MSBA is the home of the legal profession in Maryland

The Maryland State Bar Association (MSBA), home to the Maryland legal profession, represents more than 20,000 attorneys and is the state’s leading voice for the law community. MSBA members encompass the entire legal sphere—lawyers, judges, paralegals, law firm administrators, law students, pro bono organizations, legal nonprofits, and more—at every career stage and within every legal specialty.
Since its founding in 1897, MBSA has been committed to developing courageous and collaborative bar leaders in the Maryland law community and beyond. Through Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs and publications, to community outreach and advocacy initiatives, MSBA honors the passion and purpose of Maryland’s legal community by empowering them with a toolkit of knowledge, training, and an influential peer network, designed to excel and enhance their professional leadership abilities and upward career mobility.
