborating with the CLE Department to create a new CLE program, “New Maryland Lawyer 7.0”. The Section continued its longstanding commitment to community service with the One Bar, One Community project, through which volunteers operated a legal hotline for those impacted by Superstorm Sandy, and also hosted its 22nd Annual Charity Event in support of the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts. It will present an a program, “Evidence Refresher”, featuring the Hon. Paul W. Grimm and the Hon. Joseph F. Murphy, former Chief Judge, Maryland Court of Special Appeals, at the MSBA Annual Meeting.
